Same pattern - different color schemes:
This was a really cool stack & whack pattern - interpreted in three slightly different ways. I like them all.
I first saw this spiral pattern in the teacher's tent at last year's show. I wonder if that teacher has a book out or just sold the patterns, because it was quite popular this year!
These quilts don't share a pattern so much as a cherry-red theme. I do love red & white quilts!
And here was a very old favorite - Sun Bonnet Sue! This version was made in 1942 by the owner's grandmother. It was showing a bit of wear - this was obviously a very well loved quilt!
It will be interesting to see which of the new popular patterns become classics and stand the test of time. If I'm lucky enough to be going to the Sister's quilt show in another 50 years... I wonder which of the fresh-new modern patterns will be there as antiques??
