"Decorating with Small Quilts" Part 2

Jo Morton gave a slide presentation of decorating with quilts in your home. Whether you fold a quilt and put it at the bottom of your bed or have a small quilt as a center piece on your dining room table, it all looks fabulous! Jo's slides showed us how you can add interest to your decorating just by adding a small quilt.
Here are some of her small quilts...
"Nina's Doll Quilt #1"

"Cabin Corners"

"Courthouse Steps with Stars"

"Bittersweet" Four Patch Variation

"Bittersweet" Four Patch Variation using wovens

"Salem" Four Patch Variation

Doll Quilt -  48 scrappy squares

Sampler Doll Quilt

Doll Quilt - Half Square Triangles on Point

Here's Jo!

I throughly enjoyed Jo's lecture! Her quilts are gorgeous and to have the opportunity to see them "up close and personal" was fantastic... this week will certainly go done in my memory book of great times!
