Inspirational Sunday (6) - via QuiltConWest 2016

Welcome back!  Today, we continue with the Modern Traditionalism category.


First up is "Etude" by Bailey Pike of Pittsburg, Kansas.  It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.

Check out that tight matchstick quilting!

I liked how quiet this quilt was.

Next is "Churning" by Jean Larson of Chattanooga, Tennessee.  It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.

I can't believe that this is just a churn dash block!  Can you see it?

I also really like the wavy line quilting.  I learned how to do this in Jacquie Gering's first Craftsy class, "Creative Quilting With Your Walking Foot" (***affiliate link).  I still highly recommend it and her follow up class, "Next Steps with Your Walking Foot" (***affiliate link), which is currently on sale!

Speaking of Jacquie Gering, this next one is called, "Twisted Tulips" by Jacquie Gering of Kansas City, Missouri.  It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.

Here's one that utilizes my favorite quilting motif, spirals!  It is called "#ImOnABoat" by Allison Chambers of San Antonio, Texas.  It is machine pieced and machine quilted on a frame.

She used some of my other favorite designs too, like the wood grain for the hull of the boat.

Finally for today, one of my favorites in the group.  This one is called "Tree of Drunks" by Dorie Schwarz of Mason, Michigan.  It is machine pieced and machine quilted on a frame.

This quilt was inspired by the Temperance movement.  I love how simple the quilting is, yet very modern looking!

That's all for today!  I think I have one more week of Modern Traditionalism including the winner of the category and the People Choice pick, then we will move on to another category.


Thanks for reading today!

  1. I've been sitting here staring at "Churning" - such a clever use of colour. At first glance it looks like a grid and then when you look some more you realise that it is Churn Dash blocks.
    The "Tree of Drunks" is quite clever too, using part of a Drunkard's Path block in the design. Thanks for showing these quilts, I really appreciate it.

  4. This a great selection Jen. I loved the first one, Etude, then I adored the second, Churning, so clever. I am a massive fan of Jacquie Gering, I have all three of her classes, and the quilting on Film on a Boat is so clever, and I really like Tree of Drunks too. I really look forward to your Sunday posts. Thank you.
    With smiles

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
