Lots of Quilts on Show!
I regularly teach a group of ladies from around Richmond. We have been together for ten years and have shared lots of sewing, laughs and major events in our lives.
The girls often make one of my quilt projects at the same time as well as individually choose different projects to work on.
We have been working on one of my whack and stack designs called "Rococo", based on eight pointed diamonds to make Le Moyne star blocks. Here are some of the different variations:
First is Kate's quilt in beautiful turquoise blue. Wow!
Next is a version by Jan in a Leesa Chandler fabric in black and cream Australian native flora.
Here are Kim's blocks also of Australian native flowers in red, yellow and green.
This is Di's version in soft "Paris Flea Market" - so different and gorgeous.
Here is Mary's version from a bright Kaffe fabric in hot pink, lime green and purple!
This is Christine's version of one of my jelly roll quilt patterns called "Jelly Mosaic" where she has used a jelly roll of all Japanese fabrics. Glorious.
Here is Jan's version of "Rose Rhapsody". I made this quilt more than ten years ago to demonstrate Baltimore appliqué three dimensional techniques.
