my last post, the East Cobb show had a great mix of traditional, modern, and art quilts. This little beauty, Sweet Tweets by Taffy McLaughlin, was one of my favorite modern quilts. I love the colors on the white background (how do you keep that clean while you're working?), the whimsy...

Laurie Stoner, from our guild, made this amazing art piece, Barklesque Hillside:
Another Star, Jan Kramer, won a blue ribbon for this unbelievable miniature traditional sampler quilt she calls Mini Me:
Quilts can be modern or arty or complicated, but I always come back to some simple certainties. Blue and yellow, nine patches, playing with value - these will always have a comforting place in my heart. I just adore Mary Goodner's Blooming Nine Patch, and hope to make one of my own some day (even if Jodi says it's a pain.)
