As per my usual I used mainly vintage and Lecien fabrics to make the samples. Above this teakettle is made with a small chunk of a vintage feed sack. Speaking of Lecien, American Quilting just got in a HUGE box full of beautiful Lecien goodies. If you live locally you have to go to the store to check it out (tell them I sent you ;-)). I've want to go back this week and check it out since it was still packaged when I was there last week.
I used some of Lori's vintage fabric for the roof in the lower right hand of the photo. Lori was nice enough to share . Thanks Lori! It works perfectly in this quilt.
I really LOVE this Lecien strawberry print from the 30's line of fabric. And I had the quilt machine quilted with strawberries from Eagle Mountain Quilting. I was so happy with how it all came together. It may just might be my favorite sample quilt yet.I was so incredibly lucky to get this strawberry basket print for the border. It's like a memory of summer strawberries.
This latest sample quilt was taken to American Quilting in Orem Utah as a sample for a class I'll be teaching at American Quilting's retreat in Feb. 2010. The retreat will be held at a hotel in Provo, Utah. For details on how to attend contact Amy at American Quilting.
I took this sample to The Quilting Cottage in American Fork, Utah. I love the pink, red and turquoise. Another Lecien creation.
And this sample was taken to Material Girls in South Jordan, Utah. More strawberry and Lecien loveliness. Eagle Mountain Quilting stitched strawberries into this quilt, too.
I love all 3 quilts. It is really hard to pick a favorite. I'll also be teaching this same quilt along with my Mixed Bag to Quilt pattern in June, 2010 at the Panguitch, Utah Quiltwalk. I'm sure both retreats have spots open and both of the retreats will be fabulous fun. I hope to see some of you there.
