tippy

The top half of this quilt is a pattern from a publication by Wendy Williams, but the Dresden blooms were my addition. I call this "Tippy" after Ms. Hedron.
kanazawa-memories
Name of Maker: Betty Jo Tatum
A quilt honoring the Japanese women in Kanazawa, Japan, who not only taught me Ikebana but also how to manage a Japanese home more than forty years ago.  Made from Peppered Cottons (a soft loosely woven cotton), commercial embroidery designs from OESD for the Sashiko embroidered blocks, digitally painted flowers printed on cotton and arranged in situ on the quilt top in the Japanese style vase constructed from hand dyed dupioni silk.
chasing-sunlight
Name of Maker: Karen Watts
This is my original design using the nine-patch block, The center 9-patches were made using Ricky's improvisational curved piecing technique, with the curved sashing pieces machine appliqued on top. The quilt was designed for the New Quilts From an Old Favorite contest and is one of the 18 finalists. The quilt's title came from a song my husband was working on at the time with a lifelong friend in California. Sadly our friend passed away in April 2015 from cancer, making this quilt doubly meaningful to me.
piper-i
Name of Maker: Anne Mathers
Piper is the beloved Boston Terrier of my husband's neice.  I manipulated a photo of Piper on my computer and used a fusible collage technique to translate it into this fabric portrait. I have made many pet portraits and have gradually been working on ways to enhance the portrait with spectacular backgrounds. I particularly enjoyed making and quilting this green background from a selection of green fabrics from my stash.

homage-to-barn-raising
Name of Maker: Marion Curtis
Freely improvised wall hanging made with batik fabrics. The design was inspired by an ancient stone barn with an amazing wooden roof at a place called Denny Abbey in Cambridgeshire, England. My group, Eastern Region Textiles Forum, was asked by the manager of this English Heritage property to design and make textiles items inspired by the site.  There was a ladder tucked into the roof space so I included a ladder on the back of the quilt. One of the photographs shows it displayed in the barn. 
the-lady-of-shalott
Name of Maker: Wilma Moss
This three month Block of the Month kit from Ricky Tims' studio took me a little longer to make! I guess you could say I savored the journey. His pattern and hand-dyed fabrics were used. Excellent printed and video instructions and full-sized pattern including patterns for quilting were provided. I used the quilting motifs provided in the pattern for the outer border, but used other designs for the remaining areas.
