ASQG Quilt show 2011 ~ part 4

A few more photos of some of the quilts shown at Annie's Star Quilt Guild ~ Harvest of Quilts ~ October 2011 quilt show in Chico, CA USA
We had close to 300 quilts displayed. Check out all 4 of the posts of the show to see but a few of them. Many were hard to photograph because of the lighting. I had fun with a team of members that set up and took down the quilts for the show.
A quilt I exhibited in the show. Black, White and Red All Around is the quilt I made from black and white fabric charms I swapped with members of Alex Anderson's AAQMB in 2003. The pattern is a design by Kathie Holland ~ Inspired by Antique Quilts ~ With Kathie's permission, I also taught this as a class at Cathy's Sew and Vac. Here is a link to a previous post with pics of the quilts made by the class.

This quilt made by Janet Alexander 
is an antique linen table cloth that she machine quilted...
Quilt by Janet A.
using a technique taught by Cindy Needham. 
Cindy is a local quilter and member of our guild
 well known for teaching machine quilting. 
Here is a link to her blog,

The next three quilts are made and machine quilted by Lynne Pillus. Lynne is another talented local quilter here in Chico. Lynne is doing a trunk show and teaching a workshop at our guild, Annie's Star Quilt Guild in November. I am sew happy because I am signed up for her workshop!

Following is Taren's Floating Curves. I am showing it again, right side up this time and also because it is one of my favorites of the show. Her machine quilting is amazing! I wish you could see it better in the photo.

 Here is my mom, enjoying the show!
Hope you have too. Wish there was a way to take better photos to show off machine quilting as well as the quilts themselves. As I work on improving my machine quilting skills and photography, I really appreciate how many talented quilters we have here in the Chico, Paradise and Oroville area.

We also have wonderful vendors that complete the show.
Rabbit Hole, Honeyrun Quilters and Cathy's Sew and Vac are all LQSs in Chico
Morning Star Quilts is located in Paradise and owned by a good friend, Marsha.
Marsha, Rocki and I worked together at FRH in Paradise, CA many moons ago
