Show and tell… Aunt Millie’s Garden

Carmen Nordback’s Aunt Millie’s Garden quiltI was in the Minnesota Quilters Show this past week where it received first place in the Appliqué Small category. Of course it won first place! I love the whole quilt and especially the border background treatment.

Carmen says “I reduced the size of the bocks from 14” to 10” so it was smaller than the original pattern. It was so much fun to make! Thanks again for all you do to create such fabulous designs.”

Thank you, Carmen, for sharing your beautiful quilt with us! It is a joy to behold :-).

Bullseye show and tell…

Laura Noveck finished her Bullseye quilt and the backstory is fun! First the photo…

I thought you might get a kick out of seeing my Bullseye Quilt. It was mostly completed with my stash fabrics. I only purchased 2 fat quarters for setting squares. You taught this class at the Daytona Beach AQS show in 2019 where I was so impressed by you and your project. You gave me the tools and confidence to take this on. This became my Covid quilt.

In entering it in our local guild show (150 members), I received a First Place in my size category as well as a “Viewers Choice Award.” I was told that it was also considered for “Best of Show.”  I wanted to have you see it and thank you for the inspiration. I am very proud of it. I have attached a better photo if you want to see more detail.

I did get a kick out of Laura’s quilt because it is so good! And I love that she made it mostly with fabric from her stash. Well done, Laura, and thank you for sharing you lovely quilt with us!
