Quilty Happenings

A couple of weeks ago now, some friends and I went to a little outdoor quilt show that is put on by Lorraine Stagness every two years.  Here are their pictures.

Here are some of the pictures I took.

I love blue and yellow.  I also love quilts with movement.


This one is just stunning.  Plus I really like the look of flying geese going around in a circle.

Every time I see chickens I can't help but think of chookyblue and take a picture.  See the mice in the barn?

Isn't the applique stunning?  I have a quilts like this in my future.  (At some point after Nearly Insane and Dear Jane are done. :)

This is another one with great movement.  Plus, I now notice pinwheels everywhere.  (We have a quilter in our guild that is pinwheel crazy)

This one is just so bright and I love all the spiky bits.

This one, I just couldn't resist the colours.  I love all of these more folk arty colours together.

I love how they used the piping and created the wavy design.

I'm just a sucker for optical illusions in quilting.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures of the show.  Can you believe that all these quilts are made by one lady and her two sisters?  And that they put on a show (about 200 quilts) every two years?

I love the applique in the center of the 4th quilt pictured. It is really neat. I also always like the circles of flying geese. Thanks for sharing. We all get ideas I'm sure from others quilts.

I love love love the folky art colours one :) As I get older I am finding my colour palette is moving towards the more autumny colours.

Hope things are good with you - freezing down here as mid winter and sick to death of it :(
