Featured Quilt - A "Love-Letter to London"

London Town by Nicola Dodd and quilted by Jayne Brereton was featured in the Two Person Quilts category at the 2023 Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England. Nicola says of her lovely quilt, "Although I'm a country girl at heart, nothing quite beats a trip to London and I've loved visiting with my boys during school holidays and seeing the city anew through their eyes. This quilt is my love-letter to London."

The Quilt Show Puzzle: What Do the Dots Make?

"Dog Gone" by Vicki Conley

Vicki has begun to play around with apps on her iPad to create new designs for her quilts. However, she doesn't just print these digital designs on fabric and quilts them, she takes the time to figure out how to piece them out of fabric. So the dot pattern featured in Dog Gone of her dog Skunk was created using one such app which Vicki then figured out how to make using appliqué shapes that were cut out with a cutting machine.
