Aware by Trisch Price from her book, Accentuate the Negative

Adored this amazing ribbon quilt called Aware by Trisch Price, which appears in her book Accentuate the Negative for My Stars, part of Kansas City Star Quilts. It’s a fabulous quilt, and it’s an amazing book full of terrific projects. Highly recommended.

Kathy Doughty shows an original quilt top with 2.5″ hexagons.

Wowed by Australian shopowner, teacher and designer Kathy Doughty at every turn. She has to be one of the most creative people on the planet, but says she only started putting fabric together in unusual ways because she didn’t know any better.

qmp4 Quilt Market PotpourriAgape at this unusual Baltimore-album-type quilt in the Quilts, Inc. exhibit. It’s entitled Yumemi and was made by Maiko Ogawa from Itabashi-ku, Tokyo, Japan. I have detail photos for another blog post. Truly inspiring in every way.
