    The quilts in this thread are beyond amazing!
    I posted a few pics in my intro thread and this ColorSplash Trip Around the World seemed popular . Fabric selection is key. I'd love to make a bed-sized one some day.

    Wow everyones quilts are absolutely gorgeous, such a great thread to look through. Here are a coupld of pics of quilts I am most proud of.
    The first one is The Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt made as a BOW here with a wonderful group of ladies, it took over 12 months to make.

    The second is a pattern matched LeMoyne Star, which again took me over 12 months to make as I only used the pattern for the centrepiece, then turned it on point and did my own thing for the rest of the quilt. It is a pattern from Quilters World here in Australia

    Spectacular. I did a small double wedding ring wall hanging a few years ago so I'm aware of just how much work went in to this beauty. Thanks for sharing.

    Maribelle. I love your star quilt. That is so beautiful. All the quilts are fabulous. This is better than a quilt show. I kept thinking I sure would hate to have to judge these. There would be a whole lot of blue ribbons! Thanks ladies. This was fabulous.

    The quilt that I am the most proud of is my king-sized General's Wives, seen here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...d-t191845.html. What a great thread!

    Mirabelle, your quilts are stunning. I wish there was another word to use. Your Farmer's Wife is gorgeous. Wish I had the nerve to attempt one of those. Good on ya. (Don't they say that in Australia?)

    Hello SewNSo ... Not MiraBelle .... though am another who completed the FWS. The FWS is a book of patterns created by Laurie Aaron Hird along with stories about women who wrote into a magazine in the early 1900's answering the question "Would you recommend your daughter to marry a farmer?".

    There were 111 six inch blocks, all different in the quilt and the group did them here on the QB as a quilt-along, doing two blocks per week. Some diligently followed the pace (such as MiraB!) and others like me, joined in at various stages and gradually got them done. Also just a few pages before MiraB's is QuiltingNinaSue's FWS. QNSue did some other block patterns to finish off with 145 different blocks!! I will post mine to this thread tonight or tomorrow.

    Hi
    Well everyone quilt are gorgeous, and must hold a very special place in everyone heart.
    I have only have only completed 3 quilts one of them is still been quilted, and three cot quilts for my grandsons. But I think a stunning quilt is, one that you have done for yourself or someone else that you have put some love in and or that have meaning for you. Or the colours and pattern go with the place that it is going to live. And that you can learn new things and different patterns.

    Here is 3 pictures of the ones I have made.

    I got the book for Christmas and I'm so new to quilting it may be several years before I attempt the quilt, but the book is really fun to read and would be worth buying.

    This is not a quilt for the beginner. I consider myself an intermediate quilter. Some of these curves can be tricky to get just right, at least for me!
    I love this pattern. I have signed up for the mariners compass...I am extremely nervous but excited to learn from the five month class.

    Just start with one block at a time .... and you know you can make a tabletopper or runner.
    Then a few more, and you know you could do a wall hanging.
    Few more, a baby quilt.
    Onwards to a lap quilt.
    By then you'll be hooked and be counting the other direction!!!!!!!

    That's the joy of a sampler ... you can stop at anytime and have something from it!
    I've used that strategy many times ............... and have some beautiful large bed sized quilts as a result!

    Just stumbled across this post and enjoyed the quilt show on a snowy morning! Loved the quilts, and found this to be an inspirational thread. My two McKenna Ryan bed size quilts are my current favorites.

    Quilters: I couldn't stop myself. I was going to look at just a few pages, but couldn't put down the mouse...LOL! I am in absolute awe of the beautiful quilts. I view each as a work of art, making you all artists. Some quilts stunned me, others left me speechless. I couldn't stop. It would be just too difficult to pick just one as my favorite. I saved some of them for my quilt ideas folders (ones I want to try someday) and some I saved just so I could look at them again. I am so grateful for this board.

    Found your quilt on Pinterest today, 11/4/13. Lo and behold clicking on the photo links me back to QB and the original photo! JanRN, I love, love, love this quilt! Since I can find the quilt here on QB, I did not pin it to my board.
