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!

 

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.

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.

charm-squares-for-a-charming-girl
Name of Maker: Wendy Bain

Combined most of three packs of charm squares I’d had forever. Stitched in the ditch and fmq’d flowers sporadically. Christmas gift for my 7 year old granddaughter.

payton-s-first
Name of Maker: Payton

Payton is 11 years old and completed 95% of this quilt on her own, minus cutting, lol.  She learned a lot about color value and contrast, precision piecing and quilted her creation on Nana's Innova Longarm.  She used a machine finished binding.  Her label says:  Payton , 2019 and....Let's "taco" about this Amazing Quilt.! I am very proud that as she was stitching the binding she mentioned that it was wonderful to do the quilt and a little sad that it was finished.

 

buttermilk-and-blue-skies
Name of Maker: Karen Grover

This quilt was conceived when our mini group decided to do a denim challenge.  I was looking for something to add to the denim and came across some 4" vintage shirting squares that a friend of mine had given me.  At the same time, I had seen Yoko Saito's applique pattern featured in Quiltmania. Yoko's quilt was huge and I knew I would never finish it.  I used bits and pieces from her applique to top my denim and shirting background.  Love this quilt!  Yoko was very complimentary when she sent her email allowing me to enter it in a show.  It has been at Houston and Fall Paducah.

butterflies-dresdens-flowers-oohh-my
Name of Maker: Ave-Maria Reed

After finishing this Dresden quilt...I looked at it and knew I need to add "Ave-Maria" to it!..

It was created, designed, appliqued, quilted by me on my domestic machine.

Not the usual pattern, mine has 19 blades, hexagon center, lots of thread work, free motion quilting, decorative stitching.

This is how I dresden!

a-milagro-pondering
Name of Maker: Denise Buchwalter-Losczyk

"A Milagro Pondering" was made for the Quilting Arts February/March 2019 "Mended" Reader Challenge. It was published in the magazine. I entered it into the Miniature Art Quilt Category at the 2019 Houston IQF World of Beauty show and it was accepted. It was displayed in the show. My first time being accepted to the Houston Show, and my second entry there.

The words on the quilt are: "Sorrow interrupts the happiness of life, still life goes on, night, day, stars shine, birds sing, flowers grow and we heal our sorrows and marvel at the beauty that surrounds us." I was thinking of a dear friend and teacher who passed away when I made the quilt, and the words came to me as I worked on the quilt and design.
