Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild’s “Traveling Quilts”

This month’s meeting was our THIRD round with our traveling quilts.

We are so enjoying this project.

To remind, each of us is able to say if we want additions connected or not, what colors we like/dislike, and so forth.

Here’s is Becca Babb-Brott’s addition to Vicki Fletcher’s quilt:  “Cherish What Is” and linking up completed parts into a whole.

Here’s Tori Manzi’s additions to Gus Bruns quilt–gorgeous and fun ROUND log cabin blocks.

Nancy Wright and Gus Bruns added to Margaret Elaine Jinno’s “village.”

Joanne Moore added to Tori Manzi’s quilt–the scattered flying red geese.

Vicki Fletcher added to Nancy Wright’s quilt.

Look at the “Singer” fabric Vicki found.  Love these bright funky squares.

Lynn Vermeulen added the spectacular circle of houses to Linda Satkowski’s quilt.

Wow!  Just wow!

Margaret Elaine Jinno is still working on my quilt AND had an operation on her hand this week.  The five coffee cups represent my sons and DILs.  Get well ME, so you can SEW again.

Linda Satkowski added the left and top portions to Joann Moore’s quilt.  Love the top frame and the red circles.  Both additions are so graphic and compelling.

I added to the first four of Becca’s words–using fabrics and themes she likes.  I needed an intervention to STOP ME as I was having so much fun.

I found this little lady in one of Becca’s quilts and took a surprise picture when she wasn’t looking.

So that’s where this funky lady came from.

Here’s my label–an idea copied from Amanda Jean Nyberg’s Sunday Morning Quilts.  I’ve fallen in love with this book and with Nyberg’s No Scrap Left Behind, which was just released.  Making the triangle was a fun project.

 

Warning to Joann Moore:  I’ve just had to make myself STOP working on your quilt!!!

(We are missing one quilt this month–it will get moved along nevertheless, so pics next time.  And we are skipping June, so the next pics will be in July.)

  1. These quilts are so spectacular and creative! I can’t get my head around how you come up with these designs. Impressive.

    • I am so enjoying working on these traveling quilts. It’s not so much about an overall design–more about illustrating someone’s theme. We are taking each quilt as it comes and just adding to it–creating a “conversation” that adds and does not shut down. Some of our ideas work better than others, but it’s all ok. We are also learning so many new skills: curve piecing, new color arrangements, bias tape manipulation, making words, designing our own blocks. I am feeling both stretched and energized.
