Newsletter - December 20, 2021
Featured Quilt - Look at All the Techniques!

Margaret Solomon Gunn is no stranger to the winner's circle and has come through time and time again with this quilt. My Secret Garden (71" x 71") combines Hand Appliqué, Beading, Bias Work, Embellishments, Matchstick Quilting, Machine Piecing, and Piped Edging. Even the rolling border is amazing. Winning 1st Place at Road to California 2019, Best Original Design at AQS Daytona Beach 2020, and Second Place Movable Machine Quilting at Spring Paducah 2019, we are glad she did not keep this garden a secret.

Vibrant colors and inspirational words from Ghandi are all part of this whimsical quilt, Be The Change, by Joanne Sharpe. The quilt is full of beautiful batiks, which Joanne says act as her paints when creating to bring the vibrancy and color to life.
