Ha Cha Cha! Color!
After last week's white whole cloth quilts, you might want to put your sunglasses on for these next two quilts, 'cause they are COLORFUL!
This first one is called "Fiesta Mexico" by Karen Kay Buckley of Carlisle, PA and quilted by Renae Haddadin. These are Karen's original applique designs, and she used bright colors to go with the Mexican theme. Likewise, Renae used a variety of thread and quilting designs to really play up the festive theme.
The quilting is really amazing! I could have taken a dozen pictures of what she did. Here's one close up for you to drool over.
This next one is called "Tucker's Tulips" by Susan H. Garman of Friendswood, TX. It was inspired by young Serena Tucker's 1853 red and green wedding quilt. Susan modified her tulip vase block and chose wildly different colors - cheddar and teal.
Because of the colors, I think this one even has a south of the border feel to it too, you?
Next week, we will dabble into the world of tiny little pieces.
