Show and tell…

Lisa Corneilson sent me pictures of two of her (amazing) ecently finished quilts. The first quilt is Tulips in the Park

I love the setting Lisa used on this quilt. I would never have thought of using those stars in the block corners and they are an excellent choice. Well done, Lisa!

Here is what Lisa wrote:

I started “Tulips in the Park” as a block of the month back in the 1900’s, lol, and I finally finished quilting it! I decided to hand quilt it with this curly Q whimsical, free hand quilt design, and it got old fast, so I put it away for years at a time taking it out and quilting for a few days and then back it went to the abyss of unfinished quilts.

 

This year I decided to finish things up so it’s my first finish of 2018 and I am so happy with it.

 

I love your patterns and this is one of my favorites. I changed the setting and created my own border and luckily I saved material for the binding, using the stripe from your collection of fabrics at the time. I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to use that fabric. Now it is free to use in other projects. I learned a lot about appliqué from your books and I thank you for your inspiration and wonderful patterns!

 

This blue one was a guild challenge – monochromatic while including the guild block which is “Country Roads.”  It’s been awhile, 2000 I think, but I also used your flowers in this one. I won the challenge.

This quilt is also very well done. The flowers are taken from Stars in the Garden and it is an excellent example of how you can use elements of pattern in new ways. I especially appreciate the pieced background behind the flowers.

Lisa, you made two lovely quilts AND they are finished. Way to go, you!
