Beth Polidan's Truck Show - Part 2

Here are the rest of the hand quilted quilts and some quilt tops that Beth Polidan showed our guild at her Trunk Show: 

This is a quilt that Beth quilted with lovely straight and diagonal lines:

Another quilt with a close-up picture of Beth's hand quilting on it:

Such tiny, even stitches!

This quilt was quilted with the Baptist Fan quilting pattern:

This is a quilt top that Beth owns and she bought it because it was so unusual. 
It is made of quarter circles hand sewed onto background squares.  But the quilt top was made with the same fabrics facing each other in four squares, which resulted in a big circle - but more work than just appliqueing a circle on a big square, because it was made of four pieces of fabric.  I wonder what the quilt maker was thinking?

Here's a picture of the whole quilt top:  It looks quite modern, doesn't it?

Next, dear to my heart, is a redwork top:

I liked this moose:

This is a lovely Irish Chain Quilt Top

And another quilt top Beth owns:

This top has lovely sashing:

A big thank you to Beth Polidan for sharing her quilts with us!!

I will close with pictures of the flowers at Guild that day.  Summer has been so beautiful here in Michigan:

I am linking up with Design Wall Mondays at Patchwork Times to see what other quilters are working on today.  (Here)
