I love this quilt! Sara always comes up with such sweet applique quilts. The owls were SID, then I added "Wood Grain" in the limbs of the tree,
Janette's first quilt! Hurray! Well done, beautifully pieced, and you can't go wrong with blue in my book.
Quilted with the "Kay's Shamrock" panto, and a very appropriate choice for an Irish Chain quilt. Lovely.
|Carol came to me through our mutual friend Xande. The quilt is Carol's design. and is made up of lots and lots of little triangles. Carol further told me that it was Xande's idea to cut the hexagons and add the gold bars because the quilt was "so brown" without them. I love how it turned out, and I really love the gold thread on the black background. Way cool!|
I think that I found Feather Your Nest, when we were on a bike ride. As I recall, it was a century ride, so no time to stop and shop, but we of course returned!
This quilt will be auctioned off on the Facebook page of Feather Your Nest as a fund raiser for a young woman who competes in rodeos. Best of luck to her and be sure and visit the shop in downtown Gresham, and on FB.
The picture on the right above is a much better representation of the colors than on the right, but that's how it turned out. Sorry Leigh.
Leigh called this one "Roosters", but I have decided that the name of the quilt is "Cluckers". Feathers behind the birds to represent tail feathers. Too fun!
Here is the second of two quilts that Lisa helped to work on. The kids were asked to write their hope for the future in the center of the stars, and also got to choose their fabrics from a selection that Lisa had. What a wonderful idea.
When we get to ride Cycle Oregon, we camp with a group called "Team Soaras", and our friend Ted is the "Chief Sherpa" for us. That means that he organizes
the Sherpas who set up camp or us, and make the coffee in the morning, and provide the adult beverage of your choice at the end of the ride. Team Soaras is the only way to do Cycle Oregon. As a small thank you to Ted for his hard work, I made him this quilt.
Ted teaches firefighting at Chemeketa Community College, and so when I found this firefighter fabric in Waldport, I knew that I had to have it for Ted's quilt. I had decided by that time that the quilt would be red, black and white, and I was pretty sure that this was the correct pattern. It's paper pieced, something I don't usually do, but I'm glad I took a chance and really worked at that technique. Quilted with freehand f'lames, to keep the firefighter theme going.
