ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " Q "



QUILTS...QUALITY AND QUIRKY



This is the most original Quilt I have ever seen. A Quilt made out of Barbie dolls mounted in shadow box squares. We saw the beautiful Quilts at the California State Fair this summer.



I thought this was a Quirky shot that made my son and I laugh as we looked at this scene. Are we going to win the newspaper reading man or that Quality Quilt behind him?
Don't forget to enlarge the pictures to enjoy the detail.

Oh, I love your post for the day! The quilts are delightful, the Barbie one, very interesting, but the last shot broke me up!! I think I'd prefer to win the quilt! Hope that's what they meant!!

Have a great day!

quality, quirky quilts, indeed.

Rinkly Rimes said...

That Barbie quilt looks rather uncomfortable for a bed!

MedaM said...

This is really beautiful and interesting post. I like the pattern on the first photo very much but a quilt made out of Barbie dolls is excellent indeed. I enlarged the photo and enjoyed in every doll; each in different dress and space and situation. I've never seen this before. Thanks for sharing!

Beverly said...

Too funny...

My daughter Sarah could probably make a quilt out of her Barbies. She probably has enough.

That really is some quilt. I have not seen anything like it before today.

Hildred and Charles said...

Love quilts, - I'm going to be a quilter in my next life! I have to go back and really study the Barbie Doll quilt, - thank you for a smile.

Mara said...

What would you do with a newspaper reading man when you win him? And where would you put him? Fantastic photos, love the quilts, great Q!

Anna said...

A Barbie quilt - now that's quite unique. Quilt for me rather than man :)

Joy said...

Barbie heaven for a little girl. I like an enthusiast, what amazing detail in that quilt. Fascinating.
A most entertaining post.

Beautiful Quilts for a nice Q post.

Beverley Baird said...

What an unusual quilt! Great shots. Would have made for a very interesting day.

Carolyn Ford said...

Too cute! I, also, hope you don't win the man but, rather the quilt! Or...maybe the man will win the quilt? Whatever...too quirky and fun!

What a delicious post! I can't imagine the Barbie quilt. And quirky is wildly funny!

magiceye said...

Paula Scott said...

And, if you did win him, would you want to give him back???
Great shots! I love those quilts!
Quirky indeed!

Sandra said...

My QUICK comment! like the quilt, love the quirky man and newspaper shot

Jay said...

Hahahaha! I think they'd sell more tickets to the quilt raffle!! Sorry, newspaper man, but it's true. LOL!

The first quilt is stunning. The Barbie doll quilt? Not really a proper quilt to me.

Kate said...

Sue, the quilts are magnificent. RuneE's comment is amusing yet I feel badly for that overweight person.

So it's come to this... said...

Wow what beautiful quilts! This inspires me. I just got a new sewing machine. hmmm may have to see what I can do!
Thanks for the post.

Quilts are so interesting.
I enjoy the history of quilts and Barbie is part of our history!
Fun Q post.

Cute post.

You are right - that Barbie doll quilt is most unique. The first one is beautiful!

Wow That really is a strange quilt. Not one you would want to cuddle up under.

Between Barbie and "win me" I'm loving this post!

Rose said...

The Barbie quilt is quite interesting, but the first one is absolutely beautiful! I love all the intricate stitching. I do hope you didn't win Mr. Newspaper Man:)

Amy said...

Love the quilts! When I looked closely at the Barbie quilt all I could think of is how would you dust it?

The last "quirky" shot made me laugh - if he only knew!

Merisi said...

Quilt and quirky in one image,
now that is quality! :-)))

Had a good laugh about that last one and the Barbie doll quilt is exquisite, such creativity. Thank you for sharing this with us!

Would you believe me when I tell you that I am looking at letters differently since I know you? I photographed a P today, we'll see when I find a way to use it in one of my posts. ;.)

Dragonstar said...

What an incredible quilt that second one is! A quality post this, and thanks for visiting mine.

John Roberts said...

Uh, I think I'll take the quilt.
