Quilt JoY !

It doesn't take many clicks to find wonderful quilts on the web. I've been browsing because I'm off on another little trip with Scott - this time to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He is taking a Landscape Painting workshop from Jim Wilcox - a premiere painter of the Teton Mountains and surrounding area. While Scott paints I'm going to sew something really cute like these quilts here. (Well, maybe not this cute because I can't seem to find this kind of funky fabric here in Logan, but cute enough.) The first quilt (above) is a vibrant quilt I found on the fun blog parkcitygirl. I'm excited about taking my new sewing machine and trying a new challenge of sewing in a hotel room.

The three quilts above are by Camille Roskelley of Thimble Blossoms. Her blog is called Simplify. She is a fabric designer, a pattern designer and a quilter. She's high energy like the girls I work with. I just ordered her Cotton Blossom line because it's starting to disappear and I don't want to miss getting it.

The next three are made by the quilter who posts on the blog lovelylittlehandmades.blogspot.com. I love love love her use of aqua and red. And she stipple- quilts her pieces herself on her machine. I can do that with my new machine if I fork out the cash for a walking foot. I'm going to try it without the special foot and probably make a real mess :)
The quilts above and below are made by the owner of Old Red Barn Co. blog. I think the fabric above is the Ginger Blossom line by Sandi Henderson. It's a gorgeous line of fabric...but you must be brave to use it I think. The quilt below is also by Old Red Barn Co. All but one of the fabrics are Amy Butler fabrics.

I'm inspired!

Those are some FUN quilts. Post your quilt when you get it finished. You are one crazy traveler, good for you! I would love to get together for lunch, call me when you're in town. I'll be anxiously waiting! :)

Love those quilts, very inspiring! You got a new machine? I didn't know that. When you told me yesterday that you took your machine, I was very surprised because it probably would have made the bumper drag. Have fun, and find some thread!
