Bright baby quilt

Isn't this a fun, bright baby quilt?  This was quilted using variegated thread, using the Circuit Board pattern.

Cross-hatch blocks

Custom quilt- feather wreaths

Isn't this a cheery quilt... beautiful floral prints & white background.  I repeated a feather wreath in the body of the quilt- looks nice on the back, too with all the feathers.

Tulip Festival Quilt Show

Yesterday I had a chance to visit the Tulip Festival Quilt Show in Orange City.  Every year the Sioux Prairie Quilter's Guild puts on a show- it was another beautiful group of quilts this year.  The guild did workshops this year on Bargello quilts and French Braid quilts, so they had a big group of each of these showing the different quilts that were started during the workshops.  It was so much fun to see how each quilts looked so different with the fabric choices of the quilter.  From Christmas fabrics to black & white to brights- all so very different.  And those Bargello's- some of the sections had 1/4" finished size strips- wow!

Florence pattern

This French Braid quilt was done with the "Florence" pattern.  It's a leafy sort of design that goes with alot of fabrics.
