First Friday at Quiltworks

After I was asked to be the featured quilter at Quiltworks I realized how important it is to GO to those events! I was worried nobody would show up to see my quilts and I want every first Friday quilter to feel that their event is a special one (which it is!)
Last Friday was the first Friday of May and Janie Adams was the featured quilter.  Our quilts are miles apart as far as style, but I did really enjoy the show.  I hope you enjoy it, as well.

Where did that whimsical deer come from and how on earth did she decide to put it in her quilt?! Fantastic!!


Inspired by Freddy Moran


I love that it was machine appliqued

ZigZag border fabric! Not pieced!! How cool!!




Dave and Marilyn are such fun hosts!

  2. Thanks for sharing these amazing quilts. I especially liked the fairy tree quilt, I'm off to Google Freddy Moran now. The Internet quilt community is wonderful for opening up so much that's new and unknown to me :-)

  6. Oh My...Oh My....her quilts are fabulous!! Those spiky American Beauty ones still have a dainty soft type look to them even though they are colorful. I think the softer sashings and background she uses helps with that look!!

    I Love these!! I just can't stop looking at them! Thanks Lori!!!

  8. Thanks for sharing these pretty Quilts. What a great Idea for the quilt shop to do each month. How Lucky you are to go and share each other's quilts. I liked the deer in there too. It's so fun to HIDE a fussy cut flower, animal, etc in the blocks. Like Bonnie Hunter's Winnie the Pooh in her Sister's Choice.

  19. Love her quilts - they are just so free flowing and fun! I agree its important to support our featured quilters. I attended a woman's show a couple weeks ago, and she was pleased as punch to see me there. Think I made a new friend!
