My quilts from the show

Thought I'd put photos of the quilts I entered in the show...

The show is really useful in giving me a deadline to finish quilts.

Pensieve string quilt....

 So far this year I have finished 11 quilts.  Realize for several of these that only required putting on a binding!
Obsession

Most of my quilts were bed size.  
Bermuda Seaglass - 106 inches by 106 inches
The largest was king size while the smallest was crib.
My Orca Bay (Bonnie Hunter Mystery)
Carnival Corn (Quilted by Joyce Greer)
Also some were wall-hanging/small quilts...a bit faster to finish!  Several quilters who had seen Carnival Corn on my blog were surprised to find out how small it was.  The blocks are 4-inches...or compare the size of the card to the block in Orca Bay to Carnival Corn.
Scrappy Trip Around the World....a Bonnie Pattern
"Shards of Glass" is the small blue one in the upper middle...
Can't find a photo of a couple quilts...like my Caffine Jitters.  Try and post later.  After hauling them all to the show and back again I think I should put fewer in next time!

Thank you for posting photos of your wonderful quilts. Hard to pic a favorite of these. I love how the color radiate out from the striped center blocks in Obsession. Sea glass attracts my attention since teals and turquoise are my favorites. All nice, bright, eye catching. I'm sure lots of people loved that you shared so many quilts.

Thank you for all the great show pictures! It's been some time since I visited a quilt show and at the moment it seems to be very quiet in our region, so looking at pictures is the second best thing.
Your quilts are beautiful. I think my favorites are Obsession and Carnival Corn. Yummy colors!

Wow! Great quilt work. I have to say, the string really got me. How did I miss that?! You have a lovely variety showing your depth as a quiltmaker. It really is impressive, Sio.

You are so creative and your work, all your quilting, says "I love quilting." That makes me feel good, you inspire!!!

Thank you so much for showing your quilts. They are all fabulous and well deserving of admiration. It's lovely to find a quilter with a style that I can identify as my own. My favourites (and going on a to sew list) are Bermuda glass, Carnival Corn (love it!) and Obsession. Can you direct us in finding patterns/tutorials for these?

No question that you love color! These are all terrifically scrappy and wonderful I agree about deadlines--and now you get to enjoy all those FINISHED beauties!

Thank you so much for sharing all the photos from the quilt show. They are all wonderful. I love your Carnival Corn, and your Orca Bay. I see you made Tonya's Lego quilt. I am working on mine. I think I have about 15 blocks.

Love all of your quilts and thank you for giving us a virtual look at the show. I love the ribbons your guild makes for the show and wonder if there is a pattern. Our guild has a show every other year and making special ribbons would be lovely. Thanks!

Thank you so very much for the armchair tour! I think that my favorite is the Carnival Corn quilt with all it's bright colors and eye movement, but they are all beautiful!
