Zoom Show & Tell - February 16, 2021
I’ve attached an image of a quilt I finished last year. It’s a copy of
an older quilt that was done in blues. I’m an orange person so
changed it up a bit. It’s a large double. I hand pieced it and had
it professionally quilted by Karyn Dornemann.
This is called Sweetheart Table Runner, a design by Annette Ornelas (Southwind Designs in Fayetteville, NC). I made the runner in a class where she demonstrated how to create curves with straight line piecing. It was fun and not difficult at all. This was my first attempt at free motion quilting.

"Too Many Men" panel and extra fabrics purchased during a NY
road trip 8/2013, quilted and completed in 2015.
"Bear Paws, just because"
I had the charm packs and
Peggy Tummarello 1
A quilt for the recovery home along
with a pillow since I had an extra block.
A pillow since I had an extra block from the quilt.
"Tiara Star" quilt - using Barb Eikmeir fat quarters
" Tiara" purchased in November
I made this quilt from blocks received from Barb Vedder’s block exchange.
Gift bags for kids with photos of Grandm. A special gift with special memories
I had a set of small, royal blue plates that belonged to my late
As a gift, I wanted to give my two sons and my niece & nephew
each one of the plates.
And for a special keepsake bag, I first transferred two photos of each child with their Grandma &Grandpa onto muslin. I then sewed each double photo onto a simple,
gray felt drawstring bag I sewed with visible exterior seams.
I dont believe I ever showed this quilt at the guild.. finished a couple years ago, and made for a friend's grandbaby.. actually more a toddler quilt.
Pattern: pinwheels from
Missouri Star Tutorials.
inspired by picture on
This is a quilt I made called “Plum Quilt”
by Tilda using the Tilda Plum Garden
I machine pieced the plums and blocks,
hand appliquéd the stems and leaves
and machine quilted the entire quilt.
I started this folksy “Chicken Run-ner” table runner in 2002 or so. Here it is...finally completed in 2021. It’s wool felt, backed with a cotton fabric. Yea! Another UFO done!
Applefest block design by Louise Hutchison. Apple block tote bag
Several years ago, WVQG members made items using my apple
block to sell at our guild booth at an annual Applefest festival.
As a nice gift, Carolynn Bridge sewed one of the blocks she'd
made onto a blank canvas tote bag for me!
I made 4 Apple for our Apple Project
Mark Lipinski taught a class a few years ago called “Throw Me A Curve”. It was a mystery in
that you could put it together using any final design you liked. I used some extra blocks on the back. FYI.....
I still have many UFO’s waiting to be worked on.
