Peppermint and Holly by Cherie Swanson, quilted by Nancy Stein

Cherie Swanson says, "Piecing and hand applique are my favorite combination of techniques. The holly gives hints of Christmas but this quilt will stay out all year." The Peppermint and Holly pattern is from Quilting the Garden by Barb Adams (Blackbird Designs, 2004). Cherie's beautiful applique work can be seen in the closeup photo, below.

A Quilted Wreath

December is here and we are enjoying the many holiday decorations that have appeared.  Here is a creative quilted wreath, embellished with a bright red fabric "ribbon"!

Birds and Berries by Kathryn Wild

A fat quarter of blue hydrangea fabric inspired this little quilt, an original design by Kathryn Wild.  The machine quilting on the wreath was inspired by RaNae Merrill, who gave a talk at the Tucson Quilters Guild.  We admired the clever red batik "ribbon" which adds dimension to this very creative quilt!
