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!

final-flight
Name of Maker: Peggy Garbers

Designed by me after my daughter died.  Quilt top appliqued by me, machinequilted by Ann Marie Miro

owls-for-alex
Name of Maker: Mary Vick

Quilt for my daughters 3rd child, Alex.   She likes Owls, so I made a baby owl with an owl familly---mom, dad, brothers and both granmas and grandpas.

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!
