On Saturday, June 2, we attended the Wine Country Quilt Show, sponsored by the local quilt guilds from Petaluma, Sonoma and Santa Rosa, California. Join us for a look at the lovely work produced by these talented groups of quilters !
Cindy writes, "The 17 bright fabrics were fat quarters given to me as a gift for my second term as president for the guild, hence the name I gave the quilt." We think that the log cabin inner border adds such a vibrant, contemporary look to this popular traditional pattern.
Rob's Quilt by Kathy Martin
Kathy made this quilt for her son Rob, using the New York Beauty pattern of points arrayed in circular arcs. Her skillful use of light and medium shades of neutral hues gives this quilt interesting depth and shadows. Notice how Kathy has appliqued sprays of leaves that follow the circular shape of the blocks for extra visual interest.
This quilt features a very outsdoorsy, woodlands theme, where neutral tone courthouse steps blocks are alternated with silhouettes of wildlife. Patricia says that the animal blocks are cut from a fabric panel with soft black Minky fabric as the backing.

Sunflower by Mary Flynn
Mary writes that this quilt is the result of a class with Melinda Bula. The warm hues of the giant flower look radiant against the muted spruce green leaves that extend into the border. Mary also did an excellent job in quilting this eye-catching, cheerful art quilt.
