Fall Focus by Meena S

I made “ Fall Focus” for the orange challenge. I used orange as the focal color for my design.

Fall Focus

I placed it on an orange background but the details got totally lost…so I put it on its complementary color.


Created for the “Orange October” off season challenge.

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 ...

finished the binding at a quilt group meeting and have been enjoying it most of the month.  Thanks for the "push" Kim!

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.

Time for Nancy To See Venice

My office mate is retiring after 27 years, and I’ve had trouble deciding what to make for her.  She and her husband plan to do lots of travelling and hanging out with the grandchildren.  I knit half a scarf in fun novelty yarn, but it ended up looking like a boa….

21127

Then last week I took a new project bag to work.  When Nancy saw it she said, “Oh, I’ve always wanted to go to Venice!”  

Thank you, Nancy, for making my choice so easy – and giving me the inspiration to combine 2 projects into one.  

This bag is quilted and pieced.  It measures 13” wide, 9” high, and 5” deep.  Whether it travels across the ocean or just to the park, my friend Nancy will have a little view of Venice wherever she goes…..

……and a pocket for her cell phone!

My name is Sue and I create in West Hartford, CT.

This pieces represents the birth of my daughter.  The time waiting to meet her was up.  It was also Valentine's day, which is where the hearts come from.  There was a snow storm too, so that's where the snow flakes come in.

It’s About Time

My project is called "it's about time." I bought this fabric as a bundle back in 2011, with the intention of making "something" for my mom.

20170319_095722

My mom passed away in 2014. She also loved her naps. So, it's about time I used this fabric, and it's about time for a nap. I'm planning on giving it to my Dad. I hope he likes it as much as she would have.

Time is Up Pot Holder

My name is Charlene Morris,  I live in Rex, GA.  Kristin McCoy, a friend, invited me to complete this challenge.  I have enjoyed in from beginning to the end.  She contacted me and said the theme was time.  I was cooking and the buzzer was screaming " time's up".  So I decided a casserole pot holder table runner would be perfect(I needed a new one anyway). It was a rainy day and week that I saw many rainbows and since I work at night and leave work as the sun comes up it inspired me.

_20170319_051001

My project is 10.5x34.  The Sunshine's are actually pockets to put hands in to remove hot items from oven.  The rainbow bargello is not of the norm but I thought it was creative.  My project has Insulbrite and cotton batting as batting and cotton thread for longevity. I quilt curves in bargello and the Sunshine's have rays..

From Beginning to the END

From Beginning to THE END....my work is a concept piece that starts with a blank slate (at the bottom) and grows with ideas, shapes, color, pieces and is eventually a finished piece , meeting the deadline and ON TIME.

IMG_0848 (2)

It is a wall hanging 15" by 42" and will hang in my office to remind me about going from a concept idea to a finished project while meeting the deadline.  This was really fun and actually was completed in 4 hours in one session - which I HAVE NEVER DONE!  The fabric is "MONET" art panels.

Cuckoo Quilt

For this week's Project Quilting I took inspiration from my Grandparents' cuckoo clock. This is a clock they got in Germany in 1987 in honor of their 40th wedding anniversary.

image3 (3)
I always loved seeing this clock at their house as I grew up. After my Grandmother passed last year I asked to have this clock. I worked with a clock maker to fix it and now have it refurbished and running for my kids to enjoy.
image2 (3)Since this is the inspiration, I wanted to take elements of it for my piece, not necessarily remake the clock. I looked to the clock for flower colors and chose to represent the clock aspect by using 12 flowers. Just like the clock, everything is mirror imaged.
With quilting I added the cuckoo bird, his door and a pinecone.

Winter’s Time is Up

So.....being out of town with no sewing machine and NO FABRIC I really did not expect to be able to do this last challenge.

image1 (13)

I had brought a wool appliqué kit with me for something to do, and maybe the off chance that it would fit the theme. And it does! The flower and butterfly represent that winter's time is up. We are ready for spring!
