Featured Member Quilts: April 25 Morning

Good Morning! It’s such a delight to wake up, log on, and look at all the quilts that have been shared with our quilting community at 24 Blocks. It’s hard to select just a few to feature. Here are four that we’ve loved for a while. We hope they inspire and give you some ideas for future projects as well as admiration for work well done.

Our appreciation goes to Mary, Cassandra, Cathy and Pam for sharing them with us all.

from: Mary Deotte: “This was a wedding gift for my son’s roommate. The pattern is “Diamond Log Cabin” by Eleanor Burns. “

Mary’s Christmas Tree skirt is one of the largest and most beautiful we’ve seen. There’s an overall simplicity to the look which does give the impression of snow capped mountains covered in Christmas trees!

Now is a good time to start Christmas quilting!

from: Cassandra Walsh: “Apple Core was hand pieced and hand quilted”

“Apple Core” is one of those continuous patterns that is so pleasing and often done, as Cassandra has, in country-look or vintage fabrics. It’s an old pattern that is sometimes also called “Spools”. It was also used in Friendship Quilts in the 1930’s.

from: Cathy Weissert: “My friend Carol picked all the colors for this quilt, she passed away 4 years ago and I have named it Whirly Girls. I still miss her, but she is still with me.”

Most of us know the feeling that Cathy has expressed. Her quilt says so many things and is just so well done. There’s a restrained fancifulness to the whirlygig design white the quilting is elegant. Thank you for sharing it and its story with us, Cathy.

from: Pam Greer Redden: “On Eagles Wings , paper pieced approx 3270’pieces”

Beautiful!!
