More Quilts from the Vermont Quilt Festival

Look at this wonderful quilt by Barb Vedder! She's a quilter and blogger from Ridgewood, New Jersey, and she's a member of my Empire quilt guild in New York City. She made this quilt "Mother's Garden" in memory of her mother, Catherine Bednar Clarkson, for the 20-year anniversary of her passing.
The quote at the top is from The Color Purple by Alice Walker. This is hand quilted.

I love the colors and designs in this quilt. The workmanship is stunning. That's why I kept taking pictures!

Below, see "Magnolia" by Sue Spargo who was born in Zambia and now lives in Ohio. You can see more of her quilts on her blog. I like how she combines fine workmanship with cheerful improvisation.

Take a look at the beautiful quilting too! Nice job.
