Contemporary Art/Art Quilting Basics
Name of Maker: lee of AniLee & Stephanie Forsyth
Contemporary Art/Art Quilting Basics - This was my first attempt at contemporary art quilting. Stephanie kept trying to get me to step out of my traditional quilt mode into more creative quilting. She helped me work on this and then taught the class at my shop. It was so much fun. It even inspired me to enter a piece in the MN Quilt Show Challenge "Sew Many Northern Lights" in 2006. I think there are more art quilts in my future.

1000 Cranes
Name of Maker: Florence Barnick and others
1000 Cranes - I made this quilt for my Mom the year she was undergoing treatment for Leukemia. With the help of about 30 (?) volunteers from the internet, we made 180 paper-pieced cranes. Using a backing fabric with origami crane images, and outline quilting all of the cranes on the front, there are over 1000. The legend of the 1000 paper cranes dates back to a young girl exposed to radiation after the nuclear bombing of Japan in WWII, and she came down w/ Leukemia, so I thought it was right for my mom. All of the prayers that went into the piecing worked, she is in full remission.
