This Amazing quilt "Captivated By Nature" is by Olga Gonzalez-Angulo, from Spain.  I have no words to explain how much I love this quilt. It's quite amazing... Just absorb the photos... check out the detail shots, (and yes is the answer.... All hand cut dots...) Congratulations Olga on your win fo this beautiful quilt.

 

 

 

These are a few others that I quite enjoyed.... "Z is for Zinna, C is for Cosmos" by Kathie Kerler, Portland, OR

 

 "The Elephant in the Quilt Room" by Elizabeth Owens, Defunak Springs, FL

 

 I love this mini quilt so much.... "Copper Pennies" Amy Pabst, Le Roy, WV  

( guessing it's about 24" X24" ?? ) Just elegant, and I love the one bottom right corner... perfect.

 

Mikyung Jang, from South Korea. her quilt is painted surface, and quilted and embroidered/beaded etc... So much to look at, and I love all the color!  I met Mikyung last year at Houston, and that quilt was so different, it's fun tot see more work by her.

 

 

 

I also taught a Double Wedding Ring Class, (and gave demo's & several lectures) and I had exceptional students!  If you are in my Instagram page you will see nearly all for them from class... Here's just a few... It's always inspiring to see what fabrics people bring to class, and then I have to go buy my favorites... Yes, That's who I shop, by looking at other peoples stash!

 

 

 

 

I had some fun with people taking photos at my quilt "A Garden for All Seasons." I may or not have photo bombed a few when they weren't expecting it!

 

This quilt was made using my Large 10" and Small 5" Hexagon templates available at my website vfwquilts.com

 

You may also see at my Website, that Pre-orders are available there, for my new book 
which will arrive late August early Sept!
Please note, if you pre-order, you can NOT combine that book with other items on your order...Please order it on it's own.

 

Thank you!

There will be more info coming shortly, now that I am home! YAY!!

 

I can't wait share this book with you!!

Made as a Public Art Piece,

Inspired to make it, because my bank just redid their lobby, and I really thought they needed a  great quilt hanging on the art free walls...

Meant to submit a proposal for it to hang as Public Art...

Found its home, in the new Simplicity Creative Group- EZ Quilting offices which are now in....

 

wait for it...

 

In my Bank building that inspired me to make it in the first place... so it will live where it's meant to be!

It has been a BUSY month!  

Home pretty much to unpack and repack, I am now off to Paducah to prepare for a fun Quilt-y week! I hope to see many of you there!  I have never been to the Paducah Quilt Week Show, although I have been to Paducah to the Museum in the fall which was great.  So, this will be an all new experience for me to see what happens in the town for this week of quilting inspiration!

I have another first happening this week, when I Emcee the Awards Presentation...4:30pm Tuesday. Wish me luck!


I'm most excited about my exhibit of quilts that will hang in the "Bubble" Pavilion... Yes the Double Wedding Rings quilts will be hanging, BUT... So will my "Garden For All Seasons" Quilt!  The 9' X 30' quilt will be hanging and that will be my FIRST time seeing it up vertical (finished) !

It's now been finalized that it will be hanging in the New Simplicity Creative Group Office, (EZ Quilting is one of their brands) after Paducah....only a few blocks away from me in NYC. I'm thrilled!
