November 2023

Linda Howarth

I watch a YouTube channel called Last Homely House. I can relate to the woman who does it as she creates quilts but also lots of other things. Her curtains inspired me to create my own. They add a bit of joy to my life.

Terese Scollard

Signed up for a class at a local shop because I thought it would make me finish this jacket–and it did. I used a sashiko preprinted wall hanging from my hallway that I’d done years ago, some lovely old Japanese prints from an estate sale, and an old men’s kimono for lining from a woman who had divorced the man. Quilted all main parts, and cut out the pattern. Lengthened arms/body. Wool batting. Knot bag.

Teresa Koster

I won a panel and some striped fabric from the drawing last inspirations. I knew exactly what I was going to try. I wasn’t real fond of the fabric but now that I’ve got it all put together, I’m not sure I want to give it away.

I had signed up for a whole cloth quilt along in November and I missed it. I finally got around to attempting it and when I went to buy the white fabric, my husband talked me into buying orange and blue.

Kim Toffel

My sister and her husband moved to Florida last year. After a long drawn out process, they are finally in a place that feels like home. The name of this design is “Gnome for the Holidays”, which seems just perfect!Kim's Gnome Quilt

I saw this project in the APQ quilting magazine and thought it looked fun. It’s also perfect since for some reason, Christmas always seems to sneak up on me every year!Kim's Countdown Quilt

Dianne McDonnell

This was the year of Reading Pillows for each of the grandkids on their birthday, Natalie turned 14 in November and using a dark plaid on gray seemed like a natural choice for a teenager. The pinwheels were made using Krista Moser’s Diamond ruler. The chevrons were made from the cutting scraps. She loved it and said the chevrons reminded her of her Converse shoes.

Kathy White

A PCP (Previous Century Project) that I am happy to finally call done. Only one of fabrics appears in both the stars and the groups of 4 half-square triangles. Should I choose to do this quilt again with one of the “What if” ideas in my head, I’ll certainly change the size of those stars for the points are created with squares cut 1 1/4″.

Rosalie Movius

I fell in love with this fabric. Very different color way for me. But I couldn’t cut it up and do a traditional quilt with it. I used the fusible applique technique from one of our guild meetings and then some landscape tips. The bird was the last addition. I used facings rather than binding to finish the quilt.

Cydney Gordon

Heather and I each worked on this same pattern but made our own quilts. It is amazing how differently the same pattern turns out in each makers imagination and hands. Each quilt will be presented to our grand children for Christmas.

Heather Pool

This a gift for my oldest son, his wife, and the 3 grandkids. The applique border is a memory of my Grandma’s tree lights, the BIG old fashioned kind.

This is a raffle quilt to support the Portland Christmas Revels show for 2023.

Christie Frey

Love making flying geese with my new tool. Discovered they make great stars. Quilt is all from stash. Will donate to Hopewell Hospice House.
