Sew Sunday ~ More WA Star Quilt Guild Show

Elizabeth asked me to show more pictures I took at the quilt show for those who couldn't make it, so I am happily posting more pictures for you today.  :)

The little birdie on this quilt reminds me of the Stampin' UP! bird punch.  I'm planning on using this quilt as inspiration for a Christmas Card.  

There were several miniature quilts about the size of a placemat.  This one was another quilt inspiring me to make a card.  Are you ever inspired by one medium to work in another?   I am.  I'm inspired every day by something I see.

Simple pattern, but striking colors and lovely quilting.

Like I said yesterday, I was really noticing the effect that quilting can have.  It can pay a key roll in the design of a quilt.

Not only do I like this quilt because of the monochromatic colors and beautiful applique, but it reminds me of the disappearing 4 patch I'm working on right now for Tyler.  It's set on point, and I love the way it looks.  Definitely going to have to make this design.

I wish you could see this one in person.  They had little rhinestones all over reflecting the light and looking like snow crystals.

Love the turtles.  It reminds me of the pictures my parents brought home from their trip to the Caymen Islands. 

Yesterday I showed you a close up of the painted quilt above, but didn't include this full shot.  isn't it incredible?!!!

Here is the close up, in case you missed it yesterday. 

These two quilts look like something I could actually make, unlike the island one above them. 

Isn't that modern black rainbow quilt striking?  I took a picture of the flower blossoms to remind myself that I bought fabric to make a baby quilt like this.  ;)

I thought my boys would like this quilt.  I think it was called space checkers.  I know "checkers" was in the name.  Next time I take pictures at a quilt show I'll make sure to take more pictures of the descriptions.

Wow, I still haven't shown all the pictures I've taken!  I didn't think I had taken that many.  ;)  I'll post the rest next weekend for you.   Come back tomorrow to see more of my Design Team cards for World Card Making Day at StampNation.

Creative Blessings,
Heather North

Thank you! I hope I become a faster sewer over time because there are so many things I want to create. 2-3 months per quilt is too long. :)

Thank you, Heather! I've been saying I need an extra lifetime to accomplish all the quilting I want to do, but I think I have to change that to TWO extra lifetimes after seeing some of these beauties - yikes! Again, many thanks for showing more photos.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful works of art with us. I have two quilts my mother made when she was pregnant with me. One uses the Wedding Ring pattern and the other has large butterflies, their bodies stuffed to pop them up. They're such a wonderful heritage.

No problem, Liz. I was happy to do it. :)

Kat, that is priceless. I would love to see them some time. I've wanted to make a wedding ring quilt for about 15 years now. I'm intimidated by the curves. Recently I found someone online with a quick curve ruler for sale that just might be the thing to get me to give that pattern a try. Were the butterflies your baby quilt?
