Highlights From Metro Quilt Expo 2022 #14

The art of applique lends itself to flower quilts of all styles. These are a few blooming beauties from our last Metro Quilt Expo.

Title: The Caswell Quilt 1835

Artist: Karen Boe
Quilted By: Barb Simons
Pattern Source: Corliss Searcey

“Inspired by the Caswell Carpet in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.”
Title: Pretty Petals

Artist: Carmen Nordback
Quilted By: Becky Leitch
Pattern Source: Aunt Millie’s Garden by Piece O’ Cake Designs

“This quilt is based on the pattern Aunt Millie’s Garden by Piece O’ Cake Designs. I was drawn to the unique flowers in this design. The border was changed by dividing the border fabrics with the vine. I also wanted the vine and flowers to continue around the whole quilt. The border was a little bit of a challenge but I’m pleased with the result.”
Title: Little Bouquets

Artist: Jean Johnson
Quilted By: Becky Lietch
Pattern Source: Coloring book drawing

“The design for this quilt was inspired by a coloring book drawing suggested by my husband. I tried to use as many different fabrics as I could that were chosen from my wonderful stash. This quilt was started in 1996, took a vacation for many years and finally completed as a winter project.”
Title: Roses and Berries

Artist: Mary Rose
Quilted By: Clementine Buzick
Pattern Source: Susan Garman’s “Lily Rosenberry”

“This quilt design especially appealed to me because of the secondary designs that form in the intersections of the blocks. Fun with Berry Math!”
