Halton Quilt Show - Part two

Continuing on...

Just by looking at this quilt you can figure out how to make it. I like the way it's laid out.

This would look great hanging in a den or a man's office.

Black and white with a bit of colour.

Snails trail in red and black.

Another snails trail but using a lot more colours. I like them both.

Colourful kimonos.

 Another colourful quilt done in strips of fabric with flowers appliqued on top.

 Hummingbirds with a lot of machine quilting.

I don't know what it was about this quilt that I liked. I'm not a red or a yellow person. Perhaps it's the simplicity of the design which is just rectangles of bright floral fabrics.

A quick bull's eye quilt. Raw edge applique of circles in various sizes.

A wonderful nine patch.

Blues - or rather teals and browns.

And another in the same colour palette.

And now for some smaller pieces. These are some cute minis.

This would make a very nice gift for a gardener.

3D flowers.

3D geranium.

And the last one for today, wine grapes done with yo yos.


  1. When I think I have seen the prettiest, an even prettier one turns up (o:

  5. That was some show, Dolores - there is fabulous talent showcased there! I think the nautical one was my favorite, or maybe the colorful one with the flowers across the top - wow to all of them!
