Here are a few more colours and patterns from the recent Quilt Show that inspired me, and you too I hope.
This selection features more pastels and subdued colours, and includes the two quilts Melva (a member of my quilting class) drew to my attention.
‘Fabric Bouquet’ made and quilted by Trish Souness (and on the right, ‘Sisterhood’ also by Trish Souness)
‘Fabric Bouquet’ detail
‘Floral Fanfare’ made and quilted by Jenni Scott – this one’s for you, Melva.
A Japanese style quilt; machine pieced, hand appliquéd and hand quilted. I was unaware of the work that had gone into this until it was pointed out to me and I took a closer look. Impressive.
‘Floral Fanfare’ detail
‘For The Love Of Brown’ made by Denise Lee, quilted by Julie Cannon – this one’s for Melva too.
I liked the limited yet varied color range. The materials were textured which gave it more depth and interest.
‘For The Love Of Brown’ detail
‘Colours Of The Murray’ (detail) – made by Helen McKeown, quilted by Trish Wharry.
From fabric bought in the Barossa Valley while holidaying down the Murray River.
‘Squirrel’s Retreat’ made and quilted by Lynda Warn
‘Squirrel’s Retreat’ detail
‘Journey of a Quilter’ (detail) – made and quilted by Jill McCoy.
I liked the mix of pretty fabrics and stitched messages on this one.
‘Journey of a Quilter’ detail #2
‘Twisted Ivy’ made and quilted by Joan Waterson
‘Twisted Ivy’ detail
‘Celebration’ made and quilted by Joan Waterson
‘Made with Love’ (detail) – made by Maureen Cox, quilted by Sandra Bentley.
As this is the pattern we’re currently following, I was interested to see yet another unique version, this one using soft and gentle colours.
This was the second of two posts on the Quilt Show (‘Quilts-a-Plenty’) held last month. The first part can be found here: Colours and Patterns
Now, back to working on my own quilt…!
