Weekend Fun - October 8, 2021


Featured Quilt - Best Pieced at One Show and 1st Runner-Up Best of Show at Another

Amish Chow Chow by Nancy Simmons won Best Pieced at the Vermont Quilt Festival (VQF) @Home 2021 Show and The BERNINA 1st Runner-Up Best of Show at the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza National Quilt Competition 2021. So what kind of work goes into a double award winner like this? How about Appliqué, Paper Piecing, Free Motion Quilting, Matchstick Quilting AND Piped Edging. On top of all that, Nancy had this to say on how the design came together, "My original design consisting of tiny blocks was inspired by the bright PA Dutch Colors found in the Hex signs and the vegetables and jars of colorful jams & relishes at the Amish farm markets in my area..."

Quilt Stories with Susan Brubaker Knapp


Learn The Meaning Behind Susan's Quilt

Lisa Walton (Show 2503), textile artist and past President of SAQA, speaks with Susan Brubaker Knapp (Show 901), who shares the haunting story behind about her quilt I'll Fly Away. Take it all in on another informative episode of Quilt Stories.

In The Store - Quarter Inch Quilter's Tape


Tape It Up Right

Quilter's Tape can be used any place where you need to mark a quarter inch seam allowance. It is especially helpful for hand-quilting and decorative stitching, and makes a great guide for sewing straight lines by hand or on a machine. When you are through, simply peel it off to remove it.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Raining Down Like Confetti


"Confetti" by Lisa Ellis

Confetti was part of series of quilts that Lisa did where she wanted to take the Cathedral Window block and do something different. To create the petals and flowers throughout the quilt, Lisa studied the overlapping circles of the Cathedral block to create something unique. To top it off, the black and white border is Lisa's nod to her mentor, Yvonne Porcella (Show 713).

See more of Lisa's quilts in How To Make Cathedral Windows By Machine And Thread Paint with Lisa Ellis | Making A Contemporary Chinese Coins Quilt.
