Featured Quilt - Made With Many, Many Tiny Pieces

Daisy Dodge designed her quilt, Barnum & Bailey, to look like it was pulled straight out of the past, a forgotten classic, a bygone era. Featured at the 2023 Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England as part of the Art Quilts category, she says, "I created this quilt as a nod to antique pieced masterpieces of the past. Although an original design of my own, I wanted to assemble thousands of little pieces of fabric, which then reminded me of a circus of color, hence the name."

The Quilt Show Puzzle: How Does Your Garden Grow?

"Gail's Garden" by Sharon Pederson

One day Sharon's daughter Gail, who is also a quilter, came to visit her while she was working on a stained glass flower block and asked her if she would teach her how to make it. Sharon happily obliged and Gail went home and made two more stained glass flower blocks. Those blocks, along with Sharon's purple flower block, became Gail's Garden, named of course after Sharon's daughter. Gail did the stitching on her two flowers and when Sharon asked if she could make the quilt a part of her book, Machine Appliqué for the Terrified Quilter, she agreed but only on the the condition that Sharon finish the quilt.
