Shining Stars
Name of Maker: blk94vette
Shining Stars - Quilt is made of 100 small 5" stars and over two hunderd small strips in the inner border. The bright colors on the black background have a strong visual impact but the flow of the colors across the stars draws your eye across the entire quilt. This was my first attempt at making such small blocks where every point and intersection would be so visible. It took a lot of time and patience but the end results were worth it. It was made as a gift to a woman who coached my daughter for years, as our way of saying Thank You for all the time and effort she put in for the girls.
Sunset At The Lake
Name of Maker: blk94vette
Sunset At The Lake - This quilt was designed for the 2005 Hoffman challange but the hand quilting took too long for me to complete so it never got a chance to be entered. Now it hangs on my wall where I love to look at it. I spent my evenings sitting on the deck overlooking the lake we live next to as I hand quilted this. The colors are bright and bold just the way I like them. I used templates from Just Curves for getting the nice smooth curves and the curvemaster foot helped with the piecing. I changed the original pattern to move the quilt center on point, then I changed the colorization to enhance the flow of color through the center, and changed the borders to make better use of the challange fabric. A 2" sleeve on the back is used for hanging. It has been hung in one exhibition only.
Napa at Sunset
Name of Maker: Deb Karasik
Napa at Sunset - This quilt was a challenge in that I used colors I wasn't comfortable with, mixed fabrics that were challenging (particularly the silk dupion) and piecing techniques I'd never done before.
Wayward Geese
Name of Maker: Deb Karasik
Wayward Geese - I try to challenge myself with every quilt I make. This quilt was no exception. The piecing was intricate and difficult, with curves going in several directions in each block. I have to admit...I got very friendly with my seam ripper putting this quilt together!
