New York State Fair - 2

It has been a while again, but here are some more pictures from the New York State Fair:

They also had some needlepoint mixed in with the quilts:

I really liked this panel with the country scape.  It just "spoke" to me for some reason.

The peacock quilt below was truly spectacular.  I think it may have been hand-quilted, but I can't recall right now.  The radiating lines stopped at each of the appliques and then started up again on the opposite side of the applique.

The color and movement in this next quilt really captured my eye.  I keep thinking about how the person made the quilt as I haven't seen a pattern for this one.  If anyone does recognize it, let me know.  :c)

There were also some knit items around including these adorable little animals.  They have a circle open in the middle of them such that you could stack them together on the "tree" in the left of the picture.

There were also these awesome wooden trucks and digging equipment.  These were really cute.  (Sorry for the thumb obscuring part of the picture).

A few more wood-working items.  The oars were really very pretty and something I would think about having as decoration in the house.

This ship was really extremely detailed.  There were all sorts of "lines" going around the ship that were very realistic and traditional to this era of ship.

I have one more post of the fair planned.  Mainly for non-quilting or crafting items, but still some cool pictures.  :c)

Hope everyone is enjoying the fall and being able to get some quilting done!
Happy Crafting!

  1. Thank you so much for taking the time to share all of these NYS Fair photos! I didn't make it this year, and have never seen the quilting display. The sand sculpture is amazing - you are right, it really is a sculpture!
