I went to Monroe, WA for the Quilter's Anonymous quilt show. It was a big show with lots of drop-dead gorgeous quilts. I didn't take any photos of those quilts . . . . I knew I couldn't do them justice with my less-than-professional photo taking skills. I still tend to cut off the tops or the sides of the quilts, and I can't always get a good angle with all the people in the way. So please excuse my poor photos, and I hope you'll still enjoy the quilts anyway!
Corduroy House Medallion by Dorothy LeBoeuf 41" x 40"
This quilt was made at the Beaver Island Quilt Retreat with Gwen Marston in Sept. 2009. Dorothy chose corduroy for this for texture because she couldn't use any print fabrics. It did have a wonderful texture. I hope you can tell from the photos.
Each block of this quilt is quilted in a different pattern. What fun!
For some reason, I didn't get all of this quilt in the photo, and now I'm kicking myself!
Look at these great fabrics. Dorothy said these were from a friend's 40-year stash!
This was made with thrift store Hawaiian shirts. I love the colors in this one, especially that little zing of orange!
This was an improvisational piece that was in the quilts for sale. I didn't see the maker's name, unfortunately. I like the buttons on this one.
