Here are some of the pieced quilts that I enjoyed. Although is was a small venue and I could get up close, my camera just didn't capture the colors very well. Double pink with a cream solid.
I tried to get some close ups for block construction and quilt motifs.
9 in a 9 patch. Love that bright blue background.
This medallion was a delight to see. There was an eclectic mix of fabrics in the center, and the piecer made two types of blocks for the center block corners.
This two color quilt was hanging and it was spectacular. There is just something about 2 color quilts that draws me to them
If we look back, we can see many of the influences that are in the quilts being made today. I had the opportunity to meet with several quilters who are very well versed in antique quilts, and I'm looking forward to spending some time with them in the future. They have so much knowledge and when I see quilts like the ones I saw today, I'm motivated to get into my sewing studio.
Next post will be appliqued quilts from the Bed Turning.
