I am off to sew with some of my quilting friends in San Jose today, and expect to be wowed by the projects they are working on. I love seeing the work of others, as it often provides me with challenging ideas and introduces me to methods I could incorporate into my own quilts. The two quilts featured below I photographed at a recent Opening Sew class at Eddie's Quilting Bee in Sunnyvale, CA.
This beautiful strippy quilt was made in the blended style I am so obsessed with lately. The maker used my favorite shades of green and cream and rose, and what I particularly would like you to notice is the way she embellished some individual squares. Also, see that she used a textured upholstery fabric for the green triangles? What great imagination and what a romantic and interesting quilt!
The quilt below is all redwork. Doesn't it make you want to go buy some red embroidery floss and get going on making one for yourself? Does anyone know of a good book on redwork?
