Name of Maker: Florence Parrish Moore-my grandmother
Wool Lap Quilt-Stay warm in College - This lap quilt was created in the early 1960's by my grandmother for me to use a college to keep warm when the heat didn't work. It is made of wool that she or my father had made into clothes for members of our family. I recognize 3 different wool pieces that I know I wore during the 1950's & 60"s. Some of the rectangles are patched so that they are the correct size for the quilt. This attests to my gradmothers frugal use of every scrap of fabric. I remember playing with her scraps as a child and learning to sew first from her at a very young age (5-10). The quilts has been secured tofether by tying with wool yarn.
Wool Flowers - I saw this quilt at a quilt show in Charleston, SC, and ordered it as a BOM. I like to embroider by hand so learning to sew with wool was terrific. I plan to do echo quilting by hand to finish it.
Woof Woof - I used EQ6 to design this quilt and based it on one of their patterns. I also scanned the fabrics so I could see what it would look like with the fabrics I chose. I quilted it on my Viking Megaquilter and the quilting pattern just says "woof woof woof" all the way across the quilt. Gale is a dog lover.
Woodstock Revisited - This quilt started as a one of a kind tie dyed sheet, the minute I saw it I could see it quilted and embellished, There are embroidered peace signs,flowers, 1800 crystals and 1000 holograms. I put the names of 20 performers at Woodstock on the back of the quilt.
Woodland Walk - Early morning dog walks in the woods always seem to involve breaking through several spider's webs. This quilt is embellished with a beaded spider, crocheted web, real socks and boot laces.
Woodland Flora - I made this quilt after taking a class from Ellen Anne Eddy. I used metallic thread, perle cottons, bobbin work, yarn couching etc. This is great fun, as the quilt evolves layer upon layer.
Woodland Creatures - Started in 2005 but moved so finished in 2011. My first ever entry into a quilt show and won 1st place, second quilt show won Best Use of Color and Viewer's Choice, 3rd quilt show won Honorable Mention. Sewn entirely by machine.
Wooden Houses - Inspired by traditional house patterns and Robert Kaufman Home Improvement fabric line. Entered in the Robert Kaufman 2007 Miniature Contest and I’m so happy to be included in the touring collection with a stop in Houston!!! 961 1/2" squares quilted with silk thread. Back is one large pieced house.
