Starry Night

Pieced By     Mira Clayborn

Quilted By   Mary Jane Voogt

 

My 12-year-old granddaughter Mira asked me to make her a quilt for her bed. Since she had sewed several times with me I asked her not only to choose the pattern and colors, but to do cutting and piecing with me, sewing together at two machines in my quilting space. What a treat! She chose this design by Bev Getschel (which Bev titled Fiddler on the Roof) from Quilter’s World autumn 2016. The whole experience was so joyful!

Cactus Blossom

Pieced By     Pat Wick

Quilted By   Pat Wick

 

I completed the top of this quilt quite a few years ago. I finally quilted it for this quilt show. The pattern is Cactus Flower by Jazz Cat Designs. I took class from the designer, Irene Huffman. The colors remind me of a small cactus we had in our yard in Tucson. Each spring these gorgeous fuchsia blooms would appear.

Tropical Thangles

Pieced By     Dawn Hunter

Quilted By   Dawn Hunter

 

This quilt was offered as a Thangles Block of the Month at a quilt shop long gone. Each month, if you brought in the previous month’s block completed, you got the next block pattern free; otherwise, you had to pay $1. Needless to say, I had to pay for most of the month’s patterns but I did eventually finish the quilt.

Diamonds Are Forever

Pieced By     Marta Oakley

Quilted By   Nancy Jackson

 

Several years ago, I (Marta), opened the pages of a Fons and Porter and loved a quilt using batiks. Not having the right fabric or knowing how to make stars I started making the quilt. Acknowledging my limitations, I simplified the pattern

Buttons-Buttons

Pieced By     Nancy Jackson

Quilted By   Nancy Jackson

 

I had just taken a Machine embroidery class with my machine and wanted to make a quilt to embroidery. I designed the quilt with this in mind. First time using the embroidery designs on my machine (Bernina 765).

Autumn 9-patch

Pieced By     Becky O’Rourke

Quilted By   Becky O’Rourke

 

I made this quilt in an attempt to use up some of my stash of reproduction civil war era fabrics. I didn’t use a pattern but I’m certainly not the first quilter to pair 9-patch and quarter square blocks. I like the secondary pattern made by the combination of the two simple blocks. Quilted on 9″ Juki on a Little Gracie frame. I chose 6″ blocks so I could quilt a row without rolling the quilt back and forth and was pleased with the feathers, swirls and continuous curve design which I was able to quilt continuously for each row.
