I always meet the nicest quilters. I taught a couple of workshops for the Hands All Around Quilt Guild in Bloomington/Normal, Illinois, this past weekend. The first project was the Scrappy Stars quilt from my book Remembering Adelia. Everyone seemed to have a great time.
This is a great quilt made with blocks that resemble a LeMoyne Star. No set-in seams. Thought you would like to see some of the students' work. I love seeing what others make from my ideas. They're all different. Isn't that one of the best things about quilting? Being inspired by something someone else has made but creating something that's uniquely your own . . . .
Thanks for a great time, Bloomington/Normal quilters!
I'll show you some gorgeous scrappy basket blocks and quilts from the second workshop in a day or two.
I'm a quilt designer and author of five quilting books for Martingale. I love making small quilts with an antique look and find inspiration in quilts from the past and the women who made them.
