Michele's quilts

I had a wonderful visit at Michele's home in northern Kentucky.  Her home is filled with everything that I love:  Longaberger baskets, collectibles and lots of quilts. Here are photos of just a few of Michele's quilts.  She showed me a lot more than these, but I guess I was too busy looking and enjoying the show and tell and forgot to take photos.

If you are a quilter, Michele's home is filled with inspiration.  This is her Stars in the Garden quilt.  The pattern calls for 1/4", 3/8" or 1/2" hexagons so it can be framed.  Michele used 3/4" hexagons.  By using 3/4" hexagons, this quilt made a nice sized wall hanging.  This one is on my list of quilts to do,  I love how the black border frames the quilt and just makes the colors pop.

This quilt is Butterscotch Tart a pattern by Fig Tree and Co.  I really like this pattern and plan to try it soon.

While I like the Butterscotch Tart quilt above, this one was my favorite.  I love that fabric in the setting triangles.  

This is Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows, a pattern by Sue Daley.  I love the vibrant colors in this one.  

I don't know the name of this pattern, but it's made of quarter sections of Dresdens.  This one might be an Edyta Sitar pattern called Shooting Star.  

I love all of the red in Michele's quilts.

I have this Jo Morton border in this colorway and pink.  I still haven't used mine, but I love what Michele did with hers.   It makes a wonderful border with mitered corners.  

Here's another beautiful red quilt.  Again, she has used beautiful border fabric.

I haven't tried a lone star quilt yet.  After seeing those that Michele did, I just might try one.  

I love how the color appears to swirl in this one.

Here's another one.  The placement of the red just makes this one pop.  

I think this batik Lone Star is my favorite.  I love how the star colors are pulled from the border.  

I love this bow tie setting with the randomly placed snowflakes.  I'm pretty sure this is some of Edyta's fabric (Laundry Basket Quilts).   

Here's a photo of the two quilts hanging on the wall in the room where I slept.  Notice the bright, red quilt in the bottom corner of the photo.

Here is that red quilt.  The photo was taken on my porch.  I liked that quilt so much that Michele gave it to me.  When I was a teenager, my Grandmother made a quilt for me. Besides the one from my Grandmother this is the only quilt that I've ever received, and I am truly touched.  I just love it.   Thanks again Michele!

I'm a bit behind on my posting.  I still have another post or two from my trip, and I've been doing some sewing, too.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.
