First Friday at QuiltWorks

This is from the Quiltworks site about last Friday's First Friday event:

"Mini-Groups" show, with quilts from Book Scissors Quilt, from the novel "Eligible", Founding Fibers Art Quilt Group, "Portrait Challenge", Central Oregon Modern Quilt Guild's, "Cool Color Challenge" plus a special exhibit of antique quilts owned by Catherine Anderson.  

I noticed with most of the cool color quilts by the Modern Quilt Guild it was all about the quilting. 

  Inspired by a class with Gwen Marston.
I'm a fan of Kristen's work and this one was, imho, the best of the bunch. 

 Some of the "Portrait" challenge. 

 And a cute one from the book challenge.
 I saved a few of the antique ones for last. I have some EEP papers in the diamond shape and am thinking about trying something like this! (gasp!) I haven't jumped on that bandwagon yet, but am only thinking about it at this stage.

This was called Daffy Daisy. 

Hope you enjoyed the show! Hope your week starts off wonderful! Happy Monday!


  1. Now that I have been to this shop I can envision the display really well. : )
    The undulating lines on the fourth quilt are a beautiful effect. When I look at the quilting on the third quilt I think it would make me crazy to do all of that pebbling.
    I'm trying to figure out how to get OFF the EPP bandwagon, but I want to finish my little project first.
    That last quilt is my favorite. It is on the short list in my bucket.
