Great Trunk Show from Regina Carter

_2091575

At my local guild meeting we heard from a local quilter by the name of Regina Carter.  I knew of Regina from the Lake Oconee Guild and knew that she was a wonderful long-arm quilter, but I had NO idea just how deep her pool of talents ran!!!!

As she presented her trunk show, I was especially drawn to the way that she chooses her  fabric and then allows the fabric to do a lot of the work!!!  Here are a few of my favorites….

This was the first quilt that she showed….I love the simple applique and the FANTASTIC quilting!!!!!….._2091584 

This one was quilted first and then painted with Shiva Paintsticks….how cool!!!….

This one shows an excellent use of fabric.  Be sure to click on it to see it larger and look at the black and white inner border……

This one was a simple log cabin block paired with a WILD Kaffe fabric….._2091574 This was by and large my favorite quilt.  Once again the block is simple, but the layout makes it fantastic…….

_2091581 Believe it or not, this is a Double Wedding Ring!!!!  The gradations were absolutely perfect!!!!

_2091582  This piece reminded me of the little quilts that I have been making  (click here to see those), but I really like the setting here…..

_2091591 Regina’s sense of color is wonderful……

Wow! What a privilege to see these fantastic quilts in person. I'm amazed at the one done with paintsticks. Something else to try...
