Featured Quilt - Second Place Small Wall Quilts: 1st Entry in an AQS Paducah Quilt Contest at Paducah 2024

Kalaloch Tree Of Life by Terri Shinn won Second Place - Small Wall Quilts: 1st Entry in an AQS Paducah Quilt Contest (Sponsored by The Appliqué Society) at AQS QuiltWeek Paducah 2024. Using a photograph of the Tree of Life, located on the Kalaloch Campground in Forks, Washington, as her inspiration, Terri lovingly recreated her quilt from the ground up (get it) with beautiful hand appliqué and hand embroidery. As the roots of the real Tree of Life grow with no soil around them, so too do the roots of Terri's quilt, but hers grows through the rich nutrients of thread and fabric.

See How Desserto's Cactus Alternative Leather Is Made

Creating From Cactus

Leather is a glamorous and luxurious material to use when making clothing, handbags, car interiors, and the like, but it can also be an expensive one. That's why the Desserto company has developed "a highly sustainable plant based material as an alternative to leather made from cactus, often distinguished by its great softness at touch while offering a great performance for a wide variety of applications and complying with the most rigorous quality and environmental standards"

Watch this video and see how Desserto creates their leather alternative, which may soon be used in a product that you purchase.

WeAllSew Tutorial: How to Supersize Quilt Blocks

Supersizes Means Super Fun!

In this tutorial, she "supersizes" her quilt block. Learn how she starts with a 12" block and ends up with a 48" x 48" quilt.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Inspiration From Your Seat

"Delta Breeze" by Cindy Wiens

At a time when her husband was participating in the Men's Chorus, Cindy took a trip with him to one of their shows. After the show was over and her husband was helping to take the show down, Cindy sat waiting in a church pew. Trying to waste some time, she was looking at the upholstery where she sat and noticed some quilting possibilities in the design, even if it wasn't that attractive. She took a photo of it and decided that the quilt block that seemed most like the upholstery would be a Bear Paw. So she made that pew-inspired block in two different sizes, an 8-inch one and a tiny one, and created her Delta Breeze quilt, which was quilted by Darby Myers.
