An Unlikely Medallion Quilt, Piecing Palooza Featuring Alex, Quilters Take a Moment Tickets, Learn About Matchstick Quilting, New "Garden Gatherings" Fabric and Book, A Matrimonial Puzzle

Sunday Smiles - August 7, 2022
Featured Quilt - Bias Tape Appliqué and Foundation Paper Piecing?

Wit a combination of techniques, Zen Medallion by Latifah Saafir is an interesting quilt to study (plus we love the wide binding). Here's what she had to say about its inception, "My friend Janice Ryan asked me to contribute to The Modern Medallion Workbook that she was writing with Ben Vassalo. I designed Zen Medallion so that it looks like a medallion but unlike most medallion quilts it's built-in wedges.

This quilt utilizes two of my favorite techniques, bias tape appliqué and foundation paper piecing. I love the unusual color combination of peach, mustard, teal and aqua. And a good chunky scrappy binding always makes my heart happy."

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Monochromatic Matrimony
"Black and White Double Wedding Ring" by Teresa Duryea Wong

Black and White Double Wedding Ring is one of Teresa's earlier quilts. It is entirely hand quilted because her friend at the time hand quilted her quilts and told her that you "didn't quilt your quilts on a machine." So at this early stage in her career she just followed suit and did the same with this quilt.
