Pin It Weekly #101

Quilts from Cindy Berg's "Quilts I Made" board.  She's an accomplished quilter, don't you agree?

Shine On

Alayna's quilt - Front

Tristan's "Mustang Quilt" completed in 2011.

Blue and Cream Queen Sized Quilt I made finished in 2006.

Red, White and Blue Patriotic Quilt,.   Hand quilted - March 2007

These are from one of many boards that Laila Nelson has.  She's organized them into about 75 boards for every conceivable type (ie. Dresdens, wedges, moderns) and another 25 or so boards for quilting styles.  And then, she has boards for other types of sewing.  My favorite is her "Quilt Studio Ideas" but her organizational system is unreal!

Bill Kerr quilt - it's the stripes that make this quilt.

The boards that are curated by Thorine are eclectic and somewhat well organized.  Quilt boards are divided into color, theme, color combination and other subcategories.  However, they are mixed in with other boards which makes figuring out the system more difficult and, for me at least, more distracting.  One of my favorites is a board on fabric folding.  Here are a few pins from that board.

Enci Toth has an interesting Pinterest site.  She's from Hungary, so I can't read any of the board titles, but they are easy enough to figure out, thanks to the photos.  A board titled, "Varrós ötletek" translated to "various ideas" on Google translator.
