This weekend I went to the Shipshewana Quilt show with two friends. It was a really good time. Amazing how time truly flies when you are having fun! I thought I would show a few of the quilts. I love the colors used in the above quilt.
This quilt I found really interesting because whereas I loved the quilt from far away, when I got closer to the quilt, I really disliked the fabrics used, and my thoughts on the quilt totally changed. So my friends and I thought we should perhaps swap 'ugly' fabrics and see what we can do with them! I think my addiction to fabric may be a little over the top since fabric choices often determine my 'love' for a quilt. Am I alone in this?
I love all the half square triangles in this quilt. And I really appreciate all the work that went into the border.
This quilt came away as my inspiration quilt. I decided then and there this is the kind of pattern I want to do with some vintage fabrics I bought last year that were already cut into squares. Below is a sampling of the squares I have in a shoe box I would like to use in a similar quilt.
Anyone have any vintage fabrics they care to contribute/swap for the cause?
And lastly, I joined another PIF. Not that I am done with the last PIF I am doing, but I just couldn't resist when Kelly offered a PIF on her blog. Do I have any takers? Three takers? Anyone? Anyone? I'll let you know up front, my PIF will be of the button cover hair ties/magnets variety!!
