Saturday I hosted a passel of my quilting friends for a get-together at my house. There was food, LOTS of laughter, and quilts!
This is Yvonne’s quilt. I LOVE this! I always struggle with what to do with large-scale prints, and this quilt was fabulous in person! I believe she said all the fabrics were from the same line. Kinda wishing I had some in my stash!
Nancy’s quilt, made from jelly rolls. It’s HUGE.
I LOVE the quilting on this quilt. All I could think about was which one of my quilts would look good with this quilting pattern!
Gail’s quilt. Curved piecing! Gail said there was a LOT of steam involved in this quilt. I love it! I’ve never seen anything like it!
Lynette’s quilt. It’s a pattern called “Florentine Fantasy” and it is GORGEOUS! All those blocks are made using one fabric, which is very carefully fussy-cut. It’s a little like a stack-n-whack, but easier. And Lynette had a fabulous idea – instead of using sashing, she simply put a second border around each block.
Here’s a close-up (she made a couple of pillow covers). Another thing that occured to me is I don’t think I would have thought to put that dark wine fabric together with the brighter red, but it works beautifully!
Carol’s quilt, made for a service member. I can’t remember if it was for QOV or a different organization. I wished I’d taken a close-up of it. I believe the print is Air Force fabric. Love that brown border! The color was pulled from the print, and reminds me of gingerbread. Yum!
Another quilt from Nancy. I can’t remember what the name of this pattern is, but it comes together FAST. On one of our quilt retreats a few years ago, we all spent maybe an hour sewing up some blocks and ended up with 5 quilts! Lynette quilted them and donated them to one of our local hospitals, which has a program that gives each terminally ill patient their own quilt.
Another Florentine Fantasy quilt. That pattern is so cool!
Here’s a close-up I took last month, before it was quilted. See the border fabric? That’s the only fabric used in the blocks. Pretty cool!
And last but not least, my Beaver Nation rag quilt, which was featured in an earlier post.
We laughed so much, it was a lot of fun!
