spiral-galaxy-number-3
Name of Maker: Betty Jo Tatum

This is my third attempt to make a quilt inspired by the gorgeous Spiral Galaxies pictured in NASA's website.  Rather than try to represent a specific spiral galaxy, I chose several of their non-copyrighted photographs of different spirals to pattern my spiral galaxy after.  This is a whole cloth quilt using Angelina Fibers representing the gas clouds, rusty brown free motion embroidery to show the rusty colored spiral of dust that accompanies these galaxies, and, of course, different sizes and colors of hot fix crystals for the stars that such star birthing galaxies produce.  The entire quilt is covered with black nylon veiling, which gives the Angelina Fibers stability by the time they are quilted.  The quilting is tightly spiraled and fairly organized in the center and as it spirals out, the spiral gets looser and less organized with bubbles and smaller spirals.  This is my third deep space quilt using Angelina Fibers.  I plan on continuing this series for another seven quilts at least.

Decision Tree
Name of Maker: Randa Mulford

Approaching an opportunity to retire (and the age for wearing purple and red!), I realized that life is really a series of decisions. Some have trivial consequences, while others are more significant, each an opportunity. Every "leaf" on the quilted tree represents a decision or opportunity.

I began this quilt in a workshop with Rosalie Dace at Art Quilt Tahoe.

Slices of Opulence
Name of Maker: Randa Mulford

This quilt is adapted from Tomoko Tohno’s “Orange Range” pattern, and draws on my beautiful (but out of print) collection of Paula Nadelstern “Opulence” prints. While Tohno’s blocks had pieced centers, I redrafted the pattern so I could feature the radiating medallions, as well as the different colorways, within the limits of my available stash.

panda-monium
Name of Maker: Barbara Campbell

Designed using a panel of fabric designed by Alfred Shaheen. This was done as a challenge for the April 2016 Machine Quilter's Expo in Manchester, NH. The exhibit showcased many different panel designs all quilted and finished differently according to the designer's vision. I chose to applique velour pandas and green bamboo leaves onto the black & white bamboo panel. Background quilting mimics bamboo stalks & leaves. Though I used a preprinted panel, I designed the rest of the quilt.

nativity-tree-skirt

this quilt is an original design tree-skirt, except for the Angels, baby Jesus, etc & etc. It has 8 triangle panels , each having a fabric picture of the typical characters of the nativity scene. 

dancefloor-orlando

"Dance floor: Orlando" is a tribute to the fallen victims of the recent Orlando massacre. It was designed so that we never forget these innocent victims.

jaxon-baby-quilt
Name of Maker: Enice Burke

Baby quilt, materials were picked by his mother to match his room colors. I made the blocks to best fit the fabric 

winter-walk
Name of Maker: EDIE PHILLIPS

This is the forth in my series of confetti pieced seasonal quilts. I took a picture of my husband and our Bernese mountain dogs on the beach.  I changed the season and added our home. In the tree line I used dryer sheets to get the foggy look. Again there is bags and bags of confetti pieces . I quilted the whole thing with embroidery threads. can you find the rabbit and deer?

all-roads-lead-to-rome
Name of Maker: Marion Dowell

This was made for my Italian Exchange Student.  The colors are his favorites.  Some of the blocks have meaning:  Card Trick, because he liked to play cards and he could do card tricks, Jacob's Ladder because that is my husband's name, Marion's Choice because that is my name, Cat's Cradle because the cat loved being in his room.  I also found some blocks entitled Roman Stripe, Roman Cross, and Italian Tiles.  He is a typical Italian:  he was appalled not only that we put pineapple in pizza, but also hamburgers, chicken burgers, roast ham...so there was no choice but to put 4 large Pineapple blocks in the corners!

flag-quilt-2
Name of Maker: Sharon Cumiskey

I designed this quilt based on a Missouri Star  wall hanging by Jenny Doan.  I wanted it to be larger and more accurately represent Old Glory.  I used math to determine the best size trapezoid template to give me the overall proportions.  I used small white trapezoids to be suggestive of stars instead of using real stars.

I intended it to be for the Quilts of Valor program, but it is too big.  I will be gifting it to a Vietnam Vet who still suffers today from injuries sustained almost 50 years ago.
