Lotto Squares by Sue Erdreich was "made from blocks that were raffled off as part of our monthly Block Lotto."
A Star is Born by Mindy Wexler Marks was part of the Empire State Quilters Urban Inspirations 2018 exhibit. Mindy used "modern prints for an old-fashioned block."
Nancy Simmons of Duncannon, PA won a blue ribbon in the Best Traditional Style Quilt category for her quilt Aunt Sadie's Stars. Her inspiration came from a quilt in the Grand Rapids Public Museum. She used Edyta Sitar's Texas Star pattern for the Lone Stars.
Happy Together was made by Laura Wagner (Natalie's daughter) and quilted by Krishma Patel. Both are members of Garden State Quilters. Laura made the quilt for her best friend's wedding. It portrays a "theme of abundance, prosperity and happy togetherness that a union of marriage signifies for a couple!"
Beautifully quilted by Krishma!
Over There was made by quilting friend Susan McDermott, Warren, NJ in honor of her father-in-law who served in World War I. The Red Cross blocks represent the "quilts that were made as fundraisers to support the medical needs of the servicemen." The back of the quilt has images of Frank McDermott's history during the war.
Wanderlust was made by Alisa Korunow and Marcia Zimmerman, Westfield, NJ who "took on this project as a celebration of their friendship." They taught themselves to hand applique and this was the first full size quilt they hand quilted.
Oak & Reel by Debra Harry, Hackettstown, NJ. The blocks each have a different red fabric and shade of cream to give it an "old look." Doesn't this remind you of Barb V's style??
Hope by Christy Gray "represents the 1.3 million animals euthanized in shelters every year in the U.S." This was a Color Challenge by ARTrageous Fiber Artists from Missouri. It involved a random drawing for a color from the traditional color wheel and had to include a circle or arc as a prominent feature in the design.
Hope you enjoyed the show--Rachel and I certainly did!
