Anyway, the format was that they all were given fabric each month which was a variety of very similar 30's reproduction type prints, a closely packed design. They could pick whatever pattern they wished to use rather than be locked into what the shop had chosen. I love 30's prints but working in one fabric line is not easy for ME to do, Normally that means little variety with just a diference in colorway but they did not seem to have trouble. I know some of the ladies had to have supplemented what they were given to squeeze this big of a top.
Okay, I'll hush up and just point out two that I know belong to some friends or if I know the design/designer!
These look a lot like Darcy Ashton's Claire's Cats--there are two books. I have some downloaded from the net some time back so that might be why I think I have some of the patterns, LOL
This one is pretty neat and makes the pinwheels so much more interesting, IMHO
The sashing gives this one a neat focus away from the simple Single Irish Chain
This one is quite striking!
This one as well---Chaining Blocks with Alternating Stars and not easily pieced ones either!
Classic! Arkansas Snowflake is one name for this
This is Lois' quilt. A friend of her daughter has laid claim to it and it was pinned at the last meeting. I like the block pattern and love the embroidered kitty at center.
This one seemed to be telling a story
This one (I think) is variations of either Disappearing Hour Glass or Pinwheel. I would have to check the Missour Star Quilt Company you tube videos. They are some blocks I would like to try!
This belongs to my friend Ada. The block at center is a Card trick block and then she copied decks of cards and applied the image to cloth. Clever girl!
Well done Sampler
Interesting 9 patch variations
this might have been a first quilt? Can't remember now
I am fairly sure that most of these blocks are from the Eleanor Burns/Quilt in a Day Egg Money Quilts
It does not look like they let me upload all the pictures or else I forgot Margarita's so looks like another post will be coming.
