I saw this quilt on the old TQS site 5 years and contacted the quilter for the pattern.  She indicated that the pattern was no longer being printed, but sold me her copy.  I made this quilt with all the blocks and it just grew and grew.  I love hand applique and this quilt took 4 years to applique, but when I was on the home stretch, got it finished very quickly.

She won Reserve Champion in our local county fair and Best in Show in the Colorado State Fair.  She was at HMQS in May, 2015 and received a Teacher's Award.  One issue with her is because she is so big she doesn't get into a lot of quilt shows.

I absolutely love this quilt and she will be living with me.

When this quilt came out as the BOM, I really didn't care for UNTIL I went to a TQS taping last November and they had it there in person.  Well, she spoke to me to make her.  She will be going to a new owner the end of July as, I wasn't planning to sell her, but this woman really wanted her, woohoo.  It certainly is a fussy quilt, but very fun quilt to look at.

Made for the Elements challenge of the Contemporary Quilters Group, this represents our earth: an abstract representation of molton and solid rocks and metal.
I Gelli printed cloths, cut them up, pieced and appliqued them before overpainting or embroidering in places.
Mountain Top
Name of Maker: Shawn Priggel
This is what I ended up doing with my half square triangles from the TQS exchange a few years ago.  I've actually had the quilt finished for more than a year - finally made myself sit down and bind it!  It's an Edyta Sitar pattern she calls Mountain Top.  Another traditional name for it is Railroad Crossing.

This is another quilt club project using the Stars and Stripes block, that I used my favorite fabrics to make it.  I have so many projects using this fabric combination that my home decor theme goes from room to room.

It consists of squares, rectangles, and half square triangles.  Just love it!

I belong to a quilt club that my friend is president of, and I drive 50 minutes one way to support her and attend the meetings twice a month.
This quilt used my favorite fabric combination, used in my bed quilt, and I've used in quite a few projects.  First time making flying geese type blocks that were folded back and stitched making cathedral window type blocks with a contemporary twist to them.

This is my first try at paper-piecing and a king-sized quilt.  During the class, we could select which stars we wanted from the book, '50 Fabulous Paper-Pieced Stars' by Carol Doak.

I used fabric from my stash, the batiks, my mother's stash (the yellow) and new fabrics, the print and associated prints.  The print that repeats in all the stars was my starting off point in selecting fabric for this quilt.   With all the bright colors, the width of the black sashing was important as it calmed and reined in the colors.  After years of pondering how to have this quilt long-arm quilted, I finally had it quilted this year and it is awaiting the binding.

New to quilting I have taken classes and have found that piecing is like a mediation for me.  This is only my second king sized quilt, and I have no place large enough to hang it for a picture, so it is on my bed.  It is reversable because of the thread colors selected.    I enjoy selecting the type of stitches and thread colors used by long-arm quilter, Cheryl, to quilt my quilts.  I selected silk batting for this quilt -- which I found at a quilt show in Cincinatti, Ohio.  It is made from different size squares.

Entry for Cotton+Steel challenge through NW Arkansas Modern Quilt Guild.  Our president brought back scraps from the Cotton+Steel booth at QuiltCon.  The only restriction was that we could only add more Cotton+Steel fabrics and/or solids.  I only had white and navy polyester that would coordinate with the fabrics I used.  Matchstick quilting includes lettering, "+ Poly."

I  began this quilt last year in a one day class with Jacking Gering.  It is an original  design.  The title of the quilt is a play on the saying "Perfect symmetry is a man-made concept."

Made for the Contemporary Quilt UK challenge: Elements, this quilt is about the elemental structure of our world: molten and solid rock with a metal core with hints of the thin layer of earth and water.
Various gelli prints on cloth pieced and appliqued with some overpainting.  I used Alex's turned edge binging method.

Finally finished my TQS BOM 2014 this week.

This is the second applique quilt I have done. I couldn't find a pattern for this, so drew it myself after seeing one made from the pattern a friend's grandma made. I did trapunto on the ladies, and free motion quilting was done on my bernina 330. I have only been quilting for 2 years, so still have a lot to learn:)
Name of Maker: Ralph Blosat
This was a wedding gift and made base off the dalia quilt pattern.  Fabric is moda marbles.
