More summery quilts

Here are some more cheery quilts which remind us of the great outdoors on a sunny June day !  These are from the Flying Needles Quilt Guild Show on June 1, 2013, in Woodland, California. 

More Orange Please, 47 x54, by Olivia Loop

Olivia writes, "These are not colors I normally use, so I bought this as a kit. It was fun to make and is fun to look at. The pattern is from Quilt Soup." We think the upbeat polka dot fabric really adds "pizazz" to this happy pattern.

Les Tournesols, 22 x 28, by Carole Pirrucello

"Les Tournesols" are the French words for "The Sunflowers."  Carole tells us,  "This wall hanging used fabrics from the 2011 River City Quilters' Guild Fabric Challenge. Techniques include  applique, machine piecing, and free motion quilting with rayon and metallic threads. " Carole did a great job placing the flowers with their split complementary colors against the bright white garden trellis for contrast.  

Floral Delight, 50 x50, by Lana Hanney

Lana notes,  "I saw a quilt like this hanging in a Clovis, California quilt shop and loved it. I came home and made this smaller version of the original. It is hand appliqued and machine quilted. " The strong geometric inner border really helps to focus the eye on the very pretty floral motifs.

Ocean Waves, 100 x102, by Christine Williams

Christine writes,  "This is a Block of the Month project from Quilter's Garden quilt shop in Colusa, California. "  These serene, lovely blue and lavender hues remind us of spending a restful vacation at our favorite beach or lake. Are you ready for a swim ?

Garden Delight, 72 x74, by Doreen Appert  

We really like  the dancing ribbon border of this quilt, which features both floral applique and patchwork. The smaller pieced purple basket blocks in each corner are examples of Doreen's careful, accurate workmanship.  


  1. Thanks for the quilt walk about

  2. Que preciosidad de trabajos. Nos han encantado.
    Un beso.

  3. I especially liked seeing that second one because I have a lot of signature blocks on white from our church anniversary and am thinking of stitching them into some kind of a trellis and putting something like "140 years and still growing"... maybe using vines and flowers in this way.
