I do want to share some quilts from the Internations Quilt Festival Cincinnati. If you get a chance to go it is so nice!
These are tiny Hex's appliqued to make the flowers. Something I will never do it's too tiny.
Here are some flowers that both my DGT and I loved they were appliqued, and painted I think.
Even htis Herron is appliqued in more traditional way, but I think there was still some painting on it.
I was these on Thursday and when I saw them on Saturday I realized that they had taken 4 sunflowers and cut them into 4ths and sewn them back together! OH MY. the beading and decortations on each flower is consistiant in all 4!
I love the little bird on top of the flower.
This is just a typical applique flowers. but I loved it. I wish my own garden was so nice.
Again my favorites are the appliques.... but those are also the ones I don't like to make!
these 2 birds are so similar and yet so different.
DGT didn't get another shot of this rambling rose. At least I haven't found it yet in the 137 pics she took. It's done over a pieced quilt! that's a lot of work!
That's all for now. I lot of pics and hopefully it will spur my imagination on.
