D’oh, I forgot to download my fair photos!  There’s not so many this year, I went in the evening and the light wasn’t great. Good thing there’s another fair to go to tomorrow! Fingers crossed the light will be better, and the day not too hot.

I picked out a few of my favorite quilts. Some I like the pattern, others the colors. Others just look pretty.

 

I wonder if the person who made the later square quilt made this one–that olive green looks pretty familiar! I like the color combo, and how the straight lines fool the eye into seeing circles.  (Oh, and I had my flash off so everything has a yellow hue. I just didn’t get good photos this year.)

This is so pretty, and would look great either on the wall, or hanging over the back of the couch. Wouldn’t it be great to receive this as a gift?

This flag quilt doesn’t look so special in the photo, but in person it has been heavily machine quilted with metallic thread highlighting each firework pop. It had plenty of sparkle.

Imagine all the time that went into embroidering each square. This is a full bed-sized quilt, too, I just went in for the closeup here so you can see detail. Hours and hours of work.

Here’s that olive green I mentioned. I like this one, although it wouldn’t fit my decor. I guess I like it would look okay on a masculine bed–it’s hard to make a quilt that works okay for a man.

This one is huge! I had that little girl stand there so you can get an idea of the true dimensions. Thanks, anonymous little girl!

I like sampler quilts, and I’ve got in my mind to make something like this to use as a table cloth. Different colors, those red/turquoise I think about but never actually use. Maybe I will soon!

This string quilt I think is particularly successful. Dramatic contrasts between the bolds and lights. It’s hard to pull off when your stash is mostly middle ground colors (who me? says the fabric closet).

I find photographic prints hard to incorporate in designs, and this window pane quilt uses them well.

We just liked this pouf. I wouldn’t mind putting my feet up on that!

Last year I got a fantastic tiger photo I still haven’t painted, and this year the bobcat was a hit. I saw one of these once when I was mountain biking. I looked up the trail, looked down at my gears, thought, “What the?” and looked back up, and it had vanished. I used to see a lot of deer, but that was the only cat ever. Thank goodness. He might be a little guy, but not little enough for me!
