Will's larger quilts

Because she has a true shortage of space, Will prefers to make tops rather than "quilts"... She doesn't quilt many of her tops. So these pictures are of tops--- and let me tell you, she sure does make a lot! I don't know when she gets the time! Many are hand pieced. All are absolutely perfect-- all her points meet up. My favorite thing in looking at Will's quilts is her fabric choices. She has an amazing ability to put such a variety of fabrics together to create beautiful effects!

This is a Quiltmania project that's been  a mystery. I think it's a Di Ford pattern

Here's her newest border with hexies. You can't tell but her vine is a multicolored print that's not even green!

Postage stamp but on point!!

Gorgeous sampler 

Around the world-- done perfectly without a design wall

The setting triangles are a large scale blue floral. I think she said that it was a Dutch chintz

Tiny tiny pineapples 

This medallion is gorgeous! I couldn't get the whole thing in the picture! Too many borders!

What great colors- I wouldn't have thought of using purple as sashing!

A great log cabin setting 

I love the simplicity of this!

I'm not finding a picture of her Nearly Insane quilt. I wonder if I was in such awe that I failed to take a picture! Damn!

Hope you enjoyed these! 

Will took me to a friend's apartment who is a quilt collector! I've got pictures to post from that amazing experience next! 


  1. amazingly beautiful works! I love that first flower pot--some people just have that color gene I guess. I am sending for a 3 in 1 color wheel to try to learn how to put just a few colors together --my scrappy quilts use tons of fabrics and are all busy looking. Needing a change I think. thank you for showing off her quilts. Be sure to tell her I think her works are gorgeous...hugs, Julierose

  4. I enjoyed the trunk show from this and the previous post. She is a prolific quilter.

  5. It is a pleasure to view these tops. They are all pretty.

    I am not going to feel guilty anymore for not quilting all my projects.

  6. I so enjoyed these. Love the medallion "with too many borders" and the last picture ... just gorgeous all of them. Thanks for sharing.
