Lisa's quilt, Gaudi Star, was inspired by the mosaics of Anton Gaudi in Park Guell in Barcelona. The screen printed design on all the fabric was based on the paving stones also designed by Gaudi. The star motif was then quilted onto the piece and then overpainted with transparent fabric paints to allow the tile designs to show through. It measures 58" x 58". Click here for more info.

She loved them so much that after spending just a few minutes setting them up and styling them, she took one home with her!

She said, "I love this and I am buying it! The hooks are so long that they will hold lots of rulers and tools, and you could even hang a basket or a bag of goodies on it without worrying that it will slip off. I need it!"

Cecilia Koppmann, from Buenos Aries, was a Rising Star in Houston in 2018. Her quilt, Student's Village, was created with the help of 70 young students in her class. At the end of the school year, she asked each one to bring her a little house which she could incorporate into a quilt. You'll love all the different houses and how they illustrate each child's personality.

Lisa lives in Australia which is an extremely dry continent. Most of the population lives around the edges as the center is not really fit for human habitation. However, they still need to eat and the farmers are constantly battling the elements of droughts and floods. This quilt is called Breaking the Drought #2 (as she already made an earlier one) and it depicts the rains finally falling and hopefully sending water to where it is needed.

August's Birthstone Block by MJ Kinman is Peridot.

Peridot represents warmth and well-being, and is mentally stimulating and physically regenerating. It offers inner radiance and opens the mind to new levels of awareness and growth, helping one to recognize destiny and spiritual purpose. 

Associated with the sun, Peridot has historically been prized for its power to drive away the forces of darkness. Ancient Civilizations used it as a charm against sorcery and magic, evil spirits, night terrors, and madness--especially when set in gold or strung on donkey hair and tied around the left arm.

According to legend, ancient Egyptians mined a beautiful green gem on an island now known as Zabargad. The island was infested with snakes, making mining unpleasant, until an powerful pharaoh drove them into the sea. In more modern times, the largest Peridot on record, a 310 carat stone, was found there!

August's Peridot Birthstone Pattern makes a 17" x 17" block to either be used alone, in a project, or combined with other birthstone blocks into a birthstone quilt.

We made the diamond block (April's Birthstone) and found that piecing it was very straightforward. It went together quickly, and most importantly, it was FUN to make!
