Quilt Fest NJ Part 2

There was a special exhibit at the show by Pieced Together Quilters of Bridgewater, NJ, who challenged members to make their version of Aunt Lucy's Medallion Quilt designed by Lori Smith. 

Carolyn Russo made her I Love Lucy quilt to learn new methods of piecing half square triangle units. 

Betsy Schneekloth used reproduction fabrics for her I Love Lucy quilt which is destined to hang in her husband's office.

Aunt Lucy's Jewel Box by Carol Dreitlein was a "great learning experience of different tools and techniques; mostly patience and perseverance." Turquoise and amethyst are her favorite colors.

Aunt Lucy Goes Green by Nancy Jane Hollasch who wanted the quilt to hang in her loft and chose the colors to go with her furniture.

Lucy Meets Mary by Susan McDermott quilted by Olga Buturova. Susan says she "did not follow the pattern very well. I named the quilt after a pioneer in women's education."

Go where no one else will go.
Do what no one else will do.
