Others' Quilts

There were so many inspiring quilts and projects at weekend but I chose a few pictures of the best to show here....well by best I mean the ones more inspiring to me. One gal used Kaffe Fassett fabrics and really impressed me. The shadowed nine patch was done by our LQ shop owners daughter.
This quilt has quite an interesting story. Apparently 15 years ago the local quilt guild was raffling off blocks for some fundraiser. One gal won them and didn't do anything with them for all these years....so she was going to throw them out. Another gal in our weekend group took the blocks and put this together...had it quilted and took it back to the original owner to show. The original owner was stunned and actually thought this gal would give her the quilt!! But that didn't happen....I didn't get a good picture of the quilting but it's hand quilted with baskets in the white blocks...it's beautiful.
This will be a granddaughters quilt...I have a WIP nearly just like it...someday I'll finish it!
Ahhh and this cherry of a quilt....there are those Cherry Baby fabs again...did I mention I bought more of them to make this table cloth??? It is trully lovely in person and besides myself there were 4 other gals wanting to copy cat this quilt.

A lot of great inspiration out there. They are all terrific quilts. The story of the basket quilt is great. You never know what you've got until it is gone.
