And it's on the way to a quilt collector in San Francisco. This peaceful quilt in beautiful soothing colors is good for daydreaming. It makes me want to go to the Caribbean. If this quilt was for me, I would have included some prints, maybe batiks. Interesting surprises to find on the beach. But I like this "clean" version too.

The good thing about eating a "virtual" cupcake is that there are no calories.
So let's have two!
Also, let's have a little quilt show. These are some images I found on the Internet.
The first one is by Brigitte Giblen Quilts.
Below: "Colorful Crooked Path" by NonnaZac on Etsy.
Below: "Rooster on White Quilt Top" offered by Minnie and Garland Adkins on LiveAuctioneers. Made in 1991.
Below: "Ignored Quilt" from the Delightfully Tacky site. I came up with that name because the blog author wrote extensively about how she decorated this room and never once mentioned the quilt! I think it's the centerpiece of the whole room.
Below: "A Symbol Recomposed" by Lorena and three of her friends in Sydney, Australia. Wow!
I hope you enjoyed my little virtual birthday party! :)

This is a close-up shot of part of the Sea Glass quilt. I'll show you the finished quilt soon.
There are about 9 different solid color fabrics in this quilt. All the shapes and the arrangements are improvisational, so this is a very carefree project.

The Solar Quilt is finished and has been shipped to a collector in San Francisco. These photos were taken just before the top was quilted. The fabrics include solids, hand-dyes, batiks and abstract prints. The quilt measures 65" square. It will be hung on a wall. Now my dh wants one just like it. Haha.

Queenie's Needlework: 13th Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2014
I found this charming quilt photo on Pinterest (pinned by Pat Sloan).
I like everything about this quilt; the fern applique sashing is a very nice touch.

Have you wondered where I've been? My computer has had a virus. I remember saying "Why would anyone need a personal computer?" Now I'm lost without it. I'm not fully back in business, but I'm getting there. If you've emailed me, please be patient.
Tomorrow I'll show you a quilt I've been working on. Something different.

This stunning string quilt "Diamond Fan" is part of the collection of the Mingei International Museum in San Diego, CA. See more of their quilt collection here.
I think it would be fun to make a quilt like this!

Vintage Crazy Quilt, detail, photo by Allie Aller. This quilt is from the collection of Kaffe Fassett.
I like that border. Imagine how this quilt would look loaded with embellishments! How about some tiny black seed beads and silk ribbon embroidery?

This custom rag quilt was made by OSewManyRags for a wedding gift. All the words were chosen for the happy couple. The letters are hand painted. The back of the quilt is maroon, just like the game board.
She sells these custom quilts on Etsy.

I'm not fooling you (on April Fool's Day), this is an embroidered quilt!
It's called "Just My Imagination."
I want to make something like this!
The winner of the gray wool pincushion is Regan from Maine! Yayy!
