These were the quilts that I really liked at the Stitch and Craft Show - the quilts that I would love to have made myself. I just love these patterns and fabrics and colours. This was called "Klimt Curves" by Janice Gunner, and was inspired by a Makower fabric printed with Klimt like designs. This was based on a "Curves in the Cabin" technique - and was machine pieced and machine quilted.....
.....another quilt by Janice Gunner, called "Papaver" and was made using the "Log Cabin with Attitude" technique, again machine pieced and quilted.....
....."Sunset" by Diane Giles - Diane wrote that these colours were inspired by sunsets. This quilt comprises of five panels, which were made for her final project when studying for the City and Guilds Patchwork and Quilting Level 3 certificate with Janice Gunner.....
....."Free Spirit" by Jane Turner - made for Marsh Quilters' exhibition challenge 2011, and features raw edge applique with machine quilting and some hand embroidery.....
.....and another quilt by Jane Turner, this one is called "Snail Trail" and was a scrap quilt for Project Linus. It was machine pieced and quilted, and the snail trail blocks were foundation pieced. I feel really inspired now to get creative and make one of Janice's designs! Now, I'm sure I have her book, called "Liberating Log Cabin: Exploring Contemporary Textile Techniques" on my bookself somewhere - wonder if I've got enough fabric in my stash to makwe one of these quilts??!! ....
