Paducah Day 2

Since I have been making so many quilts with fabric strips...log cabin, courthouse steps, and pineapple, I was attracted to all of the quilts that used fabric strips to create the quilt design. Here are some of my favorites. They all use strips in creative ways.

Magic Carpet Ride (32" x 32") by Carolyn Vogt of Kennewick, WA – This quilt combines an interesting technique with a simple skewed block. The colors were influenced by the Bedouin carpet in Carolyn's studio. Inspired by a Carol Taylor workshop and the Tipsy pattern from Fons and Porter's Quilty Magazine. Machine pieced and quilted.

Autumn In The City (45" x 45") by Christina Larrson of Lidingo Sweden – Christina's inspiration came from the happy autumn leaves and color on a windy day. It was pieced and quilted on a home machine.

Feathered Friends (62" x 56") by Karen Hull Sienk of Colden, NY – This quilt was inspired by the beauty of autumn in New York and the joy of the daily visit by Karen's feathered friends. Karen quilted the original design on her home machine.

While Hearing Brahms (69" x 80") by Mitsuko Sugimoto of Kawasaki Kanagawa, Japan – This piece is made with cloth from Paducah. Mitsuko created this quilt in gratitude to her supportive husband while listening to him play Brahms. Inspired by a log cabin pattern by Nihon Vogue.
