In The Style of Freddy Moran


Last Tuesday Tom and I attended a meeting of the Joplin Town and Country Quilters. Linda Jenkins of Owasso, OK presented a wonderful trunk show that she calls "In the Style of Freddy Moran".  Linda started quilting after taking a class with her daughter not that long ago. 

Shortly thereafter she took another class from Freddy Moran who is known for her fun style of design and exuberant use of colors.  The rest, as they say, is history, and Linda has been turning out  bright and beautiful quilts in Freddy's style ever since.  She has also become close friends with Freddy and has taken many cruises and workshops with her.

This quilt, made by Freddy and quilted by Kathy Sandbach, was presented to Linda when she moved into her new home in OK.
I hope you'll enjoy this slideshow of Linda's quilts








I do not know why this slideshow is not working. When I preview my post it works fine, but after I actually post it, it doesn't work. You can, however click on the "view all" that is showing and it will direct you to my Photobucket album that has all of the pictures of Linda's trunk show. At some point I hope I can figure out what the problem is.

Edit later:  The slideshow seems to work for some and not others (including me).  I'm guessing it has something to do with individual browsers and internet settings although slideshows in earlier posts are working.  Some are..some aren't and I'm not bright enough to figure out the difference.

Mary,
I love Freddy Moran- She has such a great sense of color and her quilts have such exuberance about them.
I have both of her and Gwen Marston's books and I bought mostly to be inspired and lifted up by the color on the pages. There quilts are so funky to look at- one day I am going to make one or more of their designs.
The slide show is working again.
Regards,
Anna

Those quilts are beautiful, thanks for the show. Loved your string blocks in the earlier post, you obviously were busy on NQD. I did not manage to sit down once to sew that day, but today has been productive.

I made five blocks for Japan and cut out loads of Logs for my guilds charity project.
