This eucalyptus beauty is also Norah McMeeking's work but totally different from her tile-inspired designs.
There were a lot of small quilted works and one of my favorites was a challenge that a satellite group of the guild created using an ordinary object--in this case, a chair.
These were so inventive!
One of my favorites! They are small, only about the size of a sheet of copy paper. Charming, all of them.
Ginkgo leaves are one of my favorite organic shapes. This was another small quilt, wonderful shading going on here.
Because this is a Coastal guild after all, there were many sea themed quilts.
The artist here is Roxanne Barbieri, owner of a great quilt shop called The Treasure Hunt. She does a lot of whimsical original designs. I can guess that she is always doodling on paper. This is called "Be Careful What You Fish For".
This reads : "If fishes were horses". So cute!
Scenes of Santa Barbara.
Sailboats and starfish.
And icons of San Buenaventura, my city, commonly called Ventura. Like Santa Barbara, we are a California Mission town, founded by Spanish Missionaries in the late 1700's. Hope you enjoyed the variety of quilts as much as I did. I'm planning to attend the next guild meeting as a guest and am seriously thinking about joining. These ladies appear to have a lot of fun with their craft!
