This is a portrait of my son Jeremy and his wife Meredith, which hung at their wedding.  It is done in the Marilyn Belford way of making portraits, fusible and stitching.  It hung in the Mid-Atlantic quilt Fest in 2016.  They were married in 2015.

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. 

playing-well-together
Name of Maker: Jackie Nixon-Fulton

 

The Modern Quilts Unlimited magazine/Michael Miller fabrics "What's Old is New" block and quilt challenge was the inspiration. Each month we were challenged to take a specific traditional block and design an original, more modern 12” block.  11 of the 12 blocks were designed on EQ7 and all were foundation pieced.  For the final challenge, we were to design a modern quilt in the size constraints of 60”x 60” or less, utilizing all 12 blocks.   My goal was to apply some aspect of depth to the blocks and final layout using different shades of the base colors. There are 36 different Michael Miller Cotton Couture fabrics. Green acts as a neutral and, as in nature, goes with all colors. Despite the disparity of the block designs and the color variations, the layout and quilting unifies the blocks and they all work well together; thus, the name "Playing Well Together".  This quilt was the Michael Miller Fabrics Choice Award winner.  It also won First place in the Modern Category in the new exhibit “A Celebration of Color” that debuted at International Quilt Festival in Chicago April, 2017 and will be on tour for 2 years.

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!

This quilt was so fun to make. It was made for a quilt challenge on the Oregon Coast, Gem of the Ocean. My daughter took the photo on the Oregon Coast. As I was making the quilt I tried to get it to look three demensional so, I used ink dyes and pens to embellish it. The quilt took second place in the
challenge! I would have never entered if it wasn't for Sarah's photo and a push from my local quilt shop owners of Tater Patch Quilts. Thanks, Diane and Robin!
