My Mancuso Favorites!
I went to the Mancuso World Quilt Show in Manchester, NH last week. I thought I'd share with you some of my favorites from the show. This quilt is called Fabulous Feathers. It's made by Carol Newsham, New Zealand. It measures 94" X 94". The colors just jumped out at me when I saw this one.
This is the front and back of Mont St Michel Memories. Made by Linda S. Schmidt of Dublin, CA. It measures 56" X 79". The back was so gorgeous. You could see all that texture. So impressive!
This is The Three Watchers by Kathryn Harmer Fox of South Africa. It measures 72" X 56". These wild dogs were made using a technique developed by the quilter. This quilt looked like a painting. I loved all the shading that made the dogs looks so real. So much thread!!
On This Winter Day was made by Nancy J. Prince and Linda French of Orlando, FL. It measures 63" X 84". This looked like a vintage Currier & Ives Christmas card. About 75,000 yards of thread and 7 million stitches created the thread painted designs using 2000 hours of work over 7 years. WOW!!!
This is Golden Peacock by Barbara Mellor of Australia. It measures 37" square. I just love this design. This is an original pattern.
I have more pictures but these are my favorites. Hope you enjoy them!
