my own quilt show
This weekend, I missed the local quilt show!
So to make it up, I decided to run my own!
Well through my blog at least!
I have entered a few in the past and not much came of it...
just the pleasure of showing my work.
So for the next few days, I will be posting quilts I have made
over the years.
Today, I will start with some of my favorites.
I am a believer of quilt as art, so a lot of them are on the wall!
and yes we ran out of beds!!
let's start the show:
The pattern is from McKenna Ryan of Pine Needles.
It is fusible appliqued, machine stitched.
The laundry is really hanging on the rope with clothespins!
I called it "gone with the wind"
The pattern is from a quilting magazine (cannot remember which one).
To make it more interesting I challenge myself to only use batik fabric for the leaves that I had ...
when I said I had a large collection!
This Noah's ark was done using Margaret Rolfe's CD-ROM and book "a quilter's ark".
Each animal is paper pieced, has hand embroidered faces and tails (some can move like the zebra or the giraffe).
Tomorrow, I will post the pictures of the quits that started it all
(and it is not pretty!)
