A virtual quilt show - Quilts 4 & 5

These two quilts were made from a Quiltmaker pattern. A simple scalloped sashing between the string blocks is very effective. I don't usually do needle turn applique but these scallops were easy.

The first one was made just with strips and strings from the *cool* side of the color wheel...blue, green, purple, and yellow.

The second was made from leftovers from a blue and yellow quilt.

These look great! I have a sticky note bookmark on that pattern in my own copy of Quiltmaker magazine because I think it would be a great Linus quilt. Glad to hear the horizontal curves are not too hard.

Sorry I've been out of touch -- computer woes, now remedied.

Those are really pretty. I thought at first the wavy sashing was raw edged. Thanks for sharing.

I just love the touch of the scalloped sashing. Hope you will share the how to's sometime.

Mmm...the scallops. Yours are as delightful as the edible ones! ;-)

Hope you're having a wonderful time! The Cities are going to be even more full of color when you get back, I'm sure of it! It's getting ch-chillier every day!

I really like the wavy borders. It adds a nice contrast to the straight lines!

I always liked your curvy quilts! I even have a little note in my "quilt binder" - Mary's curvy quilt - on my list to do... someday! It was nice to see them here again!
Cheers!
