Flying Needles Quilt Guild and Fun Quilts recently put on an amazing trunk show featuring all of the quilts from Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr’s latest book, Quilts Made Modern. This Stunning book which you can purchase here through Amazon at an excellent price.
Here’s a snapshot of the Fun Quilts trunk-show and all the beauty they had to offer…I hope you enjoy. And if you’ve read this amazing book and would like to leave a review, I’d love to hear from you. This amazing quilt(s) was inspired by the small houses in Chicago and when you look out your window you see the brick of another building..now you can see birds on a wire, well sort-of:) Isn’t this adorable with the simple background, amazing quilting and the cutest little birds one would want to see?
This quilt was based off of a “postage stamp” style, with it’s simplicity in the stitching and the hand-quilting..yes Weeks did this by hand, unbelievably perfect!! The colours just make me and maybe you feel super cheery, love this one!!
Here’s all the gals ogling over another quilt – sew adorably contemporary.
And yet another one to wet your palette with stunning colour and curves…amazing I say!
This one here had me at “hello”, just the colours alone brought me in nice and close…brown and orange so different for me but I LOVE it!
Sew to sum this one up, well worth it from the refreshments and hospitality from Flying Needles Quilt Guild to the peaceful atmosphere of being in the Millarville Church to being surrounded by Quilters – I would say this trunk show was an absolute hit! Thanks so much to Bill Kerr for taking the time to come see us, teach us, inspire us and leave us ever-changed!
If you were one of us lucky ones who got to see the trunk show and/or took his workshop, please leave me a review to share with everyone:) Thanks sew much!
