Featured Quilt - Scrappy Sawtooth Stars & Pinwheels

Woven Together by Julie Crowell was featured in the Award-Winning Texas Quilts Exhibit (Sponsored by AccuQuilt) at the 2023 Houston International Quilt Festival. The exhibit was described as "A showcase of works by current members of Texas quilt guilds. Any quilt that won an award was eligible. See how Texas guild members are creating wonderful and skillful works that honor all quilting styles and techniques of quiltmaking's past and present."

As for her quilt, Julie says, "This pattern is a combination of Pinwheels and Sawtooth Stars with Pinwheel inset. The border, as well as the binding, is of pieced scraps. All fabrics used were scraps from projects I have created over the past few years. These include quilts, dresses, and handbags to name a few. The twisting pinwheels symbolize how fabric literally weaves itself into the life of a quilter. We blend till you can barely see the seams that hold us together."

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Making It Up As You Go

"Game Over" by Patty Murphy

Game Over started as twenty four-and-half inch squares up on Patty's design wall with her knowing that she wanted to do something with color, but not knowing where to go. In her "I don't know what I'm doing I'm just going to cut things up and make things happen" way of doing things, Game Over emerged. This is the second version of the quilt, with the first belonging to Patty's son. It's an easy-to-make, very graphic, really fun Modern quilt that is a favorite of Patty's.
