A Winter's  Night
Name of Maker: Joyce R Becker

I was inspired by a Japanese fabric that included the trees and background fabric. The fabric had to be manipulated in order to make a level forest and I added additional trees in the forground. I added textile paint and inks on the snow and the rocks and used an ombre Stonehenge fabric for the sky and the water. The sky fabric blends with the Japanese sky fabric. I added rheinstones for the stars and it is quilted heavily with a Wonderfil Tutti variegated thread.

carpenter-star-2
Name of Maker: Hannele Wakkari

Carpenter star snuggle quilt

failure-is-impossible
Name of Maker: Cris Rohn Hartman

This was made as part of a quilt challenge that I co-chaired for my guild titled, "HERstory; Notable American Women" featuring American women whose accomplishments occurred in or while representing America.   I have had an interest in Susan B. Anthony since I was in college and did research papers o her.  In 1978 I acquired 2 letters found folded inside some old books that I purchased.  The letters were on National American Women's Suffrage Association letterhead and were signed by Susan B. Anthony.  I wanted to use copies of the letters on my quilt and feature aspects of Miss Anthony's life that she was known for in history.   While working on the quilt one day, I was listening to the news and was alarmed at some of  the sexist/misogynistic comments being made by some of our current politicians.   I had been reading many of Miss Anthony's quotes and realized that some of them were just as relevant today as they had been over a century ago.  There wasn't room to include all of the quotes that I felt needed to be on the quilt, so a decision was made to make the quilt double sided.  The back side of the quilt contains a timeline of Susan B. Anthony's life as well as her quotes.  I added embellishments including feathers (from my fly tying collection), vintage buttons from a friend born in 1920 (the year the 19th Amendment was enacted), and a Susan B. Anthony dollar given to me by one of my co-chairs.  The title of the quilt came from one of Miss Anthony's well known quotes. The quilt is being displayed at the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum in Adams, MA until Feb. 29, 2020, to be a part of the 200th anniversary of Susan B. Anthony's birth on Feb. 15, 2020.  What an honor to be part of the celebration of this amazing woman's life!  

 

run-with-the-horsemen
Name of Maker: Phyllis Coppolino

This quilt is a replication of book jacket art, with permission from the Publisher.  I had the privilege of working with the author...Dr Sambo...to his friends, for many years.  After attending my first Houston quilt show I was inspired to look for art that was meaning ful to me and to replicate it in fiber.  This is the result, finally completed after languishing in the UFO pile for a very long time.  It was waiting for me to have the courage to put it on my longarm.

starfish-sue
Name of Maker: Heather Gomez

I've always wanted to make a sunbonnet sue quilt and I live in the Florida Keys, so this quilt was born. Since I could not find a tropical pattern for a sunbonnet, I took the opportunity to create my own design. I had just finiished a starfish quilt so had the fabric for the ones fused all over and for her outfits. It's like playing paper dolls again! This quilt was also QAYG practice which is a learning curve to keep your brain right side up. It's hard to see but the sashing and binding are sand dollars. Super fun to make, hope you enjoy! Don't know why my pictures are sideways!!!

peelapalooza
Name of Maker: Candace Door

Made for the Pagosa Piecemakers 2019 Challenge.  The requirement for the challenge was that the quilt had to have 10 "things" in it.  I added 10 hand embroidered circles.  I used the Accuquilt Orange Peel die and the Accuquilt Rose of Sharon die to create all my "peels".  I used freezer paper on the dies and then edge turned and machine appliqued the peels.  I was blessed to win 1st prize!

Sapphire
Name of Maker: Anita Grossman Solomon

It's just a large quilt that came about because I wanted to try my half-baked idea for constructing wide geese. It turned out my idea was fully baked but my apartment was too small to photograph the quilt. So then I got an idea...

college-bound-quilt
Name of Maker: Deborah Carnes & NancyinSTL

Collaboratively designed, pieced and quilted using multiple themed and multiple sized Baker’s Dozen blocks (log cabin, Autumn leaves, and red & gold).  Made for one of the Thimble & Thread Quilt Guild’s 2019 charity East St. Louis Community Fund College Scholarship recipients.  Smaller blocks were enlarged by adding log cabin-like strips to create consistent 10” finished blocks.  Too large blocks were used as quilt cornerstones.  Inspirational words were cut from a Word Play fabric panel.

Name of Maker: Shirley Ann Calderwood Fisher

My Ruffled Roses quilt won a President’s award at my local guild’s quilt show this past weekend. I used Ricky’s Poly stuff to prepare all of the hand appliqué and some of the pieced blocks.
