What do we mean? Take a look at the Flora Joy's quilt, Frame of Mind, that won the Viewer's Choice Award at Houston Quilt Festival 2014.



The last issue of The Quilt Life will be the October 2014 issue. Alex and Ricky want to thank editor "supreme" Jan Magee and photographer Gregory Case for their excellent work. The magazine was a readers delight. Great themes, great stories, great quilts and great quilters. 

Here are the covers NOT including the October Issue (which we haven't seen yet). Check out all the fun themes the magazine covered.

Robbie Joy Eklow brings together spirals, gears and amazing quilting in this stunning quilt. Robbie (Show 1008) put this aside for several years after dying all the fabric and then brought it out and finally finished it. "It's About Time".

At Paducah 2014, Thelma Childers displayed her quilt "Evening Bloom".  Thelma learned hand applique and finished about one block a month. The quilt was quilted on a longarm by Judi Madsen. Judi use many designs to enhance the applique.

Be sure to move all around the quilt to see the different styles of quilting. Will some of these approaches work for your quilt?




Every year at the show there is a tent displaying the work of the faculty who teach during the week prior to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.  Here is some of their work that was displayed.
