More Favorites from the 2013 Odessa, WA, Quilt Show
Linda Powell's quilt, "Star and Ribbons", is one of the ones I really like. I saw it first, when Lise Ott (Experience Quilts! quilt shop owner), was quilting it on her long arm machine. So cheerful! Don't you just love a rainbow?
Gail Kiesz, from our Saturday Quilt Group, made this quilt, with our help, called "Red White Equinox". Our Saturday group meets once a month and there are about 12 of us in it. We decide, each one of us, on a pieced quilt we would like to do. We give out fabric and a pattern to each member of the group and each one has a month to piece the block and return it in time for the next meeting. Each member is assigned a month in the year when her blocks have to be ready to distribute. I really liked this simple, red and white pattern and thought the quilt was very successful.
Quilt guild members, Kathy Taylor and Scotty Bacon went together to buy these vintage blocks on E-bay. They split them up and each one made her own quilt from the blocks. Very nice and, what a lucky find!
My friend, Shari Wilson, of Davenport, made this wall hanging of houses, "Good in Any Kind of Weather". Her applique work is simply wonderful. She designs all her own quilts.
Speaking of designs, this wall hanging is by Prairie Cottage Corner and titled "Harvest Mice". It's part of our new fall offering of wall hangings for sale now. The one below, too, is part of our series for autumn....
"Harvest Kitty". The third design in the series was offered at the Portland quilt market in May by Pattern Peddlers. You can purchase all three there.
"Family Memories" by Linda Kuch, of Odessa, is one of the nicest uses of photographs in a quilt that I have ever seen. I think she did a great job of integrating the colors so that the precious photos come forward enough to be clearly seen. More to come......
