Show and Share – April 2023

Gail L. – Sampler Quilt

Back and front of sampler quilt – started with my summer sewing group- checkerboard blocks combined with sampler blocks. Flyer Geese Border inspired by a zoom lecture by Sherri Hisey last October.   Pieced back includes some leftover/ extra blocks.

Map Quilt

Small practice map created in Valerie Goodman workshop March 28th.
     Valerie encouraged the participants to concentrate on a small area of our chosen map. She also set up a page on a website called  “padlet” where we could all post our maps for sharing and comments. My map includes many of the techniques that she demonstrated: tracing onto a fabric base, creating the background using the sew and flip method, tracing and painting the roads, showing gradations of water, marking buildings, and writing a haiku( poem) to go with the map.
     She called my map my practice map- and says I’m ready to go ahead with this project.

This pladish quilt top (65” x 65”) in blacks, browns and white was made following Jane Cramer’s demo at a fall Virtual Tuesday meeting.  It’s a study in value so I used up lots of scraps – no 2 blocks are the same and for the most part there are no repeated fabrics with a block.  I really like the end result and it went together quickly because the squares are 4 or 5 inches.

Peaceful Night Quilt Guild Donation

I made this quilt to donate to Pieceful Night Quilter’s Guild.  From my Mom’s stash, I had some large pieces but no yardage of a burgundy batik with splashes of green and blue in it and I found enough coordinating lighter batik FQs in my own stash to frame 5” burgundy squares. I alternated these with the blocks made in the reverse and  then used the leftover fabric to elongate the quilt by making piano key borders for both ends.  My objective was to use up stash and it was very successful with next to nothing left of any of the fabrics in this quilt.

Denim table runner, started in theSandra Johnson Zoom class with the guild in the spring of 2021 (finally finished). I made it reversible, with a chambray-like fabric on the back.

Scrappy “Leaders and Enders” quilt, from a Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville tutorial. The 4-patches are made from 2″ squares and the
HST finish at 3″. It will go to Community Quilts.

A little doll quilt that I made for my granddaughter, from Disney “Frozen” fabric purchased from CQ. I also made a fitted sheet, pillow and pillowcase to coordinate, as in the 5th
photo (just finished those today), on the doll bed.
