My Quilt Show Favorites

There were many wonderful quilts in our show. One great thing our guild does is photograph all the quilts as they come in. Then we sell the CD of photos so we can all remember what we saw.

Here are two quilts that I think explode with creativity:

The first is by Jennifer Dixon-Perkins, a new member of our guild. It's titled Doni Doesn't Know It's Here. Jennifer will soon surprise her daughter, who loves these characters (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends), with this quilt. Jennifer explored different avenues for applique and drawing with thread. I love the raw edges and the wacky modern fabrics she used.....I predict Doni will love the quilt.

The other is by Terry Thompson, longtime creative artist. She made it for her granddaughter Maddy in 1996. She wanted to make a different kind of Noah's Ark quilt and was inspired by the fabric she found. Aren't these bold fabric choices!
