Karla Alexander: Trunk Show


During the Red Onion Class, Karla Alexander gave us a mini - trunk show. Her work is beautiful and I wish I would have taken a picture of every quilt she showed us.

This first quilt is a variation of the quilt we worked on in class. It also hung in the show.




Below is the variation we worked from, they don't look like the same quilt do they?




Most of the rest of these were from her book Stack a New Deck: More Great Quilts in 4 Easy Steps

I like this one, it's done in black and white and greens. Do you see the little lady bugs?









Cheers,

Dionne

Your blocks in the last post are amazing. Thanks for showing her trunk show - its fun to see how the blocks look in the finished quilts: color contrast really makes the quilts look different!

I've only gotten to shows for one day visits so I've never gotten to take a class-looks like you had a great experience.

I just love Karla Alexander. I met her at quilt market in 2003. She was very personable and funny. Her quilts are just beautiful. Looks like you had a great time in class too!
