Ft. Worth Quilt Show, Part 2

I spied this quilt almost the minute I walked into the show. Does it look familiar? It's our Nuts and Bolts quilt from the Quilt Sampler magazine - only the maker substituted a purple shot cotton. Did we get a design mention in the description? Heck no!

This quilt is Cinnamon Stitches (pattern by Piece O' Cake). I've always loved this pattern -but I don't own the patterns because I didn't know how to applique when it was published. The colors aren't clear, but the quilt was made with lovely reds, greens, and cheddars. It was also difficult to photograph because I couldn't back up far enough to get it all in.

Here's another shot that includes a portion of the vine border.

Being married to a guitar player, I just had to take a picture of this one!

I thought this quilt was really creative. It's all hand applique and the design inspiration was Broadway playbills. I think it was made for a theatre student.

That's all for tonight....more to come tomorrow!

Sorry the first person didn't mention her source - hopefully the pattern is famous enough that people recognized it!! All of these quilts are beautiful - thanks for sharing them.

The quilt with guitars was done from a pattern without credit too. It was a pattern from Robby Joe Eklow and was sold through Quilting Arts.
