I had to take a photo from a side angle, and in trying to fix the camera distortion, I ended up losing part of the bottom and left side of the quilt, but I think you can see most of it. Several of Cathie Hoover's quilts included cows and I loved that--I suspect many of us from California's Central Valley are partial to cows!
Here's more eye candy:
I think the next one may be a Verna Mosquera pattern but the descriptive note didn't mention the designer. I started talking to another woman who said she belonged to a group and they'd all been working on this particular quilt pattern. Lovely!
This pattern is called Heart and Home by The Quilt Company. I first saw it some years ago and bought the patterns, but I have yet to make the quilt--as is true of so many patterns I love! It was great to see it made.
I always love to get photos of A Tisket, A Tasket, Anne Sutton's free online BOM from some years ago, whenever I see them made and hanging at quilt shows. It's another one I have yet to make, but I hope to some day! How about you? Did you save the patterns to make someday too, or did you, perhaps, get this one made?
I always love applique, and this one was pretty--I particularly love the watermelon and ant section!
The last two quilts are a couple of log cabin block quilts; the first one incorporates grandmother's fan blocks. The card said it was a Thimbleberries pattern but I don't recall it, do you? I wondered if it might be Thimble Blossoms? Anyone?
We loved this one and saw a very similar quilt at a local quilt shop. It's simple enough to use a barn raising setting for log cabin blocks and then add some center applique. I have an old quilt top made from Kansas Troubles fabric and the pattern was called Seeds of Time--do any of you remember that one? I've held off on finishing it because I wanted to add some applique. I think this may just give me an idea!
A friend who went with me said I'd taken so much time in the vendor booths, she finished a quilt while she waited for me. Ha!
The truth is that while she waited for me, she went into the country store/flea market/boutique room and found this quilt--a real steal at $35! Sheesh, why can't I find bargains like these?!
Finally, I wanted to show you this one. After the show, my friend and I went to lunch and talked about what we'd seen. We both mentioned loving this quilt, so by the time we finished lunch, we had made up our minds to rush back to the show to see if we could get the kit and/or pattern.
I had already purchased some of the fabrics elsewhere, so I didn't want to buy the kit, but I DID purchase the book that contains the pattern, Screen Shot. The book is Season Premier and it was published specially in connection with a Southern California Shop Hop. There are four different patterns in the book that can be made in different sizes, and this was one of them. Clicking on the name above will take you to a source for the book. The kit, however, was offered by Monica's Quilt and Bead Creations in Palm Desert. The don't have an online store, but they do have a website and you can call them if you're interested in the kit--I'm sure they'll carry the book as well. My friend bought the kit, and I came home and ordered the additional fabric I needed--the vendor didn't have the fabrics separately, just the kits. The fabric line is Nevermore.
