"Decorating with Small Quilts" Part 1


Jo Morton gave a lecture during "Road to California" on "Decorating with Small Quilts". She displayed wonderful quilts and then gave a slide presentation on decorating your home with them. Here are a few of the larger quilts that she showed:

"Picken's Lane"

"Indigo Moment"

"Midnight Garden"

"Patriotic Strippy Stars"

And check out the back...great idea for a label!

"Blue Bayou"

After Jo realized that the border was not mathematically correct, the border units do not line up with the points of the block, she redrafted it and made...
"Brown Bayou"

Next post will show Jo's "small" quilts and pressing techniques she uses in making them!
