Spice Market

Pieced By     Beth Couch

Quilted By   Beth Couch

 

The colors of this piece are inspired by the spices and chilis of a spice market. I haven’t been quilting for very long, so I had a lot of fun making blocks I’ve never made before, some are traditional, and some are unique. It is an original design and created to be hung in my living/quilting room.

MY SWEET ROSIE

Pieced By     Marie Powell

Quilted By   Marie Powell

 

 

A Featherweight collage pattern designed by Laura Heine from Billings, Montana. I had fun finding fabrics and motifs that make up this collage. My beautiful Singer Featherweight machine was made in 1941. She is a treasure to me.

Poinsettia Wall Hanging

Pieced By     Monique Plamondon

Quilted By   Monique Plamondon

 

I love everything Christmas and wanted to explore using different materials for a wall hanging. I used a red Applique Glitter Sheet (from KimberBell) to add a sparkly petal to each flower and used a metallic thread in the flower centers. I then hot glued some crystals to make the background “snow” sparkle

Exercise in Sashiko Stitching

Pieced By    Kathryn Welch

Quilted By   Kathryn Welch

 

 

I joined the Alison Glass Stitch Club in 2020. One month was exploring types of sashiko stitching. There was no specific project, so I just experimented with different stiches on Japanese fabric that I had been collecting for a number of years. I joined the pieces together to form a tote – I like the end result! Turn the bag to see all sides

Dinner Placemats

Pieced By     Jeni Overbey

Quilted By    Jeni Overbey

 

 

Eight placemats with a half-hexagon braid down the left side. I did a little hand stitching and some machine quilting. The backs have bee fabric – as the Overbey family, we love bees!

Diamonds in Miniature

Pieced By     Sandi Harmon

Quilted By    Sandi Harmon

 

 

This is a miniature quilt that I designed after seeing wall tile with a similar design. I paper-pieced the blocks to keep the lines straight and accurate. The strips end up at about ¼ of an inch width.

2020: Fractured (and now the 2021 Uphill Climb Back to "Normal")

Pieced By     Janice Johner

Quilted By   Janice Johner

 

The technique used to create this Wallhanging is called “Fracturing.” I learned it in a class at Around the Block quilt shop in Cheyenne, WY, taught by Sue Freirich, a talented quilter who now lives in CA. As I was making the Wallhanging, it became clear that it represented what 2020 felt like to me. I felt “fractured,” like a broken bone or a broken glass. Many painful things happened — isolation and loss because of Covid, racial unrest, political unrest, wildfires, the death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. The cranes flying upward represent RESILIENCE and HOPE for the future.

Rainbow Stitches

Pieced By     Rebecca Ivanova

Quilted By   Rebecca Ivanova

 

I joined the Alison Glass Stitch Club in the summer of 2020, and this pillow was one of the projects. All the quilting, running stitches, were done by hand using Wonderfil perle cotton. This is definitely my favorite pillow that I made last year!

COLORADO

Pieced By     Diane Arnett

Quilted By   Diane Arnett

 

 

As a Colorado native, I grew up doing and living around these pictures. When I saw this kit, I fell in love with it and just had to make it.
