Small Town Quilt Show

 Our local museum, here in Ava, MO, had a small quilt show last Saturday.  There were some beautiful quilts there.  The board members made a beautiful embroidered quilt that they raffled off.

 Here is a vintage crazy patchwork quilt.
 Here is a vintage, friendship quilt from the 1950's.
 I love the lone, different block in the corner!
 Dinnishia Fleetwood painted blocks on her quilt.
 This next quilt was hand quilted and hand appliqued by Ina Fike, the block is Kansas City Star.
 I love the border!

 Kimberly Pitts made a John Deere tractor quilt that was cross stitched.

 Estella Smith made two landscape quilts.  This is something I want to try sometime.

 Sally Hicks made this chip basket quilt back in the 1980's.

I love all of the details on this Virginia Reel quilt.  Estella Smith started this quilt in 1972 and finished it in 2014.  It is kind of hard to see the details with the sun shining through.
 I love the hand embroidered dancing blocks.

 She appliqued musical notes on the quilt.  I love the ric-rac on the border.
 Did you notice the corners?
 This Double Wedding Ring quilt was made in the early 1900's.

I really enjoyed this small quilt show, I will definitely enter some quilts next year!

Thank you so much for the quilt show pics! I love going to quilt shows, though I have never been to a really huge one. I take pictures but wish I could ask the creators the story behind their quilt. So many wonderful stories. Thank you for crediting the creators too.
