These are the fabrics used in the challenge quilts - The following four quilts were part of the challenge.
Obviously a winner - in the pieced category.
This one had that really nice 3-D effect that I like so much. (It's sideways because blogger won't co-operate but it still looks OK)
Believe it or not, this one is sideways too - but don't tell anyone.
This one was just so darn cute - a winner in the applique category,no doubt. I would love to know if it's a commercial pattern or someone's imagination.
A novel way to use up all manner of neck wear - and labels.
A nice old-fashioned fan quilt.
A close-up of the quilting.
A great colour combination and one you don't find often.
A wonderful quilt. Great use of just two blocks.
Lovely, muted colours. Kind of makes you not notice that it's a sampler.
Winding ways - heavily quilted.
A great scrap quilt - also heavily quilted.
This landscape is of the Three Sisters which are clearly visible from Canmore, Alberta.
A nice little piece - hand quilted.
A memento of a trip.
And, not to be out-done, a memento of a trip to New Zealand - using fabrics purchased there.
One of my all-time favourite quilts. Simplicity.
A cute, quick baby quilt.
And, for my daughter Laila, Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Bill/Jim.
Also, in redwork.
I leave you today with this one. Does anyone know if this is a commercial pattern and if so, who the designer is?
Stay tuned for part two - tomorrow.
