Unique Treats

There were some pretty unique and amazing quilts at HQMS.  They used techniques I had not seen before or in ways that I had not thought of using.  I wanted to share a few of them with you today.  First this fun beach quilt.
 The artist had used netting to enclose tiny shells.  It was the perfect touch.  I loved the effect.
 This quilt used reverse applique.
 I've been toying with the idea to do some of this and seeing this piece may have moved that idea further up the bucket list.
 These festive kites had zipper teeth around the edge to give them dimension.  Sadly my close up shot was too blurry to show you.
Last but defiantly not least was this awesome horse quilt made out of leather.  The picture in no way does it justice.  It was amazing!

  3. Thanks for sharing your photos. I would love to see the leather piece in person. Bizarrely enough, my first attempt at appliqué was using leather (to repair a tear in a leather backpack) ... long before I started quilting.
