Here are some of my favorites.
Pauline's blue ribbon applique quilt. Believe it or not, all those squares are appliqued! I think they are 1" square. Wonderful.
Miriam captured the colors of the African sunrise in her quilt made with African fabrics. I love the way some of the circles form the edge of the quilt.
Clare used the colors--and the birds-- of the southwest in her quilt. And look at all those triangles!
Susan's quilt with blue and cheddar sparkles with the addition of a dash of pink. Stunning!
Elizabeth used Asian fabrics in her blue ribbon pieced quilt, added an applique border, and then hand quilted it, incorporating Sashiko (look at the lower right.) And look at those wonderful cranes at the top.
Only one fabric was used for all the blocks and the border in Diane's four patch posey quilt. I love the colors!
Susan's wonderful applique quilt has it all: great design and color, and exquisite hand applique and quilting. If I had been a judge, this quilt would be wearing a different color ribbon for sure!
Barb's Abe Lincoln quilt is such a wonderful example of a medallion quilt. I think the different sized star borders and the variety of fabrics make this a winner, and the judges thought so, too. I need to practice my photography skills because as you can see, I lopped off the outer border and that important Blue Ribbon!
There are lots more to show you, so I'll save some for another post! I hope these quilts inspired you to get busy and quilt!
