Some More Beauties

We just got home from our walk and the temp is up to 51º.  It was in the forties when we started out.  My daughter and her husband are on a plane on their way here and it's gonna be cold the whole time they are here.  Oh well, it's better that the weather in Chicago (I hope!)

Believe it or not, I still have more quilts to show you from Quiltcon.  Here goes:



'Trestle Nestle' was done by Marla Varner.  It was made with free form cutting techniques and the negative spaces are made with white linen.  It is hand quilted.


 

This quilt was inspired by Autumn Kent's version of this poem.  It is called 'Autumn is Wistful' and was done by Channe Kimber.  It was both



hand appliquéd and hand quilted..



"Pinball' was done with Michael Miller challenge fabric.  It uses some of the fabric from his Luxe line.  Betsy Vinegard was the artist.



Here is a close up of the beautiful quilting.



This quilt called 'Diamond Deluxe' was done by Tiffany Baxter for the Michael Miller Challenge.



She got her inspiration from the diamonds in the fabric.

 

Wendy Richards did this adorable quilt called 'Birds On A Wire' also for the MM fabric challenge.  It was both machine pieced and quilted.



This is one of my favorites, called 'Warp and Weft' and it was in the nine patch challenge.  Cheryl Brickey  made it using woven strips of fabric.  It was machine quilted.

 

Here is a cool closeup of it.  Love love.



The last one for today is done by Lindsey Neill and it is based on a drunkard's path and bias tape appliqué.  The name of it is 'Die Beem (Trees)'.



It was machine pieced and machine quilted.
