Greetings dear readers! I don’t have progress on projects to share in this post for a couple reasons. I traveled last week for my trunk show, which I’m happy to say was a resounding success! The members of the “Crazy Quilters of Cape Cod” were so friendly and welcoming that it was a real joy to share my quilts with them. The other reason is that I finally got started on a September mini and will wait to share it at the end of the month. So…this is a good opportunity to share some more of the excellent quilts from New England Quiltfest. You can enlarge any photo by clicking on it. Take the time to enjoy the details of these wonderful pieces!!
I love how this artist used these special fabrics, which I think are of South African origin – and all hand pieced, embroidered, and appliqued!
The craftsmanship on this next quilt was incredible, but hard to convey in photos – lots of intricate hand work, best seen up close:
A glimpse of the back:
The original spelling of my name was “Glady” until I changed the “y” to “i” in my early 20’s to stop people from automatically adding an “s”. I’ve only seen the name a handful of times so I had to photograph this quilt!😊:
I loved the composition, colors, – well, actually everything! – about this next quilt:
Beautiful appliqué, machine quilting, and overall traditional design for this one:
A lovely pictorial:
There was an exhibit of “mid century modern” style quilts which I found interesting and here are a couple of them. I especially like the inter-play of the triangular and rectangular shapes in Sidewalk Shuffle:
I’m loving the fact that I still have many more quilts from this show and from the museum to share and in one month my guild is having their annual show, so even more to come!
There’s definitely a nip in the air when I walk in the early morning and the sweaters and jackets are out! Leaves on bushes and very young trees are turning:
We are in a drought and the river is running very low. None of the solid objects in the river in this photo should be above water:
Last year at this time, because of abundant rain, there was a profusion of fungi and mushrooms of all colors. This year there are almost none 🙁. Thank goodness for several hours of steady rain last evening and through the night! On a recent walk I saw a “rafter” (flock) of wild turkeys:
And then a few minutes later saw these guys wandering about:
I generally enjoy these kinds of surprises on my walks, but hoping not to see bears! I’ll be back soon with project updates and more quilt photos!
Be kind, be grateful, and cherish each day, Gladi
