Baby Quilt

Green and white baby quilt for George, pieced by Grandmother Marge M.  I found an alphabet border design to compliment the quilt.  Love her applique.

Bonnie Hunter

We had a great lecture last night from Bonnie Hunter.  She told us how she manages her fabric and her method of organizing USABLE scraps.  We all have those bins of scraps - now I know what to do with them to turn them into something beautiful.  Here is the link to all the information she gave us.  It will take you to her website.   http://quiltville.com/scrapusersystempf.html

She is an energizer bunny.  She said she got in 5 hours of piecing in the last 24 hours.  She does a lot of things in 15-minute increments.  Photos from last night.  As you can see, we had a full house and I was in one of the last rows. 
 This one is called Midnight Flight and is one of the workshops this weekend.

 All these were made from her stash of organized scraps.

 I think the one below includes material she cut from men's shirts.  She uses any 100% cotton, cotton-linen shirt.  A 4X men's shirt is almost 2 yards of material. 
 If you don't like real scrappy, choose two colors plus a neutral.  I like how this turned out.
 She often uses one solid color, red, to emphasize a design.
 She started this because she had a lot of left over 3" nine-patches.

 Her hexagon project.  Yes, she pieced 5 hexagons while she was waiting to speak.  Darn her!
  Her website has over 45 free pattern on it and mounds of useful information.  Check it out:  http://quiltville.com/

Paducah Quilts

Last ones...

 These cardinals are so pretty. 
 I'd take this flower quilt home with me!  Love it.

 It's all in the details...

 There was more quilting than quilt on this one!
Here is a picture of us gals.  We had a fun time.  Hope you enjoyed the pictures of the quilt show.

Paducah Quilts

More quilts... 
 I liked this pictorial quilt.  She used beads to replicate water coming out of the fountain. 
 The border on this one looks like a frame.

 The same person submitted two quilts.  This is a close-up.
