Airing of the Quilts Show

I showed you a couple of Bill's quilts he had on display, but I neglected to show you these beauties.

What a special quilt! Look at the photo below.

I love how they changed it. 

Grand Illusion. designed by Bonnie Hunter. I sent her a text photo while I was there. She is always thrilled to see quilts that others have made from her designs.
I thought this was unusual, but whimsical and modern too.

 Of course, I love seeing wool work.
These were more from Bill's collection. If I remember correctly his mom purchased this and held onto for years and only recently given it to the Bill Volckening collection. :)

 This one was amazing. I'd like to examine it closer and see exactly how they put it together.

I love this tree!!

 One of his latest acquisitions. Hoot -Hoot!
On our way to the coast we saw this barn with quilt blocks! 

Have a fantastic weekend!


  1. Thanks for sharing these amazing quilts! Love the quilt barn too.

  2. Thanks for the great quilt show! I am in love with those owls! They are a hoot.

  3. Thanks for the quilt show. Do you think the amazing quilt (picture 9) is made of different fabrics or is it a psychedelic sampler quilt that is drawn and that you color as you wish?

    1. A 1970's crazy quilt and looks like it was amazingly difficult to put together!! And it is made with all different fabrics.
      I hope you see this Carole, because you are no-reply and I have no email address.

  4. For the first quilt, I would call "the revisited quilt !" !!! I love the one with the trees......
    Thank you so much for sharing Lori .
    Have a nice chocolate weekend !
    Happy Easter !

  5. Thank you for sharing more of these Beauties! I love how they re-set those thrift store blocks. Much more Whimsical. Happy Easter weekend!

  6. I'm fascinated by the reworking of that first quilt. It would never have occurred to me to do such a thing, but how delightful it looks!
    Really love the tree quilt, but there are so many interesting quilts here.

  7. Love that Tree of Life! Thanks for sharing, there was such creativeness in the showing. You must have loved every minute.

  8. That crazy quilt intrigues me. I am wondering what are the black lines? I think this must qualify as an "Everything but the kitchen sink" quilt!

  9. Well, I had to wipe the drool off my keyboard before I could comment! LOVE the tree and the one above it. How beautiful

  10. I love that barn!!~
    thanks for sharing more of bills awesome quilts!!

  11. I agree, the Tree Quilt is gorgeous. I also fell in love with the Fort Quilt that had Grandmother's Flower blocks in the front. Great eye candy for the weekend! Thank you!

  12. Looks like it was a great time!

  13. Great quilts, Lori. Thank you.

  14. I like the pine tree quilt. Those blocks look easier to piece than the block I just made. And I like that it has a few triangles in red.

    The floral quilt on black is a special looking wall quilt. I assume it is wool on cotton.

  15. Thank you so much for the tour of the show! I usually prefer cotton quilts, but that wool garden was so dramatic!

  16. Oh I loved these! That first quilt is so interesting. I love what they made from the thrift store find. I also love those ginormous circles with the hearts inside :0) Great tree of life quilt too!
