On Saturday, I went to the Sew Charming Quilts show in Grand Haven with my friend Gayle. The Lighthouse Quilt Guild produced a very nice show. As I was walking around admiring their work, I couldn't help but think of some of the people I know only in cyberspace.
This pretty Delectable Mountains quilt by Sally Sundstrom reminded me of Micki's idea for a Scrappy Mountains Majesty swap being discussed on the Scrappy Quilts forum.
Flowers in the Night by Jean Stordahl uses many black on black squares–I thought Kate would appreciate this quilter's collection of black fabrics.
Spring Spectacular, by Jackie Bailey, is a Piece of Cake pattern with fried egg flowers in the border which reminded me of this month's lotto block, Purple Posy. I thought the lotto regulars would enjoy it.
I thought the Brown Bag Challenge was a neat idea and one that one of the swap hostesses on the Quilting forum or the Doll Quilt Swap Moms might take and run with it. (I took a photo of the guidelines, if you want to check it out).
Bobbie Vruggink's quilt, Whooters made me think of Krista and her hunt for owls in Waynesville during the Blue Ridge Quiltfest last March.
Pink Embroidered Twelve-patch is made from vintage embroidered squares purchased at an estate sale by Judy Schippers. I thought Debra would recognize a kindred creative spirit--rescuing old blocks and making a beautiful quilt from them.
Marchia Shoemaker's 3-D Bowtie Quilt, made from orphan blocks left over from making a larger quilt, brought to mind Finn's Orphan Train effort.
