Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival Pictures

Yesterday I visited the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, and saw some beautiful quilts.   Sue Garman has designed a beautiful quilt, named "Stars For a New Day".  There were two quilts in the show made from her pattern.

First, here's Sue Garman's version:

Isn't it beautiful?

The first one in the show was made by Linda James, and the following pictures are of her quilt, named "Ascent to the Stars":

The second one was made by Shawn Priggel, and he named his version "Stars For a New Day - My Way":

Both quilts have beautiful workmanship and beautiful machine quilting.  I thought it was interesting to see the same pattern done in different color schemes - and I enjoyed seeing both quilts.  Hope you enjoy seeing them too!


  1. Those are really beautiful! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. I did enjoy seeing these two same/but different quilts. I really appreciate the up close shots of the quilting, too.

  3. Thanks for sharing these pics. It really is fun to see the same pattern with different fabrics!

  4. I may never quilt again. I am not worthy... These are stunningly beautiful both in concept and execution. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Thanks for the looksee on these three fantastic quilts--I cannot even imagine being that fine an artist. Julierose

  6. Hi Judy--so like Linda James' quilt, "Ascent to the Stars"--The fabrics make this quilt even more wonderful--does anyone know the fabric collection, design or name --would love to know. Jackie
