Quilts From The 2016 World Quilt Show...

Brynwood Needleworks - World Quilt Show - Neroli Henderson's "Coco"

I'm sharing a few images from the 2015 Orlando World Quilt Show today.
I have more photos, but these are some of my favorites, so I hope you'll like them.

This first quilt is called "Coco", created by Neroli Henderson of St. Kilda, Australia. Coco is 17 years old, and was a mistreated show dog, rescued by Neroli and her family.

The sweet bichon frise' face on the quilt is surrounded by machine stitched text that explains how Coco came to live with his new family incorporating humor in the story. The quilt employs trapunto, confetti (without a sheer overlay); text and free machine quilting. 

It's adorable.

Brynwood Needleworks - World Quilt Show - Donna Douglass "Flourish On The Vine"

This is Donna Douglass' "Flourish On The Vine". Ms. Douglass lives in Appolo Beach, FL. She  used hand piecing and applique' techniques, along with machine quilting. I love her choices of shades of peach and green.

There was no other description on her quilt. It was stunning!

Brynwood Needleworks - Quilt Show - Rahna Summerlin "Grandmother's Cabin"

Another Blue Ribbon winner is Rhana Summerlin's "Grandmother's Cabin". Rhana won her ribbon for Best Machine Workmanship. This piece, using 1930's reproductions fabrics, is a tribute to her grandmother.

The quilt incorporated machine and hand quilting, as well as hand applique'. This quilt is her original design. The quilt measures 91" x 91" square.

Brynwood Needleworks - Quilt Show - Gail Smith "Roses For Katrina"
The last quilt I'll share today is called "Roses For Katrina". Ms. Smith is from Barrington, Illinois, and it won a Green Ribbon (Honorable Mention in the Traditional category). Yup. More applique'. I can't help myself. I love the detail and workmanship in applique' quilts. This quilt was designed by Sue Garmin.

I'll share more quilt photographs from the show on Wednesday. There were so many more gorgeous pieces!

Tag will be here tomorrow. I'll see you again on Wednesday!

Each of these quilts is so beautiful and I can only imagine the labor of love and time sewn into each and every stitch. To see them in person must have been quite an honor. Thank you for sharing these. Monday Bliss...
