More Quilts in the Barn 2013

I have a few more photos to share from Quilts in the Barn 2013.

(For my previous post with lots more quilt photos go here)

A stunning chintz quilt.

A little closer...

 This year once again Mary and Joe Koval brought some antique quilts, blocks and fabric, but this year the emphasis was on chintz.

 Their area of the barn was very popular!

I love this quilt!

More chintz..

 There was a selection of chintz fabric available for purchase.

Here is the fabric I came home with, along with the stunning book Chintz Quilts From The Poos Collection, by Kay and Lori lee Triplett and Xenia Cord.

Yardage of white and red fabric, border prints both red and white and a park of various coloured chintzes. Both the border fabrics and the smaller pack are glazed chintz fabric.
I would love to make a quilt like the one with the flying geese around the centre block in the red quilt photograph above.

Thank you Linda, and all your helpers, for another great three days of quilts and friends!

Looking forward to next year's Quilts in the Barn already!!


  1. I must say I have enjoyed the quilt show so much - thanks to you and all the other Australians that have been posting about it I almost feel like I have been there right along with you all :) I never see chintz here.

  2. Thanks for sharing. I am using this chintz in my LE quilt - love it!

  3. I really like that chintz diamond quilt...very pretty.

  4. I'm always so jealous when i see this show. Someday I will be there in person! And I'm going to buy fabric too!

  5. Gorgeous quilts. The chintz is so vibrant and luxurious. You scored some great goodies and I know you'll transform them into great beauties.
