Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

More eye-catching quilts

As I mentioned yesterday, I am now down to showing a miscellaneous grouping of quilts that caught my eye at the International Quilt Festival.

Get ready for some more!!

There was an exhibition called “I Spy….a Barn Quilt!” and the quilts were certainly bright and cheery…..

I am sorry that I didn’t get the name of the maker of this quilt…..

….but if I was a cow, I am thinking that I might get dizzy heading into the barn for the evening!!!

I loved the bright colors in this one by Cynthia Smith and quilted by Gracie’s Petunias Quilts…..

“Carpenter’s Star”

Don’t you love the quilting that adds a wood grain to this “wooden” quilt!!

Finally is this beauty from Victoria Findlay-Wolfe and quilted by Shelly Pagliai…..


I am a fan of her work and this piece that started with a Lemoyne Star block is amazing!!

Moving right along…..

There was an exhibition called “Celebration of Life” and there were several quilts there that were memorializing people, places and things!!

This first quilt by Charlotte Beech was so much fun to look at……

“Shirt Off His Back”

She made it using shirts from a friend who has since passed from Alzheimer’s.

I love the way she used the stripes and plaids to create the hexagons…..

This fun quilt from Marina Panzhinskaya celebrated her daughter’s wedding, her new family and their joint unconditional love for cats!!!

“City Cats”

I am not sure what I liked best…..

…..the expressions on the cat’s faces……

….the wonky city border……

…or the absolutely STUNNING quilting…..

Spoiler alert…..I bought a tool and book about quilting these intricate designs!!

The final quilt is from one of my all-time favorite quilters….. Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry…..

“Watch Master”

This quilt is a homage to her father who was a watch repairman.

It is yet another example of how Caryl has reinvented herself over the years. Oh to be like her!!!

That’s all for today but on Friday there will be more…..
