I noticed a couple reoccurring themes: zig zags and crosses. The Zig Zagged quilt is a design by Shea Henderson of Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio. It's a pattern you can find here.
As for the Cross Quilt, the blocks are a design by Carla of Lollyquiltz who will be our October 20 speaker at the Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild meeting. Isn't this yummy?
Carla has a Liberated Cross Block tutorial, in case you'd like to make one yourself.
Another quilt that caught my eye, that I think is so retro, is this clever spoons and forks quilt. How does a quilter come up with such an idea?!
"I've got to tear myself away from my sewing room to eat! I'm so hungry. Darn. I can't fix something to eat until I unload the dishwasher. I guess I'll start putting away utensils in the silverware basket. Hmm, look at that spoon. And check out that fork. Gosh, how would they look on a quilt? Forget about eating! I've got to get back to my sewing room!" (Yes, she's a thin quilter.)
This quilt was made by Tammy Vasser of AContentLife and Marmalade Fabrics. I love the simplicity of it.
Isn't this an interesting quilt? It's sort of a Greek key design. And those touches of teal blue are in just the right places.
The quilting really works with the linear quilt pattern.
I just like these quilts.
Bright, fresh, modern and fun! Just the way I am.... err, except perhaps for "fresh," and maybe "modern." A
