On with the show! This one is called True Lover’s Knot, made by Judy Simons, quilted by Barbara Schulenberg. I love it. Very happy and bright. Might have to crack open my scrap bin for it! This next one is appropriately named Granny Squares. I never really cared much for the crocheted version, but this one is really cool, I think. It glows. The top is made of all solid fabrics. No prints. The back is pretty, also. The gold thread really shows up against the black, and sets off the quilt pattern. Here is a classic – Pickle Dish. Sharon Bishop bought the top (unknown maker) in Paducah and added the sawtooth and outer borders. It was then hand-quilted by Sharon and the Wandering Foot Quilters. (I know the picture is sideways – sorry, it fits better that way on the blog.) I really like this black and white version of pickle dish. It’s striking and simple. Another black and white quilt, coincidentally named “Black and White”, made by James A. Niles. I love the pattern. Does anyone know the name of it? This one is called Thousand Flowers, a Kaffe Fassett design. Quilt made by Carol Hull and quilted by Robin Hill. Beautiful, rich colors. I’m such a sucker for color. Those who know me know I love miniature quilts. This is called Garden by Nedra Lihs. The blocks are paper pieced and 4″ square. Check out that feathered star! I wish the quilt organizers had not hung it up so high – the bottom edge of the quilt was at eye level, which made it really hard to study up close. Next, a classic Jewel Box, made by Allison Rider, quilted by Tonya del Tonga Armanasco. Have I mentioned that I love bright quilts? 🙂 Yet another black and white quilt. I did not get the name of the quilt or quiltmaker. 🙁 Cindi would like this, I think. I really love how it pops out at you, it’s almost 3D. That’s it for now. I actually have EVEN MORE to post tomorrow, and will be attending yet another quilt show this weekend! Hopefully pictures will be allowed. I’m off to charge my camera, empty the card, and pack my white gloves!
Peggi, I love every single one of these! There are of them I’m itchin’ to make right now LOL! Of course the B&W’s are always a fan favorite for me. The True Lover’s Knot is my second favorite. I need bright right now after such a dull, dark winter! How lucky you are to be within reach of so many quilt shows. There’s always a constant stream of inspiration 🙂
