“Celebrating Spring” proved to be the cure for my winter doldrums. I used two cherry blossom fabrics from “Orchard” by Jill Finley of Jillily Studios and added two grassy greens. I downsized the block from 15” to 12” and made my quilt larger. Karlee Sandell quilted Celebrating Spring with an edge-to-edge design called “Embellish.” I finished the quilt with a bias striped binding and my signature round label. Celebrating Spring measures 61½” x 72½”.

“Where’s My Banana?” I found the equilateral triangles in an auction item from last year. I paired it with the monkey fabric for a cute baby quilt. Thanks to whomever donated the cut triangles.

“For Comfort” I purchased 5 yards of the pink batik at last year’s auction and decided to use it for our small group (Tea and Stitches) challenge this year. We all made blocks using the pink and will donate the quilt to Hopewell House.

I won a bundle of fabric from sharing in the May Inspiration meeting. I used four of the five fabrics to make a zippered pouch.

“Square Knot” A new quilt for my sister to replace the other quilt from me that got worn out.

Linda Howarth

“Cozy Coat” Always wanted to make a quilted coat, finally found a pattern with great instructions. Made it fairly quickly and now wear it as a cardigan around the house. Cozy Indeed! Next to make another lighter version for my summer stroll through my garden.

“Discover Your Path” For 20 years our church has gifted our High School graduates with a quilt for them to take into the next phase of their life. Since 2009, I have taken some of the left over fabric and put together a quilt that stays at the church. I chose the compass block as they have lived through a lot that was out of their control and persevered. Most are still unsure of their path.

“Field Flowers” Having too much green in my stash, I started making strips which became blades of grass. Using Jennifer Sampou’s Dawn ombre, I found flower colors from my stash. Lastly, I decided to use four ombrés from JS to making the morning sky.

“Wiggles” I have challenged myself to make something from fabric I have won at MPS. This piece includes fabric won at May Inspirations. It is all free-form cutting on curves. I just pulled out all of my green a pink fabric from my stash and started cutting and sewing!

“Santa Loves Toys” Mom, pieced and appliqued the top. Laurie hand-quilted it and I finished it in 2024. This is the 16th quilt of my mom’s I have finished since she passed in 2009.

“Four Fir Trees” Mom pieced the blocks for this sampler. It was quilted by Nancy Stovall of Just Quilting. I assembled the top, pieced the back and added a faux flange binding. This is the 17th quilt of my mom’s that I have finished for her.

Liz McElhinny

“Malia’s Elephants” Baby quilt made for a niece’s first baby. She traveled to Thailand and fell in love with the elephants. Used Wendy Sheppard’s “Stomp” pattern to create the large elephants which used stitch and flip method. I drafted the small elephant to be paper pieced.
The label is embroidered on my Bernina. I used Terial Magic to stiffen and stabilize before the embroidery. It worked well and washed out beautifully!

Cydney Gordon

“Laural’s Baby Quilt” This was a very easy and fun pattern. I needed a quick Modern baby quilt and this came together in 4 hours after I gathered the fabric. It was very easy to quilt too.
