scrappy-tumblers
Name of Maker: Wendy Bain

Made as a Leader/Ender project per Bonnie Hunter. Decided it’d be just right for my five year old grandson, so I put a cute barnyard print on the back. I’d been wanting to try straight line quilting for awhile, and chose a colorful variegated thread. Worked on the tumbler rows throughout 2018 and into 2019.

kingwood-friendship-quilt
Name of Maker: Wendy Bain and friends

When I moved to Colorado from Kingwood, Texas, friends gifted me with quilt squares made from two bright triangles and a white strip connecting them diagonally. Each person made two identical blocks and signed one in the white strip. I decided how to set them and added two narrow borders and a wide batik one. Nine friends in Colorado helped me hand quilt it on a frame. It has a wool batt and muslin backing. The border was not marked; we just quilted around the motifs in the print. For the first time, I rounded off the corners, so I used a bias binding.

cedars-and-sunbeams
Name of Maker: Anne Brennan

My mum and I saw a quilt like this in a Victoria show.

After ten minutes of trying to figure out how it was sewn together, we asked the maker, Pat Watson. She told us she’d studied an antique quilt and figured out how it was done.

I had to know, too! When I took her class (“Antique Braid”), I was gobsmacked at how slick the technique was. I still am. It’s just like doing up a zipper!

 

one-magic-night
Name of Maker: Anne Brennan and Margaret Montague Geldart

Quilting was central to our mother/daughter bond, taking us from international quilt festivals to guild retreats together. Yet our tastes in fabrics and techniques were so different that we’d never collaborated on a quilt before.

When we saw this pattern (“And to All a Good Night” by Sue Garman), we knew we had to make it together, because Margaret loved hand appliqué and Anne loved machine piecing.

Margaret passed away with Anne by her side while the quilt was hanging in a show.

Black & Yellow 60-30 (full quilt)
Name of Maker: Randa Mulford

I created this quilt as a sample for a 60-30 Kaleidoscope class that I was teaching. It uses Paula Nadelstern mandala and other prints.

climb-every-mountain
Name of Maker: Marion R Dowell

I really liked the pattern "Moon Over Mountain" by Jean Wells.  Once I started making them, I decided to improvise.  It would have been so much easier if I had made all the little mountain blocks, but no, I have to make 4 of the large ones.  Making a double row of small block for the borders was also too easy.  This sat for a couple of years while i pondered how to put it together.  I tried a few new things, pulled out a few seams, and finally came up with an appropritate name for hthis quilt:  Climb Every Mountain.

christmas-blessing
Name of Maker: Connie Adams

Cotton fabric and batting, machine pieced, machine quilted.

emmy-s-passion-for-horses
Name of Maker: Theresa - Grandma T.

My granddaughter, Emersyn, loved horses as a young child. This quilt still hangs in her bedroom - she's 13 years old now.

a-time-for-lime-2
Name of Maker: Karen Grover

This quilt is a combination of Sue Garman's Bed of Roses and my layout.  After watching the 2020 BOM show, I realized I had never posted it at TQS.  I wanted to do something a bit different, so I did the applique out of Kaffe Faucett fabrics and combined it with a Civil War Reproduction red background and some lime green.  I enterd it in Houston and won an Honorable Mention.  I was fortunate to communicate with Sue prior to her death.  She and I had a nice conversation about how I chose to quilt it and why I chose the colors I did.  How I wish I could have met her.  

seasoned-with-time
Name of Maker: Karlyn Bue Lohrenz

Growing up on a ranch, it always stirs emotions when I come across an image as this.  Once a treasure now 'put to pasture' begins the thoughts of the stories this relic could tell.  My heart ponders as I create my art piece and finally conclude that life has a way of moving on.

a-to-z-foe-ewe-and-me
Name of Maker: Joyce Triezenberg

This was TQS BOM for 2014 designed by Janet Stone.  I used an olive green polka dot fabric for the background instead of cream or some other light neutral.  I machine quilted the quilt on my long arm quilting machine with blue, green,  and black Bottom Line thread as well as accents in gold metallic thread all by Superior. Although barely visible, I quilted the entire alphabet in the outer black border. I added heat set crystals as accents to all the blocks.  Each letter of the alphbet has a crystal, too.
