On to the “Big Quilt Room” of the show:
What a charming quilt! Geri Richardson designed and appliqued “9 Lives Plus 3”, featuring 12 months of cats. Quilted by Shireen Hattan.
Sandi Fong made and quilted “Hearty Heart of Hearts” to do double duty as a Valentine’s quilt and for her anniversary. The feather quilting was beautiful.
This was one of my favorites. Suzie Quinnell made and quilted “Zenspiration”. She combined traditional log cabin blocks, zentangled blocks, silk and some fabulous quilting to make this gorgeous quilt.
I love this quilt! Donna Brennan made and pieced “Quilty Qwerty” and I love how effectively she used value and color. Donna used guild member Judy Sisneros’ Circle Pizzazz pattern and a collection of typewriter/bird/stamp and print fabrics.
There were two of these Block of the Month appliqued quilts in the show and I had the best photo of Patty Blesso’s “Spring Bouquet”. Gorgeous quilting by Debra Lopez and what fun colors!
This simple periwinkle quilt, “Modern Periwinkle Paisley”, made and quilted by Deb Winterling just tugged on my heart-so sweet, so simple, just beautiful.
Shireen Hattan embroidered and quilted Hoop Sisters Feathered Star”, a Block of the Month quilt. Shireen used silk, satin and lame to give a very luxe look to this gorgeous quilt.
Pam Burke designed “In a Galaxy Far Far Away” to include a number of Mariner’s Compass blocks she had pieced. Quilted by Shireen Hattan. I admire anyone who can make a good Mariner’s Compass!
Janeen Lafreniere made and quilted “Jumbrella”-a charming quilt that was one of the audience favorites.
Helen Hardwick made and pieced “Quilt for a Fireman” for her husband’s friend. He preferred another design and declined on this quilt! The yellow/reds are hand dyes and the gray/black a commercial ombre.
Claudia Norman embroidered and quilted “Golden Goose”, a Hoop Sisters Design. I love the colors and flow of this quilt. He was not listed on the program but I think Skip helped a little!
I received Best of Show for my “Morning Breeze”-my very first BOS! I also received Viewer’s Choice. It delights me that others enjoy my work. I love the plantings in my yard so if others enjoy this quilt, I feel like I’m walking my yard with them, pointing out the beauty of the plants and how gorgeous they are in the wind.
