Quilts are sometimes called eye candy...

Will you show us your most impressive "eye candy?"

This is my most impressive quilt, made as a wedding gift for my daughter and her new husband.

The Rose

Vicky, I don't have anything near the beauty of The Rose but this is something a bit different I did as a mystery that turned out pretty neat.

There should have been a quilt block on the side of that barn!

I haven't made but 3 quilts and I wouldn't consider any of them "eye candy". If I ever finish the last few blocks (I'm not sure which ones to do!!) of my Baltimore Album quilt, I "hope" it will be eye candy. I'm very happy with the individual blocks and I get plenty of compliments on them. So, we'll see.....

Rosa, your quilt reminds me very much of my Baltimore Album quilt. Absolutely beautiful!!

Sharon, your quilt is beautiful, too. Did you do the show flakes in hand applique? I love doing those!! Is the bottom paper piecing?

All of my impressive "eye candy" quilts are still in my head. But, I do enjoy seeing others!

This was a quilt made for a friend with cancer a few years ago (he is in remission now, and it looks very good!). It was a simple pattern, but I like the way it turned out.

Can't compete with that, Vicky. It is just amazing.

It's hard to choose one since none are that good. But, I think the one most people look twice at is my granddaughter's monster quilt, needleturn applique with embellishments.

I dont' think I have anything that really qualifies as eye candy. Maybe the Christmas wallhanging I did a couple years ago but that's more because of the Laurel Burch panel than because of anything I did to it. So I'm going to use this Christmas quilt as my example instead.

toolgranny, do you have a pattern for that? I know a few kids that would love that quilt!

Robbi, I'm sure this was posted somewhere in the past. Sue Garman did the pattern but it was hard to find. It calls out for a light background but I saw this made with dark background in a shop in Denver. They did it as a block of the month. I just bought all twelve.

Here is a link that might be useful: Sue Garman's Monster patterns

Robbi, It was all regular piecing.

Wouldn't call it my favorite but most people liked it.
