Inspiration at Quilt Fest, NJ

Last Saturday, my husband took me as a B-day gift to a Quilt show in NJ. The weather is finally warming up and it was a beautiful day. I got a lot of inspiration off the pretty quilts and I want to share some with you.

The first quilt is made by Anna Faustino, PA. The quilt is called "Butterfly Dance" and I love the embellishments, she used crystals.

"Simply Strawberries" is made by H. Titus, PA and the name says it all! Pretty!

I love Stack and Whack quilts. I have a book and one UFO using that method. The quilt bellow is made by Carol Scullin,NJ and she used only one fabric and you can see there a lot of different blocks. She made it for her son that is a graphic designer.

The next quilt is"Circle of Life" made by Linda French, OH. It won Best of show!
The description says: " my first attempt at "design as you go" and has been the most fun exhirating and fun experience ever. The door is open and may the key be lost forever!"
I believe there is a designer in everyone!

Here is " Blue Butterfly Day" made by Sarah O'Sullivan, PA. It was made as a part of a challenge "Black & White & Hmmm....All over". I started to collect black and white prints and I thought she did an amazing job at it!

The last quilt I am showing is a yo -yo quilt. I think the designer did an amazing job at the picking colors and executing it. The quilt is made by Manon Gadliardi, CT and it's called "Cathedral Window".

Here is a close up:

I would like to Thank everybody for the Birthday wishes! I wish I could share my cake with you.

I made Hummingbird cake, it had pineapple, bananas and walnuts and it was delicious. Here is the recipe I used.

Till next time, Happy sewing!
