Love to Quilt

Don’t you just love beautiful fabric!  I can get so motivated after “petting” some of my stash.  For you non-quilters–stash is our collection of fabric.  Most of us have a lot more stash then we will ever be able to make into quilts.  But that’s OK.  Just looking and touching is a thrill.  One of the reasons I love to quilt!Image

More Quilt Show Quilts

I thought I would share a few more pics of my quilts that were in the show last week.  First is one I call  French Baskets.  The blocks were made by friends in my guild for my birthday.  When I was deciding how to make them into a quilt top, I found this great fabric (sashings and border) in my stash.  I was so proud of myself for using fabric I already had!  I designed the swag appliqué on the sides because I didn’t have enough of the striped border fabric to go all the way around.  I really like how it turned out.  The primary color scheme is reminiscent of French Provance.  For the back, I incorporated a vintage tablecloth I got off of eBay that had the same colors.  Then I did some fun free motion quilting.ImageImageImageImage

Also in the show was a quilt that I designed and made for my son Scott’s wedding to Robyn (I’m ashamed to say how long ago that was–but it took we a while to finish). Now that it has been in the show, I can no longer come up with any more excuses not to hand it over to them!  The color scheme is a traditional blue and white, but I was sure to leave a lot of negative space for quilting.
