|quilts that live at my house|
I did a quilt trunk show last Thursday night at my quilt club. For those of you who aren't familiar with trunk shows, it is an opportunity for a quilter to share her work with others. I collected some of the quilts that I gave away, then added those to my own collection so I had a total of 25 quilts to show. (No, there are not 25 quilts in the two pictures shown since some already have gone back home.) It made me glad that I label my quilts because it helped me know what order they were completed. A person would think you could remember when something was made, but over the course of 13 years and about fifty quilts, my memory was a bit fuzzy. It was fun to share some of the stories of the quilts with other quilters. My favorite of the ones that I collected was the baby quilt I made for my younger niece(shown below).
After looking at all sorts of quilts (my own creations as well as others), I have come to the conclusion that the pattern isn't nearly as important as the fabrics put into a quilt. So the questions I have for you is-if someone was making you a quilt, what kind of fabrics or colors would you want in a quilt?
