I was able to make a quick trip up to our cabin this week in order to check on the progress of the repairs to our damages from the ice dam leaks over the winter. What a mess.
Can't make a trip up to Bend without stopping into Quilt Works. I especially wanted to get in to see the exhibit that Lori had organized showing all those fabulous quilts made last year under the theme Gwennie Inspired Medallions. Great little quilts!
Here is the summary. Each month, those taskmasters chose a theme for each round. Here are the quilts that were in the show:
This is a close up of Wendy Reed's quilt. Those of you who follow her will know that she has a technique to hand quilt a small block and then sews the blocks together. She did that on this quilt; although she also machine quilted one border; then went back to hand quilting for the outer border. Such a great quilt, Wendy!
I loved all these quilts and am sorry that I didn't participate. I think that I felt a little intimidated at the time so was afraid that it'd be out of my abilities to come up with these themes. So the lesson is don't be afraid. I think I could've handled it!
This was a different part of their exhibit and I couldn't resist sharing this with you. The quilt is amazing. All the quilting by Julia Jeans was fabulous. I particularly liked the story behind this quilt! Plus it's an Edyta Sitar pattern!
