A few quilts from Mid-Atlantic

Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival had some awesome quilts. Overall, the best I have seen in years! This one was fabulous and just my style! Made by Nancy L. Losee. Love the cheddar in the border!

Mary Chalmers of Alexandria, MN made two fabulous crazy quilts.  Amazing work. Above is Crazy with a Twist which won first place for traditional quilts. We are crazy about her twist! 
 Here is a close-up for you to drool over!
 This is a close-up of Mary's other quilt called In Praise of Wool.
Check out Lisa Bongean's blog for a much better picture of In Praise of Wool. What an artist!

Blogger is giving me grief loading photos today, so I will close for now. I know that Mrs. Goodneedle posted photos from Mid-Atlantic also, so check out her blog, From the Strawberry Patch.

More later!

Love them both, but 'Crazy With a Twist' is more me. Wait, I'd have to call mine 'Twisted by the Crazies' wonder I love my vintage crazy quilt pieces so much! They speak to me, and to my life ;)

Thanks for showing these quilts from the show. I love the cheddar in the border of the first one.
