Eye Candy for Quilters

Here is a Grandmothers Flower garden quilt made in the 60’s or 70’s.  Lovely scrappy hexagons in no particular order.  The black solid adds a great touch.  A very large quilt, the hexagons are only a couple inches finished.  It was hand pieced and done extremely well.  The quilt was flat and square up to the borders.  The owner was able to pick out a few pieces of fabric that she knows were clothing of hers and her sisters.

This is a sampler with a unique setting.  We should remember these settings, sometimes simple sashing between blocks it just the ticket but with a bit of a twist the quilt takes on an entirely different look.  You do see the stars, right?

Do any of you other quilters have to put marks like this arrow on your quilts?  You know why its there, right??

How about Princess?  What a fun quilt for a young girl.  Cathy used minky for the hair.

Pineapple Quilt with floral applique done in a brodiere purse (misspelled I am sure) technique.  I am also very fond of the intense colors.

Another sampler, also a unique setting.  I believe this was a block of the month but I don’t know from where.
