Before I share the second round of quilts from the Warwick, NY quilt show, I thought I'd show my fabric (new project) purchase.
This is a luscious Alexander Henry print called "siva nataraia". Which refers to the statue, natarai, having it's left foot raised and Lord Siva - salvation. The colors are so beautiful and I love the purple elephants.
I intend to use it to make another 4-patch posie quilt. Here is one that I made summer of 2008 and used as a baby gift. These are similar to the one block wonders, but only use 4 squares for the blocks. You can see the fabric on the border that was used to make the blocks.
I also purchased this beautiful Kaffe print - delicious!
And my best purchase of the day was this vintage (ha) ceramic Christmas tree. Now, I know this isn't for everyone, but I have a collection of them that started with my Grandmother's, aka Nana, aka Gertrude.
I'm thinking of giving the Dickens' Village a break and displaying all my trees on the piano this year - They actually are quite charming when grouped.
and it was $3.00, yes that's right - priceless.
Okay on with the rest of the quilts -
Isn't this remarkable?
I think I'd rather like to try this one day -
I loved the dancing lanterns -
Great use of border prints here.
I'm studying pineapple quilts after making mine - they are an interesting subject.
This was in interesting strippy quilt -
Tomorrow is clothesline tote day again and I'm hoping to finish it.
Have a great day and I hope you find time to do some sewing.
