Pam Beal in Hand Quilted Quilts
Allow me to share quilts made by other semi-finalists---quilts from some of my favorite people. The ambitious Karen Duling had 3 quilts on exhibit! I love Karen's finely crafted quilts containing subtle messages and thoughtful content.
I could say the same thing for Kristin Shields' quilts. She is another gifted quilter. I met both of these women at the Beaver Island Quilt Retreats with Gwen Marston, and that is all I'll say...don't want to share our secrets!
Tim Latimer is a popular quilter from Michigan. Tim's quilt was machine quilted using an antique treadle sewing machine. Imagine his hand/foot coordination as you gaze at his impressive whole cloth quilt! Absolutely one of a kind.
Finally, a couple more quilts by people I do not know--- I was really taken with these quilts!

|notice the wonderful random stitching & texture|
|GRID SYSTEM 56" X 65"|
Mary Kay Price
I think the grid is trying to contain the little marks, but they want to move
|WINTER FIELDS 62" X 64"|
