Quilt Colorado Part II

I promised a few more photos from the Quilt Colorado Show.  Enjoy them.

This is called "Diamond in the Rough" and I love the colors and contrast. The gradations just suck you in.  Janice Johner received a Meritorious award.

Lots of beautiful appliqué on this large quilt won Mary Ross 2nd place in the Large Appliqué category.    Detail of the center is below.

See those hummingbirds? - my favorite flying flower.

Here is another quilt that caught my eye because of the bright colors.
Flutter Garden by Jo Ann Kilgroe, quilted by Jessica Jones Gamez - Meritorious
An amazing quilt was made in honor of this man's retirement from active military service.  It was a wonderful recognition of his service and had so much to look at and admire.

David Taylor won the 1st for Small Appliqué with Did you Wash your Beak?  Another remarkable quilt by this talented artist.

Finally, yours truly with "Butterflies in My Garden" which won 3rd in the Small Appliqué category.
