Check out the quilt behind Norma. It was another "stop me dead in my tracks" quilt. It's all wool on cotton backgrounds. I think all the backgrounds are the wonderful Japanese Daiwabo fabrics.
Here's a better look at it. Stunning, right? I wish you could have seen it in person. Pictures just don't do these quilts justice.
This one is a 9 block gem. I'm sure there will be shops out there doing both of these as Block of the Months. Maybe Karen will be one of them. Right, Karen?
The booth was full of all new designs.
If you're looking for patriotic quilts to make...go no further. This is your place!
How about a stuffed kitty to carry in the 4th of July parade!
Wouldn't this look cute in your entryway?
This is what I'm feeling right now with the wonderful spring weather we're having!
"Oh Happy Day" says it perfectly!
The Marcus Brothers booth had some delicious Civil War quilts. I don't know the name or the designer of this one. Can anyone help out?
This is the new Block of the Month from Paula Barnes of Red Crinoline Quilts. Many of you already know that Paula's husband passed away suddenly at the age of 60 just a few weeks before Quilt Market. Needless to say, Paula, Mary Ellen and their wonderful booth full of quilts was greatly missed. Our hearts go out to you Paula!
Also at the Marcus Brothers booth was this lovely quilt by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts. If I remember correctly, the name of the pattern is Abigail's Pins. I specifically looked for the quilt after seeing it on Pam's blog before market. It was well worth the search.
I'd say there's some inspiration for you with these pictures. There sure is for me!
Still more to come.
