It's been a big week for Guatemala Bound! Four quilts were finished, an older quilt donated, and I'm showing photos of one of the first finished quilts. Above are two black white and red log cabins in slightly different layouts. These are the "half" log cabins that only have strips sewn on two sides.
Below are two more "Block-and-Lattice" quilts, again done in opposite fabrics: one flower block with plaid lattice and one visa versa. See previous Block-and-Lattice quilts here. This is a really simple quilt, but I like it alot. It's a great way to use up smaller scraps.
I used another Leah Day design in the quilting on this one.
Another Housetop quilt is finished. See previous Housetops here.
And last, here's an older donated quilt.
We're getting pretty close to the goal of 80 quilts. I probably have 80 tops, but I have quite a bit of machine quilting and finishing left to do. Wow! Thanks again to all of you who have contributed. It's amazing to have accomplished so much in a year and a half!
So, the whole process of making the quilts and submitting for the Color Improvisations show was Top Secret. But now that the show is open, we have permission to show the quilts. So, here are my three quilts that are in the show. All photos are by Mark Frey.
I just returned from Germany where I attended the opening of Color Improvisations. What a fabulous trip! Twenty-two of the twenty-six artists in the show came for the opening. The facility is beautiful and the opening was well-attended. There are quite a few photos of the event and the quilts on Flickr. Also Terry Jarrard-Dimond has quite a few photos on her blog.
The show was in this beautiful area one floor above the ground level.
Here are two of my quilts. Tumble is on the left and Canopy on the right.
