May I Rejoice? by Debora B

May I Rejoice?

Finished Size: 14" x 23"

Created by Debora Brown

Fort Worth, TX

Finished Front - DBrown

Inspired by a sculpture in the ZimSculpt exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum, I created May I Rejoice?


After a particularly difficult season of life, I continue to remind myself to be joyful, to rejoice, and to find peace as I walk through life. 

It took me several days of thinking about May I? to settle on a concept for the quilt. The concept changed from an abstract cubist design to the applique design. Part of the reason for the change was the fabric choices. The fabric is from my mother's collection. Once I found the fabrics, the background piece was a perfect size to hold an applique of the girl. 

Detail 1 - DBrown

I decided on needle turn applique for a more polished look. The lace detail, buttons, and embroidery thread shoe ribbons added a more realistic look to the figure.

 Detail 2 - DBrown

The three-layer piece is hand quilted.  

Finished Back - DBrown

“You are my Sunsine”–Scrap Quilt Challenge Entry

Kim Van Etten Quilting in Poynette WI entry for the Scrap Quilt Challenge

The pattern is “You are my Sunshine”

45x60

2017 You are my Sunshine

This quilt is made out of my blue, gray, and cream fabrics.  I pulled them and cut them into the 10” squares required.  If I didn’t have a big enough piece of fabric I pieced it and then cut the 10” square.  To my surprise I even had a binding made that fit it the drawer I throw my extra binding in!

“May I Contrast?” by Janell R

For this challenge, I wanted to try a quilt with really strong contrasts. 

image3A strong, bright blue against black and white.  To help this, I used black and white thread, alternating lines in the quilting. 

image2

It gives the illusion of broken lines.  I used a silver metallic thread for the quilting on the blue fabric.  For added dimension, I made some borders with texture. 

image1

The black borders are tucks, but I used white thread to sew them so they look like pinstripes.  The white borders are wave tucks.  And it's all nicely framed with the blue binding.
