The North Chili Quilt Show

November23

There was a quilt show in my local area in October. The United Methodist Church of North Chili, New York, uses this quilt show as a vehicle to collect non-perishable food for a local food shelf and to display all the Cuddle Quilts made in the past year. The Cuddle quilts are given to local organizations to comfort children and caregivers. It’s an awesome undertaking, hat’s off to this church.

While at the show, I was thrilled to see a couple quilts there that either used one of my fabric lines or one of my patterns.

The first is a Stack and Whack Quilt called Perennial Garden by Mary Christopher. It uses The Ibiza Collection fabric line that I designed for Blank Quilting. I had no idea Mary had created this masterpiece. I just wish my photo did the quilt justice. But I think you get the idea.

Next I happened upon a sampler quilt by Shellee Williams-Allen. Hey, it’s my Introduction to Intermediate Quilting pattern! I love the color pallet she chose!

The final surprise was seeing my Batik Squares pattern done in these lovely green shades. It’s called “Kort’s Frogs” and was done by Sue Conge.

Thanks to all the ladies for letting me show off their handiwork. It’s always such a joy to see my designs being lovingly executed by others.

And I finish off with the photo of the featured quilter, Ann Dudek, The Scrapbook Quilter. Ann was present for the whole show and had a number of quilts on display, including her famous Scrapbook Quilt. This quilt was such a hit in our local quilting circles that Ann wrote a book around it, The Scrapbook Calendar Quilt.  Ann is a blast to hang with.
