Husband and I returned a week ago from a trip to the East Coast that took us through Maryland, Virginia, and primarily West Virginia. Along the way we noticed a number of building with quilt blocks painted on them.
It seems that in West Virginia there was a program that took place with many towns participated in doing these quilt blocks on the sides of roads and buildings.
It was fun to see various examples of this.
Of course I had to stop in a couple of general stores along the way and found several pieces for sale by local quilters.
Several of these spiral runners were for sale. I made one not too long ago myself, so appreciated the work that goes into these pieces.
This particular runner I found really nice. It was all quilt as you go, and the blue Indigo fabrics really made this simple runner so attractive.
So I'm home again, but had a fun time and enjoyed not only a wonderful opportunity to see the country and some fun quilting ideas and scenes as well.
such great photos!ReplyDelete
What fun finds.ReplyDelete
I love those quilts beautifying those buildings. It sounds as if you have had a fabulous time away. The quilt with the indigo dyed pieces is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
I love "barn" quilts. I have two hanging on my fence in my yard.ReplyDelete
I really like that spiral table runner. It is now on my list of future projects. The building quilts are very interesting!ReplyDelete
Love the Barn Quilts. I would like to mount one on my backyard fence so I could look at it every day out my kitchen's garden window. The Indigo quilt is very nice.ReplyDelete
Thank you for all the comments. I am once again having problems with comments making it into my email. Not sure this time if it is me or some computer problems I had while off on vacation in West Virginia. While I fix this mess I just want to let those of you that have taken the time to comment how much I appreciate you input.ReplyDelete
Quilting inspiration is everywhere!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a wonderful trip! I immediately thought of all of your work on your spiral runner when I saw the picture of the one you ran across! I do love that indigo table runner too!ReplyDelete
It does sound like a very nice trip. Those outdoor quilt blocks are really impressive - I hadn't seen examples before where the actual fabric is painted! (just color blocks, you know?)ReplyDelete
I love your posts and everything looks wonderful. I love your idea thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
