Because the York quilters hold their show ever two years, they have many quilts to display. This week I will share more of what we saw.
As always, whenever we go to a quilt show I am amazed be the variety of patterns the quilters use as well as their choice of colors for the quilts. Many times colors that I would not normally think would work together make beautiful quilts.
This quilt uses basically two colors.The 14 blocks surrounding the center square are made up of 7 blocks duplicated. Can you find the 7 pairs?
This is a stack-n-whack quilt. The same fabric was used in each block. By lining up the fabric and cutting the exact pattern from it, when the pieces are sewn together each block has a different look.
These four I just liked.
This was an unusual pattern. I have seen this used in boarders but not as the body of the quilt itself.
Kathy an I had a discussion about this one. We both agree it is a snake, bu to be the head in in the center and the body coils around it. To Kathy the tail in in the center with the head in the upper right hand corner. What do you think?
Sometimes quilts are made for a cause. Here is a walk for a cure quilt. I just love the shoes on each animal.
The teacher in me couldn’t resist these apples.
Here are a couple more just because.
Love the giraffe drooling on this one.
I thought this was neat. The quilter sewed squares together, then paced a clam shell template on top of them, cut them out, and sewed them together.
Finally, do you see the angel?
That’s it from York. Two years until they hold their next show. I know we will be there. Next show will be in Hershey. It will be in July. We, along with my trusty camera, will be there.
