Featured Quilt - Best Machine Quilting,
Framed Needle Moves at Quiltcon 2022

Aroha by Michelle Wilkie won Best Machine Quilting, Framed Needle Moves at Quiltcon 2022, but she didn't make this quilt alone, it was a team effort. "This quilt was a group quilt where I chose Maori design influences and a traditional color palette to introduce friends to the culture I grew up with in New Zealand." And what does the title mean you ask? Michelle says, "Aroha means love in Maori." An all-around appropriately fitting title considering we just "love" this quilt, especially the back. (It'll make sense once you see it.)

Own a Piece of History While Supporting the Museum of Texas Tech
Were you aware that not all museums with textile collections are able to fund a curator? The Museum of Texas Tech University has one of the largest Clothing and Textile Divisions (including quilts) in the state of Texas, and one of the very few with a curator dedicated to its care, research, and exhibition. In order to ensure that there will always be a curator at the Museum of Texas Tech University the TTU Museum Association is holding an online quilt auction.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Creative Collaging At Work
"#1 Collage Study" by Kerri Green

#1 Collage Study came about from a paper collage class that Kerri took. Taking a paper cut collage that she made during the class and blowing it up, she reproduced the look in fabric and pieced it.
