Last of the quilt eye-candy

Step right up folks, plenty of room for everyone to get a look!
This quilt had all the fabrics from Collections for a Cause and some of the other lines used in the Greenpiece BOM I am doing.  Also one of the fabrics in Erica's quilt.  I love all of them!

Isn't this optical illusion fantastic!

More pretty applique.  It looks like the quilter had a little trouble with the center flying goose on the bottom there...I'm sure that would be my problem too!

Absolutely gorgeous and complex medallion quilt.  I have seen this pattern somewhere--probably on the cover of a quilt magazine!

A 12 days of Christmas quilt, so clever and jaunty. 

Look at the milk spilling out of her buckets, and the piper!  The action in this quilt was great.

The pears were my favorite crackle fabric but you can't see it very well in this photo.  The color is off because the lighting was not very good in the fairgrounds building.

This was a beautiful small quilt in broderie perse.  I loved the cross blocks surrounding it and the flying geese.

The quilter stated that this was a class where they made 16 identical blocks and just by switching and turning them, got these fantastic layouts. Loved the colors she used.  Intriguing!

Friendship stars and spools, it looks like to me. Love the scrappy everything!

These were all William Morris prints.  So simple and effective.  Sorry my shot of the entire quilt was too blurry and poor to share.  This was a large quilt.

The Quilter's Psalm.  Hilarious!  I had not seen this before but got a chuckle out of it. Hopefully you can click on this to make it more readable.

Okay, that's all there is, there isn't any more!

Happy Mother's Day to all.  We'll be having our annual Mother's Day brunch here--I think there will be 21 of us, a regular sized gathering for our big family!

100% agreement. I like them all, but especially the medallion Q, the broderie perse project, and that quilter's psalm. Priceless!
Thanks for sharing, and Happy Mother's Day.
