If any of you know Amanda Herring http://www.thequiltedfish.typepad.com everything she does is over the top and fabulous. So of course, when she has her diet coke it’s not in a normal cup it’s in this really cute and adorable cup all decked out in jewels. Isn’t it perfect for a princess.
This is Janice Mickelson and she was asked by Flora (the sheriff) to talk about “What inspires her” Janice has a fabulous eye for color and design and she shares some of her quilts and ideas behind why she chooses the fabrics and patterns that she does.
This is a fun pinwheel quilt using a variety of medium toned fabrics. This would be a great quilt to use up your left overs.
This quilt shows the way medium and light fabrics can play against each other to create a 3 dimensional effect that is eye catching. This is a simple square in a square pattern and is also great for using left overs.
A cute baby quilt. Love the red.
Look how effective the snails trail block is going around cute Olivia the pig. The stripe border is great with the words on the bottom. Janice shared that she likes to pop in a gold stop border to break up the monotony of color. The gold makes other colors pop.
Simple basket quilt.Big blocks are easy to piece and the large baskets would be quick to applique. Very cute.
This is another basket quilt with large flowers appliqued. A great quilt to show off big bold prints in the baskets and border.
A simple pastel quilt with a log cabin effect in the blocks and a vine with flowers and leaves for a finishing touch on the border.
This quilt had a lot of intricate pieces. Lots of triangles and points. It is beautifully crafted.
This was a block of the month quilt we did in our quilt group many years ago. Paula McKinnley shared her many basket patterns and we made this row of baskets quilt.
This quilt is fabulous and was the shop hop quilt for Broadbents. It was to celebrate their theme and I think it is just gorgeous. The workmanship is spectacular. It was a joint effort by the employees but Lauel pieced everything together which is no easy feat since there were many hands helping which would mean many different seam allowances and block sizes.
Another fabulous quilt. As you can see I live in an area with beautiful quilters who are truly inspired by everything around them. I always come home from my quilt group “in the mood” for quilting.They inspire me to pick up a needle and thread and get behind my machine and just enjoy playing with my fabrics to create a masterpiece. I challenge everyone to give a homemade gift this Christmas. There is nothing better. Now get sewing!
