Trunk Show

It was so nice to sit in the audience and see the fabulous quilts made by Laurie Simpson, of Minick and Simpson, at the Ocean Waves Quilt Show. Laurie and her sister, Polly Minick, are fabric designers for Moda and have many quilt patterns available in their Americana style. 

This is the new “Flag” quilt. I’ve made the stars and bars Quilt of Valor several times and I have at least three patterns to make quilts languishing in the “some day” que. 

I absolutely love the appliquéd borders. 

This quilt looks doable. It would be a good stash-buster in scraps. It would only bust my stash if I made 40 quilts, tho.

I’m never making this quilt. Nope. Never. 

A star a day! 365 stars. I wonder how far I would get with that?

Laurie said this quilt pattern was her best seller ever. I’m pretty sure one of my friends, Andra? made this quilt. Or else I have the pattern and that’s why it looks so familiar. I better re-visit my  project pile. I’m motivated to start something traditional and I really need some hand appliqué.
