Old Fashioned Bed Turning

My first night in Houston I was invited to an impromptu old fashioned bed turning in Linda and Marie's hotel room. I met Linda Collins in NYC for the Infinite Variety quilt show and we've followed each other with social media for some time now. It really didn't feel like it had been 5 years since that show!
Funny, Linda is a big fan of madder in quilts and I got to see such a variety! It was great after seeing the fun Quilters Madder quilts.


 So many madders! I loved that mint green, which seems out of place in our reproduction fabric world.
                               
 Time for a close up. Charming and so humble!
 What a fun block and great setting!



 I'm a fan of the half blocks too!
 Here is Linda pointing out so many charming features.
 More madders!
 Good way to use up some orphan blocks and make your quilt bigger.








Thank you Linda for your generosity and time to show us your quilts up close and personal!

  9. Wow! What a collection, each is more interesting and beautiful than the next. Great photos, really enjoy the close ups. Doesn t that rather ''wonky'' elongated Stars look modern! Thanks for a great show, Lori.

  14. I like the Courthouse Steps quilt with all the madders. If I made one similar, I would probably be the only one in my family who would like it.
    After seeing the antique quilts, were you inspired to do anything similar?
    And it does not hardly seem possible that it is been five years since the red & white exhibition.

  21. What fun! I love looking at old quilts and all of the individual fabrics. I'm always amazed at how many have been reproduced, and usually see a few that I WISH someone would reproduce! Thanks for sharing.
