Featured Quilt - Besieged By Beautiful Bubbles

Bubble Ballet by Birgit Schüeller won Third Place in the Small Wall Quilts category at Spring Paducah 2019. Birgit had this to say about quilting the colorful design, "I chose one color thread for each set of circles and due to the shading within each of them, the thread color seems to change between sections of the same circle. This adds a third dimension to the circles turning them into bubbles. Bubble Ballet seems to be spinning in an endless loop!"

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Featuring Microwave Dyed Fabric
"Lilies" by Barbara Black

Lilies was made by Barbara in a class with Judy Simmons where Judy taught her students how to microwave dye fabric. So the flowers are made out of a fat quarter that Barbara microwave dyed purple and then cut into flower shapes afterward. Once put together, like most of her earlier quilts, Barbara then appliquéd and hand quilted the piece to bring it all together.
