Berkshire Trip, Part 2

Marion and I sat next to Kim G. this weekend, which made me feel a little bit inadequate. Kim put together nine quilt tops in four days and was working on a tenth quilt when we left on Saturday afternoon. To be fair, Kim had brought all of her blocks made and just had to assemble the tops and add borders. Kim is a lightening fast sewer and the only one who could probably truly challenge her is Pat, who was at a wedding last weekend instead. We look forward to a Pat vs. Kim challenge this fall at the Cape!

Here are some of Kim G.'s completed quilt tops. They will be on display at Tumbleweeds Quilt Shop in Barnstable, MA in July. I love all of Kim's quilts and her color choices. She uses mostly Kaffe Fassett fabrics and batiks.

Single Irish Chain. Both of our Kims. Kim P. on left, Kim G. on right.

This pattern uses twelve fat quarters, and is aptly named Cheaper by the Dozen from Legacy Patterns.
Kaffe Fassett Leafy Rosy Quilt, which is a nine patch, plain patch design.

This is a Double Slice Layer Cake quilt which you can find on YouTube from the Missouri Quilt Company. Kim also made one in batik fabric.
Nancy D. brought her new toy...a super-sized portable design wall. She bought it at Cheryl Ann's Design. She is laying out an I Spy Quilt for our friend Jen's new baby boy, Mason. Mason was born in the wee hours of Tuesday morning before we left for our Berkshire's Trip.

Nancy also added the binding to her Halloween Row by Row.
This is Cordula's finished Autumn Daze quilt.
It is a Kaffe Fassett pattern. Cordula nicknamed it, Fall Stupor.
 Cordula will have her quilts on display at Tumbleweeds Quilts in Barnstable, MA, in June.
Cindy was working on her Hoffman Challenge entry. It is entirely sewn by hand. She doesn't own a sewing machine!
Cheryl is working on this applique quilt.

The quilt features Japanese taupe fabrics. I really like the alternating pieced blocks as well.
Stay tuned, I have lots more photos!

Pugs and kisses,
