Quilt Guild Inspiration

Last night was my quilt guild meeting and Quilters Gallery from NC was our speaker and trunk show. Wonderful quilts that are alot of inspiration.
This quilt used a motified drunkards path for the piecing. Wonderful effects.

Anyone up for some applique...

Kaleidoscope pattern. Always interesting to see the curved effect you can get from the straight seam piecing.

Border prints used to get a great pieced look border.

The border on this shows how she pieces the border as she pieces the rows so that it is done when the rowsnare sewed together, great idea. Let's you use more of your scraps for borders.

This border below used Marti Michell's star border piecing.

Dash to the finish pieced with churn dash blocks. Extends the sashing into the borders, more scraps used.

Anyone for some half square triangles???

Batiks and black, beautiful.

BQ blocks. Use your conversational prints or those you don't want to cut into small pieces. Quick to piece.

More kaleidoscope quilts.

Curved piecing....not for me.

Now I have seen this Cotton Boll quilt several times and I love it.

Boxes anyone?

More applique, halloween with two fabrics.

Drunkards path. The used orphan nine patch blocks to cut the curved pieces. What an interesting effect.

Many pillowcases to get made, guess I will be sewing in Florida in a couple of weeks.
Another crazy day today, hopefully Wednesday will be better. Until next time.......
Happy Quilting,
