I didn't get much done with the Dresden Plate Project. I am using scraps to make the blades. Once I have used all the scraps up, I will go into the uncut yardages that remain.
I did get a few more blades cut out though!
Another block came in for the Folk Art Quilt:
This one is going to be a tough one. Look at all those petals I have to cut out!!!
The last thing I want to talk about is the quilt show I went to on Friday. This was an NQA show in Little Rock, Arkansas. They are supposed to be here for three or four more years. I believe it has been many years since they had a show here. I might enter a quilt next year. This time though, I just went to check it out.
Here are photos from the show:
|I took this photo because of Jaye's peacock project|
I really like how the quilter used colored threads on black cloth to make this design:
The squiggles on this quilt are fabric squiggles, not thread:
|I wonder if variegated threads would look good for quilting?|
The artistic quilting on this one was amazing! Can you see the octopus?
|Just quilting ideas|
|I know the person that did the cat quilt! (No, not me)|
I need to get a nicer purse. Denim isn't a look I like anymore. hahahahaha
This quilt is whimsical. Look at the little quilt on the left:
Wasn't that clever?!
Speaking of clever:
A sewing machine made from spool blocks! Not only spool blocks, but silk fabrics too:
I can really admire applique work these days:
I am intimidated by quilting like this:
Here is a quilt that is both appliqued AND quilted well:
I am trying to get ideas for how I will be quilting my "My Tweets" quilt:
More quilting ideas:
|Look at that knot work for the boarder, not to mention the quilting!|
This is VERY densely quilted:
|I think this is silk too|
This last set of photos combined applique and quilting that I liked:
That's it for this Sunday. Are you making any blocks for the Dresden Plate Project? Why are you not putting a photo up in the Flickr group?
Till next time, happy sewing y'all!
