Last month Mary Lou Weidman came to our guild and I took an all day workshop. It was so inspiring. I love her whimsical style. She does the work that I dream of doing. We learned how to make “wonky” blocks. It was SO fun and freeing. Here’s what I got done in the workshop. Someday (soon I hope!) these blocks will go into a quilt.
If you want to try this kind of piecing, her process is well explained in her latest book:
I was so enamored of Mary Lou’s style, I went to Amazon and found a couple more of her older books (used) that are now out of print.
I’m telling you all this because there was a special showing of Mary Lou inspired quilts at the International Quilt Show last week in Chicago. The quilts were different takes on her cow pattern ( from “Out of the Box”)
I took some pictures of the ones I liked the best. Sorry I didn’t get the names of the artists.
Love this Halloween one.
All so fun!
Be still my heart. So much to love!
Fun stuff, I agree. Thanks for your comments!
