pride-2
Name of Maker: Janet Hartje

This was my entry for the Cherrywood Fabrics Challenge.  Didn't make it but at least I tried.

barns-of-america-3
Name of Maker: NA

This quilt definitely told me how it wanted to be made.  I worked on it off and on over five years.  Finally, a year ago I decided to get her finished.  I did the setting completely different from the pattern.  When the top was finished the gold squares were blank so I made 20 4 1/2" squares, like barn quilts, and appliqued them onto the quilt and it really that little something to this quilt.  It just won Grand Champion at our county fair and was also awarded an Award of Merit by one of the judges who is a national judge. 

barns-of-america-2
Name of Maker: NA

This quilt has been in the works for over 5 years, off and on.  Finally in 2015 I decided to finish the dang thing.  This quilt definitely told me how to make it, and very loudly.  I did the setting very different from the pattern and am thrilled out it turned out.  It just received Grand Champion at our local county fair and will be entered in the Colorado State Fair in 2 weeks.  It also received an Award of Merit from the judge, who is a national judge.  I am very honored and love this quilt.

barns-of-america
Name of Maker: NA

I have had this pattern over 5 years and have worked off and on, but in 2015 I decided to get the dang thing finished.  However, I was stumped as to embroidery.  The pattern called for silk ribbon, which I did not want to attempt, so I decided to use variegated embroidery floss and embellish that way.  I LOVE how this quilt turned out.  You know how a quilt tells you how to make it, this quilt definitely spoke to me and at me, hehe.  I didn't like the setting of the pattern and played around with the blocks with scrap fabrics to play with and come up with this idea.  When I finished the top the gold squares were empty and blah, so it told me to make barn quilt squares, which I appliqued on.  It ended up being a fun quilt.  I am proud to say it just received Grand Champion in our local and also one of the judges is a national judge and she gave it an Award of Merit, to which I am extremely honored.  She will be going to our State Fair in 2 weeks.

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.
