legacy-of-4-daughters
Name of Maker: Tracy Fritchman

I made this quilt for my best friends mother on her 80th birthday Her mother has been a quilter for 60 years and we thought she would love to see

her family in a quilt.  I started with the matriarch in the center in B/W and Sepia tones and then gave each of her 4 daughters a quadrant of the quilt.

As with all families I think children add color to our lives so the quilt got more colorful as I worked my down to the grandchildren. I made sure to

incorporate pictures of the daughters and grandchildren with the quilts this grandma had made for them. She loved it and it hangs in her sewing room

to reminder her of her legacy.

blooming-tiles
Name of Maker: Karen Snedeker

This was made for a friend in exchange for a beautiful Mah Jongg set that incorporated her love of color and textiles in its restoration.  The quilt is based on the "In Full Bloom" pattern by Sue Spargo.  It was challenging to convert a folk art pattern intended for hand stitching on wool into a contemporary style cotton quilt done completely by machine.  I think the final product retained the spirit of the original pattern and incorporated the style of my friend's work.  Making it was a wonderful tribute to friendships formed through the love of games and fabric arts.

steady-as-they-go
Name of Maker: Janice Smith

While at lunch with friends, I inquired about my friend's parents. She passed around a photo of her parents on her phone which showed her parents out shopping. Her mom at ninety-four uses a cane while her dad at ninety-five prefers to hold on to his wife's pocketbook strap to steady himself. The photo was so endearing that I asked permission to make an art quilt based on it.

i-thirst
Name of Maker: Joan johnson

This is my interpretation of the stained glass window in the Sacred Heart Co-Cathedral in Houston.  I copied and enlarged and traced the pieces, using fusible. After it was all ironed down, I zig zagged the black lead lines. Quilting was done with monoply thread on the top following the lead lines and matching thread on the back.

drunkard-s-bullseye-wow
Name of Maker: Jackie Nixon-Fulton

This wall quilt was derived from a block from my modern sampler, "Playing Well Together", which was designed for the Modern Quilts Unlimited "Old is New" Block and Quilt Challenge. Each month of the challenge we assigned a traditional block and we were to create an original more modern block.  The tradtional block for this challenge was Drunkard's Path.  In my version, enlarging drunkard's path subunits extend from the middle out in 4 blocks. I used dark purple alternating with shades of orange, green, magenta and teal as the subunits enlarge outward. While the purple unifies it also contrasts with the colors giving luminosity and depth as the colors seem to jump out at you, while at the same time recede into the distance.  Drunkard's Bullseye WOW! was juried into the new exhibit “A Celebration of Color” that debuted at International Quilt Festival in Chicago April, 2017.

nancy-s-quilt
Name of Maker: Kathy Slough

I made this quilt for my sister's 50th birthday incorporating her love of Tinkerbell and pansies.  Using Meg Hawley's Hallowen quilt pattern "Which Witch's boot" I replaced the boot with a wreath of cutout, appliqued flowers as well as machine embroidered flowers.  What brought tears to Nancy's eyes was the fact that I incorporated a pansy doily our late mother made years ago by quartering it and sewing the quarters in the corners of the wreath section. I added other machine embroidered motifs and for the first time used Westalee's quilt rulers to quilt the border. Had fun expanding my quilting horizons!
