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!
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.
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.
Baby Nine-Patch
Name of Maker: Rachel Siracuse
Baby Nine-Patch - This fun baby quilt was made with scraps of soft colors and waits for a future grandchild to belong to. The pattern is the Nine Patch Party Quilt from Eleanor Burns. This is the first scalloped border I have ever made and the appliqued flowers are stuffed with batting making them dimensional. It is quilted on a domestic machine with a grid pattern.
