Last Call

i wanted to share this last set of quilt photos before I forgot.

Several quilts were displayed using this pattern because the guild ladies made them in a class. I was drawn to this Green Sampler because I like more traditional quilts, but the quilt was also made in "brights" in purples, in navy, and in batiks.


The center of the quilt was appliqued. The stitches on this one were too even to have been hand-appliqued, so I think it was done on a machine.











I named this quilt, Framed Squares, and it looks like a really great stash buster.
















I first thought that the frames were made of simple fabric strips, but the frames were made from strips made from large and small scraps. This one is so simple that it could be made in a single weekend. The label said this quilt was made for a wedding gift.


This quilt would certainly be at home in a cabin. I can almost feel hear logs popping in the fireplace.

The Dubois Quilt Show/Festival is over for another year. As usual, the quilts were beautiful and gave me some ideas for using my scraps.
