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.

Begonia Picotee Lace was proudly displayed at Pat's National Quilt Museum Exhibit in 2017. Pat writes, "My husband Gary took a beautiful shot of this begonia and I decided it would be an interesting subject." We agree, and it's a beautiful quilt.

Pat writes,

"A redwood scene was a natural subject for me, having lived in the redwoods most of my life. We attended a wedding in Richardson's Grove, it was a beautiful day and Gary took many pictures. As I searched for just the right one to do a quilt, this shot jumped to my attention. I decided to make it tall and narrow, just like the trees to enhance the feeling."
