Corona

In March 2020 my quilt group and I went on a quilting retreat at Allenspark. I purchased this pattern from Laundry Baskets. I started cutting the quilt at the retreat. Coming down the Mountain my daughter called me and told me about the shut down and the Corona virus. I put it aside for a while but did finish it. Its a beautiful quilt.

Wish Upon a Star

   Quilted By    Dayna Greenleaf

 

Pattern: Red at Night by Pat Syka.  I took this class because it was the first workshop I could do zoom during the pandemic.  I loved the stars and thought it would be fun.  I changed the colors to blue and black to showcase the stars.

Australian Walkabout

I fell in love with this fabric immediately because it reminds me of our trip. I learned about the Aborigine people when we were in Australia. The Aboriginal people pain only with small dots.

Kilig

Pieced By     Alison Doberstein

Quilted By   Alison Doberstein & Jan Timmons

 

Kilig means in the Tagalog language – “the jittery fluttering feeling as you talk to someone you fancy”. I think that encapsulates my feeling when I look at this quilt.. I designed this quilt myself and is the most complicated design I have made so far and am very proud of it!

Painted Forest

Pieced By     Lorilynn King

Quilted By   Lorilynn King

 

I have loved the Painted Forest pattern ever since I first saw it. I decided to make three rows of trees rather than two, and used dark shades of green, turquoise and blue to set off the bright colored trees. I look forward to using this quilt when I’m sitting in my recliner working on the computer this winter

My sister, niece and I made this quilt to give to my Mom on her 80th birthday. We chose this pattern because of her love of flowers. There are 80 flowers, one for each year.

Glass Fusion

Pieced By    Rebecca Ivanova

Quilted By   Rebecca Ivanova

 

This was a 100 blocks in 100 days challenge that I joined in 2019. I actually got all the blocks done within that time! The top I pieced a few months later, but put off quilting it. After deciding to start my own longarm business, I was finally able to quilt it in May 2021. The pattern is Kinship Fusion by Gnome Angel, with Kona cotton solids and the Sunprint light by Alison Glass.

Good 'N' Plenty

                    Pieced By     Wendy Crawford and Others

                        Quilted By    Cara Cansler

 

This quilt was started in 1993, as an exchange group in the early days of the internet, with a set of state/star patterns from Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine. I decided I wanted the entire set of 50 stars. Over the years, I added one or two at a time. When my mom died in 2012, I put the whole thing in a box (she was a part of the original exchange group). I pulled it out in 2019, and finished it in January 2020. Cara quilted it with “Dissent” (reminiscent of RBG’s “dissent” collar) from the Longarm League.
