My Sisters Quilt Show photos

To kick off ....a wonky sorta Gee's Bend flavored quilt. I am currently reading Collaborative Quilting by Freddy Moran & Gwen Marston-reading as in actually reading the text- when I first bought it, I certainly paged through and enjoyed all the photos but didn't take time to read it cover to cover.

It was really great to see a few maverick/wonky inspired quilts at Sisters...I am sure I missed many wonderful quilts-as we certainly did not cover all of the places where they were being shown.

here is my idea of an applique I would love to own...maybe one day even try and make!

This is my idea of a wonderful orphan quilt ! Finn....sorry, I did not note names on any of the quilts I took photos of- so can not give the proper person credit...just really enjoyed this quilt.





we could not resist showing this amazing quilt- the closer you got, the less you knew what you were looking at!

that dog quilt is amazing. check out Kristin's Knit One Quilt Too blog - I think that top quilt and the happy orphany looking one are both by Betsy Rickles. Wonderful and fun.

I love the simplicity of that wonky Gee's Bend quilt. I can't imagine making a quilt like that dog quilt. I envy you being able to go to Sisters. I have only seen the show a few years ago, but I vow to return one day! Thanks for sharing the photos.
