Ideal Stitches at the Fair

I am thrilled to have eight quilts in the fair. To be honest only two are personally mine and the rest are quilts that I have quilted for customers. It was exciting to find out that three of the entrees received blue ribbons. After visiting the quilts it was off to get fry bread and corn on the cob!

You have to step back to appreciate the layout of this three quarter log cabin quilt and then get up close to appreciate the paisley quilting design dancing across the quilt.  The color combination is fantastic and the border fabric is just perfect for this quilt.

This quilt looks incredible and to think it started out as a drawer full of old men’s ties.  I was so excited for the fabrics that gave me a fantastic palette to free motion feathers and curls as it turned the plain quilt top into something spectacular.

This huge quilt has quite a lot to delight your eye.  First is the amazing array of fall fabrics on an ivory fairy frost background; stunning!  Second is the piecing layout of diamond, X’s, or circles depending on how you view it; incredible.  And third is the quilting design comprised of sunflowers in four different patterns; phenomenal!
