Another quilt from the Special Exhibit My Joyful Journey, part of the Virtual Quilt Festival, December 3-5, 2020.
Q UILT #16: A-Round With My Friends, 67" x 67", machine pieced, hand appliqued., hand quilted, 2011
The Story: Begun as a round robin with two friends in 2004 , I made the Feathered Star center. When I got it back I knew it deserved to be bigger so I created the applique border--an adaptation of a Nancy Pearson border design. I worked on this quilt for 7 years and was very pleased to have it receive Best of Show at its first quilt show.
It was also juried into AQS Paducah, 2012 and included in the book 500 Traditional Quilts, published in 2014. It was also included in the Special Exhibit in Houston, 2014, featuring some of the quilts from that book. I put my best hand quilting into this work on all original quilting designs. Collaboration with Ellen Anson and Sharon Suever.
