Quilting A Legacy show in Walker, MN

There were so many beautiful and inspiring quilts at the show!  This is a design by Bonnie Hunter

 this one is by Bonnie as well
 This was made by my aunt, and designed by Primitive Gatherings.  I made one too - it is being quilted - can't wait to get it back!

 This was made by Bev Wignes - it came with a funny story - I believe she gave this to one of her kids, and their dog promptly chewed a hole in it!  She repaired it and challenged everyone to try to find the repair. Let's just say she did a really great job fixing it - you would be hard pressed to find it!
 This quilt is so striking, but it hurts my head to think about making it!  Look at the bright, ugly carpet - I was too lazy to crop and edit these pictures!
 This was one of my favorites - just simple, but I love all of the different fabrics
 Aunt Nancy made this one too - their guild did a class on this

 This one was the runner up of the Viewer's Choice award

 Same pattern as above - don't they look different!?
 Really nice antique quilt

 This is also Aunt Nancy's - pattern and kit from The Woolen Needle.  I bought her this kit for making tons of pin cushions for me.  I have it too...untouched, in the closet.  Should have taken mine to her to see if it would come back finished!
 So pretty!
 Look at this quilt!  It was HUGE!!

 And here is the winner of the Viewer's Choice award!  This was also made by my aunt, designed by Pam Curo and quilted by Merry Backes of Merry's Stitchins.  Aunt Nancy, my friend Nancy, and I all did this as a BOM.  I just finished the binding on mine and it's hanging in my sewing room.  Aunt Nancy was so surprised when she won, but I wasn't!  It hung right across from my booth and I saw a lot of people writing the number down on their little voting sheet!

Mom and I had a fun trip to Minnesota and I had a great time at the show.  Hope these pictures inspired you!

Have a great week!

  1. I really love the rich rainbow of color in the one the dog chewed on. That dog has good taste, and the quilt must taste good! *LOL*
    The runner up to viewer's choice is a pattern I just saw somewhere on the internet this morning. I had never seen it before and now I see it twice within a morning.
    Congrats to your Aunt Nancy! Love what I can see of all of the little details on that quilt. Beautiful job!
