heart-for-a-hospice
Name of Maker: Marion Curtis

Artist members of Cambridge Open Studios in the UK were asked to design and make a heart to raise money for a new hospice facility in Cambridge called The Arthur Rank Hospice. The total needed is £7M. The hearts will be on show at our Open Studios event this July then auctioned sometime later in the year. 

This heart is my contribution. The piece is 28" square and made from five fat quarters and some white fabric by the metre.

flower-among-flowers
Name of Maker: Marika Andersson

I made this Quilt for my cousin hwo I spent a lot of weekends and summers with when I was very young. But after her parents divorsed I lost her. Efter bean separat for almost 33 years I found her on Facebook 6 month ago. 

This dog is her beloved heart and her name is Blomma (Flower).

I wanted to express for my cousin Ingela how much I missed her and how much she ment to me by making this wallquilt for her.

She loves it and she almost started cry when I gave it to her. She expressed that this is the most beautiful thing some one ever done for her and given to her.

twilight-2
Name of Maker: Gail Ennoo

This quilt was made for my son and his partner's first baby due in August, 2016. It is a cot size quilt.  They chose the pattern and fabric, I did the work.  We can't wait to welcome this little one into the family.

nuthatch
Name of Maker: Dolores Fegan

This quilt is to represent a postage stamp.  It is a hand painted using procion dye and heavily thread painted quilt.  It is based on a drawing I did of my favorite bird, the white breasted nuthatch.

drawing-nigh
Name of Maker: Betty Jo Tatum

This is the second in my series of quilts related to women down through history who have seen their men go off to war or other dangerous jobs for extended periods.  It is something of a remake of the first in this series "Waiting...".  This time, the woman has her young tween or early teen daughter with her who hasn't seen her father for over a year and she is a little nervous.  I had a very difficult time making the sky.  I painted four pieces, using Setacolor fabric paints and finally chose one and added more paints.  Then I pieced the storm-at-sea part and pieced it together where it turns into the pictorial sea, but I ended up overdying them together after piecing so they melded better.  I nearly quit making this quilt several times along the way, but it is finally finished.  I used over thirty different colors of threads..most of which are variegated. The sea foam is represented by Angelina Fibers.

on-the-wings-of-an-eagle
Name of Maker: Sarah Schultz

On the wings of an Eagle is an original eagle design built on a Bargello pattern flag.  The bird is created with individual feathers that are made with Joan Shay's Petal Play technique.  Every feather is individually sewn and the face is enhanced using Prismacolor pencils.

kaleb-2
Name of Maker: Marcella Brown

This is a hand thread painting of 2 year old Kaleb, a friend's grandson. I have machine quilted, appliqued and used couching on this piece. The gold holly and berries are appliqued. The pom pom on the Santa hat is turkey work, a technique I learned when I was doing crewel embroidery many years ago. There are also two little yellow buttons on his shirt.

Dresden Daisies
Name of Maker: Susan Hilsenbeck

This small art quilt was very loosely inspired by an asymmetric Dresden plate pattern by Lee Monroe. Her pattern has an extra blade, which results in 2 large blades side by side that are the same color. The look is interesting, but also a little odd. I wanted to do something asymmetric using the traditional even number of blades AND I wanted the result to look like the alternating blades were missing, so that you see through to the background. The flowers are paper pieced individually and then appliqued onto the matching background fabric. The background is densely quilted, flower centers are trapunto'ed and beaded to add dimension. The entire thing was a study in 'dimension' -- that is, controlling seam direction, density of quilted, coloring to give a sense of depth.

This is my donation to the SAQA Benefit Auction this year.

canyon-of-my-mind
Name of Maker: Cuauhtemoc Kish

"Canyon of My Mind" is a result of a visit to Page, Arizona. After marveling at the natural wonders within Antelope Canyon I was inspired to create fabric art of my photos from this wonderful journey. This is the first of many more to come. 

bon-chance-mon-ami
Name of Maker: Martha Scott

This pattern designed by Verna Mosquera just called to me. I used all my own fabrics and took the liberty of exchanging the Pink Poodle for the image of my Black Labradoodle Maximus. I had fun choosing fabrics and enbelishments to complement is very french style.

christmas-baskets
Name of Maker: Susan Pepper

This is a paper-pieced block I made for my niece Debbie. It is the first quilt I have ever quilted on my little sewing machine.

back-home-2
Name of Maker: Judy Leathers

Made for the 55th reunion of 1961 Decatur High school graduates. My quilt features photos of Decatur, AL taken in the 60's. The quilt will be auctioned with proceeds going to the class Scholarship fund for graduates of the school. 

fibonacci-sequence
Name of Maker: Carol Ann Freda

I made this negative space quilt using the principals of the Fibonacci sequence. I made a long panel of black, white and the focus fabric, leaving room to add the 1 inch inserts of the solid fabrics in two positions on the strips I cut. I arranged the strips on my design wall, flipped every other one, and shifted them to separate the alignment of the sequence. I then added the solid colored strips.

I love Caryl Bryer Fallert's Fibonacci quilts, whose technique inspired my experimenting with using it to make a negative space quilt.  

washington-dc-2
Name of Maker: Janet Mott

The map is a whole cloth quilt that was made with a printed stabilizer from Haptic Labs.  I painted the water and park areas to add interest and reference to the map.  The finished quilt is stretched across a customer frame that I made with 1 x 2" lumber.  

dear-friends
Name of Maker: Veronica (Bunny) Wood

I took a few classes with Marilyn Bedford and have enjoyed them very much. I deduced to make this quilt of our friends that have been together for over 45 years now and just tied the knot. This was from a photo I too on a cruise we were on together.

flies-in-the-butter
Name of Maker: Kevin Key

I made this quilt top in 2005.  It was made with blue and yellow scraps from my own scrap bag, as well as scraps from fellow quilters, and a few fat quarters.  I paper-pieced it from a pattern from Anita Grossman Solomon.  I FINALLY got around to quilting it because I recently bought a long arm machine, and started with all my old UFO's.  I named the quilt after a song by The Judds.  

glacier-blue-2
Name of Maker: Vickie Van Dyken

This was done at a class in Sedro Wooley, WA.  It won Best of Class and Best of Show for the Quilting at the NW Washington Fair
