Featured Quilt - Best Hand Quilting at Road to California 2023

Harmony by Sachiko Chiba won Best Hand Quilting at Road to California 2023. It isn't hard to see why Sachiko took home the Hand Quilting award this year, having won many other hand quilting awards throughout her career, because this is another stunning work featuring a wonderful floral design.

She says, "I wanted to quilt beautiful blooming roses. These are loved by all. That is why I wanted to express their elegant and gorgeous appearance. I spent a lot of time designing, carefully selecting fabrics, and taking my time with each one, and finally completed this quilt. I'm happy I was able to create a quilt that is uniquely my own."

Stems & Circles

Barbara Black has some good advice on how to get your stems made just right for the 2023 Block Of the Month, Homeward Bound. You also have some choices to make. Then, she helps with those tricky circles. Barbara has already made the quilt and it's good to have a quilting guide who has already conquered the path. Even if you aren't making the quilt, you might want to join in and see what Barbara is teaching.

Barbara is LIVE TODAY, February 3, 2023 @ 10am PST, 1pm EST, and 6pm London time. All classes are recorded so they can be viewed later.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Let The Curves Guide You

"Mid Century Modern Curves" by Carole Lyles Shaw

Mid Century Modern Curves was inspired by Carole's love of the improv drunkard's path block, which involves cutting the curve with no templates, no pinning, and no matching. Mid Century Modern is the title that she gives to this process, and she makes improv curve blocks with a quarter circle, puts them into groups of four, and then starts cutting them up and sewing them back together in an improvisational way.

See more of Carole's quilts in Learn How to Work in a Series and an Afro-Modern Fractured Disappearing 9-Patch with Carole Lyles Shaw.
