black-noise
Name of Maker: Marie Butler

In spring 2016, I took a course called "Art, Activism, and Social Justice" at Texas Woman's University where I live. For the final project we had the option of making an art piece accompanied by a six-page essay on a social issue that continues to plague the United States. My paper had to do with patriarchal tactics used to silence women throughout the development of this country. This is the quilt I made to accompany the writing. The center is composed of a dimensional screaming face oozing from the background of the quilt. Within her mouth is written the word "silence." Quilted within the black borders of the background are the titles of books written by African American women from the '30s to today. The point...even with the male-dominated rule, women have been speaking. 

my-fairy-garden
Name of Maker: Joan Brudahl Gale

This is a wool applique quilted wall hanging that I made after taking a class from Sue Spargo in the summer of 2015. It started as a depiction of my little fairy garden, but I just couldn't stop adding to it. There are five fairies who depict my grandchildren as fairies. Check out the cat peeking from behind the upturned garden pots on the lower right. Over by the tree on the left you'll see Snow White. I collect memorabilia that depicting so her and they dwarfs and just couldn't do this piece without her. I feel that this is one of the most enjoyable and best pieces I've ever done.

bad-hair-day
Name of Maker: Susan Hammon

The Gateway Quilt Guild in Merced, CA has a "challenge fabric" contest each  year.  The quilts are displayed at our annual quilt airing held in May of each year.  The members vote and the winner receives a prize.  My quilt won 1st place this year.  My son-in-law has the "hUE" Hair Salon in town and the quilt will be hung in his shop.  It was really fun to do something completely different from what I usually do.

floral-yo-yos
Name of Maker: Mona Craig

I had loads of left over scraps and any size suitable of making a yo-yo the pile grew- so made up a quillt with vases of flowers -   If I remember there are over 300 yo-yos-

I have lost "precision" nowadays but do not care anymore about that, my quilting is not my forte and I put this quilt together row by row if I remember easier to handle the size

auroraq
Name of Maker: Bonnie Cauffman

After a trip to Fairbanks I felt compelled to capture the aspens and the Northern Lights.

peek-a-book
Name of Maker: Georgia Andrews

Peekaboo31.5x26.5Jan16

"Peek-a-Boo" - resident bandit (raccoon) in his ivy den. Originally designed art quilt constructed of new cottons, mixed recycled fabrics and crafting felt. 95 free-motion stitched ivy leaves. Shown in 2016 Victoria Quilters' Guild Show "Colour in Motion" - Georgia Andrews, Fêteshui Studio - 2016.

garden-of-paradise
Name of Maker: Dasha Korolova

This quilt is made for the exhibition "Patchwork Garden". I love to combine traditional blocks with applications. In this work I used my favorite shades of colors - green, yellow, orange, brown.

sunlight-in-the-forest
Name of Maker: Pat Durbin

On a lovely day-- the forest is enchanting.  This bright scene called to me to make a quilt.  It was experimental in that I decided to do panels.  It seemed like I'd be able to display it in different sized areas, but in reality I haven't ever taken the panels apart.

It has been a successful quilt in that it has won prizes in many of the places it has been displayed and has been published as well.  It's nice when a quilt is appreciated by others.

kaleidoscope-2
Name of Maker: Shirley Hobenshield

Ricky Tims Kool Kaleidoscope bordered with Margaret Miller's AnglePlay.  All batiks. Freehand machine quilted.

the-flaming-pearl
Name of Maker: Jan Beckert

For a wedding gift, my son and his wife requested a red quilt with a dragon.  This is the quilt I designed for them. It is  machine appliqué, satin-stitched onto a pieced background.  It arrived about two years late, but they loved it...my daughter-in-law cried when she opened it!

Tantalizing-Teal
Name of Maker: Jackie O'Laughlin

The challenge of this quilt was to make it entirely from my stash except for the background. I ended up adding 3 fabrics for the border.  The beauty of Erin Underwood's Diamond Star is in the construction that used no "Y" seams. It went together very easily.  The large open areas in the background gave quilter, Sheri Zalar, room to work her magic with her longarm.  She used both computerized and hand guided original quilting designs. 

a-room-with-a-view
Name of Maker: R. Joyce Harrison

Made as a gift for John and Diana Osborne and their new cabin. The idea for this wall quilt was inspired by their view of the San Pedro River Valley. I imagined their view of sunrise over the valley. (I forgot my camera).

This wall quilt was the focus of a class with the "awesome" Rose Hughes, January 2016 thru the Tucson Quilter's Guild workshops. It also showed at the Tucson Quilt Fiesta in Feb. 2016 as one of many class project examples offered thru the guild.

roses-for-betty-2
Name of Maker: Diane Null

This quilt was made in honor of my mother Betty who lost her battle to cancer. At this time of year with Mother's Day approaching I always think fondly of her and her love for bright colors.

sammy-s-pizza
Name of Maker: Annie Isakson

A scrap quilt. It is strip pieced and when I was cutting out the wedges to sew them together my 3 year old grandson thought they were pieces of wedges and tried to eat one. It was adorable and naturally it because his Pizza quilt.
