This art quilt is fused on a black background leaving a space between shapes to show a black outline. it has more than 500 pieces and while it was time-consuming it was worth and a lot of fun. it just won a second place award.
"Scrap-Patch Hearts" - Baby quilt made for Grandaughter. Is made using a variety of colorful fabrics with white on white polkadot background. Completed July 5, 2009. Was machine quilted on a Domestic Machine using stitch in the ditch.
"Seaside" - This fabric is one of a kind. Was printed up for Heartbeat Quilts in Hyannis, Ma. They sold the fabric bythe yard and also in kits for quilts. I purchased the kit and did it all winter long. I had Maureen Anderson do the long arm quilting. We both belong to Hering Run Quilting Guild. I have also entered it in the Quilters TV new seashore themed challenge.
"Sedona Starburst" - This quilt and the on below will be auctioned March 13 14 at Friendship Knot Quilters Guild Show. It Was designed in Corel Draw starting with Ricky's Rhapsody design techniques. I then put a Betty Spin on it. I added piecing and then painted and printed it in my home printer
"SKINZ" - This quilt makes use of the "Turning Twenty" quilt block. It has been done using various animal print fabrics. I was fortunate enough to be in Kansas City area attending MQS this year and while there found the animal panels at a little fabric store in Overland Park, Ks.
I had already put the top together, but when I arrived home I took it apart in the center and placed the panels. They were a perfect marriage for the quilt. Oh, by the way, my Mom and Dad absolutely love it.
"Southwest Sunrise" - Sunrise photographs my son, ( JerryMac Lochala), took at a mission close to Houston. I printed them onto fabric and enhanced the fabric pictures with quilting and fabric frames.
Lots of Fun!
"Spaced Out" - I made the small beige blocks (5 3/4") and then decided to float them in the quilt. So each large 12 inch block has a beige block floating somewhere in it. I did this to create floating images. I made this for a prayer quilt for a man that has not be given out yet. It will have some prayer ties once it is determined who will receive it.
"Spin Out" - Our guild had a workshop in which we learned to make a "cheater" monkey wrench block. I designed this setting so my quilt would be different from the others. Also it made it large enough for a king-sized bed.
"Split OaK" Near Land Bridge Trail Head - Both halves of this “Split Oak” are still alive. It is near the Land Bridge Trailhead of the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway in Ocala, FL. This is a section of the Florida National Scenic Trail to reach the Land Bridge that crosses Interstate 75 and is a safe passage for hikers, equestrians and bicyclists. I used the "Scribble Applique" technique Ricky teaches in the Super Quilt Seminar.
"Springtime in Japan" 2 ribbon winner & AQS juried - I am proud to say that this quilt was juried into the AQS show Nashville 2005. It got a 1st place ribbon at another show as well as an honorable mention at another. So happy ! What started out as a "1 block" piece for the wall, escalated into a whole quilt. It was quilted in gold metallic Sulky Holoshimmer thread.
"Star Light, Star Bright" - This child's quilt is named "Star Light Star Bright" from QIAD's newest book "Day and Night". It is being submitted for a trunk show in the QIAD tent in Paducah, KY at the Quilt show. All quilts shown will then be donated to a women's shelter. This is the first time to try the pattern so made up a lap size.
"Stars for a New Day" - My version of the Block of the month 2009. I used fabrics from my stash, starting with the purple paisley and building out from that with colors from the paisley and others that seemed to "play" together.
"Stop and Smell the Rose Garden" (1st place) - Michael Miller's wonderfully delicious pink pastel floral fabric seemed the perfect piece to inspire creation of this 86 x 64" 103-kaleidoscopic garden of roses entitled "Stop and Smell the Rose Garden." It was entirely pieced and quilted by me on my Bernina 440-QE. The original design is Linda Causee's "Wacky Wedge". I adore it so much that I've made 7 of them! I am very proud to say that this quilt was juried into the Denver National Quilt Festival's "Peak of Perfection" May 3-6, 2007 and won a 1st place Blue Ribbon at the New Braunfels Area Quilt Guild Quilt Show here in Texas at "Stitchin' in the Garden" July 21-23 2006.
