Featured Member Quilts: February 4

Suzanne Gibson
We were very moved by this label done by Suzanne Gibson for a quilt she finished in 1998 from blocks done by her Grandmother in the early 1900’s. We love how she has used photographs, titled the work “Made by Grandma and Me” and used beautiful script. It’s a perfect way to make sure that all the heart-felt history that goes with it is not lost. Thank you, Suzanne, for sharing this with us.

Brenda
Isn’t this beautiful! We want to thank Brenda Patton for sharing it with our 24 Blocks Facebook community. Brenda, when asked by another member if it was neeedleturn, wrote “Yes, it is needleturn. 3 months work. Fun. Nice big pieces, easy. From Glorious Color. com.” It’s such a work of art and we appreciate, Brenda, that you gave the description and internet source.

Lois
This beautiful interpretation of the Dresden Plate has been very popular with our readers on Facebook. We want to thank Lois Ford for posting it. She made it from a class in her quilting guild. We love the use of the small plates at the block corners for pizzaz in a traditional design.

Shirley

The colors in this quilt go so perfectly with the room…or does the room go with the quilt? It’s dynamic. Quilter Shirley Lips writes “Loved piecing these scrappy squares at a quilting weekend with my daughter. We selectively chose the color palate from my scraps. What a fantastic bonding experience.” Thank you so much, Shirley, for sharing it with our community!

Ann
Pink and green just make us believe that spring is near. Ann Pearce made this wall hanging and writes “Here’s a Delectable Mountains wallhanging (approx. 45″ x 45″) I adapted from a quilt I inherited from my grandmother. I made it for my sister’s 50th birthday, which was on May 13. As I recreated the center flower, I discovered it had 13 points! Hand and machine pieced and hand quilted.” Thanks, Ann, for sharing it with our readers on Facebook.
