Time for Quilts
Some more quilts from the DesMoines show with more traditional blocks. I wish I could read the information on the yellow paper so I could give the quilters credit.... I love how they add the applique in the outer border to spice up the blocks.
This is made of equilateral triangles. Love using them, but this must have sewn a zillion of them. I like the effect of making a large diamond using all the same fabrics. Really a crisp looking quilt. Not sure I'm ready to make one like it. I always get carried away cutting out fabric and would end up with enough for two quilts! And what would I do with two of them?
I'm not sure if this is a new or old quilt. But I do like that they didn't use all the same background fabric. Makes it more interesting.
I think this large wall hanging is on my list of "To Do". Again a touch of applique surrounded by a traditional block set on point. I think the pattern I have of this one shows it in Civil War Reproduction fabrics of all browns and pinks.
