I liked the way the blocks of color pop out in the above one. Had I designed it, I would have reversed them, based on what I have learned thus far about colors, setting light 'stars' on a dark background, but this works well. I'm surprised at how the dark colors draw the eye, even though they do recede as they should. The basketweave effect of the white strips is nice.
This is the last one, and I just took the picture because I was fascinated with the edge treatment. It's a flannel quilt, so I'll bet it is very warm and comforting in this climate.
I'm not a quilter, obviously, so I'm sure I've missed what I should be seeing. Perhaps these are common quilt patterns, I don't know. If so, the show was maybe nothing special. I enjoyed both shows, and liked talking to the quilters.
Isn't it funny to post this now, when the U.S. is in the grip of a heat wave? I may be the only knit blogger in the country who looks at the quilts and thinks how warm and snuggly they might be. But it is 47 degrees Farenheit in these mountains yesterday morning when I started this post, and and is barely 60 this morning--I get chilly. (nana na na boo boo!)Blocking of the wrap will happen today! Pictures of it soon.
