Georgie's recent visit gave us the opportunity to see her exquisite Chuck Nohara quilt up close.
Georgie and her sister Phyl each made one in classes with Lorena Uriarte, choosing a manageable number of blocks from the 2001 in Chuck Nohara's book, 2001 Nouveaux Blocs de Patchwork.
Have they inspired some of our members, perhaps?
| Georgie's quilt is mostly hand pieced, made up of 64 blocks, |
eleventy hundred tiny, precise sashing blocks and that
gloriously spiky border!
|The border is foundation paper pieced, and |
include about 1500 spikes!
|The strips in the tiny pieced sashing finish at 3/4" !|
|Each block is different ...|
|Georgie didn't count them, but can you imagine how |
many different fabrics she has used?
|The blocks are about 6" finished - all those |
minute clam shells!
|An original block Georgie designed to re[resent |
her rural and ocean views from home.
|Tiny moons over the mountain!|
|Straight and curved piecing, applique, foundation piecing |
- this quilt this quilt has it all.
