When the quilt shows start to abound. There were two in our area this past weekend, and my Sis-in-law joined me. Here’s a sampling of what we saw:
This little biker was embarrassed to be seen at a quilt show, even with a Harley quilt:
There were lots of Jelly Roll 1600 (Race) quilts this year. I overheard somebody recently say that they knew of a quilter who built one of these tops in 45 minutes. Have you done one? What is your fastest time? I’ve done a couple – took me about 1.5 hours if I remember correctly.
At the local yarn and needlework shop display, they had their own version of a patchwork quilt. I wanted the pattern, but it only came with a kit, so I took a closer look. It’s literally knitted squares, sewn together, placed on point. I think I can even do that!!!! Just might need a lesson from my knitter sister how to make the set-in triangles on the edges.
The colors are much more rich in real than they show in this picture, and make me want a quilt in that color.
Happy inspiration! Blessings, Peg
