I was looking for a project to do while everything I own is in storage. I saw this pattern and fell in love with it. The quilt is 48” by 60” and is going to be gifted to the people we stay with in Texas.

Last month I won a package of neutral and gold fabric. I tried to figure out how I could make it more colorful. The inspiration came from a picture on Pinterest. I used the disappearing nine patch design. The pillow is 20” square. My husband likes it so we’ll, he wants me to make another one for a matching set!

I discovered a bin of quilting kits in a cabinet. The fabric in this kit dates to 2006!! I used Robin Long’s tool instead of the pattern in the kit. I think the quilt has a peaceful quality and will go to Hopewell House for Hospice. I enjoy the inset circles and the points of the compass.

Naomi M generosity inspired this NICU quilt. Naomi gave me a bundle of fabric from the Silent Auction because she knew I was unable to attend the fun event. I saw a colorful NICU quilt in the bundle. I enjoy using Robin Long’s tool because of the easy, perfect points in the inset circle.

This is from a class that I took at Sisters pre-pandemic. I had decided that I was only going to use what was in my stash and to make my project a small one rather than take on a large quilt. I took my time, as usual, to complete it! I used red pearl cotton thread to big stitch quilt it and loved the way that it popped out.

During an MPS Zoom retreat which followed Jennifer Sampou’s presentation on Ombres, I decided to make a table runner inspired by one she showed during her presentation. With only a 12″ cut I could only make it so big, but it fits perfectly on an outside table in a conversation space on a new deck we put in this summer.
I used Jacquee Gering matchstick quilting technique.

I made this small wall quilt during Covid lockdown prior to the 2020 elections. It is an encouragement to know the issues and candidates and vote to support them.
Size is 20” wide by 24” long. Quilted on my domestic.Vote Quilt

Tea and Stitches Small Group Project

Jean Moore-Vollmer

My quilt was inspired by improvisational quilting that I had seen done by Jean Wells. Our small quilt group picked making a green quilt for our challenge quilts so I decided to try this technique.

This is my “green” challenge quilt for my 2022 small quilt group challenge. “The Tree” . Approx. 20″ x 21″. I wanted the texture of the leaves without being too literal. I used squares of batik green 1 1/2″ by 1 1/2″ and folded the squares before stitching them onto the tree.

Our small quilt group had a challenge to make something green. I have always wanted to try a French Braid. This table runner is 82”x12”. I had fun collecting all of the green fabrics from my stash and there are 20.

My small group challenged ourselves with ‘Green’ this year partially because it wasn’t a favorite color and most had little green in our stashes. I had always wanted to deconstruct a perfectly constructed block to recreate a new design. So nine green Ohio Star blocks were cut and resewn. One Ohio Star block remained intact and added to the back. The quilt has joined my patio quilts.
