dashing-hearts
Name of Maker: Sue Jennings

I love medallion quilts.  I think it is because I find multiple borders make a quilt interesting.  I also enjoy the math and the challenge of getting everything to fit.  This is fairly small, but was great fun to make.  I used some fabric I had in my stash.  I haven't decided whether to use it as a table topper or a wall hanging.

night-blooms-2
Name of Maker: Linda Rinehard

This is my interpretation of the pattern Forever Blooming by Pearl Pereira of P3 Designs.  She first offered this pattern in monthly installments before publishing it.  The pattern calls for a light background, but I thought the deep navy really made the colors come out.  The background is a navy batik with white spots, that reminds me of stars - hence the name Night Blooms.  This quilt won Best of Show at our local quilt guild and the Oklahoma State Fair in 2015.

butterflies-wholecloth
Name of Maker: Sue Jennings

The tablecloth I used for this project was an eBay purchase.  It had a hole near the center and looked pretty sorry for itself.  It did have some pretty butterfly motifs on it, and as I was trying to teach myself to FMQ, so thought that if it was a disaster, it would not be the end of the world.  There was a lot of white space to fill, so I used some Cindy Needham quilting stencils and drew the flowers and vines freehand on the top.  I used some purchased lace butterflies to hide the hole in the middle of the quilt.  It was great fun to do.

ferns-in-spring
Name of Maker: Sue Jennings

My resolution last year was to learn to FMQ.  This was a practice piece.  I have some lovely ferns in my garden and particularly love them when the fronds are unfurling.  I used Kaffe Fassett Shot Cotton and Hobbs Tuscany wool batting.

the-deer-ate-my-pear
Name of Maker: Judith Austin

A late frost killed all the blossoms on our pear tree – except for one.   One lone pear survived the frost. Every day after work, my husband walked down to the garden to see that pear grow and ripen.  One day he announced, “I think that pear will be ready to pick tomorrow.”

The next day he walked out to the pear tree to pick the pear, but it was gone! ...  And there were deer tracks under the tree!   I said, "I expect you are mad at the deer for eating that pear you have been waiting for all summer."      He replied, "No, they have to eat too.”  

However, the next year he put up a fence!

I adapted McKenna Ryan's pattern "Beneath the Boughs" to illustrate our little story. 

egret-in-courtship-display
Name of Maker: Peg Weschke

Piecing for background done by just cutting and sewing fabric strips together and then cutting them up and sewing again and again.  Idea was to capture look of a camera being focused on bird with background blurred - which is the way the source photo looked.  Birds body is pieced from dupioni silk and then painted with Caran D'Ache crayons.  The quilting uses 60 weight for the bird and background and 12 weight to denote the flying feathers off the silk stems.
