Here we have a lovely sampler quilt , there is just something special about samplers and this was beautifully quilted .
I loved the colors in this one , it would make a lovely fall quilt , simple design but so effective .
There were a few small crazy quilts and not to be mean but the price was crazy too , I think this one was $900 and it is not even a lap size but oh it is pretty .
Another crazy quilt and I will show one more all by the same lady and all rather pricey . The outside border is velvet on this one , pretty for sure .
The final crazy quilt , it is nice but not quite as pretty as the other two in my humble opinion but of course that is in the eye of the beholder isn't it .
This quilt was eyed by my granddaughter Alyssa and she asked that it be placed on the bed and I must admit that once on the bed I was totally in awe , I know for certain the picture does not do this justice at all it truly is magnificent with more detail than any quilt I have seen in a very long time . I want to share a few close ups of the blocks as the little additions of embroidery that you might not see without a close up is well worth showing . I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did viewing this quilt.
The best way to see a skunk ,note the little spiders or ants crawling along and the cute turtle investigating the skunk , too cute.
This is part of the border where there are lots of flowers appliqued and little spiders , frogs and bees etc. Such detail , incredible really , it must have taken a very long time to complete this quilt.
Finally I will close with this one which is of the top of the quilt , aren't these birds gorgeous as they are enjoying a treat of some berries , there are flowers appliqued in yet another border above this and I could show you more but I think perhaps I have shown you enough for you to appreciate the work that went into the making of this quilt , I love it because I love animals and birds and also because the fabrics chosen are perfect for each element where they were used , I do wonder if perhaps this was a kit but whoever did the fabric choices really has a knack for getting the right one for the right place .
So that's it for today's show , I know I concentrated on this woodland quilt but I just had to share it and hope you like it too,later on this week I will give you a few photos of another show I attended .
As a closing I am wondering if there are any others interested in taking part in the postcard exchange , the cards do not have to be mailed out until the 21st of Sept so lots of time to get this small project complete , please let me know , thanks .
Enjoy your day .
