Featured Quilt - Just Keep Swimming

Shoals Quilt by Andrea Hardy and Fern Royce was part of the Susanne Woods Exhibit at Quiltcon 2022. "Susanne Woods was an early advocate for and leader of the MQG. Serving on the board of directors for six years, in addition to her full-time publishing career, Susanne's guidance was invaluable. Like so many quilters, Susanne's passing in 2020 left stacks of projects unfinished. This exhibit features many of those quilts, which were lovingly finished by members of the local guild started by Susanne. Discover this sliver of Susanne's legacy, and the stories of finishing the quilts from members of her guild."

As for the Shoals Quilt, it was made at the request of someone close to Susanne by Andrea and Fern as a way to honor her. Using fabrics picked from Susanne's stash in the colors of a sunset, and the Shoals quilt design from Nicholas Ball's book, Inspiring Improv, we're sure this loving tribute would delight Susanne.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Let The Light Shine Down
"Release Your Light" by Leah Day

This huge goddess quilt is one of Leah's favorites for the transformation it brought to her life. While working on it, Leah was struck with the idea to start the Free Motion Quilting Project and challenge herself to share new quilting designs every day. In this way, Release Your Light allowed Leah to release her light to the world, build a business, and support her family.
