October 2010, UP and the Durand Quilt Show
I went to the Durand Quilt Show today and these were some of my favorites.
This one is applique of course. Very pretty and lots of work.
This one was phenomenal. Someone has made 2,288 2" log cabins and turned them into this 83x96" quilt. She did it all by hand. This lady had lots of scraps of fabric and loads of time. If you look closely, you can see the little 2" block on the paper. Incredible. This was definitely my choice for the viewer's choice award. The reason that quilters never throw away a scrap of fabric...
Another applique, done by hand, I think. She used batiks and it was bright and cheerful. I loved her border and she had appliqued the veins on the leaves, which I had never seen done before.
