new-york-skylines
Name of Maker: Lilian Myers

Started and finished this quilt in November 2016, but had difficulty in knowing how to hang a large circular quilt.  Had about 3 suggestions from quilters, but none of them worked.  So, it sat over my stair rails until I made this decision.  Last week on August 6, 2017, I simply pinned it up with push pins, so that is how you see it in the photo.  It is large and heavy for a 5' little lady.  cheeky But looks great on my upstairs wall.

Pattern directions were easy to follow, but took a bit of time and space to put it all together.  I added the approximately 9" border and additional gold rick-rack to give the overall look a bit of a spark.  It required 6 yards of fabric plus the purchase of a 25" triangle ruler.   There are 24 panels, each 7" wide, in the main circle of the quilt.  You had to be precise in cutting to ensure proper spacing of each panel.  I wanted to have a large black background, to which I would affix the quilt, but that is another challenge I may face in the future.  Or not.cool

the-cousin-s-ccollection
Name of Maker: Lettie Bowman and Sheri Nemerson

Mary Kerr's show inspired me to post the bags I made from The Cousin's Collection.  I had16 blocks that I inherited from my grandmother and 16 female cousins.  I had a "The Cousin's Collection" rubber stamp made and used it to mark the muslin lining.  I covered the " not always great" workmanship with yoyo's and thought of the stains as a dexign element.  The blocks are all pockets that are quilted with decorative stitches. Each bag is different and they are embellished with yoyo's, buttons, chenille, machine and hand applique, and embroidery.  Most of the fabrics came from my stach, so it was a great project to use up left over fabric.  I have kept those blocks for 40 years and am delighted to have them out the door!

pumpkin-harvest
Name of Maker: Carol Moellers

This was a quilt I made for the 2017 Iowa Shop Hop Challenge.  Our region of Iowa was given the fall theme and a pre-selected set of specialty designed fabrics produced by Wilmington Fabrics to create a quilt to inspire the quilters throughout the state with projects.  The challenge rules were to incorporate as many of the specialty fabrics and we could add any accent colors that gave the final project a fall look and feel.  I choose the pumpkin seed or orange peel block and changed the scale of the blocks which ran diagonally across the middle.  The quilt is a table topper and is simply quilted with a large meander.  After watching the Mary Kerr show I thought it would be fun to share this quilt.  It is modern but is based on a very old pumpkin seed block.

Name of Maker: NancyinSTL

Made for a cheerleader graduating from high school.  This was my first T-shirt quilt, which includes a cheerleader uniform (partially set-in), sweatshirts, detachable hair bows (pinned on using eyelets) and tees.  I used woven fusible interfacing and cotton pieced quilt blocks as fillers.  Each block was custom quilted on my domestic sewing machine.  Backing fabric by Tula Pink.
