More quilt inspiration with a day out to Wellington today. With my current quilt top nearing completion, it doesn't hurt to add some more ideas to my list of candidates for "what will I make next?"... This time I attended the Wellington Coast to Coast day out for quilters. There was shopping, and coffee, a guest speaker, a show of quilts and the company of a lovely friend. The sun shone as well - all in all a good day out. I arrived early enough to check out the shopping first and immediately spied some new stencils that had to come home with me
and happily, I also got a couple of extra pieces of fabric that will make my last few blocks a little more special.
The bottom left square is my base feature fabric. Also found a lovely variegated thread that might be useful in the quilting.
The quilt show and tell section was not large, but I still found quilts to inspire. Unfortunately I haven't been able to credit the makers of these - and some are just tops so even if you click on the photo to see them larger, you won't get to see quilting details. Hope you enjoy seeing these :
Below : an old blanket with recycled wool fabrics appliqued on top. A lovely simple idea that looked so effective and snuggly.
Below : a really fun abstract block challenge quilt made by a group. I've also added a detail of this one
Below : lovely masculine graphic quilt - I think designed and made by a man (quilted by his wife)
Hope there's something there to inspire you...I am hoping for quilt stitching time tomorrow. How about you?
