In other news, I'm on the Aurifil Christmas Ornament Hop next week so buzz in for that! This week's ornaments are made by:
There are some real cuties so make sure to check by and see them.
So I bet you've been wondering what that beautiful quilt is above... it's one of the quilts I loved from Houston, it's a Japanese quilt made by Keiki Ohno, called A Temptation of Stripes. She used what she calls a "felt sheet with many holes" for the overlay, pieced her "stripes" together and then machined around the holes to quilt the layers together. I love the effect.
I promise by the end of this week to have blogged about the other quilts I saw that I enjoyed at Market, there are a lot! Last peek for today is from my friend Dan Rouse, this is his quilt Ripple which was hanging in the Moder Quilt Guild's section of the show. Dan always amazes me with the different way his eye sees a quilt, if you don't read his blog you should. Perhaps it's because he's a garden designer that he looks at fabric with a different eye. This is his take on a Drunkard's Path block.
My annual apologies for the lighting, it is so awful and yellow in the hall and it's almost impossible to get back far enough to take a good pic of any of the quilts.... I do my best :)
