hungarian-rhapsody
Name of Maker: Joyce Triezenberg

This quilt is the result of a short term BOM issued by Ricky Tims.  I chose the "Wizards's Wardrobe" color option. I received my kit in the the summer of 2018, but did not begin work until February of 2019.  I completed the applique in the summer of 2019 using a double blanket stitch and several colors of Glide thread, but only completed the machine quilting and machine embroidered binding in July 2020 during the quarantine days. I machine quilted around each applique shape and inserted as many tiny feathers as I could fit in the background. I used my Brother Scan 'n Cut to scan and cut all the applique shapes. The quilting fabric was Ricky's hand dyes, the batting is Hobbs 80/20, the thread was two colors of Superior's 'So Fine".  I did the machine quilting hand guided on my Innova long-arm machine. In the borders,  I followed the pattern's spine designs, but quilted much thinner feathers than the pattern showed.

undersea-hexies
Name of Maker: HEATHER LYNN GOMEZ

I started these hexagons last year from scraps, put them up on my design wall in February,and could not take them down until they were together. Quarantine happened so I hand pieced all through March then didn't want to cover the creatures with stitches so I faced it! Then 'quilted" it with beads in each point. Entered it in the Quarantine Quilts contest(not accepted) but covered every stitch on the back with lille fused circles, just in case. I Love looking at this quilt and I will never forget the circumstances in which it came to be!

out-of-mom-s-workbasket
Name of Maker: Betty Jo Tatum

After my Mom passed in 1998, I found several beautiful crocheted items she had been working on.  Among them were five 10 x 10 inch crocheted squares.  For years I tried to figure out how to use these in a way to honor her memory.  I was not a quilter at that time, but I did do a lot of sewing.  So in late 2018 I decided I could use them on a quilt.  It took me about six months to design the quilt after I figured out I could make them form a star by placing them together in a certain way.  This quilt took me another year to make after I got the design.  I made it with polyester crepe back satin (white) and polyester dupioni (2 blues).  I added machine embroidery in the borders, and the center star is also machine embroidered.  I painted the flowers and birds around the white part after I quilted them.  Then I finished it off with a row of pearls along the binding, hot fix pearls throughout the quilt, and sewed on five pearls in the centers of the crocheted squares that came from one of her broken necklaces. Her name was Zephana Compton Bivens and she was a master craftsman in woodworking, handwork, and sewing. This picture shows a bend in the right that is not really there.  I will replace the picture when I can.

fragmentation-wonderful-words
Name of Maker: Anne-Marie Tye

This was made for the Fragmention challenge of the Contemporary Quilters groups of Quilters Guild of the British Isles.  Words are central to our lives.  They instruct us, describe out thoughts and environment and communicate with it and others.  They can be the harbingers of joy or sorrow.

 

Some words have been lost - blown away on the winds of time as languages come and go.  Most of us can recognise words no matter how they are written: letters missing (some languages even omit vowels), letters jumbled or backwards.  They are so powerful that most of us can read them no matter how jumbled or fragmented they are.
