2015 Great Alaska Quilt Show

Large Quilts

100 Americana

By Katy Neher

I started to piece this ‘mystery’ quilt in 2001. I finished piecing it in February 2008 as I recovered from surgery. I took so long to piece it because I hated it. However once I had custom quilted it in April 2015 I decided I really liked it.

101 Black/White and Red Dot

By Jacky Strong

102 Words To Live By

108 Indonesian Batiks

109 Kurt’s 50 Stars of Gold

By Rena Brinker
Quilted by Julie Lucht

My Alaska Ferry captain brother, Kurt, loves Alaska and all its animals and fish. He lives in Ketchikan. The quilting on this quilt should be viewed from the back.

110 Coleus Old and New

By Rena Brinker
Quilted by Julie Lucht

I found the pieced center at a Seattle garage sale and decided to mix old and new with a fab-ulous coleus print containing brighter versions of the colors in the old blocks. The thin black and white border mimics the black running stitch around the old petals.



111 49 Alaska

By Katy Neher

This quilt was a kit of 49 different Alaska batik fabrics put together by Sew Bee Quilting in Seward. I made it for my grandniece to celebrate her marriage. The quilting design includes an ‘Alaska’ which I digitized.

Medium Quilts


200 You Dun’ Good

201 Fanfair

By Linda Postlethwait

This quilt was my third idea of how to use the fan blocks. The blocks are hand appliqued. The arrangement of the fan blocks made me think of a Ferris wheel, thus the name ‘Fanfair’.

202 Rural Block

By Linda Postlethwait

The pattern ‘All Around the Town’ was a block of the month by Susan H. Garman. I enjoyed selecting the fabrics and hand appliqueing the blocks. The quilt is machine quilted. Hand embroidery adds accent and a personal touch.

203 Geisha Sisters

By Linda Postlethwait

Liking the Geisha fabric, I purchased it about 8 years ago. I finally found another fabric that I liked as well and designed this quilt. To add dimension I made a fluted ribbon trim and used French knots to tack the quilt.
204 Modern Dresden

Dresden Plate is an old standard quilting pat-tern which is interpreted here in a modern set-ting. Last Wednesday Quilters gave me eight plates; I made the other eleven. Both machine and hand sewing were used.

By Glenda Burk

This panel reminded me of paintings that my daughter likes. She is an elementary teacher and likes bright colors.

222 Sweet Tea and Jelly Roll

By Kay Baehr
Quilted by Katy Neher

I purchased this ‘Sweet Tea Girls’ pattern at Creations in Kerrville, Texas. The neutral brown and black store sample was striking but not really my thing. I chose to use a multi-colored jelly roll that had a little help from my stash.

223 Fortune Teller

By Linda Postlethwait

This ‘He loves me/He loves me not’ quilt reminds me of the 1960’s when daisies were ‘in’. Annie Unrein’s ‘Loves Me!’ pattern was modified to make this quilt my own.

Love those African fabrics!

227 Color Time

By Kay Fiero

319 Batik Jigsaw

427 Sunspot

By Kate Beebe

The basic pattern was by Vicki Pignatelli who came to Alaska to teach. ‘Stitching on air’ was a new technique for me as was her technique for applique. Using free motion stitching to do the quilting helped me practice these skills and added a lot to the wall hanging.
