This is one of several Log Cabins embellished with beautiful embroidery, rather than traditional feathers or straight line quilting.
Love Always - I like how each block is framed by triangles. A nice twist on plain old sashing.
Ode to a Mason Jar - I was recently given this pattern. I've also seen it done with butterflies, lady bugs, and insects in each jar. I love how this quilter added the kitchen curtain.
Peaky and Spike Visit the Angels - Seriously, I couldn't have made up that title! I've seen people make wonky stars, but was never quite sure what I'd do with them if I made some. Here they make a bright and cheery night sky.
Rosella's Flower Garden - named for the quilter's husband's aunt, who always wears a fresh flower in her hair.
Southern Star with Yo Yos - I love the scrappy element to this quilt. And who can resist yo-yos? I voted for this one for Viewer's Choice.
Spring's Greeting - aptly named. I'm glad to see the judges also liked this quilt.
Summer Sanctuary. The quilting detail here is breathtaking.
The quilts I was drawn to have bright, vibrant colors. But many shops (and vendors at the show) feature darker, Civil War era tones. I guess it depends on what "look" you are striving for. Me, I'm always looking to brighten things up with my quilts. :)
