Maggie
Maggie Dillon is a fabric artist who uses “photographic references to create representational portraits of an occasion among friends, a glimpse of a relationship and natural daily life, or a celebration of family…” This quilted piece is so subtle in its use of shadow. You can see more of her work on her own Facebook page for maggiedillondesigns. We want to thank you, Maggie, for sharing this with our 24 Blocks Facebook community.

Amy
Amy Parker shared her recent creation, writing “that it is “based on “merry go round” from a book by Kim Schaefer. Finished right at the end of 2012. Now I just have to find the time to quilt it!!!” We think it is electric. Thanks, Amy, for your post!

Marcia
Wow! Marcia Kim shared with us her 44″ square Rotating Star. We love how it has energy and does seem to move. Isn’t the frame look on the edging nice, too? Thanks, Marcia, for sharing it with us.

Gayle Brown wrote: “The last two years , I challenged myself to make a different Christmas-themed block every day in December leading up to Christmas. This year, I made the challenge more difficult by using an on-point layout and only using fabrics in my stash for the blocks. Here is my Christmas 2012 quilt”. We love how this one is unique and uses more of a rosy color than the traditional deep red. Thanks, Gayle, for your post via MommyGQuilts& Such

Brenda
Our 24 Blocks community members have really enjoyed this vibrant applique by Brenda Patton. It is so commanding! Notice, too, the pieced block borders. Thanks, Brenda, for sharing it with us! The birds in flight, the stars, the flowers…modern energy from a traditional concept.
