Yesterday afternoon I dropped my daughter off at a hotel in Northwest DC where she will receive an orientation today and be off to Japan at 6AM on Saturday. Sigh…why do they have to leave!?! I want her to be independent and I want her to leave. I’m tired of her stuff lying around and lights on in the middle of the night. But I can’t help worrying about her. This is where quilt therapy comes to the rescue.
I’m working on a couple of projects – the hexies and Triangle quilt with the calicos. The hexies would be boring to show again and I’m not ready to share the Triangle blocks so here are some more show quilts. Yes, I will milk this for as long as I can! ; o )
Tana’s quilt has an antique feel. Love the bold stars and fabrics.
This one has a lot of movement-
Don’t see too many pineapples-
Lina has appliquéd these beautiful flowers to linen and hand quilted it with YLI jean thread. A lot of show attendees lingered over this quilt. The pattern, designed by Kim McLean, can be ordered at Glorious Color. She contributed to the Glorious Applique blog while making this quilt. Lina also posted through flickr.
Ann is a pattern designer and Bloomers is one of her designs – so sweet. Love the scalloped border. I just noticed last night that Ann designed the cover quilt for the most recent (July/August 2011) issue of McCall’s Quilting. Another charming design – Congratulations, Ann! Her website is Gingham Girls.
Jo designed this quilt on Electric Quilt for a contest by QuiltMaker magazine. It won!
