I haven't been doing any sewing to speak of since I finished all my quilts for the quilt show. But I thought you might enjoy seeing some quilts from our show.
Do not adjust your monitor! It really is a black & white quilt and this quilt was big! It was at least queen sized, if not king sized. It won People's Choice both days of the show. This was made after one of the guild members gave a class at one of our workshops on the Triangle Frenzy Swirl tablerunner. I understand the quilter found this fabric at Fabric Depot in Portland. It really was incredible and the quilting was super, but I'm afraid it doesn't show up well in the photos I took.
This is a silk quilt, wall hanging size, Machine embroidery (an Anita Goodneedle design). It was going to be bigger until the maker realized that it wouldn't really survive being on the bed with her 3 cats!
Umbrella girls made with selvages. I don't know if you can see it, but the quilter added a little duck with an umbrella on the bottom border. This quilt is very 'Seattle'!
|The Fisherman's Quilt|
Made for a nephew, this is an original pattern. It's very Gee's Bend-like to me. It has flannel, denim and wool on the front and leopard-print Minkee on the back.
I love the quilting in the border of this string quilt as well as the black and white dots!
Believe it or not, this is a charity quilt! It is lap quilt-sized. I love the pieced ducks! We have a lady in our guild that only wants to make quilts, She makes most of our guild's charity quilts, and has made over 100 quilts this year alone. We give to a number of local charity organizations, We think she is quite amazing and so talented.
Made by the same quilter as above, and this is also a charity quilt. It is probably a queen-size quilt. I believe this is a pattern from Judy Martin called "Shakespeare In The Park" from her book The Creative Pattern Book.
This beautiful quilt was in the booth of our scissor sharpening vendor (Ewok's Eversharp). His wife (and sadly, I didn't get her name) came up with this design she based on the Log Cabin With A Twist.
I survived jury duty last week. It was tough! I had to get up so very early, 4:30 am (I'm usually a late sleeper) to be able to leave the house early enough to miss the worst of the traffic, and then drive for an hour in bad-to-terrible traffic. And parking was a pain in the patooti - 100 free spaces for 300 jurors. Not my idea of a fun time. Yes, I'm whining. But the process itself was really interesting and not uncomfortable at all. Just lots of waiting. Now I've been excused for this week because I'm not feeling too well. Exposed to too many different germs last week maybe? I just hope I don't feel too bad for too long. I've got sewing to do!
