Victoria Miller Quilts

If you read my earlier post this week, you will know that last weekend was our Northfield Quilt Show. Today I want to share with you some of the quilts of our featured quilter, Victoria Miller.

Vici is one of the kindest women I know, always ready with a smile and encouraging words. She doesn’t talk much about her accomplishments, which are many. When you see the quilts below, take note of the descriptions and the awards.

I only took a few photos. She had many quilts there, both hanging and on display on tables. Many of them have been in magazines and calendars.

Each of her quilts are done by hand appliqué and are also hand quilted. They are absolutely stunning.

Vici willingly allowed me to take a picture of her with this beautiful quilt.

Look at the beautiful appliqué and the gorgeous hand stitching.

There were so many more of Vici’s quilts to see, but I’m going to leave you with this beautiful one.

I wish I would’ve asked Vici how long this took to make. Look at all that handwork!

Another view of the Vici’s amazing talent.

I hope this little tour has inspired you. I wish I could have shown them all! I’m grateful that I’ve gotten to know Vici and be able to see her work firsthand.

What’s up next for me? Well, I’m playing in my quilt cave this weekend, but I will be out and about at another quilt show too.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Northfield Quilt Show Highlights

This past weekend was the 2017 Northfield Quilt Show “Spring Radiance” hosted by our quilt group. I thought I would give you a little peek at some of the quilts in the show. These are just a few that I thought you’d enjoy seeing. I have a difficult time picking favorites. I liked them all.

I’ll show you the quilt first; the label follows last. These ladies are talented! So without much more description from me, I’ll let the quilts do the talking. Enjoy!

Fractal by Jessie Pendergast

I like the color and design of this quilt.

Hosanna by Rosie Werner

This block has long been a favorite of mine, one I would like to make someday. I like the use of different colors for the blocks. Rosie’s quilt is a beauty!

I have to show you just one more, a quilt that just amazes me whenever I see it. The quilt is so large I couldn’t get it all in the photo (it was a challenge to hang as well).

Family Legacy by Elaine Strese and Cookie Williams

Look at the beautiful spring colors in this quilt!

Take a peek at the size of those squares . . .

The quilting is all done by hand. I believe Cookie said it took her over a year.

These are only a few of the over 100 quilts at the 2017 Northfield Quilt Show. I wish I could show them all. We have a talented bunch of quilters.

In Friday’s post, I’ll show you a few of the Northfield Quilt Show Featured Quilter, Victoria Miller. You need to see her beautiful work. I can’t wait to show you!

Hope this inspires you to do some amazing quilting of your own today! See you Friday!
