Featured Quilt - Ewe'll Want To See This Quilt

Janet Stone and her sheep are at it again. Her quilt, Ewe Two Crazy Love Birds, won Third Place Wall Quilts: Stationary Machine Quilted (Sponsored by Baby Lock USA presented by Calico Country Sew & Vac) at AQS Quiltweek 2022. It's not this quilt's first rodeo though, as it also took home 1st Place: Appliqué at Road to California 2022.

Janet says, Created in honor of my 25th wedding anniversary. Vases were woven with bias strips, I crocheted the wreath on the gate, and a few embellishments were added, including hand covered buttons. Since we have no kids, the 8 sheep in the center represent my husband and I and each of our 3 siblings, my half-brother being on the far left. Made with mostly French General fabrics, which brought me joy, during a year that did not."

Learn from Janet right here at TQS by watching her in Block of the Month Quilt 2014 A-Z for Ewe and Me! by Janet Stone.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Prince Is In There Somewhere
"My Kingdom For A Toad" by Linda Sullivan

My Kingdom For A Toad was designed at Linda's home after she couldn't find a pattern that she liked. So, she took all her fabulous colored fabrics that she had from a class with Freddy Moran and built this quilt. By the time she went back to the quilt shop to get a backing fabric for it, the quilt shop wanted a pattern of it. Linda then wrote the pattern and it launched her first company, Linderella's Quilt Works. The pattern to this day has sold over 75,000 copies.
