Staying Connected #43

So many fabrics to work with! Colours of every tint, tone, and shade. Bold prints, quiet prints, stripes and dots, blenders and solids. Different genres. Lovely collections.

From Sharon R … Just finished putting on the bindings for my rainbow scrap quilt (I made enough bindings for a king size quilt which this isn’t, so did not get to use all the colours…what was I thinking wof x’s 10!!).

Donations for Community Quilts

From Linda F … These wonderful quilts arrived on my doorstep. Thanks so much to Ilse and Isabelle J.

The quilt below is a Japanese style print on which Ilse did a marvellous job of quilting. Each of the flowers have been carefully quilted around with gold metallic thread. On the navy backing, these flowers are replicated, and shimmer beautifully. It begs the question, which side of the quilt is more stunning?

The following two quilts were made by Isabelle J. Again, we can appreciate how a quilt comes alive when lovely quilting is applied. These will be much appreciated lap quilts.

From Diane … “Aunt Grace.” And another one bites the dust.

Did you know? Aunt Grace fabrics are classic 20’s and 30’s reproduction fabrics designed by Judie Rothermel, owner with her husband of the Schoolhouse Quilt Shoppe in Canton, Ohio.

From Marilyn … Hellebores in my rainy garden.
