Card Trick. Didn't have time to get the info for these either.
This next quilt I also saw at another quilt show. I don't know who made it or the name, but I know the hostess said it took the maker 5 years to make, and it was hand quilted, and that it was a wedding quilt for the maker's daughter. Also, it has a large Mickey Mouse embroidery on the back bottom corner.
Crazy Quilt by Phyllis Nichols
Some of you will know for sure, but I think this is a Dear Jane.
The next quilt was hand appliqued.
And this is the label for the above quilt.
The next 2 are memory quilts made for brothers from their father's shirts.
This is the label from one of the memory quilts.
This next picture is of Tinnie Pettway and her daughter Claudia Pettway Charley. Tinnie (pronounced Tiny) is one of the original members of the Gee's Bend Collective. She, her sister Minnie, and her daughter now have their own organization called That's "Sew" Gee's Bend, where they sell their quilts and the quilts of other quilters from Gee's Bend who are not still members of the Collective. The other pictures are of their quilts, most of which are available for purchase through their website www.geesbend.net.
I think this one is called Bullseye.
This next one was by far my favorite. If only money were no object for me, this quilt would be hanging in my house.
I did get a potholder from Tinnie's line of products called Tinnie Pieces with Minnie Designs, and her book Gee's Bend Experience which she signed to me. We had a great time this year at the Collinsville Quilt Walk and hope to go again next year.
These next 4 are by Izola Ragan. A Cathedral Window quilt.

Pictures taken in the Christmas room.
The Quilt Room by Vickie Tanguay.
These next several pictures were taken in the same historic home. I was unable to get the information for most of these due to the crowd of people waiting their turn. I was simply trying to get as many pictures of the quilts as I could as I was herded through.
I was able to read the tag on this one. It's Clematis Flower by Vickie Tanguay.
That's all for part 2. Part 3 to follow.
Here are the pictures I took Saturday at the 2010 Collinsville Quilt Walk in Collinsville, Alabama. This event is held every year to raise money for the restoration of the Collinsville Public Library. I have 101 pictures to show you, so this could take awhile.

This next one is a Christmas Tree quilt. I didn't get the name of the maker.

These quilts are displayed everywhere in the churches and historic homes of Collinsville, and I couldn't always get a picture of the whole quilt.
This next quilt is by Reba Vaughn

A quilt by Phyllis Morse.
And this is a Christmas Double Wedding Ring by Eileen Cundiff. The pieces were so small and the piecing so precise, I could have sworn it was a cheater quilt until I got a closer look.
That's all for part 1. Part 2 to follow shortly.
