I made the quilt block pictured above, and it was an orphan, leftover from when I was making my Every Little Bit quilt featured in American Patchwork & Quilting magazine (June 2015 issue).
I offered a couple of these orphan blocks in a blog raffle when the magazine came out, and Barbara Leyland was one of the winners. She recently sent me this photo of how she framed the block, and I thought it looked really great, and wanted to share her idea with all of you. Love, love the wormed wood frame! Great job, Barb....and thanks for sending he photo for all of us to enjoy!!
Shop owner, Kathy Will, her family, and lots of friendly helpers created an outstanding event.
As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by this beauty, which is a version of my antique quilt, also published in American Patchwork & Quilting magazine, called Count Your Lucky Stars (June 2014 issue.)
And the surprises when on from there as I couldn't believe how many of the quilts I have designed were hanging in the show!! What a thrill!!
Here is but a sampling....
|Nabby's Dowry Freebie Sew Along|
|Marcus Designers' Sew Along called Friends & Companions|
|Market Day Freebie Sew Along|
Honestly, these were but a few of the many beautiful quilts on display at the quilt show. I wish I could have shown them all and named each quilter, but time just does not allow for that. I hope you enjoyed seeing these quilts, and they inspired you the way they did me.
Off to do some piecing.....J*O*Y
