I have a couple quilts to share from my stops on my way to my quickie retreat last week!
Terrible – I almost forgot I took pictures of these!
But they look so springy --- Easter colors abounding!
And SO SIMPLE……these were quilts that were greatly loved and heavily used as I hope is the destiny for most of my scrap quilts. After all – really---what are quilts FOR?
This is a simple album block variation…with mint green sashings and red cornerstones. YUMMY!
The fabrics in it are fabulous ---wouldn’t this be a great one from the 2.5” bin?
One corner! Oh yes, this says spring – love that fan quilting!
I just find this striking in simplicity – and again, as we find with a lot of southern quilts --- no outer sashing or borders. It ends where it ends and the binding finishes it. I need to get BRAVE enough to do this..I always felt I *HAD* to sash the outsides too!
This is a very stringy scrappy log cabin variation that looks like boxes…..and they are all different sizes! To me, this is the quintessential “FARM” quilt – made out of bits of this and that, pieced in columns, filled with heavy cotton and tied.
This is a quilter I would have loved to watch work – to see how her mind decided which was going to go where, and how she chose which fabric for which block. Who slept under this quilt? Who did it keep warm through the winter?
Some day I hope that someone will look at my quilts and the *odd* fabric choices I made, and wonder the same things.
I’m off to Portland – the trunk show is packed in two new army green duffels –ready for their first cross-country flight!
