Just when you think your brain is truely fried a little miracle comes along...for me it was this quilt. Last week was a really bad MS week but by Friday I dragged myself out to the LQS for some retail/fabric therapy. Cathy, who owns Quilt Shop on the Corner, asked if I could identify a quilt pattern for her. A local man had brought in this quilt made by his mother and he wanted to give it to his son.
Not feeling very confident I said yes. When she showed me the photo it was like having a finger snap in the brain...Trail....Indian Trail...no...China Trail...no. I knew I was close. I told her I would check Brackman's Enclyclopedia when I got home (for which Cathy called me a Quilt Geek...ok, it fits....) Anyway, halfway home it hit me....Mohawk Trail or China fans. Yay...the painkillers haven't eaten away all of my brain!
I thought I would show a few photos from my quilt guild. One of the things I really like about it is how many styles of quilts and quilting are represented by the members. For instance we have a new self taught quilter who showed this very vintage looking quilt at our last meeting. I'm generally not a yo-yo person but I loved this quilt!
But I also really like the bright and modern look of this quilt (by another quilter) made after a Diane Hires workshop.
Blogger is being difficult with uploading photos today so I will try again later....back to cleaning the house and hopefully putting some quilt binding on!
