A Quilter’s Table Blog and Other Quilty Inspirations
I am really, really enjoying this blog and highly recommend it to you.
Take a look?
AND, I just bought this book by Sajata Shah, which I am also really enjoying. Sajata is an improv, modern quilter who has been influenced by the Gee’s Bend quilters, fiber work in her native India, and fiber work in Africa. Like many of the modern quilters, she is carving out a place that blends traditional quilts with modern quilting. Much of her work, like the quilt on the cover, uses controlled free-form methods that are exciting and lively.
Apparently Sajata holds a workshop where some of the modern quilters that I like (see on Instagram #beesewcial) gather. Capitola quilter (see her work on Instagram) attended a gathering where participants worked on Sajata’s version of a Kaladiscope quilt called “Organized Chaos” (Instagram hashtag #organizedchaosquilt).
I’ve fallen in love with Capitola’s version—as I do with most, if not all, of her work.
I’ll probably be looking for kaladiscope quilt block patterns down the road. Ummmm….when I finish current projects.

Wow Louisa! That sunset improv quilt is stunning. So much fun and really doesn’t look that hard to do. I know I will see something like this on your design wall this Winter.

Thanks for sharing all of these quilters. Honestly, with no quilt guild meetings and lectures, no shows, it can be a little boring, but popping around to these other blogs is very inspiring. I love the technique Debbie shared in her Vista Toscana quilt. The precise placement of her binding color changes is amazing.
I agree with all you say here. I am following Debbie’s blog now. I love her work. Are you on Instagram? It is easy to follow quilters you like on that platform.
Yes I am… Instagram -MaryDeeter. Mostly I cross post a photo from my blog with a link
