1. Barb Murdock displayed a pink, white, and yellow Carpenters Star quilt that she made for a granddaughter in Alaska. The color choices looked like a breath of spring.
Barb also made a quilt for her grandson in Alaska for his birthday one year ago. This quilt was her own design and showed off browns and creams in split rectangles and squares.
Erin Davenport made Neapolitan Dream in pinks, browns, and creams (from her mother-in-laws stash). This pattern had blocks of different sized squares set one inside another.
Judy Fitzgerald made Flowers in My Garden. This showcased a red background with vibrant appliquéd flowers. Each block was a different grouping of flowers, and gave us hope that summer will eventually come!
Debbie Parker composed a quilt made from blocks contributed by friends of the Nielsen Family who lost two sons in one year. The quilt will be presented to the family as a memoriam that will be treasured.
1 Karlene Riggs used pinks, yellows, and other fun colors to make Pink Lemonade. She used a pattern by Piece O’ Cake Designs that was in the March/April 2011 For the Love of Quilting magazine. The design was machine appliquéd.
