There were some fantastic quilts (as always) at AQS Quiltweek in Charleston, SC. Charleston was a new location and venue for the show and it was wonderful. Convenient hotels and lots of great eateries in the area made it a fun destination. Charleston features history, shopping and beaches as well. The quilt show was the number one attraction and it did not disappoint. I noticed some unusual quilts with unusually edgy edges. These quilts had some unique edge treatments that really caught my eye, and of course I have to share them with you.
Here’s a beautiful example of a traditional edge treatment. This gorgeous quilt has nice straight sides and perfect square corners.
This masterpiece was the first one to catch my eye with its unusual outer shape.
Karen’s handsome quilt has perfectly symmetrical scallops. Traditional, but a step away from straight edges.
The lovely large scallops on Simone’s wholecloth compliment and enhance her enchanting quilting.
Gentle undulations are a variation of scallops on this beauty.
The edges of this quilt follow the interesting openings that give this delicate quilt its name.
Aline and Natasha took scallops to a whole new level!
Amoeba in Pink is perfect with its asymmetrical scallops that define the undefinable shape of an amoeba.
Kathleen took this edgy edges concept to the extreme.
So if you’re looking to add some edginess to your next quilt, hopefully you can take a little inspiration from these examples. Quilt shows are the best place to get new ideas!
