Quilt shows are a wonderful source of inspiration. Between the gorgeous quilts on display and the vendors selling everything a quilter needs, you come away from a quilt show excited and ready to start a new project.
Today I attended a local quilt show put on by a small guild. The quilts were wonderful-made by very talented ladies. I am in totally in love with applique right now and so I was drawn to the many applique quilts there. I snapped pictures of a few of them to share here.
I love the bright colors of this quilt.
This black background is stunning.
This is the exact same quilt pattern as the
picture above. I love the completely different
look because of color choice and border design.
This simple checkerboard border
ties the whole quilt together.
A great combination of pieced and appliqued.
This quilt, done predominately in black,
and the next two, done in other colorways,
again show how different a quilt can look
depending on fabric choice.
This one has different flowers in the
baskets and no applique in the border.
Though also done in darker tones,
this quilt has a soft look.
The show was small, with only a handful of vendors but the great quilts made the trip worthwhile. I am ready to get back to my own applique project now.
