Farmland
Name of Maker: Beth Howard
Farmland - This is an art quilt designed based on the view from an airplane window of beautiful farms below. The fabric is all hand-dyed by me, and I pieced and quilted it on my Bernina Activa 220 (I'm just a baby quilter, but man, I love that machine!!)
Blues on Top
Name of Maker: Bonnie Barber
Blues on Top - I used EQ6 to design the block and print the templates and then pieced the Martha Negley prints together. I machine appliqued a center circle on both sides after creating and stitching the sandwiched batting and backing.
Gone fishin
Name of Maker: Paula
Gone fishin - Don is a fisherman. It was designed to be raw edge - glued to the background, but I added the stitching around all the quilt components. It was the first quilt I just started quilting by going around the appliques, and kept going until I reached the edge.
Contemplation III Oh Just To Be
Name of Maker: Bonnie Lyn McCaffery
Contemplation III Oh Just To Be - Handpainted face and hands done with the technique in my book "Portrait Quilts: Painted Faces You Can Do" - and yes, you really can learn to paint a face. The trick is a guideline drawing created from a photo. The guideline drawing is positioned beneath the fabric so you can see exactly where to paint each of the features. Students (who sign up thinking that they really won't be able to do this) are always amazed that they really CAN do this.
