I was thinking today about the various styles of quilts. A quick Google search of quilt images will come up with thousands of examples. Some quilters favor a specific color palate, some are drawn to applique or primitive patterns or traditional or reproductions, but most quilters have a common thread that runs through all their work. So what is mine? If you look at the picture above you might think I favor cool colors and non-traditional patterns but that is not always true.
I guess for me it is hand quilting. I was on a roll for quite a while of doing only hand quilting of vintage and antique quilt tops but I have been enjoying adding in some new quilts as well and I know that I will continue to enjoy both old and new and quilts in many styles and from many eras. The common thread for me or my “style” is hand quilting.
Here are some pictures of some of the quilts I have made, each one different, but hand quilting is the common thread. (click to enlarge)
all different….but in some ways all the same…so that is my “style”
