This quilt was started as a guild challenge with these blocks as samples. These snowmen are so cute, you'll want to make some of your own.

The Loading Dock is dedicated to Mary's late husband in homage to his favorite holiday. It was mostly hand stitched while sitting with him during the long chemo treatments. She finished the quilting, through many tears, after he passed. Her husband did see the quilt almost finished.

Mary's quilt was the winner of the NQA 2011 Master Quilt Award and the 2011 IQA "World of Beauty" Award at the Houston International Quilt Festival.

This would be an excellent block to use to feature a focus fabric.  Do you know what it's called?  Play the game to find out.

This huge goddess quilt is one of Leah's favorites for the transformation it brought to her life. While working on it, Leah was struck with the idea to start the Free Motion Quilting Project and challenge herself to share new quilting designs every day. In this way, Release Your Light allowed Leah to release her light to the world, build a business, and support her family.

While it may not look like it, this quilt began as a large white bedsheet! The goddess figure was hand appliquéd to the surface, then the entire quilt was quilted. Only after it was completely finished, did she begin painting the surface with Shiva Paintstiks and colored pencils to create the dramatic blazing sun effect.
