These next three pictures are the table runners that we finished in class. This is Dianne's.
This one is mine and uses "stack and whack" blocks. I think I am going to remove the two ends and make a quilt as I have quite a few additional blocks. I will vary the white around the edges though. (I may even take the individual stars apart from each other and vary the position of these white surrounded stars.)
And this is Betty's!
This and the following quilts were all done by Barbara Cline. This was her first foray into new design and is based on equilateral triangles.
This and the following were based on the traditional Lone Star pattern. She certainly did some unique things with this!!
This next group was versions of the stars that we did in class. When she broke them down, they didn't seem as complicated.
I can't remember the name of this last one but it isn't in any of her books and is a Virginia block (she is from the Shenandoah Valley and her family were the founders of Patchwork Plus although they no longer own it).
The rest of these quilts were part of Show and Tell. This is Dianne's Christmas wreath.
This is Bobbi's scrap quilt which I loved!!
These next three were just some of the neonatal quilts turned in.
The rest are more from Show and Tell.
I think this was a neonatal quilt as well.
This was a great example of recycling old ties. I have boxes of silk ties at home that I bought when they were a quarter at the thrift stores -- no more!!
This was my quilt which is now finished (although it wasn't in this picture as I hadn't sewn down the binding yet). It is called Ode to Albers as it shows the effect hopefully of colors on each other and how one color can look different depending upon its neighbors. Albers was an artist who did a lot of research on this.
