‘This is my version of Halo Medallion BOM.  It is made of Halloween fabrics.

my-very-first-quilt-2
Name of Maker: Diane Oster

I wanted to learn how to quilt and this was the pattern I selected as my very first intro into quilting.  I loved the piecing, but not so much the quilting and binding. It has been sitting in my sewing room unfinished for too many years.  I finally decided it was time to get some of my UFOs completed, and this is the first one I worked on.  I used my emboridery machine to do all the quilting, and that was a first as well.  I learned a lot since I started on this quilt, and have ejoyed my journey of quilting. It all started with this quilt.

b-w-plus-1-rhapsody
Name of Maker: Christine Waddell

 A quilt begun when Ricki did the Rhapsody lessons and not completed until 2016. I used my Accuquilt cutter to cut the applique. I had started as an entry for our Black and white and one other colour challenge. I finished for our UFO challenge.

spinning-out-of-control-2
Name of Maker: Christine Waddell

I wanted to try making an 8 pointed star and when that was done it sat in a box.Fast forward to 2017 at the Tangled Threads Quilt Guild and we did a quiz to see wwhat kind of block we were. My answers indicated that I was a star block. The challenge: make something with your block hence in my case "star". I took this out of the box and pondered what to do: Medallion quilt Ok I set it on point and got stuck there and did a smaller challenge with my "hunter star" block.
Back at the design wall I desided to use Ricki's curved piecing with freezer paper a modification of the rhapsody concept. The quilt got carried over to our UFO challenge for this year. I added applique pieces to represent fragments flying off my spinning star. (Note: my motto is "Done is better than perfect"

stars-for-a-new-day-expanded
Name of Maker: Dwynette Valenti

Enthusiastically, as soon as it came out, I began working on the 2009 BOM, Stars for a New Day, but as work and health interfered, I lost interest and set it aside half-done.  Then 3 years ago, when my son announced his engagement to his earliest childhood best friend, I showed it to her, asked if she would like it as a wedding gift, and explained that she would have to patiently wait until it was done.  It needed to be bed-spread sized for a king bed, so I first had to decide how I might make that happen.  She did not want a pillow tuck, either.  Working with the height of their bed, and the sizes of the rows, I began adding to the quilt, first by making a wider spacer that fit perfectly along the 3 edges of the bed, and helps to frame the patchwork and give the eye a place to rest when the quilt is on the bed.  After completing the piecing, I long-arm custom quilted it, adding their names and wedding date in the bottom corners.  The quilt has no less than 5730 pieces of fabric and over 1.14 miles of custom, hand-guided stitching.

 

 

 

 

holy-trinity
Name of Maker: Judy Flether

I wanted to create a pieced Trinity Knot in honor of my Celtic Heritage.

 Most Trinity Knots are applique, but I wanted it to be pieced. The center Trinity Knot measures 27 X 27 inches, and I pieced it with Batik fabric and Quilted on my longarm

 

 

colorful-colorado-medallian
Name of Maker: Sharon Engel

This quilt certainly was challanging for me, but I perservered and am thoroughly happy with the final result. 

The focus fabric in the center was a Colorado Shop fabric from about 6 years and used all I had on this quilt.

There are hummingbirds, columbines, etc. and I just love it.  In each corner of the quilt I fussy cut 4

hummingbirds for the center of each block.  This quilt will become a wedding present in 2019 after I enter

it into some quilt shows.
