Turkey Tracks: January 31, 2019
Becca has finished her traveling quilt top: “The More I wonder, the More I love,” from as I recall Becca saying, THE COLOR PURPLE. WOW! Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild is going to show our Traveling Quilts to Coastal Quilters in February. The Traveling Quilts were a two-year project where eight women worked on each quilt, and each finished quilt is amazing and wonderful. Our next group project is “Bee Inspired” and EVERYONE in the group is participating. You can read about that project on the Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild Facebook page. The first blocks will be coming in at the Mt. Battie February meeting.
Becca, here, is backed by her developing selvage spider web quilt and is quilting her “Long Time Gone” quilt—a Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild project last year—designed by Jen Kingwell.
Lynn Vermeulen is making this strip-pieced quilt from solids, from a Timna Tarr quilt with which she fell in love. If you have not looked at Timna’s gallery online, it’s a treat. I love her use of saturated COLOR.
Karen Martin is workin gon the rail fence riff in batiks. Yummy.
Karen gave me this gorgeous little pouch, and Lynn game me a glass she ETCHED (oh my) with Sip and Sew.
Tori Manzi, as always, has so many inspiring projects. The top right is a Modern Quilt Guild mini-quilt swap, which will be finished and sent off soon. The recipient wanted hand-dyed pink fabrics. The foundation-pieced color-wheel circles are going to be so interesting. And the pear block is as well.
This quilt is a gift for someone who is fond of the tv show “The Who.” (I think I have that right.) There is no end to Tori’s creativity.
Such fun projects!
