quilts from the madison show…

great scrappy quilt…can you see it done maybe with 4" blocks? how sweet would that be?
not a beginner pattern, but if you can cut and sew accurate it can be done…

I literally got to spend 15 minutes walking the show before it opened.  These quilts are inspiration for a lot of reasons, it may be the color schemes, the quilting ideas, the patterns themselves might give you a whole other idea for something else…but here are my photos from the show.  I may not photograph the whole quilt, and like I said I did not have very much time so I did not note who’s quilt was who’s.  I am lucky to have the 15 min. to view.

    I absolutely adore this pattern and I am happy to see someone working on it. How do you fel about the fabrics and the color choices. I want to make this one but I was thinking of just ordering the patterns and not the material…I am unsure. I would love to hear what you think but I do love the pattern. Blessings, Dianntha

      I hope you are talking about the Merry Christmas pattern…it is very easy and fun to stitch…we used Japanese fabrics for the background and they are amazing to sew with…these pics do nothing for the true look of the hand dyed wools and background fabrics…must see in person to realize how great they are!

    Wow! Those quilts are amazing! Do you remember the name of the last quilt? You commented not a beginning pattern, but if you can cut and sew accurate, it can be done. I have never seen that quilt before.

    Happy Quilting!

    Lisa… what is the name of the pattern of the quilt you made with the unique border that “you hadn’t thought of”…I’m sure yours was just as stunning…Thanks Karen C.
