A selection of just a few of the quilts using patterns based on triangles of many different shapes and sizes.

Title: Starburst

Artist: Julie Schulz
Quilted By: Barb Peterson, Heatland Stitches
Pattern Source: Starburst by Pieces from my Heart

“I bought this fabric 20 years ago with a friend that said “I’ll buy it if you don’t!” Recently I have been going through my old fabrics, and I still love the inspiration floral fabric. Most of the coordinating fabric I had put together years ago and it still looks awesome. This fabric and this pattern really made me feel like this was a vintage looking quilt. And I may have to hide it from my friend….”
Title: Goose Chase

Artist: Julie Schulz
Quilted By: Barb Simons, Stone Ridge Quilting
Pattern Source: Thimbleberries, Classic Quilts

“I put together these fabrics, and even picked the pattern, over 10 years ago. It sat on the shelf that long. I have been trying to alternate between old and new projects to use some of the beautiful old fabrics I bought. The back on this quilt is brushed denim, which makes if feel more substantial and cozy! The original pattern had appliqué borders but I thought it looked too busy. The fall colors and pattern make it perfect for the men in your life.”
Title: New York Beauty: Black and White, Red all Over

Artist: Lynette Winters
Quilted By: Self
Pattern Source: Claudia Myers Designs

“These New York Beauty blocks are paper pieces and combined with half square triangles. I have always loved the New York Beauty pattern and finally got the courage to make one.”
Title: Morning Star

Artist: Jean Anderson
Quilted By: Self
Pattern Source: Beyond the Reef

“I have done other Beyond the Reef patterns and always liked how they turned out. All the fabric was from my stash with the circle backing fabric the inspiration for the colors. I wanted to do the straight line quilting so did a grid pattern.”
Title: Mom’s Flower Quilt

Artist: Debbie Richman
Quilted By: Clem Busik
Pattern Source: Traditional

“I was shopping at Mary’s Quilt Market and saw these pre-cut 10” squares and thought my Mom would like them. She didn’t! I sewed them into this simple quilt and then she loved them, so much that she wanted her quilt in the show so everyone could see it. Clem quilted a little heart with “Mom” in it in the border.”
