I've been working hard at trying to finish up the Moda Blockheads II, which I fell woefully behind on! I think I have about another 10 to still do. UGH...
In case you're doing this project, you'll notice that I pieced it differently than they suggested: their instructions said to piece it across in rows. I decided to do each star separately. They aren't perfect but close enough. They're TINY--3" stars, and we all know that minis aren't my strong-suit. ;-)
Can you tell I'm doing them in patriotic colors? VBG
I realized there are more Vermont show pictures I failed to share:
This is a Primitive Gatherings pattern which I really did love.
This is Lorraine Hoffman's Moda Blockheads I and I loved her setting. Here's a close up.
I have made a variation of this quilt and still love it.
Here are some of the antique quilts I really did love. Wendy Reed (constantquilter) and Barb Vedder (funwithbarb) have posted some pictures but there are some I photographed that I think they didn't post. Please enjoy the appliqué and don't miss the hand quilting!
This one was hanging from the roof so I couldn't get a great picture. I tried a corner of the quilt using the close-up on my phone! I do love the color combination! And check out the buds in the flowers!!
There were several quilts with letters and dates pieced and appliquéd that I thought were really interesting! So different from the way that present-day quilters add letters.
This sampler was sashed in a different way that I liked a lot:
I also loved the corner flowers in the center; this was a flower that the quilter used a little differently in another quilt.
Credit must be given to Sharon Waddell, who presented most of these antique quilts. She also did a program walking around the exhibit pointing out things and histories we didn't realize. She's got an amazing collection of quilts and I really did appreciate seeing these antique quilts from New York, which we wouldn't otherwise see on the West Coast.
Next up will be the quilts from the Shelburne Museum in Vermont. I will post those tomorrow since we are driving back up to the cabin on Monday with the 3 grandkids and I expect I'll have little time to post.
Have a great quilty weekend!!
