conflagration-desolation-rejuvenation-jubilation
Name of Maker: Vicki Conley

Forest fires in 2011 and 2012 threatened my home and wreaked havoc on my mountain town of Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico. Through the smoke and haze we watched helplessly, unable to do more than document the devastation from our back porch as the fires moved down the valley. Finally, after two weeks of much needed rain in the summer of 2013, green shoots of grass and undergrowth sprouted through the ash amid the charred remains of our precious trees. When this new growth blossomed into brilliant yellow wild flowers carpeting the whole burned mountainside, I was suffused with hope for the future of our home and community. To reflect the transition from devastation to new life I generated a silk screen from one of my photographs and printed it on pieced backgrounds reflecting the stages of renewal in my surroundings.

a-b-sea-for-ewe-and-me
Name of Maker: Andrée Bergeron

This quilt is a half-size version ot the Block of the Month 2014, by Janet Stone.  As I chose my colors each month, I saw the "sea" theme developping, so I changed some of the blocks to fit with that theme:  the S with a Storm-at-sea block, the N with a Nautilus block, and the H with a house by the sea.  I changed a few elements in the borders: I chose starfish and a few seashells, and the bottom border is completely different and has my favorite block, the Mariner's compas.

This quilt was made as a housewarming/friendship quilt for a dear friend in the UK. We met through TQS and although we have never met "In Person" we share many interests such as quilting, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. . . and we are both retired nurses. Here's to you Yvonne Jenkins!

Name of Maker: Carol Ann Freda

quilt-of-many-colors-2
Name of Maker: Judeen

Saw similair quilt on Pinterest there was not pattern using lots of 2½" strips (traded at quilt guild for years) I charted out the design. Husband had challenged me to "use up all my leftover pieces" so that is what is on the back. He likes the back better. It was not easy sewing the back because there are lots of different angles and lots of strech when basting and quilting. Just used a simple Serpintine stitch for quilting. 

window-to-the-world-oh-the-possibilities
Name of Maker: Dianne H. Morgan

I made this quilt after I took an online quilt class that Lea McComas did on The Quilt Show.  It is based on a picture I took f my grandson when he was 18 months old.  He was at my backdoor looking out the window of the storm door.  It made me think of him looking out at all the possibilities in his future.  This quilt was juried into and exhibited at both AQS Quiltweek Daytona 2018 and AQS Quiltweek Spring Paducah 2018.  Though it did not win any prizes, I felt it was a winner just being in these two AQS shows.

casey-s-adventure
Name of Maker: Edie Phillips

This was inspired by my Berner puppy Casey's first walk in the fall leaves.  Background  is crazy pieced with batiks. The leaves are from the fabrics I paint in the hot summer months.  His body is raw edge applique.  I used 40wt. rayon for the thread painting and the leave background.
