A few more from the quilt show...

I thought I would show a few more from the quilt show...I thought you might enjoy all the bright beautiful colors of this quilt. Wouldn't it brighten up a room on a dreary winter day?



This one was from Germany.....the below photo shows the way the quilting showed up on back. It is as pretty in its own way as the front.


Then we have another leaf quilt below....
it is not my favorite but I am definitely going to have to do a leave quilt because they sure appeal to me.


And here we have a couple more...

So much work and so much talent.

Tomorrow I will try to show you my favorite quilt...it is nothing like these...it is just a basic usable quilt. Not that I wouldn't love any of the above....but quilts that are made for the bed are what really pulls at my heart....when I am making a quilt with someone in mind, it is like stitching a prayer for them...wanting the best in life for them. I like knowing that my daughters both sleep under a quilt that I have made them...they are wrapped in my love.

These are simple gorgeous. SOOOO much color and talent and work! I like your thoughts on it: especially the "Stitching a Prayer for them"...how truly lovely.

The first and the last are my favorites of this group! I can only assume they are both completely appliqued. It's funny, but I adore appliqued quilts, yet don't enjoy applique myself! :-) Maybe that's why I love them so much, because I know how hard it is! :-) But, actually the artistry of these two and the one also with the amazingly pretty quilted back, just blow you away! I love color and artistic design!!!!

The one with the sax man was one of my favorites for some reason :-) Just like the whimsy of it.

Love the colors in that first one ...
Hugs,

Thanks for sharing these beautiful quilts with us, Rose! I'm just starting quilting and I can see that I have a long way to go before I get to the level of these quilters.
