Featured Quilt - What Kind of Bird Is This?

We don't actually think this is a raven, which we all know Ricky loves, be we love how many colors Jackie Berry used to create her beautiful "black" bird in Preening on a Beautiful Day. The quilt was exhibited at AQS QuiltWeek Paducah 2024 as part of the Small Wall Quilts - Pictorial (Sponsored by PFAFF) category. Based on a photograph by Jackie, it features wonderful fused, raw edge and machine appliqué utilized to beautiful effect to create the textured feathered look of the centerpiece bird.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Shimmering Sight

"Shimmer" by Jenny Bowker

Jenny says of Shimmer, "I had made an earlier quilt, Lost in Singapore, with a pattern idea for a simple block but with a change. I did not want to cut the strong and interesting prints into smaller pieces. This is made on the same principles for the Shimmering Triangles class, and I have loved the way this system forces prints with little in common to sit happily side by side."
