Nysha wrote about this quilt:

This whole cloth was created as a prayer/meditation for an ill friend who has a fierce attitude about life and illness.

Nysha writes, "Sometimes we must step outside of what we know -- and our comfort zone in order to finish a project.This was one of those times for me. The quilting of this composition led to a whole new mindset in quilting."

Nysha's quilt "Because" was created as a challenge quilt. It represents obligations and expectations. It was one of the first times he used words on a quilt. Ironically, the word "Because" is not included.

Pat writes about her quilt, "Mosaic picture pieced, photo of my grand nieces Hannah and Claire. Aren't they cute? They were 4 1/2 at the time and just bursting with fun. I made this when my Mosaic Picture Quilting idea was new. This piece has 23,100 pieces that are 1/2 inch. This quilt has been in many national shows and got a 3rd place in Houston. It's been in several magazines as well. I am so happy that people love the quilt (I sure do)."

This is Pat's daughter Carol's dog, Bailey--looking hopeful.

The image is painted with fabric paints on white cotton. The next step was to stitch the fur with many different colors of thread free-motion style. Then she sandwiched it with batting and quilted the rest. It is a fun technique and effective for that furry look.
