More From VQF

I am away at a retreat this week, so here, at last, are more of the wonderful quilts from the Vermont Quilt Festival.  I know, it’s been 3 months, but they’re still great quilts!  Most are art quilts, meaning they have no likely use to keep anyone warm, but I enjoyed the innovative techniques used in them.

And I did get a little bit done on the triangle quilt this week.  Here it is so far:Triangles-11

I can’t decide whether the light blue is too light or not.  It may be clearer either way when there are more blocks.

  1. Hi Mary, I love the quilts you posted, especially the “Piece of Cake.” How in the world was it pieced? I don’t have your email address, so I’m writing your through the comments. Please don’t post this, but I wanted to ask you how you made out in the floods. I was thinking of you all week and all the friends and family we have in NC and thankfully they are all fine. I can’t imagine losing my home to water or fire. Such devastation is so sad. My husband keeps saying that we live in a “sweet spot” where we are safe from both, hopefully. I haven’t sewn since I was diagnosed with Stage IV kidney disease which was about 4 years ago. Two years of home dialysis and then my hubby gave me a kidney and am feeling better. I am itching to get back but am determined to clean up my sewing room first. Katie is doing well as is John and her children. Jeffrey is 2-1/2 and such a little sweetie. The older they get there are challenges and stress but Katie handles it well though I wish she didn’t have it. Peter will be 12, Mark will be 10 and Claire just turned 8. They grow up so fast. Anyway, thanks for having your blog. I look forward to reading it each week and it helps me to keep the fire burning to start sewing again.

  2. I think the Piece of Cake quilt really is a favorite from the quilts you posted from the show. I love that we post quilts from our areas–giving our quilty acquaintances a chance to see different things from different parts of the country. Thank you!
