Keuka Quilters “Get the Point”

6 10 2013

I am in Dundee, New York this weekend visiting my friend Marie and sharing quilts with her guild, the Keuka Quilters.

Saturday’s workshop was “Get the Point?,” a block design inspired by Carrie Nelson’s block #291 in Volume 3 of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks from Today’s Top Designers. You can see my finished quilt here on my Workshops/Lectures page.

Would you like to see some of the fabric and setting combinations?

Aren’t Denise’s batiks wonderful?

Kim cut some of her previously worn dresses into 2 1/2″ strips for her quilt.

Marie chose teal as the background fabric, and we arranged the blocks in a “hanging diamond” configuration.

Diana’s background is green batik which she paired with light prints.

Elly had fun mixing and matching her batik blocks.

I really enjoyed meeting the workshop participants and look forward to sharing my lecture “It’s Not About the Quilts” with them on Monday evening.
