It was time to visit another quilt show today. Doing that is always a good way to find inspiration. I love to see the colors and the special quilting on each one. I loved reading the stories behind each of the quilts. It is hard to pick which ones to show you here on the blog.
|I love the look of this all green quilt.|
|This quilt was hand-pieced in the 1940's and then finished by the maker's granddaughter in the 1980's. The red is part of another quilt.|
|This quilt was called My Sylvia's Bridal. The quilter used 50 of the 140 quilts in Jennifer Chiaverini's book, The Master Quilter. The tiny blocks were each so pretty.|
|Such a pretty blue and white quilt.|
|I believe this quilt was made in honor of Arizona. You could see strata in the lines of the quilt.|
|Absolutely loved the hankies used in this small quilt. Always makes me sorry that I got rid of so many of them.|
|One of my favorites. Love the sunflowers.|
|Bluework and I believe bluebonnets in the border.|
|I have the same blocks used in this one. Love the way it was finished and wish I had the small panels used in alternate blocks. See the one below. A new thing to hunt for.|
|and redwork, say no more...|
|Check the quilting on this one. Simply stunning.|
|This one was made after a trip to Alaska. Each block is foliage from Alaska.|
And I had to share what I chose with my CSN gift certificate. I love anything by Susan Branch and do agree with the saying on this!
And now it is time to be inspired and get to some sewing. The baby quilt awaits!
