    I am sitting here looking at all these incredible quilts (Snooze2978's gets my vote for the best of the best,) ooh-ing and aah-ing at every image. My DH started to wonder what I was looking at and I told him "quilt porn." It certainly is a not-so-guilty pleasure to drink in the fruits of the work of these amazing quilters.

    Thanks so much to all of you for sharing.

    I downloaded a picture of this quilt the first time I saw it posted and bought the same fabric to make it. It is on my list. Love, love, love this quilt. They are all nice but this is my hands-down favourite. Thank you for sharing again.

    I have been wanting to try the Double Wedding Ring but not sure if I am ready for that big of a challenge. I helped my grandma hand quilt hers but I don't know who got it after she passed. So would really like to make one. Love yours.

    Bailey, I think that definitely qualifies for the stunning category. I've never seen one with the appliques like yours. The animals are perfect and really make your quilt special.

    That is amazing, Lynda. Your mom would be so proud!

    Stunning Quilts

    Quote Originally Posted by fireworkslover View Post
    My quilt I made for a fireworks quilt challenge titled, " Ooooh, An Eight Break Snail Shell", is my best work so far. The pattern is by Pat Wolfe called "Circle of Fire". She created one circle and I made them different sizes and colors. Six are paper pieced and range in size from 8.5" to 19" in diameter pieced. The two smallest are 7.5" & 6" diameter and they are fused. The quilting lines extend out further on all circles to expand each break to a larger area covered by stitching. Each star is made from 8 diamonds. Two pie shaped triangles are sewn to the diamond to form 1/8 of the circle. The dark gray/black background fabric I chose, also had a subtle snail (spiral) print on it in various dark values of gray. I fmq on my domestic machine. I originally was going to make it in sections and then sew it together, but decided partway through to sew the whole top together and then fmq it. I used metallic, polyester and silk threads for quilting. Finished size is 63" X 74". It took me about 6 months to make. I took First Place in the Quilt Challenge and People's Choice for the Art Show at the Pyrotechnic Guild International Convention in 2010.

    My picture failed to load. I'll hopefully get one to work soon.
    OK, I hope this works.

    Fireworkslover that definitely qualifies as stunning. Did you have a pattern or just made up one? I'm a fireworks lover too.

    All these quilts are stunning.
