Black and White Quilt Black and White Quilt
By: Holly Elam, Alabama, USA

I made this pattern on EQ5 for my husband’s boss. She got married in October of 2009. She had a 1930s themed wedding. The colors were black white and silver. She asked all of her guests to dress up in 1930s attire. It was fun.

Cannot Tell a Lie Cannot Tell a Lie
By: Leslie McSorley, Maine, USA

This quilt is inspired by an antique and I call it “Cannot Tell a Lie” because I made it over Washington’s Birthday weekend when I should have been working on something else! And since it is red and made in February- Of course I quilted hearts all over it.

Cranberry Bog Cranberry Bog
By: Sharon Vrooman, New York, USA

The vintage cranberry floral and tan make a dramatic look to a very simple, single block. A pantograph flower pattern was used to quilt it. I love the antique period look to this quilt making it a heritage piece to hand down.

Go Wolfpack! Go Wolfpack!
By: Jeanne McBrayer, North Carolina, USA

My blue-and-white quilt blocks are from a 90’s Internet swap. I finished the quilt after I got my Gammill in 2005. Because my hubby and I went to N.C. State, whose colors are red and white, I included the mascot in the window of the house. That’s the only way I could have a Carolina Blue quilt!
