changing quilts – fall 2016

With Fall approaching it seems like a good time to switch out a couple of my quilts.

Here is my quilt ‘Bird of Paradise’ that I made in 2008. Geez, doesn’t seem that it was THAT long ago. My nickname for the quilt was ‘When Margaret met Carol’. Inspired by Margaret Miller’s ‘Strips that Sizzle’ book and a paper pieced block by Carol Doaks. Doesn’t the border and binding blend nicely with my purple walls?

I also switched out my ‘Polka Dots’ quilt for ‘Red Stripes’ The quilt top was also completed in 2008. I must have been very busy that year.

I took my ‘Red Strips’ design and tweaked it a bit so that I could use some fussy cut animal fabric. The photo was taken at the 2010 Minnesota Quilt Show. Unfortunately, not a great photo but you get the idea.
