Rosalie Movius

“Black, White, and Red All Over” More Red, black and white from an auction purchase in 2022. The strips were started in a split rail design and I added the larger squares for a place to rest from all the business. I quilted it with simple diagonals, 1.5″ apart. I realized that I still had lots of fabric left over and so made another “quilt” for the backing.

“Two Frogs and The Frog That Got Away” This hangs on the back of my front door with the hummingbird under it. I finished this about 2014.Janice "Two Herons and The Frog That Got Away"

“Small Change” This quilt was a Connecting Threads kit. I like their kits because there is sufficient fabric and the instructions are easy to follow. It was partially finished (needed borders) and then for some reason I put it away and discovered a couple months ago and Robin Hill was available to quilt it.

Teresa Koster

“Coconut Chips” I wanted to make a little something for both the sales agent and my sweet realtor, who helped us in the purchase of buying our property and having our home built here in Florida.

“Hummingbird Kaleidoscope” I finally got my sewing room back up and going after a year of not doing anything. I purchased two kaleidoscope panels to practice on. I got it put on my long arm and could not remember how to do anything. I had to reach out for help. But I love how it turned out.

Tea and Stitches Small Group

“Playtime” Our small sew group, made Sara H’s first grandchild a scrappy quilt using Brita Nelson’s Disappearing Blocks. New mother selected the colors and the group met to sew, cut and sew again. Jean V had the cute jungle border fabric to pull everything together. 1/4 inch border contained all the busy blocks. An Eric Carle panel was adapted for backing. Nancy W made the label. Linda G quilted it. Fun!

“Cornflowers” Purchased a kit (on sale) because I liked the cornflowers and fabrics. Changed the pattern to reduce width while increasing length. I didn’t add the prairie points because I wanted the quilt flat on the table. My quilting machine was in the shop for much deserved tune-up so used a decorative stitch on my newer machine. The quilt was a birthday gift to a neighbor.

“Party Time” I made these paper pieced blocks and completed the top and quilted it in 2020. I never bound it because I wasn’t happy with the quilting. It sat on a shelf until a few weeks ago when I decided to unstitch the quilting and quilt it again. I had used a monofilament thread to stitch in the ditch the first time. It seemed rough to the touch. I’m happy with the updated result.

“Fading Out” Inspired by a sample quilt seen at QuiltWorks, a former quilt store in Bend, Oregon. Third finish for 2023.

“Daemien’s Dream” Made as a graduation gift for Daemien from his grandmother (my sister Charlotte), his aunt Becky and myself. I had planned to make a smaller quilt but Charlotte asked for a gueen-size quilt so I pieced the light background and the special biking fabric to make the quit larger.

“Lucky Winnings” Following Nancy Watts’ tradition, I used my winnings from last month to make a table runner. This is my fifth quilted finish for the year along with 9 pillowcases.

Becky Swick

“Bees Knees” I made this quilt upon request of my daughter, a science/art teacher who cherishes bees.. I finished the top in the middle of a move, put it in a bag and forgot about it.
This spring I found the bag! In looking for a quilt back, choice in these colors was slim…so I worked through my stash and created an ‘around the world/court house steps’ back. So the quilt is reversible.

“Sunny Rays” This quilt was made to highlight a single line of fabric by Windham Anthology Batiks (i.e. Sparkle & Shine by Natalie Barnes. This fabric will be released in the Fall of 2023. My goal was to use as many of the fabrics as I could from the line. Visit the Resource List for the fun Look Book.

“Little Owl”  I swore I wasn’t going to buy any more quilt kits. Then I saw this one. Just too cute and the colors were perfect, so I bought it. But this is my last one – I swear…..Well, until the next one…..
