Scottish Quilt Championships - part 3

Here are two quilts that weren't in the competition.  The first was made from my 'Japanese Taupe Quilt Blocks' book and is quilt as you go.  Amazing!  A lot of the blocks look so like the ones I made, it gives me a real sense of deja vu!

The second quilt is an antique Log Cabin owned by Gilly Thomson of Kekfesto Cotton, the Hungarian blue print cotton store.  It has a great selection of Turkey Red prints and shirtings - makes me want to make the Turkey Red Log Cabin I've been planning for years!

Many of the dark blue fabrics are so similar to Gilly's cottons, I can see why she had to have this quilt!  It was recently shown at Festival of Quilts, in the Quilters' Guild's Traditional Group's exhibit.

Both quilts are just stunning in their own ways. I will have to check out the link for Gilly's shop.
