The Tide is Hire - Using a piecing technique learned from Dianne Hire, I made this quilt for (and it got into!) the Viking Masterpieces Exhibit "Imagine That." Pieced, Applique, beading, machine quilting.
Autumn on the Village Green - Made for the Rebecca Barker Challenge at the LaConner Quilt Museum, debuted Early 2005. Inspired by her notecard using the maple leaf block, which shows a New England white-steepled church.
A Different Direction - This quilt presented many challenges for me, from the Judy Mathieson mariner’s compass block to the other three attempts at finishing the quilt. I completed a whole other quilt from the blocks I tried out on this one. It was exhibited at the AQS Nashville show and has been accepted into the New Quilts of Northern California exhibit which will be at PIQF in the Fall.
Iris Love - This is my first totally all by myself quilt. It has won in many 1st Time Quilt catagories and 1st Place Ribbons. And of course I am very proud of it. I have made many quilts since 1998, but this one is still a favorite as it was made especially for my husband. It is hand appliqued and home machine quilted. It was made in the "quilt as you go method" of Georgia Bonesteel, and she judged it in the 1st Oklahoma City Winter show and awarded it first place. ;o)
Lunar Eclipse - After attending a class with Ricky Tims, and being so inspired that I REALLY COULD make a convergence quilt, I went home and made this quilt in one day. Later I appliqued' some pictures printed onto fabric of a lunar eclipse I had taken. It seemed as if they made a perfect theme.
Thank you, Ricky!!
Bionic Back II - Created for a call for orthopedic art. This is the 2nd quilt in the Bionic Back series. Photostitch embroidery design created from digital photo of my back xray after surgery in 2004, machine quilted.
