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

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.

This quilt was made as a wedding gift for friends. It was made from a pattern I found on Quiltville.com and is made from blue and yellow scraps (scrappy is very much my favorite kind of quilt) I love the deeper shades and its warm and cozy feeling.

Cannot Tell a Lie Cannot Tell a Lie

Maine, USA
Blog: The Crafty Unicorn Quilting

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

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.

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!

This is a Turning Twenty Quilt. I cannot remember the designers name. I collected red and white fabrics and this is what I came up with. This is my 2nd Quilt that I had finished. I quilted it myself..and it is very heavily machine quilted in an art form why. I have not used a stencil on it.

This quilt was presented as a mystery quilt from a local quilt shop. I loved the final look and was so glad that I decided to pull a lot of teals and purples to make this one a scrap quilt. My daughter is trying to “steal” this one from my possession, but she can’t as I use it in lectures.

I designed this conventionally sewn, (not foundation pieced) quilt to take advantage of my 49 Pineapple blocks.

I figured out how to rotary cut 64 trapezoids and triangles, enough for 2 blocks, in only 14 strokes without measuring or wasting any fabric. Kaufman Kona Cream and Tomato fabric.

Yellow and Blue Monster Yellow and Blue Monster
By: Velvor Jones,

It started as a block of the month from Along Came Quilting in Calgary, Alberta, about three years ago. I managed to keep up with the blocks every month but it languished for two years before it was completed this week. I am proud of the finished product, worth all the effort.
