Canyon Dance Canyon Dance
By: Julie Huffman, Idaho, USA

Two years ago my friend Deb fell in love with a quilt I made for another friend. Deb was ill with emphysema so I surprised her with her own version of the quilt in 2009. It was just right for laying in her recliner. Deb passed away Feb. 10, 2010 and I received the quilt back from her sisters.

This is a Red Rooster pattern and completed entirely with stash on hand-even the back is pieced. It will be a x-mas gift for a dear friend who is my “country cousin”. It is hand quilted and I tied the outer checked border to symbolize our “tied” friendship

Liz's Friendship Braid Liz’s Friendship Braid
By: Scranda, United Kingdom

Liz was a good friend of mine when we were teaching together, and a great support to me when I was Acting Head. She’s finally decided that it’s time to retire and I wanted to mark the occasion with a quilt, and Friendship Braid seemed the perfect choice.

Quilt of Love and Hope Quilt of Love and Hope
By: Erilyn, New Zealand

My friend Marjorie was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2008. This quilt I made for her as a comfort – the greens in the center for calming, flowers for cheering and quilted with feathered hearts (surrounded and made with love) and angels (to keep watch). Thankfully, Marjorie is still with me today.

    The article states there were 8 entries but only 6 pictures are visible. Is it my browser or is there somewhere else to go to see the other two entries? The ones that are visible are beautiful but it makes it difficult to vote if you can’t see all the entries.

    Ann, check if you have your font size increased in your browser. Go to View, Text Size, set it to medium.

    Hope this works,

    Michele, thanks for the info. This is a fairly new computer and I hadn’t realized the text size was set like this.LOL I see them all now and they are truely “all” beautiful and I voted.

  4. All the Quilts are “Awesome” it was very hard to choose!!!

  5. These quilts are all outstanding—however my personal favorite is the Friendship quilt—it must have taken months to do that. A labor of love, indeed.

    What a lost art.
