Monday Morning Musings

Here's what I'm working on this morning:




Lighting can make a lot of difference in pictures.  These are both pictures of the same block.  A photographer I am not.  This is part of the applique project, Birds of a Feather, which is almost finished.

Last Thursday I went to the big quilt show in Hampton, the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival XXV.  I want to share just one quilt from the show.  It's what I call a "tile" quilt, and I am interested in making one. Tile quilts have white "grout" between the pieces, and I think they look so interesting.  Plus it had old buttons too!  I hope you enjoy these pictures of just one of many beautiful quilts in the show:








Monday mornings is time to look at all the design wall pictures at Judy Liquidara's blog.  (Here)

Your appliqué is lovely. You do very nice work. Thanks for sharing the tile quilt. It really is interesting. The buttons are a nice touch.

Hi Judy
Your block is so nice.
Thanks for sharing the A is for Appliqué quilt at the show. It is such a creative quilt in so many ways. I had to zoom in on the picture to see what I was really looking at. I could see myself doing maybe one tile for a wall hanging in this style. Thanks for sharing.

Your photos are just fine... you do beautiful applique!
Interesting tile quilt! I love how creatively they use the buttons. They show very well on the quilt... better than in a big glass jar!

I like your fabric choices in the bird block. Lots of interest in the designs.
