Redlands Quilt Extravaganza

To cut a long story short - today should have been a sewing day with Sunday Stitchers...but three of us (De Cheryl & I) ended up at the Redlands Quilt Extravaganza at Cleveland.

There was so much to admire and get inspiration from....

Lots of photos coming...lots...

This is a variation on a one block wonder...always wanted to do one of these:

and a close up


 This one had a very interesting border... 
 Can't resist trees ..
 This was great - could only get a close shot
The quilting was fabulous

 I took this one for Chooky - the chooks are machine embroidery
 This was fairly small - but such a variety of embroidery stitches

This is a Nikki Tervo pattern - stitched circles on a jelly roll race quilt - not such a good shot but a wonderful quilt - would look equally good using another fabric in place of the stitched circles.
 This was an interesting border on a Lucy Boston quilt


Here are a few quilts by Lynne Williams - she had quite a few quilts on display.  I met Lynne many years ago when I went to a creative arty group - it stopped after a while - just as I was getting into it - but I admire this woman's talent immensely.
She has had a serious cancer scare and some of her quilts reflect what she went through in relation to the illness and her treatments.   Very moving.



 And I thought this was also very clever



 some interesting quilting
 Love the Amy Butler adaptation



 Jeanette - I took this one for you!

 De, Cheryl and I examined this one very closely - it is based on Bonnie Hunter's Maverick Star - but comparing this one to the original - I love this one so much more...Although it is "wonky" it is structured wonky - only the points are "off kilter" - what a great scrap quilt and a great group project . . .we thought . . . 


This is a close up of the stars:

You can see what I mean about structured . . .I hope

 It must have been the day for Wonky as we also spied this one - wonky flying geese:


So many new projects to start . . .so man old ones to finish first...??
Thanks for your company De & Cheryl - it was a great day

Sad we didn't get a sewing day - but we did have a ball.
