I'm voting for Heather Jones. I love them all and couldn't decide so I made my kids pick :). Great job everyone they are gorgeous quilts!!!!

Nicole said...

Each quilt is just lovely, but I think I have to choose Quilt Dad's design. Something about how bright and saturated the colors look has got me swooning over that one the most!

"Big Top" by Faith Jones. They are all stunning. I think it was the balance of white and stunning use of color.

Julie said...

"Big Top" by Faith Jones is my choice. They are all stunning, but I love her use of white and negative space. The solids she chose, and use of them, show them off beautifully. It make a statement without hitting you over the head.

Faith Jones for sure! Out of all the entries, I find it the most inspiring. Beautifully done.

Claudia said...

Quilt Dad. Love the bold use of color.

Marcia R said...

These quilts are really inspiring. I am impressed with all of them, but the one that I kept thinking I would want to have and/or make myself is Heather's. I've never really loved the traditional pineapple pattern, so I see this as a success!!

Anonymous said...

Faith's quilt, with its uncluttered design and abundance of negative space wins my vote, though all the quilts are gorgeous!

Elizabeth_T said...

They are all absolutely wonderful. My vote goes to Quilt Dad. Just love the way the fabrics flow on that one.

modernmanson said...

It was very hard to choose. As much as I love the Modern Traditional Improv Pineapple from Heather Jones I think Latifah's Buzzed Birds Quilt speaks so much to the modern quilt movement. So awesome! Good job everyone.

Vikie said...

I find the Fresh Lemons Quilt - Faith Jones really the most beautiful

They are so clever, its difficult to pick just one but I love howquilt dad solved his problemof not quite enough fabric by adding pops of patterned fabrics, it looks beautiful and is my favorite.

Gabrielle Robles said...

This is so hard to choose only one. I think Lee's is my favorite.

Adele said...

Okay, so I'm going with Quilt Dad. That little bit of print fabric really makes the solids pop. Tough decision, though; they are all great!

Quilt Engineer!

Zen Zeu said...

I vote for Quilt Dad. His quilt is so fresh, lively and original!

Marianne said...

These are marvelous quilts. My vote is for Quilt Dad, John Adams. His design seemed so original, and varied from popular style. The colors felt free, as unorganized as a tangled maypole dance. I thought it was the most creative.

I really liked the M Bohr and Lee Hemrick designs. They drew me to their colors and design, and I would love to make either of them.

Jeanine said...

I wasn't sure about Faith's quilt when she first started showing the pictures, but I was blown away when I saw it all put together. I absolutely love it!

Diane said...

absolutely love Freshly Pieced - Lee Heinrich, it's color choices, flow and motion are wonderful!

Annabel said...

Big Top (Fresh Lemons/Faith Jones) is my favorite. (It's too bad the photo chosen to display it is so far away--the pictures on her blog who it off much better IMO.) I do love what each and every quilter has done with these gorgeous fabrics!

PegP said...

Wow thone are all fabulous quilts. But my vote is for Faith Jones from Fresh Lemons.

Bold and amazing is my choice - Quilt Dad's. I came over from his blog thinking I would look, but the odds were against voting for his even though I loved it. So many beautiful quilts but the brilliant boldness of his quilt wouldn't let me vote for any other. It is an in your face quilt with interesting details.

I have followed a number of these quilts on bloglovin, there is one that stood out for me. I have been drooling over John MaAdams from his first block. It is a combination of his color and placement choices. He transformed the original design.
