More Quilts, Less Talk

Just a few quilts I liked from IHQS with very little commentary. These are not big winners; winners should be posted on the IQHS web site soon.


V Spot Target Attack by Connie Brown. I like the softness of this color scheme; the complementary orange/blue is bright but doesn't jump at you, and the whole arrangement is somehow restful.



Peace and Harmony by Terry Benzo. The title says it all.



Enticement Klonda Holt. Honorable Mention, Pieced Amateur. This is a Karen Stone pattern done with beautiful color, and the striped fabric making the secondary design was her original touch which sets this apart.



She finally reached her ideal weight by Sandee Winrow Milhouse. Another honorable mention, in Art Quilt. I like humor in quilts, even when it's black humor.




Redaction by Loretta Painter. Not my usual thing at all. I don't usually care for chocolate brown and blue, and the design is rather static. But it's interesting to examine how she put it together, and the quilting was done on a home machine, and very well too.

Very nice selection here.
All the quilts you choose were on the quiet side (except the skeleton one, which was great)...maybe it reflects what you are seeing out your window at this time of year.
They all have a lot of soul, too...

Thanks!

I like that first one and, of course the skeleton one sings to me. Been on a diet all my life.

Allison noticed that your choices were quieter, more muted. I find it interesting to see the fabric choices we all make - neutrals, controlled color schemes, black & white, brights, homespuns or earthy colors. I can love any and all of them. Yet all of us tend to create in our own individual schemes almost without being aware of it.

Love the "ideal weight" skeleton. "Very current!" says I, having another cookie, or two.

Oh my! Thank you so much for sharing this. Goodness I'm bursting.

Okay...

Redaction I said: WOW! and with that quilting, too. The piecing just amazed me and...

V Spot. Really dig it. I thought and think "how'd they do that?"

AND ALLISON IS RIGHT. they all have a lot of soul. Perfectly said with love, *karendianne.

They're all lovely, but the V Spot Attack is particularly pleasing to my eye.

Thank you for sharing these for those of us who couldn't attend! I like your choices as well. Yep, the skeleton says it all.
