Blog Catch-up Going Backwards in Time!

Still playing catch-up for that in-between period when I wasn’t posting.  During my busy time, I went to a quilt show up in New Port Richey (northwest of Tampa).  It was sponsored by the West Pasco Quilt Guild and they put on a really nice (and BIG) show.  There were some fascinating appliqué quilts that I would never attempt, but love to look at, only a few patriotic quilts (that I look at for inspiration for my Quilts of Valor group), and some great simple/easy/adaptable quilts that I can potentially make for kids.  Enjoy this sampling ...

Here’s a cute appliqué, called Monkey Business, by quilter Avis Merritt from a pattern in Quiltmaker Magazine:

And a wonderful Dresden Plate with lace and yo-yo centers (sorry, I didn’t get the label – I apologize for not giving credit):

A quilt I loved for the rich colors called The Gathering Pattern by Cindy Stroud from a book called The Essential Sampler Quilt Book:

Some Patriotic quilts:
I Pledge Allegiance by Melissa Lamb, pattern by Blackbird Designs

Tales of the First Ladies, Proud Eagle, by Joyce Novak, blocks named after President's Wives

Patriotic Rose by Frances Oswald, designs by Janet Miller

Portals by Mary Ann Norfleet, inspired by book Successful Scrap Quilts from Simple Rectangles

A very special Heirloom quilt by Genie Betts from a BOM by Carol Stark – the photos, even the detail ones, don’t do this quilt justice!



And some easier quilts that I think I might be able to do:
