Yum…coffee, toast, BACON AND QUILTS! More for your enjoyment!
When you wander down each aisle of a quilt show it brings to the top the amount of talent that goes into making each and every quilt. Matching points, picking colors, strong stitches, pattern flow….so many things to see. I had to walk the quilt exhibit a couple of times (would have walked more if time was there), in order to begin to see the beauty! Here’s some more from Tri-County.
The Tri-County guild, located in Cypress, Tx. had a fantastic show a few days ago. I hope some of you made it, but just in case, here are a few pictures of their quilts. They hung approximately 265 quilts and had walls and halls full of great vendors! Sorry I didn’t take pics of the signs telling whose quilt it was and its story…I’ll try to do better next time. Meanwhile the next few posts will be honoring their quilts and quilters. Enjoy!
This is a king size quilt completed in shades of brown to beige and tan. Esther G. pieced it and will be giving it to a friend, I believe. Such a lucky friend. We did a lovely embroidered label for the back.
I love the neutral tones in this quilt. Even though I love playing with all the brights I can get, this is the type of quilt I would definitely use!
This is a gift for a retiring lady. What a gift to receive! The fabric choices were great and centered on shades of coral and blue. The back matched the border fabric and was just so happy. I embroidered and attached a label in remembrance of the retirement. It included the ladies name, the date of retirement, the name of the pattern, the piecer and quilter’s names….great idea! Barbara did a wonderful job on the quilt and I heard that everyone is excited to give it to her.
Look closely at the blue backing to a Quilts of Valor quilt I finished recently. First time to use the quilting design…I really like it on the QOV. I believe that it was designed by Nancy Haacke from Canada.
Enjoy…happy quilting. Karen
What a wonderful quilt using K. Fassett fabrics. Even the back has some great color use. Used a very geometry quilting pattern on this quilt with thread color that accentuated the texture of the quilt rather than the pattern. I really love working on these hot colored prints! Congrats to Roberta on another fantastic creation!
Happy Quilting…stay tuned for more. Karen
Missed a few blogs these past couple of weeks. I was challenged on Facebook to post seven quilt pictures in seven days. Didn’t quite make it in seven days but thought I’d add them in slide show forms to catch you up if you aren’t on Facebook. Here ya go…
While I’m thinking about Facebook, does anyone else have the issue with U-Tube videos not “shutting up” if you close out of them without hitting the stop/pause on the video. Drives me nuts as it keeps yapping until I reopen and stop the video or it just runs out itself. Hate it. That just started an update or two ago. Yuck!!!!
Oh well, lots of bigger problems going on, but, just saying…
Happy Quilting, Karen
