Pandas and Balloons
by Lynne R. Seitz

I've admired panda quilts before, so I made this pattern for myself. I wanted to use flannel ears for a soft, tactile feel for a baby. The pandas and balloons are hand appliquéd and the faces are hand embroidered.

Lady With the Umbrella
by Glenda Burk

In January 2018, I joined an online group called "15 Blocks In 15 Weeks Mystery". All blocks were to be made from one jelly roll. My group chose to make two blocks each week, so we each ended up with 30 blocks to be made into a quilt. The jelly rolls I chose were the companion fabrics to the Monet center print. In the end there were too many blocks to work well with the center panel.


Umbrella Leftovers
by Glenda Burk

This quilt was made using the leftover blocks from a Jelly Roll Mystery Challenge. This was a challenge to make 15 blocks in 15 weeks using one jelly roll for all blocks. The other half of the blocks were used in "Lady With the Umbrella" quilt.


Strawberry Delight

A cozy and nostalgic look back at mom's retro kitchen. Pattern by Benertex.


Kaleidoscope 1
by Chris Matiukas

I attended the Ricky Tims seminar in 2017 and thought I should try at least one of the techniques before I forgot everything. Luckily, I had his Kool Kaleidoscope Quilts book. This was a surprisingly simple and fun technique.


Harvest Treats
by Kay Baehr
quilted by Katy Neher

I purchased this "No-Measure Bargello" kit in 2014, and finished it for the 2018 Bucket List Challenge. The pattern designer, Wendy Mathson, made this an easy to follow technique.

Batik Stars in a Northern Sky
by Kathi Strawn

I learned the elliptical star technique from a class at a Houston Quilt Show about 15 years ago and I never got proficient enough at longarm or machine quilting. So I decided this year to quilt it by hand. Then I complicated it by adding constellations, galaxies, nebulas, comets, planets, etc.


Oh, the Places You'll Go, Alexander Roen!
by Bonnie Bladow

Using the Dr. Seuss panel "Oh the Places You'll Go", I created this baby quilt for my niece's son, Alexander Roen. My niece decorated the nursery around this Dr. Seuss book. Machine pieced and quilted.


Fresh Cut

To showcase a friend's poem, hand embellished, machine-written/quilted.

After years of trying to make a dolphin quilt, my brother said "make it broader so it won't look like a rainbow trout". Voila! A 2-sided quilt.
