Dee Anderson made this very dramatic wall hanging for Mardi Gras! The holiday has past for this year but it inspires us to start thinking about next year’s celebration! Thanks, Dee!

Linda Schrankel‘s tractor quilt she made for her youngest grandson has been very popular with our readers at 24 Blocks. Looks like a Deere to us! Thanks, Linda, for sharing it with our quilting community.

Cindy Vaverka simply writes “Here is my first attempt at bargello.” But we all know there’s nothing simple about this technique, adapted from embroidery designs daing back to the 17th century. Today’s bargello quilts create the same effect with fabric. The placement of the colors allow the quilt to seem to wave in a sharp movement. It’s a traditional idea made modern. Thanks, Cindy, for showing us your art.

Laura Manson‘s quilt, although modern in design, tooks like stained glass to us…so we’re putting it in today’s St. Patrick’s Day feature. And there is green in it. Laura says that the original pattern is called “New Waves”. She calls this work “Brittany’s Double Rainbow”. It’s a graduation gift for a niece. We love it!!!! Thanks, Laura, for your post.
