final-flight
Name of Maker: Peggy Garbers

Designed by me after my daughter died.  Quilt top appliqued by me, machinequilted by Ann Marie Miro

A Winter's  Night
Name of Maker: Joyce R Becker

I was inspired by a Japanese fabric that included the trees and background fabric. The fabric had to be manipulated in order to make a level forest and I added additional trees in the forground. I added textile paint and inks on the snow and the rocks and used an ombre Stonehenge fabric for the sky and the water. The sky fabric blends with the Japanese sky fabric. I added rheinstones for the stars and it is quilted heavily with a Wonderfil Tutti variegated thread.

 

fishies-2
Name of Maker: HEATHER LYNN GOMEZ

This fun fishie quilt is a combination of TQS techniques. First, I used Paula Doyle's method of easy stack to make the fabulous blocks then had to cut out the fishie appliques. Second, I used Susan Clevland's Prairie Pointer tool and techniques for the embroidered prairie points. When I free-motion quilted,I used Lori Kennedy's continuous fish design all over and I echoed the fishie appliques. The back is coral reef fabric so under this quilt you are definitely under the sea!

holy-cathedral-windows
Name of Maker: HEATHER LYNN GOMEZ

Our guild was having a cathedral windows class that I could not attend so I searched YouTube and found The Masquerade site and she made it entirely by machine! She showed the difference between hand and machine stitched samples, so informative, and once you make your first little package, you need to make more. Also figured since they're "church" blocks Jesus had to be represented! Can't really be called a quilt since there is no batting, wanted it see-through to hang in front of a window. There are also 36 Perfect Circles(Karen Kay Buckley!) that are SO fun to make with her tools and technique.

tree-of-life-3
Name of Maker: Lina Kozak

This quilt was made from a dear Grandmothr’s silk scarves and a few of her embroidered handkerchiefs that she made herself.  Her Grandchildren asked me to make it for their Mother.  Truly a family keepsake that will be passed down for years.

blue-ain-t-your-color
Name of Maker: Connie R.

Completed the 2018 BOM quilt in July 2019...yay!!! Entering it in the August 2019 Monterey County Fair. Named it after one of my favorite Keith Urban songs.

lady-of-shalott-2
Name of Maker: Brigitte Bloch

It took me quite a while to finally start and finish Ricky's block of the month pattern "Lady of Shalott". It was  a lot of fun and I learned a lot using Ricky's technique.

pop-chef
Name of Maker: judyc

Made for a MCQA challenge, "Pop Portraits" inspired by works of Laurie Ceesay. Can you guess the subject's name?

bride-s-ribbon
Name of Maker: Terrie Welch

This is not a quilt, but the idea did come from The Quilt Show. Alex showed how to make a ribbon with the bride and groom’s names on it. I made one for a very special friend who got married today. She loves it!

into-the-mystic
Name of Maker: Karen Snedeker

This wall hanging is for my niece who is a scuba diver, her choice for transformation into a mystical mermaid.  In case it doesn't show up well in the photo, the quilting on the mermaid, her hair, the swans and in the section where the words are is all done in metallic glitter thread. It was a challenge to sew it without breakage, but I'm very happy with the impact in free motion quilting.  

autumn-bouquet
Name of Maker: Edie Phillips

This is the third in my series of  Flower bouquets.  All the fabrics are hand painted. I took  photos of lots of flowers from my gardens. I then made patterns of eeach. This is raw edge appliqque. There are dozens of different thread colors in all the flowers.

it-s-autumn
Name of Maker: NA

I love the autumn so it shows up in alot of my work. This piece is original design. Raw edge applique and  free motion quilting.

o-canada-my-soul-belongs-to-thee
Name of Maker: Fiona Schiffl

This picture pieced quilt took about 18 months over 4.5 years to make. There’s ~6000 pieces not including the individual patches of batiste sewn in with every light grey and white piece. These were there to hide the seam allowances. Pieces start from the size of a pin head and work their way up. With that amount of seams, they are not going to sit nicely even in an alternate universe. Natural trapunto??? Many days of full time work would only produce about a 4” square of quilt. The quilt doesn’t photograph well. There is also a layer of batiste either side of the batting to help stabilise the quilt.

I noticed one night that the reflection of the quilt in the window gave it a lot more depth and looks very different. There’s a photo of it in reverse on my blog fionaschiffl.com along with the more in depth story of the quilt. I also noticed an almost full sized face looking up in the rocks. 

I love Lake Louise and I feel I’m really a Canadian trapped in an Australian’s body. If you can’t go to Canada, bring Canada to Australia is my motto.

This quilt got me through some of the worst and best times of my life. Looking at this photo in detail becoming a quilt was a blessing during this time. I’m glad to say I’ve done a lot of healing! 

The quilt won runner up (2nd place) in pictorial quilts in our state show so I’m over the moon.

Quilt size 165.5cm x 105cm. It weighs 2 kilos.
