Now that daylight savings time has started, we all have an extra hour of sunlight.  Why not make a really difficult quilt with that extra time?

Jeanette Walton‘s Not Fast Food will give you inspiration. This is an amazing quilt.

Not Fast Food recently won a Blue Ribbon in the East Cobb Quilt Show.

The  quilt of the week in the September 20, 2009 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter  was Andrew M. Cobb, Esq. It was created by Maxine Moore.

According to Maxine, this quilt was made for a special young man who is going to college to become an attorney. His favorite colors are red and black, and Maxine took it from there.

She chose a pattern called Bloomin’ Bricks by Seams and Dreams because the pattern is a srong, masculine pattern when done in appropriate fabrics. Maxine pieced and machine quilted the quilt.

With such a beautiful quilt to cover him over with love, I know Andrew will be very successful in his chosen profession.

Several African American quilters exhibited their quilts at the bi-annual East Cobb Quilt Show which closed today. Although the show is known to place a heavy emphasis on traditional  quilts, the show is open to all genres of quilts.  It is a juried and judged show.

One of the most striking quilts in the show which  featured approximately 400 quilts was Heritage by Albertha Brown of Douglasville, GA.  It earned a ribbon in its category.

Other African American quilters with quilts in the show included Maxine Moore, Jeanette Walton and O.V. Brantley.

Congratulations to each of these ladies for sharing their unique perspective on quilting with others.
