A Crazy Inspiration

Did I mention that this years La Grange quilt show featured crazy quilts??? Well, in case I did not they did! They had a display of antique crazy quilts! There were not very many but look how gorgeous the one on the bed was! I made sure to take lots of inspiration pictures!

The peacock feathers! This quilt has some stunning peacock feathers!

The awesome sunflower!!

I tried to get a good picture of this motif. I put it up any way I thought that it was just beautiful!

An awesome silkie!

The fan is just stunning!

To just dream of making something this beautiful! Just looking at these pictures makes the inspiration flow!
I still have more pictures of other great quilts. I will post more soon.

Stunning vintage cq! There are so many excellent examples of motifs; they are all breathtaking. However, I was drawn to the peacock feathers - an simply awesome jaw-dropping quilt! Lucky you are to have seen it in person!

The motifs are so big and bold in this quilt. And the maker certainly wasn't afraid to use some color! Wonderful quilt!
