I am combining quilt show pics with a recent finish. Scroll to the end for my finish.
I enjoyed a beautiful fall drive to Sutter, CA to see the Sutter Buttes Quilt Guild Show. They are a newer guild, about 15 years old I think and this was their 8th show. It was a small but mighty show. There was lots of great quilting and it was a very happy and colorful show:
Gotta love a happy Christmas quilt! There were lots of fun details.
Diana took Pam Holland’s class at Empty Spools and created this. I like how she fussy cut the base and that bird is so stinkin’ cute!
This was 3-d, not just the pearls but the flowers were just attached at the top; it had a lovely dimension to it. Laura Heine pattern.
Great use of ombre fabrics and fabulous quilting!
You may not see it in the photo but the lines on the Flamingo are ribbons; it made me think of a corset with boning which really made me smile – a Flamingo in a corset?
There was a nice display of Halloween quilts. This is such a happy Halloween quilt and I love that quilting.
What a happy quilt! Love the bees too. There were several flower quilts but my photos of them were awful.
Wow, what impact! The ombres add so much to this and the quilting is just lovely.
My photo makes it look wonky but it wasn’t. I like the original design and the white around the central motif.
What’s not to love? The blues, the angles, the softness.
This was applique – look at those points! This was a striking quilt. There was backlighting behind it; the colors were more vibrant than the photo shows.
Unique design and lovely fabric choices; hand applique! A Laura Heine pattern.
I loved the vibrant colors and the precision of the piecing paired with the applique.
Sorry about the color; the actual quilt was white with colorful pencils.
And, I had a finish! This is my very first wool applique attempt and I am smitten. This was a kit I bought from Midway Wool at the Roseville (California) Quilt and Craft Fair.
Okay, I don’t like how the corners flare. I know how to avoid that, but I didn’t really want to go to all that trouble when I would be inserting the piping; I am accepting that flare.
Note the triple stitch-in-the-ditch in green (big, fat 12 wt thread) as well as in red in the border. It added a nice touch.
That piping is precise and divine! Of course I used Susan Cleveland’s Piping tool; it makes piping easy and perfect.
Of course it has an invisible zipper. It’s been a while since I did an invisible zipper. I used my BERNINA foot #35 and it installed in minutes. LOVE that foot, one of my favs.
I am almost done with my vintage tulip quilt but not quite. I will probably reveal her next week.
