Not only was the shopping great at the Minnesota Quilt show, the quilts were amazing and so inspiring!
Since it's Slow Sunday Stitching, I thought I would share a few that featured hand work.
|This Bird of Paradise AKA Civil War Bride quilt made me want to make another one!|
There are so many humorous details...notice the grave marker where the groom should be...guarded by a squirrel!
|This was my favorite block--the broderie perse was amazing!|
|This block was pretty funny--the dog reminds me of Santa's Little Helper from the Simpson's.|
|This quilt of every kind of fuchsia imaginable was like a painting--gorgeous!|
|This was a great wool version of Primitive Garden--makes me wish the one I'm (not) working on is not the cotton version.|
|This eye catching quilt is all wool.|
|Detail of border|
|Detail of block|
|I loved this applique quilt--similar to the Bird of Paradise|
|And this one--same as above but a bit brighter.|
That's enough eye candy for one post--more later!
|I've been in the mood to get back to some English Paper Piecing--perfect to work on during Game of Thrones.|
I was going to make a few more Little Gems, but then I got sucked into another sew along with Temecula Quilt Company on Instagram.
|At least I don;t have to cut any fabric--my 1.5" squares are the perfect size for the half inch papers--and the Costco calzone packages are perfect to store them!.|
