Inspirational Sunday (8) - via QuiltConWest 2016

Hello Everyone!  Today, I thought I would share some quilts from the Minimalist Design category.

First up is one of my favorites, called "Sunburst" by Yvonne Fuchs of Tehachapi, California.  It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.

This quilt was inspired by one of the design sparks in the QDAD (Quilt Design a Day) group on Facebook.

Next up is "You and Me" by Kristyn McCoy of Ilderton, Ontario, Canada.  It is machine pieced and machine quilted on a frame.

Not only did she use last year's Pantone color of the year (Marsala), she learned this quilting technique from a class with Krista Withers at QuiltCon 2015.  Since I was about to take Krista's class that day, I wanted to have an example of what her technique looked like executed by someone else.

This quilt sold for $400.

Next up, "Thoroughly Modern Jacquie" by Katherine Jones of Chigwell, Tasmania Australia.  It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.

Take a look at how perfect that straight line quilting is!

"Antlers" by Nancy Purvis of Garner, North Carolina is next.  It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.  It also uses the wrong side of the fabrics to make the antlers look folded.

Finally for today, "Bubble Gum" by Margaret (Kathy) Greer of Port Angeles, Washington.  It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.  All circles were created using reverse applique with freezer paper.

  3. I've been enjoying seeing these quilts! It's nice that you've spaced them out, so we can enjoy them separate from all the overwhelming amount of photos that happened during the event.

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

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!
