Enjoy Part 2 of this quilt show.
Sorry, I didn't turn this picture.
I liked the layout of this one, the sashing and border really pops the blocks.
Pat Sloan pattern? I think so. Bright and cheerful!
The color choices on this were lovely.
This pink/green/white appealed to me. I love the balance of color and the design really shines with the bit of dark used for star points and little hourglass blocks.
Oh how this one caught my eye, and the eye of many other viewers around me. The compliments were flying both times I went to look at this piece. So much color and great placement of flowers and leaves. Plus the background choices really helped the applique pop.
I was so surprised to read the card beside this quilt and not recognize the quilter's name. I was so sure I knew who created this piece, both the fabric choices and quilting felt familiar to me. Then I ran into Nifty Quilts and she asked if I saw her plaid strip quilt. Duh....I read the wrong card. Of course this is her work. Fabulous baptist fan quilting with black perl cotton. I purchased this fan template after seeing Nifty show some work on her blog. I am mentally designing a quilt top that I can use this stencil with. You can purchase it here. I'm not affiliated, I just know it's a great online shop and the service and product is terrific.
Stellar secondary designs were added with the machine quilting. And those circles are actual faced holes with a background layered behind them. I've seen this technique years ago without a background, and it still mystifies me as to the technical steps to achieve this look. Fabulous piece.
Tonya A. drove in to get us there. She's also a great quilter, check out her latest pattern in Quiltmania.
