2019 Quilts

New flash: I like making quilts! Here are the ones I made in 2019. You can also review the quilts I made in 2018, 2017 and 2016.

Three tiny floral embroideries.

Tree Lines, 30x80 This is quilt is currently part of SAQA's Connecting Our Natural Worlds exhibition. Process and inspiration pictures here.

Pondering, 5x7ish -- My donation to the Spotlight Auction at the SAQA Conference in San Jose.

Two 16x16 workshop samples for me new class Cups, Vases and Bowls. I'll be teaching this workshop at Craft Napa in January and at Quilters Affair in July in Sisters, OR. You can invite me to teach it at your guild too.

Day Break, 40x40

Spring Forth, 12x12 -- My donation for the 2019 SAQA Auction.

Grass Made It Possible, 50x30 -- You can read about the creative process and unexpectedly wonderful connection I discovered while making this quilt in this blog post.

Uprising 50x27 -- This quilt will be part of SAQA's Aloft exhibition through 2022.

Beach Exploration 15x75. I didn't blog about this piece, but you can read a bit more and see more photos in this Facebook post.

Vessels: Heartland 26x16x2 -- Lots of pictures about the process of creating this piece here.

Dusk Breeze 40x40 -- This piece was "finished" much earlier in the year but there were some things that I didn't like about it. Eventually, I went back and re-worked some areas.

Through and Through, 60x40 -- Peeks of this piece have shown up in my social media over the past few months, but I haven't shared the finished piece until now. Look for more details soon.

Right at the end of the year, I got busy preparing for Craft Napa and finished these 7x5 collage for the Vendor Fair night. (Unless you'd like to buy one now, that'd be super. $65 Email me.)They are all mounted on 8x10 mat board ready to frame.

That's 24 quilts not including the tiny embroideries. I consider seven of these major works -- which seems like a lot. I'm eager to make more in 2020.
