Colorful Presentation....part 2

Here are a few more pictures from our guild meeting with Jean Wells as our guest speaker.  This is the cover quilt of her new book, well worth the money. Here is Jean peeking over the top of her quilt.  She was such a great presenter.  Make an effort to see her if she is teaching or lecturing in your area. You won't be disappointed.

This basket piece has such a warm feeling to it.  Click the photo to see the details in this piece.

Here was one of my favorites, if I could have taken any one piece home with me, this would have been it.  Again, it's the little things that Jean puts in her work that makes it sing.  What a fantastic basket!

This next one is her free form log cabins. Again, the color choices that she makes are spectacular. This is so not my style of quilting, yet I just love it.  It's fresh, creative and it just makes me want to learn more about the fantastic art of quilt making.  Every time I see things that stretch outside my boundaries, I realize I will never run out of things to try with quilt making.

Jean had a few pieces in her slide show that were 4 patch and 9 patch.  That gave another dimension to the finished pieces and just added one more element of surprise and design.
Final shot of the cover quilt.  This one is spectacular.
Are you craving color?  I want to add a palette of solids to my stash!
Sew a little today.
