Quilts bring comfort in many forms.
Most of the quilts shared during Show and Tell in May with our guild Nimble Thimbles were made as gifts for family members.
Barb recently lost her brother, and as part of the healing, she is constructing tribute quilts for his children.
Pieces of her brother's clothing were incorporated amidst the orange and blue, for his son who is a Florida Gators fan. The backing is a Gators print.
Pattern: Tossed 9 Patch by Eleanor Burns Quilt In A Day.
Sometimes we work outside our box when family members request a quilt.
We often spend hours hunting for fabrics that we hope will match their tastes.
Delores will present this quilt to her sister who loves florals.
The 2 blocks in this quilt really are simple with a 9-patch and Square In A Square.
Very nice use of contrast, as your eye goes from light to dark.
The black background really helps these flying geese pop.
Kathy joined Bonnie Hunter (Quiltville) for her Orca Bay 2011 Mystery Quilt Along
Lots of little itty bit and pieces in red, white and blue.
A great stash buster.
One of the things I love about Bonnie's patterns is her use of scraps to make the most interesting designs.
She has a wonderful way of letting the color do the talking rather than the fabric or print.
