A Senior’s Moment….??

…I’ve been having a lot of those lately!!  I forgot that I was going to show you more of this quilt from the Hemet Quilt Show…the pattern is from Primitive Gatherings and it’s called Folk Art Album. 

This quilt stopped me in my tracks!  STUNNING!! The black background is a super soft flannel and the white is a mottled beige in the same soft fabric.  Gorgeous work…

Let me show you some close up pictures..the wool is so vibrant and the colours are gorgeous!  Oh, heck…let me just show you all the  pictures so that you can see for yourself!

There you have it!  The quilt is all wool appliqued by hand with machine quilting.

I took several pictures of the quilter’s card…I’m hoping we can see who she is and give her some well deserved recognition!

I hope when you click on each picture you can see her workmanship!!

Have a magical Monday and Happy Quilting~P

You are right....Lola has made a magnificent piece of art. I do envy all the fun you are having, all the quilt shows and fabric shops and meeting up with other quilters you are getting to do. We had a great weekend in Logan...in the snow...cuddling our sweet granddaughter and seeing Brian Regan (a comedian). If you ever get a chance to see one of his shows...do it! He is so funny.

Love that quilt. I have mine out, now i need to work on it again. I used patterns from different books, so once I have the applique blocks done, I have to fit in some crazy pieces to fit it all together.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful adventures with us! I love all the great places you've gone (especially the quilty ones!) and all of the pictures. I am from AZ, now living in Vancouver Wa, and I so envy your trips down south...oh to see the sun again. When my son is grown I am packing up our little RV and heading south - with or without the spouse (he has been warned!)

I'm so glad you posted this - I have finished this top but haven't decided how to quilt it. Mine is hand appliqued as well and I'm considering machine quilting. Just can't decide. :) blessings, marlene
