This is a selection of my favourite quilts from the "traditional" section, together with the title of the quilt and the name of the quilter, together with the accompanying information from the FOQ competition catalogue. I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I did - tomorrow I'll share another group with you!
Deidre and Keith - A Journey - by Breege Watson.
Machine piecing and machine quilted on a domestic machine. All cotton fabrics with cotton batting. Breege stated: This quilt was made to mark my daughter's wedding. I know she likes traditional and wanted something with stars to reflect her life in Texas. The blues and greens of the Storm at Sea represent the colours in Hawaii where they started out".
This quilt was pieced on a sewing machine then hand quilted. Cotton fabric. Hether stated: "Last autumn's glorious colours was the inspiration for this quilt. I used a block called Tilted Log Cabin from the wonderful Lynne Edwards book Scrappy Quilts, and added a tilted border".
Hand pieced and quilted. Machine edged. Mixed fabrics. Jess stated: "I love these colours and the challenge of combining over 400 different fabrics into a harmonious quilt".
Nadezda stated "Classic patchwork, stitching combined. Cotton. Feather star".
