Instead I had large florals and the Wm. Penn fabric I'm using in my Stars quilt.
A floral stripe by Andover Fabrics . . .
. . . and one by Faye Burgos for Marcus Brothers.
Nice primary colors.
Windham's Wm. Penn's Vision c. 1820 by Patty Harants.
Last Friday I met Rachel at the Brownstone Quilters Show in Allendale, NJ. It's one of our favorites with lots of beautiful quilts.
Best In Show was Kaleidoscope by Daryl Ferber quilted by Barbara Tibus. It also won 1st Place in the Bed Quilt Professionally Quilted category. The origin of the pattern was "Blessings" from Quiltmania.
Hexagon Star by Meryl Liss won Best Hand Workmanship in the Bed Quilt Pieced category.
Barb V.s Jubilee Quilt won 1st Place in the Bed Quilt Appliqued category. There was a 2nd ribbon, too--Quilt Show Chair! Just look at those perfectly round stuffed berries! Congrats, Barb!
And yet another prizewinner! Barb's Hot Flash took an Honorable Mention. Hop on over to her blog to see more.
Ohio - My Birth State was made by Diane Zettler. The pattern was from Fons & Porter magazine. There are 123 stars!
Over Time by Ellen Van Howling won 3rd place in the Bed Quilt Pieced category. It's an interesting mix of techniques, fabrics, and fancy machine quilting.
Look at all these Bowties--82 of them from Barb's Civil War Bowtie swap and no two are alike :)
And guess what was tucked in with the Bowties? This charming assortment of Conversation Prints from Nancy R. Thank you so much!
Remember when I purchased this Bowtie top at a church sale? I decided I'm going to use it to practice machine quilting. I added borders and fused all three layers together using Hobbs Fusible Batting. We'll see how it goes.
I spotted one of the pillowcase dresses I made for Dresses for Bolivia on Lori's Humble Quilts Blog here. The 11th pic down shows a little girl wearing it over a blue tee :) Thanks, Lori, for the opportunity!
Woo-Hoo! Phase I of the Woodlawn Cemetery Project (Bronx, NY) is complete and I was one of the top six volunteers with 48,762 data entries! Is that crazy?? This was over a period of 7 months--January to August. Stay tuned . . .
