Marie Webster 1909 pattern

Bobi Harris, quilter

Marie Webster entered her quilt to the Ladies Home Journal in 1909. It was such a hit, she became famous for her applique designs and she is now in the Quilter's Hall of Fame, which is headquartered in her old house in Maryland.
The maze

#346 Image from internet and blocks from Celtic Quilts Designs by Philomena Wiechec

My grandson sent me a picture of a maze from the internet and said he loved it. I found out later he sent it as a joke; he thought I would say "NO WAY". It was a job but I got it done. I added Celtic symbols in the border and designed 2 of the blocks based on his tattoo. I'll be giving this to my grandson for his college graduation.

Judy Meimer, quilter

A paper piecing quilt engineered by Judy and Brad Neimeyer. This was a quilt class by Diane Simkiers with a very intense piecing. Thought has to be present for the designation of colors highlighted in this pattern. Overwhelmed by the quilting done by Cheryl Liedle.

Glynnis Scott, quilter

A block of the month quilt with the background and gray/block dots available to buy. The rest of the colors was our choice. It was interesting to see everyone's choices for their colors.

The background green was a gift and when I saw this pattern, I thought it would be a good opportunity to use up some scraps. It will be a quilt for comfort.

My younger sister suggested that she, her granddaughter, and I take a quilting class. This block of the month quilt was offered, so we thought we would try it. After the class/demo each month, the three of us went to my sister's house and made our blocks. It was a special bonding and social time for us. I have made other quilts but this was my first pieced quilt.

bargello quilt 530

#530 Bagello Quilts book by Marge Edie

Jill Larson

I love bargello and since I have away my first one, I've always wanted to make another. When I bought this book by M. Edie I was intrigued. Here patterns were a step beyond traditional bargello. Of course, the one I wanted to make was not one of the patterns in the book, so this is my variation
