Seven years in the making, A-Round with My Friends was a round-robin quilt that Barbara just felt needed to be bigger, so she added additional appliqué. She was right, and the quilt won Best of Show at her guild show and then was selected to be in 500 Traditional Quilts by Karey Patterson Bresenhan.

Barbara's quilt, Red and White - By The Numbers, was selected as the commemorative quilt for the Ruby Jubilee of the Houston International Quilt Festival, but we think it's just as impressive that she kept track of all the fabrics and pieces that went into it. (For the record it's 2,770 pieces and 59 different fabrics).

Alex took a machine quilting class from Jenny K. Lyon at Craft Napa. Jenny brought a wonderful quilt, Morning Breeze, demonstrating all kinds of quilting designs. It had everything from feathers to flowers and presented as a beautiful whole cloth quilt. This one will get you motivated to find those quilt sandwiches and start practicing.
