I purchased this “almost” completed kit from the auction. I added sashing and corner blocks. I decided that I would use one block for the Thanksgiving greeting outside my front door and the other three blocks formed a beautiful table runner. Thanks for the donation to the auction.

My nephew visited in October and talked about the three dogs he and his wife enjoyed. I decided to use some dog fabric to make a Christmas/ Winter quilt titled ‘Winter Nap’ for he and his wife. I worked on the blocks during our Fall Zoom Retreat. Much of the fabric is from my Thimbleberry stash.

I worked on the blocks during our Zoom Retreat. I designed the blocks to show off the pear print. Fun, simple design to piece and quilt.

I enjoyed embroidering the red work while watching TV. Hanging on my wall to add a little Christmas spirit.

Lisa Poehlitz

I love the movement of this pattern. Looks more complicated than is. Pieced from only 4 shapes. There are 13 different blocks and keeping the pieces organized is biggest challenge. Quilted with Jessie’s Swirls pantograph on older Gammill Classic plus (wonderful workhorse machine).

I have seen so many of the quilters from our guild make the larger Dresden neighborhood that I decided I wanted to make one. I am into smaller quilts so I went to the mini design rather than the large one. I just use bright scraps from my stash and made it more whimsical than some of the more formal quilts I’ve seen. It was a lot of fun to make!

I had made this piece as a practice piece. It was hanging around my crafts room and my daughter saw it. I told her it was a practice piece, and she said, “you should make it into a pillow or something.” I made it into a pillow and gave it to her for her birthday.Naomi Pillow

My building needed a Christmas quilt so I decided to quickly make a one block wonder from a design I had seen. I soon realized that I wouldn’t have nearly as many as I anticipated and wouldn’t be able to finish the background. Ok…green background. Ran out…ok, a different shade since I couldn’t find the original. Looked funny…added red stripe…ran out. Last chance…added green stripe. Next time, buy more fabric.

When learning how to make Wonky Stars for our former Chairperson, I noticed the quilt behind Jenny Doan in the video tutorial and wondered what the stars would look like when set on-point. So I made 13 more stars and created a quilt using an on-point setting. My “QRT” (see resource list) came in very handy in figuring out the setting and corner triangles. I like the way the stars “twinkle” differently when on point.

Both of these quilts will be donated to my church quilting group. The tree quilt was made using a Tri-recs ruler. The other quilt was made primarily of leftover 2.5” squares. I quilted both with simple straight line quilting with a walking foot.

This was the 4th consecutive of 5 quilt tops donated to the guild that I picked up from a pre-auction work day. Again the preciseness of the piecing was perfection. It was quite a challenge to find an additional fabric for the last border. I auditioned several before ending up with the butterfly fabric. I quilted it with an edge to edge butterfly pattern on my embroidery module.

A huggy warm throw for my son and family at Christmas!

Linda Toner

Quilt of Valor top from our auction. It needed borders to be the right size.
2nd beautiful top destined for Quilt of Valor from MPS auction. I added borders and it is now being quilted.
