Feast for the Eyes

I went to the show of Freddy Moran collage quilts at La Conner Quilt Museum yesterday.
WOW!  She is so very inspiring.  


Inspired by Edrica Huws, Freddy began making collage quilts when she turned 80.
She applies fabric pieces with a glue stick, 
and Judy Irish stitches them on with her playful quilting.
Enjoy the show!







































Are you itching to get out your scraps and glue stick?  I am!

Very artistic. I like the 15th picture from the top...the trees. I envy those who can create their own art.

WOW - Freddy's quilts may be inspired by Edrica Huws - but looking at what Freddy did is like stepping into that moment when the Kansas-colored movie turns to **technicolor** - and you're in OZ! So inspiring! Thanks for the treat. (how do I bookmark this post?)
