Quilt Inspiration




This quilt won a lot of awards at the County Fair. It was simply stunning and caught everyone's eye as they entered the exhibit hall. I'd never attempt to make anything like it, but it was gorgeous!


Even though this quilt was only awarded a white ribbon, I loved it for its design, its scrappiness, and its color.

I tend to like clean quilt designs. This pattern would make a nice, scrappy Quilt of Valor.

Another simple design that reminds me of Argyle socks.

  3. That 3rd quilt is a Jewel Box. Very easy to make. The 1st quilt is a stunner! My local county fair winners tended toward applique quilts this year.

  4. Wow. That first quilt is a show-stopper, but I'm not a fan of black backgrounds... maybe because I know it would NEVER work in my home (with the two lot of white hair dogs).

    I love a quilt show. I wonder when the next one is around here?
