A few weekends ago, I went to the NJ Quilt Fest. There were some amazing quilts there. As I’ve been working a lot lately on diamonds and hexagons, those type of quilts caught my eye right away.
I really liked this one done in black, white and shades of gray.
I was lucky to get close up shots of some of these quilts, here’s the center of Hexies Gone Wild:
Orange is not my favorite color, but his one was so bright and cheerful I couldn’t help but be drawn to it. Makes me think about doing something with those orange fabrics I have.
Another nice one was this colorful beauty:
This is 52″ by 58″ and is made up of 4,582 English paper pieced hexagons! It’s just beautiful – here’s a close-up of the center:
I hope some day to make a major quilt like this one.
For now, though, two of my quilts will be on display at our guild show at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York this weekend, March 28 – 29, 2015. If you will be in NYC today or tomorrow, please stop by and check out the great quilts made by our guild members and the wonderful vendors with all their goodies!Here’s a link to the Empire Quilters Facebook page with details.
Have a great weekend!
