My Own Infinite Variety

One year ago this month I made my first trip to New York City with my daughter to see the Infinite Variety quilt exhibit. I was thinking about that a lot today while getting caught up on my blocks.
It was an amazing trip from start to finish.

  2. Your blocks look wonderful together. It will be interesting to see the suggested layout in the next instalment. I see you decided to switch out the compass block.. it looked very complicated

  4. WOW!! Have we made that many blocks? Mine are in a bag and haven't laid them all out to admire my work. Is the feathered star in that collection? VBG. Yours look great! Wish I could've been there last year, too!

  7. I have finally succumbed to temptation and downloaded all the Just Takes 2 blocks published this far. The red & white is so appealing and your blocks look great. Love that you have used different small scale red prints!

  8. I see you have the latest blocks finished. Did you make that circle by hand? I have been putting if off.

  9. Lori- these look fabulous!!! I haven't fallen prey to the red and white movement, maybe it was a good thing I didn't see the exhibit in person. I have enough things in the que for me. Great job!

  12. These blocks are awesome, Lori! And I've been thinking about that R@W show a lot lately.....it's still amazing to me what we saw! It was incredible......a once in a lifetime experience!

    I just wish I had met you before that, so we could have hung out! In NYC! Holy cow! Woohoo! lol

  13. So nice to see you still enjoying the trip! What a nice way to re-live it with some red and white stitching.
    Love the grouping of them - like the exhibit - the sum of the whole - and each alone special.

  14. Beautiful blocks Lori, they look great all laid out. Your feathered star is gorgeous and I like what you did for the Mariner's Compass. I was thinking of replacing it with a Dresden plate. GMTA Congrats on keeping up!

  17. I know you have been frustrated with the instructions, but I think these look really good, whatever mental anguish you have suffered to bring them about. : )
    I am really curious to see how the setting of these blocks plays out.

  21. What a memory quilt that will be!
    Just wishing it was this time last year building up to the excitement of going to NYC seeing all those red and white and meeting everyone.

  26. That was such an amazing show - inspirational and life changing - and your tribute does it credit. Just lovely.

  27. I can't believe that it has been a year already. The pictures of that show were fantastic. As are your red and white blocks.

  28. Love it, I see your own choices on some blocks, the "wagon wheel" looking one is a great addition, there was a few quilts with that block in them. Can you believe it's been a year???

    ReplyDelete
  29. They look so cool together!

  30. You're going to have a really special quilt, Lori. Good work!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wish I had gone too! But you are making your own exhibition in miniature. It is coming along very nicely Lori!

  32. You'd chosen a lovely way to commemorate your trip to the Infinite Variety show. Your blocks look like they've been great fun to make. Same colors, but look at the variety! I'm sure you've been tackling them with gusto (ooh -- maybe that's the wrong word. Did you attack them with gusto?)
    I'm saving the patterns but no chance to start my own yet. Maybe later.

  33. It was so fun to see you here last year.
    I love your project, it looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Your Infinite Variety is coming along really well.

    I see you've changed up the feather star and compass block. I am curious how the layout will be. I may just piece those blocks that Ive made and see if I can make a table topper instead!

    I just finished a feather star block too but in blue and white instead.

  35. Wow!!! What a stunning collection !I love the variety of red fabrics you are using in your blogs. I have been downloading the instructions, but haven't sewn any yet. I really want to try making the feathered star. Yours is amazing!!!!!!!
    Congratulations on lots of beautiful blocks!

  36. I have definitely fallen by the wayside for the red and white quilts but it's so nice to see your blocks. I'm dying to see how the first lot are going to be put together.
