Thank you to all who sent in pictures for me to share on the blog. I am hopeful that being able to see what fellow members are up to by coming here makes you feel a little less isolated.
The first to submit an entry to me was Mary Ellen Casey. The pattern is Feathered Star, so for now it's called Valentine Feathered Stars.
Nancy Schrader made two pieces!
I had planned on having mom and I dress in red and White and present together. We were at a tea party for my nieces shower. My sister is on the right, mom is the midget next to her. Lol her words not mine.
Enjoy my entry #1, "Ladies in Red".
Happy to finish #1, and sad at the same time because I was replaying our fun together in my head while I made it and still unsure when I would see them again.
Went to empty the trash can fill of snippets and decided to make a 2nd one. 4 layers; mesh, confetti, mesh and a seersucker backing. Ribbon used in the binding.
Again, I am sending a detail shot. Back lit so you can see the layers.
Introducing "He Loves Me". Enjoy.
Next up is Gloria Crittenden, who also made 2 pieces. She didn't provide names for her entries.
The following pictures are from the slide show created for the zoom meeting.
Elaine used various techniques on her "Falling leaves" piece, including seed stitch, netting and painted lutrador. The background was quilted before the leaves were placed.
Martha Lorshbaugh based her design on a pattern by Patchabilities. Instead of appliqué, Martha used techniques learned from Linda M Poole to color her design with colored pencils. It's called "Vintage Sparkle"
Cynda said, in addition to herself, there are 4 others who contacted her to say they had finished a challenge entry, but were unable to send pictures. So the exhibit at the library - as soon as the library allows us to do it- will feature more beautiful red and white quilts! I can't wait to see them all!
