"Perpetuo Mobile" was made by Rachel Covo from Israel. It is machine appliqued, machine pieced and quilted, and uses tie-dyed, discharge dyed, and hand-dyed fabrics. Rachel says she got her inspiration from a book called "Variations in Chenille" by Nanette Holberg. You might check that out if you like this quilt. I thought you might enjoy the closeup below.
The next quilt title is "Pieceful Nights" and was made by Christine Williams (Aurora, IL) and quilted by Julie Karlak on a longarm machine. Lori Smith's Pieceful Nights pattern was used to create this quilt. I just love the subtle colors. It is made with 1800s reproduction fabrics.
"Turn Left at the Gate/55 and Over" made by Mimi Wohlberg (Merrick, NY) is the next quilt. It is made using the raw-edge applique method. I really like the bright colors in this quilt. The inspiration for the quilt made me laugh; it was something about a retirement community that only allowed those 55 and over to live there. (The left corner is a bit obscured by the stand holding the quilt information.)
"Snug as a Bug" was made by Carol Taylor from Beaumont, TX. She used flannels to make this beautiful quilt. It really looks cozy.
