Trunk Show! Showing a few of my quilts made with Eleanor Burns and a couple of others.

Soma of Whims and Fancies is having a virtual trunk show. What a great idea! There are even prizes besides all the wonderful eye candy one can see.  Here are a few of mine:

First finished quilt, hand quilted.
 
 
Dancing Light--had to try Caryl Bryer Fallert's High Tech Tucks design after I saw it!

 
My first completed hexie quilt, lent to El for a bed turning (almost a charm quilt but ended up using 2 of some of the "Civil War" prints to make it Queen sized!)


From El's Quilt Blocks on American Barns--I made  3", 6" and 12" versions of all the blocks (and matching barns)--this is my 6" version that made the book!

 
Stars Galore.  I made this one from the 12" flag block and an 'blown up version of 6" flag (Americana Star) from El's Quilt Blocks on American Barns with star sashing--made the book and Quilt! magazine!!!  Obviously I like it as it's at the top of my blog.....

 
My 6" version of El's Ladies of the White House (yep, made the book!) Still need to quilt my 12" version.....

 
Victory!  My Victory quilt with El (first quilt to make it into one of her books!!)


Mrs. Cleveland's Star from one of the patterns in Ladies of the Whitehouse.  This one made the book too.  I'm very lucky that I get to sew El.

You certainly are privileged to quilt with this quilting legend. Your quilts are wonderful and what a thrill for you to be featured in one of her publications. Beautiful quilts.

Love the name dropping here! I first thought, El, who's El. Shouldn't you give the whole name. Then I figured it out. Of course. You don't need to give the whole name, I know exactly who you are talking about. Lots of lovely quilts here - you deserve to be published too! Love the barn quilt the best.

I obviously need to spend a little time around here...and find out who El is...you have certainly been a credit to her! Your quilts are beautiful! I love the Mrs Cleveland block! Just lovely!

Carol said...

Your quilts are so beautiful Sally! It is easy to see why El loves them too. How exciting that you've made it into her books and bed turnings. That's something to be thrilled about!

So many great quilts. And I especially like your hexie quilt. As you may see on my blog, I'm a hexie queen.

I love hexagons so I was thrilled to see yours. I've never made a sampler quilt but after seeing yours I'm starting to think that maybe it is time. Thanks for the trunk show!
