I wish I would have written down some of the details on this version of the Civil War Bride quilt. This version has been modified to include a special story and a couple of grooms - both of which met an untimely demise at the hand of the bride. Their story is captured on a block in the bottom row. It was hilarious and quite creative!
This is one of Nadine's patterns - from the first year, I think. Beautiful colors!
And yet another gorgeous collection of Baltimore blocks...
Nadine shared a quilt in progress, created from a number of class samples she's done over the past few years.
And then there was the Auntie Green challenge. I am in love with this quilt! Two years ago one of the Australians challenged several BOTP participants to create their own interpretation of the Auntie Green quilt based on a pattern of the center medallion published in Australian Patchwork and Quilting. Nancy Kerns made hers smaller than the original:
The quilts varied in size - several were bed-sized while others were large wall hangings (or bed quilts in progress, perhaps?).
Here's one of the big ones - I think they said this was completed in less than a year. Wow!
It's so inspiring to see all of the incredible work! More to come on BOTP - I'll share a bit about my class with Nancy Kerns in my next post.
