Right now there is an online Trunk Show going on and I thought I'd take part.
You can view the Trunk Show here at Whims and Fancies....or click on the "Trunk Full of Quilts" button on the right side of the screen.
I haven't had too many finishes this year, but that's not unusual. Since most of my quilts are hand-appliqued they tend to take a couple of years to complete....plus there is the fact that I have way too many projects on the go!!!
The two quilts I am showcasing for the Trunk Show are ones that I had a lot of fun with and don't mind talking about them yet again.
Moonlight Thru' the Trees
The first is a group project where each person chose their theme and everyone contributed a block to the quilt.
My theme was neutrals. I had always wanted to do a neutral quilt, but was surprised at the difficulty I had with it...until an unusual brainstorm came upon me.
You can read about the brainstorm here, and see other posts about it here and here.
I love how my neutral quilt turned out. I am currently redecorating a guest room and this quilt will hang there.
My Flower Garden quilt was a quilt that took approximately two years to applique and three weeks to quilt, although there were many days I "ran away" from the quilting, so maybe I could have had it done in two weeks.
This is my second Kim McLean quilt and I've enjoyed both of them.
Check out this post to read more about my recent completion of my Flower Garden quilt.
I'm including a picture of My Circles quilt. It was actually completed last year but I wish stroke my ego a bit and share a picture of my quilt hanging this year at Quilt Canada in the National Juried Show, where it won a second-place ribbon in it's category.
This is truly a highlight in my quilting life! Thanks for indulging me!!
I hope you'll take time to sit with a cup of coffee or tea and visit with the many bloggers who are sure to take part in this virtual trunk show.....I know I will!
