And.....some more from the show

Isn't this one a beauty?  My mind is getting a little fuzzy, but I think this one was made by Pam H.  (if I am wrong, please comment and I will give credit, where credit is due.)  Pam is a newer member of Moonlighters and has already taken on many positions within.  She had many pieces of art in the show.
Grandmothers flower garden, by Judy K.  Simply amazing.  All pieced by hand.  I started one of these but quickly decided it would be a great table runner, stopping at 6 flowers. 
A fun batik quilt done by Rose T. and quilted by me.  Rose is very active in our guild, she is our social secretary (puts together our parties and picnics) she is also responsible for the tea room at our show.  I can't count the number of quilts she pumps out in a year.  She is our energizer bunny.
Close up of the quilting. 
I think I have enough for one or two more posts.....hope you are enjoying, and remember

More from Moonlighters Quilt Show

These were from a challenge from a small group that formed from the larger group of Moonlighters.  The top is made by Suz L.  She always has her glasses on her head, loves bead work and crazy quilts.  The bottom is of Linda St A...this too, is a remarkable resemblance.  She even has her finger up like the school teacher she used to be. 
Made by Marilynn D-R.  I made one similiar to this in my favorite civil war colors so it was alot of fun to see this done with Kaffe.
Another made by Tonya A.  I think I quilted this one for her.
Friend Judy A. made this pink beauty.  She didn't have to buy one piece of fabric for this quilt, she is very talented with scraps given to her.  I also quilted this.

Thats all for today, I'll finish the ones I took pictures of tomorrow.

What a great Quilt show

Moonlight Quilters semi annual quilt show was this weekend and wrapped up today.  What a fantastic display and such a broad range of quilting abilities.

This one was made by my good friend Tonya A.  It also won a blue ribbon at the Lynden Fair last week.
Another by Tonya, she has the ability to stretch herself which I greatly admire as I tend to nestle into my comfy little box.  This won a red at the Lynden fair. 
Carrie U is the creator of this little cutie.  She is an amazing artist, and it still baffles me that she doesn't have a stash of fabric.  
I will share more photos tomorrow and tell you a little more about the guild.
