TItle: Spring Meadow
Artist: Emily Anderson
Quilted BY: Bonnie L. Anderson
Pattern: Daisies by Fig Tree & Co.
“I wanted to get into quilting and my mom went with me to shop. The flowers of the design drew me, it wasn’t too complex, and I wanted to hand applique the center petal. I had been doing hand embroidery for years and applique pieces always intrigued me. I chose fabrics which were bright and springy, as well as balanced. My mother-in-law agreed to machine quilt it. It is my first quilt and I am thrilled with how it turned out. “

Title: Vintage Delight

Artist: Carmen Nordback
Quilted By: Becky Leitch
Pattern: Traditional Block, Orignial Design Border

“Vintage Delight combines my love of traditional patterns, 30’s fabrics and applique. I combined the Shoofly and 54-40 or fight blocks and then decided the quilt needed a little something to frame it. I created and applique border that does just that.”

Title: A Soldier’s Quilt

Artist: Mary Rose
Entered by: Karla Rose Hanson
Quilted By: Clem Busik
Pattern: A Soldier’s Quilt by Toby Lischko

“My mom, Mary Rose, made this for my husband, Shawn Hanson, who is a history buff. It was designed to match dimensions required by the Civil War Sanitary Commission, which established narrow dimensions to limit infections in wounded soldiers covering on cots in battlefield tents in unsanitary conditions. Mary Rose machine pieced the top and Clem Buzick quilted it.”
