The Oregon Coast Quilters Guild – 21st Annual Quilts by the Sea Quilt Show
For ease of viewing, quilts were divided in 15 categories based on size and construction techniques. Entrants selected the category that best represented their own items. Entry numbers were presented on different colored tags to help individuals move easily from section to section.
Best of Show (Medium Pieced 2nd Party) (418), “A Holiday Wedding” Constructed by Dolores Thomas. Quilted by Jennifer Reinhart. Pattern/Designer: Quilter Magazine. Comments: “I had never made a wedding ring quilt. When i got the holiday issue of the Quilter Magazine I was taken by this Christmas rendition. After putting it off for almost five years, I knew it was time to just do it. My daughter’s beautiful quilting has made this a true family treasure.”
First Place (Art Quilts – An original design, a creative interpretation, something different. Not made from a published pattern.) (809)
“Ocean Waves” Quilted by Karen Donobedian. Original design based on a photo by Dr. Robert Schroder, NOAA. “Since I love turtles I had several turtle pictures that I received permission to use in designing a quilt. Janet Fogg taught me how to design the turtle to be primarily pieced. I was obsessed with finishing the quilt., it took several months to piece and then several more to quilt.”
First Place (Large/medium hand quilted) (1029), “Dresden Plate” Hand quilted by Mary Lou Mate. Pattern/Designer Mary Lou Mate. “I started this quilt about 14 years ago and worked on it while I was traveling for work, including on ships. It has gone many miles and been in many countries. The nice thing about doing applique by hand and hand quilting is that it is portable!”
First Place (miniature) (708), “Mini Dutchman’s Puzzle” Quilted by Mechelle Johnson.
