2013 Sisters, OR "INDOOR" Quilt Show - Day 2

Welcome Back!  This is not truly the second day I was at Sisters, OR, but the first post was getting just too long and I needed to do a few things and it was time for a break.  

So, now we are going to start with what I think were my favorite quilts of the entire show.  These quilts were all "white on white", all pieced by one lady, all made from linens from family members - including vintage linens, wedding dresses, hankies, tuxedo shirts, dress shirts, blouses, table cloths and napkins, everything remotely white that she could find and fit in.  Not all the fabrics are totally white as you will see.  Some have a yellowish cast and some have a pinkish cast.  All of these quilts were made for family wedding gifts.  There were at least eight of these quilts!

They are truly amazing!  (I apologize in advance for some of the pictures.  They were hanging from a balcony railing in a clock shop and it was hard to get a good angle for some of the photos.  I did the best I could.    First, here is the "special" sign they Quilt Show posted about these extraordinary quilts:

 

 Take a look:

Here is a photo of one of the quilt-tags:

And some detail shots of the fmq:

The tags alone (on these quilts) were fascinating as they gave such vivid descriptions of how the fabrics were gathered, the inspiration, and how the piecing and fmq designs were chosen.

As I said, there were a LOT of these quilts!  The highest #  tag I have a picture of says 7th and final in the series for the grands.  But, I would almost swear there were more than seven quilts hanging in this display!  They were all so beautiful.

 

And so, on to some color... Isn't this a sweet little quilt!
