Quilter's Guild of Brooklyn Show

 Below are some of the most striking of the quilts presented by my quilt guild, the Quilters' Guild of Brooklyn, over the weekend at the Block Institute in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. I am always so impressed with the talent of the other members of my guild, and I always come away inspired and with about 10 ideas about what my next project should be. This time, I'm leaning toward doing a medialian quilt, like the one pictured on the left in the 2nd row, and I bought a wedge-shaped plastic triangle from a vendor at the show that I can use to make something similar.
My entry is 9 rows down, and it was one of the few quilts in the show with a white background. I actually finished this quilt a few years ago for and gave it a friend, but had never shown it at a Guild show, so I borrowed it back  for the event. It was nice not to have to struggle to finish something in-progress on a deadline.


  1. Those are all fantastic and inspiring but I love yours best of all.

  2. I love yours as well. I am so sorry I missed this show!!! Next time! Can't wait to see your medallion quilt. I don't know why this is signing as Connor but this note is from me, Tania!

  3. I think I may have finally figured out how to comment here. My aborted attempts don't say much for my technical abilities, but I did want to thank you for including my quilt in your gallery. I'm so pleased that you liked it. I have more than one photo of your quilt. I think it's lovely and I've been trying to work out the pattern. Your quilts are so bight and happy and colorful. You do beautiful work, Ginny.
