Dad's House Plan - A memorial quilt honoring my dad, a civil engineer, whose dream to build a home for his family was overtaken by life and illness. House design plots quilted with four sizes of threads; House is appliqued, landscaping is both in-the-hoop embroidery I designed, decorative stitches, and free motion thread work highlighted with inks.

Equipped to Stand
Name of Maker: Betty Jo Tatum
Equipped to Stand - Based on Eph 6 to put on the whole armor of God so we can be equipped to stand in the day of evil. Juried into Mancuso's Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival 2012.
Quiet Celebration
Name of Maker: Betty Jo Tatum
Quiet Celebration - My 2011 Hoffman Challenge quilt. There are really too many flowers for a traditional Ikebana arrangement she is making, but it seems to work. I see her as a little older Geisha on a quiet day celebrating something special as she arranges her beautiful flowers. The Japanese characters say Celebrate beauty and woman or womanhood.
Flying Together Through Life
Name of Maker: Betty Jo Tatum
Flying Together Through Life - FIrst of an ongoing series of miniature quilts in memory of my husband Marvin. All commercial cotton fabrics, machine embroidered leaves and cattails, machine quilted with silk. Ducks inspired by a Dover coloring book picture.
Stellar Nursery
Name of Maker: Betty Jo Tatum
Stellar Nursery - This quilt is inspired by a NASA photo called Mountains of Creation, which lies at the eastern edge of the giant stellar nursery W5, about 7000 light years from the constellation Cassiopeia. I blogged the making of this quilt in TQS Member Blogs under "The Great Gas Cloud Adventure" series of 7 blogs, if you want to read them. Accepted into the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival 2010 exhibit/contest.
