Hazard of Cooking on the Hot Pavement by Vicky L

Title: Hazard of Cooking on the Hot Pavement
Created for the “Summer Sizzle” Project QUILTING Challenge

Size : 23.5" x 18.5"

Techniques : fusible applique and fabric paint

As you experienced a little of the heat in Kansas, there is always the joke that "it's so hot, you could fry an egg on the sidewalk".

Hazard of cooking

So here is one of the hazards of frying eggs on the pavement.  My husband helped me paint the tire to put the print on the quilt.

Fourth of July by Claudia M

Fourth of July
When I saw the off season challenge for Summer Sizzle, I told myself no, just too busy!  After a couple days, I reconsidered.  I have wanted to make a summer piece for my hanger and decided Summer Sizzle says Fourth of July to me so I dug through my stash, made half square triangles ...

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!
