This quilter knows how to work with color (not to mention flying geese)!  I do not know for certain, but the maker probably paper, or foundation, pieced this quilt.

*Update: A commenter has informed me that the above quilt was designed by  Jacqueline de Jonge  and is paper pieced.   It is an award winning quilt called ‘Catch Me If You Can’.

This next quilt is a very busy, but cute quilt.  The best part is when one looks more closely.

There is a whole lot of hand embroidered sweetness going on here!

  How many of us inherit blocks from block exchanges, or have orphan blocks from classes or rejected projects?  Lots, I know.  We are always looking for a way to use them.  The sampler isn’t considered spectacular, but I thought the variety of blocks were combined very well in the following quilt.

Do you like scrappy?  Anything goes!  This quilter unified her scraps by using red and black squares throughout.  I love it!

Another type of quilt is the story quilt.  Mary Lou Weidman is a master at telling stories through quilts.  Click here for her blog.

Monica Brower created a story quilt called, ‘When Grandfather Cut Loose the Pigs’, just for the WSQ 2013 quilt show.  Way fun!

The next quilter not only put a lot of thought and effort into her machine quilting, but into the borders as well.

What attracted me to this quilt where the leaves are scattered, or floating, across the top?

This quilter dared to combine both cotton and wool for a nice tactile experience.

I hope you are enjoying the show.  There is more yet to come!

Happy quilting!

  1. That first black & rainbow quilt is from a Jacqueline deJonge pattern and done in the same colors as the pattern suggests. And yes, it is paper pieced. Her website is Becolourful.com or something close to that. She’s fabulous.
