Exciting bits!!

Since starting this blog I have shared two of my quilt finishes. Both of these special quilts had their beginnings in a Victoria Findlay Wolfe Class at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilting and Fiber Arts. The first class 15 Minutes of Play, was the start of this block:wpid-a-star.gif.gif


This block led to 8 more blocks! Because I just Couldn’t get enough of the “Y” seams! LOL! I put in 4 pre printed panels that needed to find a home. I had never set a quilt on the diagonal before. It required a bit of filling, and so I made that up as I went along.




Then there was the border. Another opportunity to use up scraps! In the end, this is how the quilt finished.


This last January I took a Double wedding Ring class from Victoria . wpid-20150217_082247.jpgwpid-2015-02-16-07.21.57.png.png

wpid-20150215_220159.jpgTwo days of learning to master sewing curves and working out my design. I was marrying some 1980’s fabrics with current fabric selections. A quilt started by Mom as well as a quilt started by me in the 80’s . Good memories of us sewing together. Mom’s favorites: Cardinals, angels, knitting, She was a woman of faith. All of these things were incorporated into this quilt called “For Rose”.  My Mom, named Millie, was named “Rose” by my daughter Sarah when she was about 2 years old. It stuck. This quilt is quilted throughout with a Rose design.wpid-dwr-for-rose-quilt.jpg.jpeg

The exciting news is that both of the quilts were entered into the Wisconsin Biennale Exhibit at the Wisconsin Quilt Museum and will be a part of an exhibit for Wisconsin artists from July 16 through the early part of October.

What an exciting opportunity this is for me and it makes me think that I am very ready to start another quilt!
