Abstraction By: Connie, Oregon, USA
This is a Paul Klee inspired original piece. I appliqued the pieces of fabric in a base layer of black fabric. It is my first totally appliqued piece.

Bold over by stained glass By: Robyn McPherson, Australia
The purchase of a Creative Iron stencil and a grab bag of Bold Over Batiks lead to the centre panel. Each of the small sections was fussy cut from the batiks. The setting was planned to look like bricks and the remnants of the batiks were used in the outer border.

Cathedral By: Jeri Beitel, New Mexico, USA
I visited Durham Cathedral in Northern England several years ago. I had always wanted to go there because it is an example of the first Gothic Cathedral. This piece is a combination of fragments of different windows there, with some interpretation by me.
I made this angel quilt before the easier bias tape method was introduced. Doing all that machine sewing was an amazing experience, however I enjoyed every stitch. I have a twin pattern to make and hope to complete it soon, but may decide to use the alternate method next quilt.

Forever Calla Lily By: Ruth O, Ontario, Canada
Don’t you just love Calla Lilies? They are so simple and beautiful, and yet stunning. A friend had made a similar wallhanging and I just had to make my own version. It’s one of my favorite quilts.

Garden in Paradise By: Norma, Alabama, USA
This is a doll quilt I made last month for a swap partner. It features trapunto and heavy free motion quilting. The coloring was done using a tinting technique (you can find the tutorial on my blog)

Go In Peace By: LizA., Washington, USA
This was made as a banner to hang on the balcony of our church. You see it and walk out underneath it as you exit the sanctuary.

In Awe and Wonder By: Lindy, Washington, USA
A summery quilt pattern in an Elenore Burns book made me think, “Stained Glass!”. I used batiks on black satin. I pieced every inch of this wall hanging, and did my best work, as I wanted to display it in our church. (But, if I ever do it again, I will ‘cheat’ and heat and bond the sucker!)

kronkels By: Katrien Pattyn, Belgium
I found a drawing and for me it was a good one for making my first stained glass. It is maked in batiks

Lancaster Rose Bud By: Kathi, Pennsylvania, USA
Designed by Carol Blevins, the technique uses iron on 1/4″ bias tape to hold the pieces together, then stitched down with a twin needle. Soft and flexible, not stiff. This is the quilt our FB friends looked for when meeting up for the first time in AQS Lancaster 2010. It hangs in my studio.

Silent Night By: Leah, Australia
Designed by Runaway Quilts, who seem to be out of business now, this stained glass quilt is a step away from the usual Christmas quilt. I bought the kit in 2002, and finally sewed it in time for Christmas 2008.
