I love show and tell! Today I have two quilts to share with you… should it be show and tells? First up is Sharon Hendrix’s version of Lorna’s Vine…
I recently completed one of your patterns, Lorna’s Vine, from your book Amish-Inspired. I hand applique and hand quilted the quilt. Thru the years I have completed many Piece O’ Cake quilts.
My piece is hand quilted by me in Gutterman thread in a lime green color, it reads very neutral against the red fabrics.
Sharon, you did a fabulous job! I love the change you made to the wheel block. I don’t know that I would have thought to use lime green thread but it definitely works.
Next up is Lynn Tubbe’s version of A Walk In The Mountains, made with wool…
This quilt hung at the Pacific International Quilt Festival (PIQF) last year, and was awarded Best Use of Embellishment in the traditional category. I really enjoyed modifying your pattern in order to highlight all my wools. I thought the plaid leaves were especially fun.
This is also a spectacular quilt! I want to congratulate both Sharon and Lynn—very nicely done, indeed!
Both quilts are just marvellous. And the quilting in the first one. Vow! Have a good day Birgitt
Just lovely, both of them! Beautiful work.
Both quilts are stunning with compelling color work. Amish Inspired is a book I’m looking forward to digging into. Like Becky’s sons, I’m hooked on those quilts! I am so thrilled with the lime green quilting thread looking neutral on the red ground! I’m gong to drop everything today and make some tiny samples as a reference.
They are both beautiful. red quilts always call to me and draw me in. Beautiful work.
