Beautiful Colorado

Pieced By     Becky Schwendeman

Quilted By   Donna Smith


The panels were purchased at the 2020 Colorado Shop Hop. The quilt design was inspired from a quilt pattern “Experience Colorado” by Na-La’s Quilt Shoppe, Fountain, CO. I made it for my son and daughter-in-law because it represents everything they love about the outdoors and it’s a reminder of Beautiful Colorado!

Journey of a Quilter

Pieced By     Sue Stortz

    Quilted By    Janet Mason


I first saw this quilt designed by Leanne Beasley in an issue of Homespun Magazine. Since my love is embroidery, I knew I wanted to make the quilt. Unfortunately, it was only available to those living in Australia. Sometime later, I saw that Buggy Barn Quilts here in the US was offering it as a block of the month project. I immediately signed up. It was a project that was begun, then put away (but not forgotten). Finally, the timing was right, and I became serious about finishing the quilt.

Halloween Night

                 Pieced By     Rebecca Ivanova

                 Quilted By   Nessie Longarm Quilting


Halloween Night was made as a sampler quilt in the summer of 2019, in an attempt to improve my piecing skills. All those little half square triangles definitely did that! The fabric is a mix of quilting cottons and batiks, which is the first time I’ve done both in the same quilt. The pattern is Witch’s Night Out, and the quilting pattern is Trick or Treat from Urban Elementz.

Autumn Stars

Quilted By   Jan Timmons

There is no great story for this quilt. I just wanted to get it done! When I first started quilting, I won a block of the month which was these Ohio stars made with autumn fabric. I finally sewed them together about 3 years ago but did not quilt them until this year.

Turtle Tide

Pieced By     Dawn Hunter

Quilted By   Dawn Hunter



This is from the Maggie Ball book ‘Bargello Quilts with A Twist’. A friend brought me a turtle batik fabric from Pearl Harbor, HI. It was the shop’s own print so not available anywhere else. I waited several years for the right quilt pattern to call out for those turtles and finally made this in a workshop with Maggie.

Modern Walk

        Pieced By     Wendy Crawford

Quilted By   Cara Cansler


This quilt is a great example of “modern” quilting – low volume print background, solids, and “missing”/negative spaces. It was inspired by a photo from Debbie Shannon (@sparethreads) on Instagram. I adapted it slightly, and it was quilted by Cara Cansler in “Merge” from the Longarm League. This quilt will eventually be given to the Outreach Committee.
