  • My partner loves Dragonflies so that was the inspiration for the quilted gift for her.  Personal lives on both sides of the world got in the way of actually entering both quilts but it has now been gifted.  Painted, hand embroidered, digitized and machine embroidered dragonfly wings, free motion quilting were the techniques used to quilt this small quilt.  Made for the International Quilt Exchange.

Name of Maker: William Kane

My name is William Kane. My wife and I own a quilt shop in Berkshire County, Massachusetts. I have always wanted to make a miniature quilt but didn’t know what type. A friend of ours had made a full sized Amish quilt and when I saw it I knew this would work as my inspiration. When I joined the IMQE I now had the incintive to start ( and finish)! My IMQE partner, Elaine White, had told me she liked “some color” and I thought this project would have great color and contrast as well. The project was more challenging that I thought it would be as it used fairly small pieces (3/8 inch half square triangles, not paper pieced). I ma now in thhe process of making one for myself.

Miniature quilt Team 123.  My partner is from Canada and I live in Texas.  Carole & I discovered many things in common.  The one thing we did not share was that she is a professional quilter while I am not.  Oh mercy she is a professional!!  No pressure, right? 

 Well, I found Carol to be a delight. We both live in small towns  that have a  river and a  special bridge.  Her town has Inuksuk which are rocks stacked originally by the Aboriginal people, while our town has the International Rock Stacking competition. 

We choose “Happy” as our theme.   I wanted to design the project myself, but in the end I used a pattern by Kathryn Patterson called “The House That Kaffe Built” published in the 1997 McCalls.  This smaller paperpieced. version was published by McCallsQuilting.com in 2011.

 

It just seemed perfect for my partner.  It is houses made with Kaffe Fassett fabric, a designer I knew my partner liked.  I had just completed a project with his fabrics and loved the colors in his designs.  Plus she and her husband have built a new home and moved into it in 2017.  Now I am sure I choose the right project for my partner even though it is not my original design

This mini is a modern interpretation of a tic tac toe game and a comment on our complicated digital world.

Name of Maker: Sandra Thomas

This is one of my favorite Christmas projects to date.  The Christmas tree quilting on the border was done using Bonnie Browning's method of mathless borders using adding machine paper (see episode 609).  After tracing the trees onto adding machine paper I then transferred that design onto Golden Threads Quilting paper and quilted the borders.  This method worked very well; I will definitely use it again.   I enjoyed using various free motion quilt designs in the blocks.

Be part of an exhibition an meet somebody with the hobby patchwork. That was my goal! My partner and I quickly realized that we have a lot in common. After sharing pictures of our patchwork quilts we agreed to buy the same fat quarter package with beautiful batik fabric in the colors we love with the possibility to use more fabric. We also decided not to specify any design or block pattern.

But our friendship couldn't have been better! We participate in the life of the new friend and write what we are doing, send pictures and postcards. An absolutely great unique friendship!

Design: In the time of getting to know each other I wrote a poem "What I would like to do with you". The lines of the poem are framed by different block designs. "I wanna send you some stars" - the friendship star (six inch finished size) sewed from a picture from Judy Martin. "Sitting in a sea of roses" - that's what the big flower bowl stands for. Flowers cut out of the fabric flower print. Trapunto behind the big pink flower in the bowl and the pink dotted heart. So that the text of the poem merges with the background, I decided for a light background with additional fabrics for a scappy look.

Batting: Thermolam

Quilting: Stitch in the ditch or nearby the ditch with color matching yarn, free-motion around the flowers.

IMQE 2017 - I used half square triangles to create a "landscape" background for a sweet sea otter and cypress branch. I wanted to depict a scene common to my area for my exchange partner from the Netherlands. I am lucky enough to live just blocks from the ocean where I can watch otters floating in the kelp everyday.
