Little Quilts

I was chatting with Lucy about her little quilts, and told her that I'd been lucky enough to take two days of classes with Jo Morton. Jo gets her inspiration from small antique quilts - doll and baby size - and reproduces them in today's fabrics. She is a wonderful teacher, and I spent two wonderful days with her. Lucy made me promise to post a few pictures of Jo's quilts. I tried last Friday but blogger kept eating the pictures, so I saved the post as a draft to post to on Saturday, and blogger ate the draft also.

This is "Rebecca's Baskets" - one of the classes I took from Jo. This one is all hand pieced, appliqued and quilted.

I loved this little postage stamp quilt. The border fabric gives such wonderful movement to the quilt.

This Eagle Medallion was one of my favorites. The border does go all the way around - I just managed to cut it off in my picture. Broken dishes is a scrap pattern than I will definitely do one of these days. I figure it is a great way to use up left over half square triangle squares. Another wonderful eagle medallion.

She showed at least 40 marvelous little quilts in her lecture. I'll post more pictures tomorrow. Lucy, these are especially for you!
