All of this fabric came from my stash except the backing. This was commissioned by my daughter for her roommate who is moving to Corvallis. 74″ x 84″. Title is Colorado Dreaming because she lived in Colorado for 8 years before moving back to Oregon.

This quilt was made on a piece of White grunge fabric with two layers of Hobbs 80/20 batting . It is 52”x52”. I made it for a very special lady I had never met.

After participating in Christie Frey’s Cathedral Window class, I wanted to make something other than a potholder. I knew I would be too chicken to get food in it so I made it bigger and it became a table runner.

Linda G and Claudia J

Claudia J donated 17 beautifully pieced blocks for NICU quilts. Linda G pieced the UFO blocks on point and quilted the 44 inch square NICU quilts. Quilts go to Providence Hospital’s NICU.

Birthday banner for a grandson who just learns to play Kings on the Corner and Solitaire. He won his first Solitaire game. The 12 inch square banner was made with a scrap of card fabric and it was a challenge to find four cards printed with 10.

This quilt is for my grandson who is graduating from high school and going to Penn State to study meteorology. I designed this as a variation of Maple Island BQ3. It is 86 x 60 and should fit his dorm bed. The black pieces are meant to look like rain.

It’s fun to combine traditional blocks to get interesting secondary designs. This quilt combines ‘snail trail’ and ‘storm at sea’ for ‘Snail in a Storm’. Used Missouri Stars fast snail trail pattern (Jan 17,2019) and a Halloween layer cake won at our silent auction. Everything about this quilt is out of the box for me: lime green, orange, Halloween! Saturday Sew and Retreat friends watched it come together. Great fun!!

TenTalk started during lockdown. This quilt is in an art exhibition, HOUSEHOLD, which grew out of the group’s relationships and a stack of Household, a women’s 1940s magazine. Lots of stress making the quilt for an exhibit. My son saw the exhibit and thought ‘mine was the best’. A proud moment!Naomi Ten Talk Quilt
