Let’s look at the Big Quilt Room of the Folsom Quilt and Fiber Guild Show:
A Toby Lischko design. Nancy put it on point and chose a brown colorway to hang in her nature-inspired home in Tahoe.
Susan redesigned the pattern for her daughter’s Cal King. Beautiful quilting enhances the design.
Kaffe stripes and an off-handed remark in a Christine Barnes workshop gave Marie the inspiration to create this beauty.
The block pattern go back to 1800/early 1099’s. Esther is a superb hand quilter and but did a fabulous job machine quilting this on a domestic machine. Exquisite applique.
Pattern from Minick and Simpson. Charming! Lin added just the right amount of quilting.
This replaces her son’s first quilt. Made on a cross-country trip when Susan wanted large blocks. Because it is flannel, the colors are so deep – love brown and blue.
Oh this quilt was stunning and won Best of Show. This is an adaptation of a Halo Medallion by Sue Garman. Sandy dedicated this to her husband for 39 years of “Starlight Rhapsody”.
Sandy is a master of her machine, custom digitally quilted.
Pattern is Star of Wonder by Judy Martin. Helen changed the colors to accent the flower in the center. Those points are per-fect. Fabulous quilting by Sandy.
A smaller version of “When the Cold Wind Doth Blow” by Blackbird Designs. Hand appliqued baskets and hand quilting by Lyndia. Just beautiful.
It took 4 years and a few detours to complete this quilt. Brilliant use of ombre fabrics.
The title describes how Danya feels about her grandson. She uploaded her photo to youpatch.com and made 100 6″ blocks , some with more than 30 pieces!
From a pattern by Cherry House Quilts. I love brown and blue!
Started in a Karla Alexander class but Judy used curvy rulers for construction. It was challenging to make the outer corners fit with all those curves. Beautiful quilting.
Made for a dear friend who loves Hawaiian shirts. She sewed the shirt labels to the back of the quilt.
Joan loves these relaxing colors from a Bali Pop. Fun quilting.
I love the way Karen arranged the colors, my eye flows around the quilt.
Made from a kit from Sew Creative in Ashland, OR. Sue combined wool, cotton and flannel. So dang cute!
From a Judy Neimeyer pattern. What patience! It does sparkle when you stand back.
Made with help from friends Kathy Butler and Martha Travis. I looove the disappearing tips on some of the stars, it makes the quilt flutter.
A new sofa created a need for a new quilt. Used “Zen Chic” by Brigittee Heitland. Edited use of color; love those fabrics, reminds me of ties.
Donna is more of an art quilter but committed herself to finishing the BOM from 2010, adding blocks from Edyta Sitar. The baskets are “old friends”. She used the quilt-as-you-go method I describe in my book to quilt this on her domestic machine.
BOM from 2017, Sue Garman. Shireen used her Accuquilt to avoid paper piecing the outer borders. Love this happy quilt!
Started out as a “leader/ender” project. Dawn Licker donated her stash and it “only” took 3 years, 1512 different fabrics and 9,072 pieces to complete! It was a WOW!
Laura Heine pattern. Sharon fell in love with the colors yet it took over a year to complete. It got a well-deserved Best Use of Color ribbon.
Moon Glow by Jinny Beyer. Kathie was drawn to these beautiful jewel-tone colors. It sparkled from across the floor!
Barbara Kiehn generously gifted this top to Marianne who owns a vineyard. Lin added the right touch of quilting and it does evoke a vineyard!
Donna’s own improv piecing and wonky pattern. Her quilting is quirky and delightful!
Pattern from a Quiltworx class. Margo added beautiful digitized quilting.
A Dear Jane quilt by Brenda Manges Papadakis with 225 paper-pieced patterns and 5,602 pieces. I sponsored Donna since she was not a guild member; this was her first time to show a quilt!
I happened to be shopping at Quilter’s Corner on the last day of the Dear Jane class. I was admiring Donna’s quilt and I learned she was not a member of a guild. I suggested that she show her quilt, this is a Lifetime Accomplishment! So glad she showed it.
Cozy Quilt Design made after watching a Jordan Fabric’s video. I love the bubble quilting.
From a Dora Cary’s Beads on a String workshop. Brenda taught herself the traveling flying geese quilting from a video. Fabulous quilting!
I hope you enjoyed our show. If you’re in the area, come see our show next year. As you can see, it’s a great show! I’m linking up to Nina-Marie’s Off the Wall Friday.
