We know you'll enjoy assembling Lotus Leaves Squared, a delightful quilt from Christine Barnes.

You can find Special Effects with Color in Christine's classroom here at TQS.  In this class she demystifies color and shows you how to choose and combine fabrics—“magic fabrics”—to create special effects like luminosity, transparency, luster, and opalescence. Get acquainted with the basics (they are the building blocks of color) and put the concepts into practice with ten easy color studies. See how “the color makes the quilt” in a number of same-design, different-colorway examples. 

Christine's website: http://www.christinebarnes.com

You can also learn more about Christine in Episode 1407: The "New" Traditional: A Marvelous Mix of Fabric, Style, and Stitches.

TQS Puzzle - 20 Petals - Karen Gloeggler

Posted in Puzzles  |   Submit a Comment

20 Petals was created by Karen Gloeggler for the Quilt Alliance TWENTY contest.  Here's what she had to say about the quilt, "20 petals, 20 fabrics, congratulations on 20 years! I’ve been designing quilts with “rays” lately and the Quilt Alliance game me a reason to finally make one. This is my original paper-pieced pattern, designed a month ago especially for the Quilt Alliance and machine-pieced and quilted by me. I chose a flower motif because like a flower, the Quilt Alliance is vibrant, beautiful and will last forever, just as a perennial! Congratulations times twenty."

You can watch Karen in Episode 1405: Drawing from the Past: Jane Austen-Inspired Quilts.

TQS Puzzle - The Road to Recovery - Mary Gasperik
March 02, 2014
Back to Top
Posted in Puzzles  |   Submit a Comment

The Road to Recovery is a masterwork by Mary Gasperik.  According to The Quilt Index, "Mary Gasperik's original design to commemorate the 1939 New York World's Fair was made for a quilt contest "Better Living in the World of Tomorrow." She did not win a prize, but it is considered one of her masterpiece quilts. Although she did not sign this quilt, she often said the seated woman appliquéd in the center of the quilt represents herself. The pattern source for two of the appliqué elements in this quilt, the pair of robins in the lower left and the brown wren at the right side of the tree on the right, have been identified. Gasperik traced them from illustrations by Fern Bisel Peat published in popular books about birds printed in the early 1930s. In copying the robins from a book, Gasperik not only traced the book illustration's outlines to create her appliqué pattern, but she also duplicated Peat's detail through elaborate embroidery. "
