Quilt Blocks by Mom Thomas, Incredibly Ugly Fabric by Kay Thomas Hoagland and Irene Thomas

These are small nine patches that these people inherited and didn’t like. They are pieced into the background.

I can’t find the name on this one but I like the way the simple blocks are arranged for a stunning result.

Detail of Dendrology 101 by Karlene Johnson

These aren’t dimensional leaves. There is a piece of black appliqued onto the leaves to be a “shadow”.

I like animal panels and animal print fabrics but I never know what to do with them. Check out a sample of the quilting below.

I love the card trick block. I like the bright polka dots used in this one.

Simple but looks complicated. It is just four patches alternating with solid blocks set on point.
