Doodle Bird 2 by Joanie Zeier Poole and Pam Levenhagen is the third quilt created by these two friends. Pam created the central panel from her original painting. Joanie assembled the top and brought it to life with her imaginative quilting designs, that fill each tiny space using hand-guided free-motion quilting on her domestic machine. Doodle Bird 2 won Second Place at AQS Lancaster 2015, Wall Quilts – 1st Entry.

Sometimes you just have the feeling to make a quilt, and Cindy Thompson had that feeling. For Birds of Paradise she says, "looking through my travel photos, I was drawn to make this this pair of birds, which were so colorful in their natural environment." Featured at Houston 2019 in the Animal Kingdom exhibit, Cindy used a variety of techniques "to convey a realistic impression of these beautiful and colorful birds." Among those techniques, machine quiltingfused appliqué, and painting were used to bring out the birds striking plumage.

Birds of Paradise by Cindy Thompson of Chowchilla, California was featured in the Animal Kingdom category at Houston 2019.

Saturday Market Bags by Tina McCann was spotted at AQS QuiltWeek Phoenix 2014. Tina's design source was produce at the Saturday Market.

Here's what she has to say: "Luscious colors were the words percolating in my brain, keeping me awake after my first foray into dyeing fabrics. Quietly creeping into the utility room to stare at the drying piles of color, visions of fruits and vegetables danced in my head. A trip to the farmers' market, seeing the mounds of colorful produce, and watching people carry various bags and baskets stuffed with food, brought together thoughts of produce on bags and bags on the quilt."
