All very beautiful, so much talent.

They are all beyond belief in their beauty and workmanship, but my favorite is “My Sweet House”.The details are amazing! How long did this take her to make?

As a “north-easterner” voting on a cold December day, I find “On This Winter Day” drawing me right in; yet it was entered in Daytona FL! Was someone remembering days of their past or just wishing to experience a white winter? The detail is lovely. Like a good jigsaw puzzle, so much to see. Having actually seen “Sleep, Pray, Scream”, I must say to those of you who did not, it is amazing. Each slat is a three dimensional bar which changes what you see by the angle that you see it from.

For years AQS has been lecturing on acknowledging quilt pattern designer or inspired by who or whatever. My question is why is there no acknowledgement for ‘Why Not’ being influenced by the pattern by Cindi Edgerton ‘Diamond Log Cabin’? This pattern immediately came to mind from the first picture seen of this quilt. Does this mean no longer have to put references on my quilts or entry forms for local quilt shows?

Judy, You should always reference the pattern, pattern designer, or other source of inspiration. I’ll pass this along to our contest coordinator so she can look into it. Thank you. ~ Sylvia Thomas, AQS Social Media Manager

Cindi Edgerton’s Diamond Log Cabin pattern was listed as a design source for this quilt. In addition to the book Easy Machine Paper Piecing by Carol Doak. These sources were listed on the entry paperwork and have appeared in every show book giving credit as design sources. Why they do not appear here, I don’t know, but I, as the maker of said quilt, have always given credit where it is due.

Stick with Me Kid. I saw this quilt in Grand Rapids and fell in love with it. Congratulations Jan!

They are all very beautiful but my favorite – On this winter day!


WOW – ‘On this winter day’ is just beautiful!

Sandra Laws

As a fairly new quilter (three years under my belt or sewing machine), I am amazed that these quilts are made with fabric, thread, and a sewing machine! I have attempted to make an art quilt and failed miserably, but I will keep on trying. These quilts inspire me. Thank you for sharing them with us.

Harvest time, such a splash of colour, thay are all incredile, such talent
