vantage-point
Name of Maker: Georgia Andrews

Sitting high in a Ponderosa pine, a female puma keeps watch over the landscape, ever vigilant for potential prey. A striking photo called me to capture her beauty using fabric collage techniques and thread. This is the fourth in a series of wildlife art quilts. Winner of Judges Choice Award (Elizabeth Spannring) at Quilt Canada 2019 (CQS NJS).

Name of Maker: Karin Miller
I started the 2017 BOM but time constraints didn't allow me to complete the entire project. My mother, Carol Hood, generously offered to hand quilt the portion I completed. I was totally thrilled with the result. I saved the monthly patterns. One day I hope to revisit this project and complete the entire quilt.
astrid-s-quilts
Name of Maker: Marion Dowell

In November of 2018, my daughter had a baby who lived for 5 hours. (Her rib cage was too small for proper lung development).  While she was being born, I was watching the 4 boys (ages 4-9).  They chose the fabrics for a small quilt that would go in the casket, so she could have a blanket in heaven.  They ironed them onto the fabric themselves.  This is the full size one I made in her memory.  There is a butterfly for every member of the family.

Name of Maker: Maron Dowell

My sister emailed me a 4 word message:  "I am a grandmother."  It took several emails to get all the details:  girl or boy, how big, whose baby, etc etc.  They wanted  purple and white, and this is the results.

splendor.2

Splendor is my first Art quilt. It features Hand applique, Machine applique, embroidery, sequins and vintage beads. This was completed with the consultation help of my sister LaShawn Krom of Brushworks Art. The machine quilting is raw edge to give impression of feathers.

o-canada-my-soul-belongs-to-thee
Name of Maker: Fiona Schiffl

This picture pieced quilt took about 18 months over 4.5 years to make. There’s ~6000 pieces not including the individual patches of batiste sewn in with every light grey and white piece. These were there to hide the seam allowances. Pieces start from the size of a pin head and work their way up. With that amount of seams, they are not going to sit nicely even in an alternate universe. Natural trapunto??? Many days of full time work would only produce about a 4” square of quilt. The quilt doesn’t photograph well. There is also a layer of batiste either side of the batting to help stabilise the quilt.

I noticed one night that the reflection of the quilt in the window gave it a lot more depth and looks very different. There’s a photo of it in reverse on my blog fionaschiffl.com along with the more in depth story of the quilt. I also noticed an almost full sized face looking up in the rocks. 

I love Lake Louise and I feel I’m really a Canadian trapped in an Australian’s body. If you can’t go to Canada, bring Canada to Australia is my motto.

This quilt got me through some of the worst and best times of my life. Looking at this photo in detail becoming a quilt was a blessing during this time. I’m glad to say I’ve done a lot of healing! 

The quilt won runner up (2nd place) in pictorial quilts in our state show so I’m over the moon.

Quilt size 165.5cm x 105cm. It weighs 2 kilos.

it-s-autumn
Name of Maker: NA

I love the autumn so it shows up in alot of my work. This piece is original design. Raw edge applique and  free motion quilting.

autumn-bouquet
Name of Maker: Edie Phillips

This is the third in my series of  Flower bouquets.  All the fabrics are hand painted. I took  photos of lots of flowers from my gardens. I then made patterns of eeach. This is raw edge appliqque. There are dozens of different thread colors in all the flowers.

into-the-mystic
Name of Maker: Karen Snedeker

This wall hanging is for my niece who is a scuba diver, her choice for transformation into a mystical mermaid.  In case it doesn't show up well in the photo, the quilting on the mermaid, her hair, the swans and in the section where the words are is all done in metallic glitter thread. It was a challenge to sew it without breakage, but I'm very happy with the impact in free motion quilting.  

bride-s-ribbon
Name of Maker: Terrie Welch

This is not a quilt, but the idea did come from The Quilt Show. Alex showed how to make a ribbon with the bride and groom’s names on it. I made one for a very special friend who got married today. She loves it!

pop-chef
Name of Maker: judyc

Made for a MCQA challenge, "Pop Portraits" inspired by works of Laurie Ceesay. Can you guess the subject's name?

lady-of-shalott-2
Name of Maker: Brigitte Bloch

It took me quite a while to finally start and finish Ricky's block of the month pattern "Lady of Shalott". It was  a lot of fun and I learned a lot using Ricky's technique.

blue-ain-t-your-color
Name of Maker: Connie R.

Completed the 2018 BOM quilt in July 2019...yay!!! Entering it in the August 2019 Monterey County Fair. Named it after one of my favorite Keith Urban songs.

tree-of-life-3
Name of Maker: Lina Kozak

This quilt was made from a dear Grandmothr’s silk scarves and a few of her embroidered handkerchiefs that she made herself.  Her Grandchildren asked me to make it for their Mother.  Truly a family keepsake that will be passed down for years.

holy-cathedral-windows
Name of Maker: HEATHER LYNN GOMEZ

Our guild was having a cathedral windows class that I could not attend so I searched YouTube and found The Masquerade site and she made it entirely by machine! She showed the difference between hand and machine stitched samples, so informative, and once you make your first little package, you need to make more. Also figured since they're "church" blocks Jesus had to be represented! Can't really be called a quilt since there is no batting, wanted it see-through to hang in front of a window. There are also 36 Perfect Circles(Karen Kay Buckley!) that are SO fun to make with her tools and technique.

fishies-2
Name of Maker: HEATHER LYNN GOMEZ

This fun fishie quilt is a combination of TQS techniques. First, I used Paula Doyle's method of easy stack to make the fabulous blocks then had to cut out the fishie appliques. Second, I used Susan Clevland's Prairie Pointer tool and techniques for the embroidered prairie points. When I free-motion quilted,I used Lori Kennedy's continuous fish design all over and I echoed the fishie appliques. The back is coral reef fabric so under this quilt you are definitely under the sea!
