So I went to the Asheville Quilt Guild’s annual show, which usually has lots of inspiration. There were many nice quilts, but two quilt makers stood out, in my opinion.
The first is Diana Ramsay, whom I know from the Modern Quilt Guild, which used to exist in Asheville. Here are her quilts:
Although I don’t know Linda Fiedler, I was very impressed by her quilts, as well:
The guild’s gift shop always has something I wish I had made, and this year it was a little pyramid bag. Of course I bought it.
I’ve always liked pyramid bags, which I first saw years ago in a craft store in Berea, Kentucky. I had a pattern to make one, but it seemed pretty complex. The internet to the rescue! I found several sets of instructions and even videos. Here are the instructions I used:
And here is the first set of pyramids.
They were quick and easy! Do I hear a Christmas gift idea?
Very impressive quilts. I especially liked Fascinating Rhythm and Moonglow.
Thanks for the link to the pyramid pouches. I think they are perfect for gifts.
“Modern quiltguild which used to exist in Ashville…” Oh my! Gone or moved? Replaced?
I really like the mix of circles and lines in Moonglow.
Fell apart due to “strong personalities”. The one in Franklin (NC), nearer my home, is doing well, however.
Thank you for sharing these impressive quilts from the Asheville Quilt Show. Your family pf pyramid pouches are adorable.
Thanks for visiting 😊
Of course, wonderful eye-candy for me to see! Thanks for the Quilt Show shots.
Those pouches offer an opportunity to brush up on zipper-installation skills without messing up a crucial garment – will have to try out that pattern. Little cuties, they are!
And after the first one, those pyramid pouches took only about an hour each 😃
Amazing quilts from the show – wow!
Love the pyramid bags! The cartoon stripe one is especially adorable!
It’s always a nice show 🙂
Fun to see these quilts. I have a friend who making one similar to that first one–wonder if she got her inspiration out of the air, of if she saw this? I love your little pyramid bags–will bookmark that for future reference, for sure!
