Jane, Lucy and Millie
I love seeing quilts that I've made or that I'm working on in quilt shows. Here are some that I found in Paducah.
Dear Jane by Patricia Niemiec, Indiana
I finished my Dear Jane about a year ago - one of my biggest accomplishments! Patricia's looks more modern than mine, mine is pretty traditional (but I love it!). I love the quilting on hers!
Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Crosses! I am working on this one but am stalled out at the moment. I started hand piecing it and have 31 blocks complete. Looks like I have about 25 more to make! I wish I had started English Paper Piecing it and am now wondering if I can EPP the rest and put it together somehow with the hand pieced blocks. I'll have to give this some thought ....
This beautiful quilt was made by Laura Wierda from Michigan
Ah!! The Millefiori Quilt Along!! This is what I am currently working on using EPP and The New Hexagon book. These colors are so rich! I think mine will be a little lighter color palette. I am having SO much fun working on this!
This beautiful "My Thoroughly Modern Millie" was made by Karen Mainar and Jessica Gamez from Missouri.
Here are a couple of other spectacular hexagon quilts in the show!
Earth and Sky by Sue McDanie (I am not sure of the spelling of the last name....)
That is a LOT of hexagons, and so beautifully arranged and put together!
I LOVE this Limeberry Tart by Lyn Crump from Australia. Again, a billion hexagons and so artfully assembled. I love the colors - it makes me happy to look at it :)
The vendor at this booth told me she "cheated" when putting together her Patchwork of the Crosses. She EPP the blocks then appliquéd them to a cream background fabric. As you can see from the photo above, it changes the look of the quilt quite a bit, but it's still very beautiful!
If you're following the Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Hop, today we're supposed to head over to Carolina Moore's blog:
I looked earlier and didn't see anything yet about spring cleaning, but I'll check again later. I'm getting motivated to spring clean my studio and collect a box of goodies for our Silent Auction for CWQG! Have a great day!
