September Mt. Battie Modern Traveling Quilts
The “reveal” at our September meeting was so much fun!
The quilts are so full of life and energy.
Here’s what Becca Babb-Brott made for the quilt she was working on.
Here’s Becca’s contribution alongside other blocks in this quilt. The owner asked that someone start to link up the blocks now.
Vicki Fletcher made a village green for Margaret Elaine Jinno’s quilt. It shimmers with life, doesn’t it? This block could become a strong unifier for this quilt. Good job Vicki!
Nancy Wright made this block for Becca’s quilt.
This block is adding a whole new element to this quilt. Becca wanted to join all the pieces herself at the end.
Tori Manzi added the lower blocks and the color wheel on the right to Lynn’s quilt. Wow! This quilt is going in a very interesting direction with the work of Nancy Wright’s sewing machine and Tori’s blocks.
Lynn Vermeulen these words to Joanne Moore’s quilt. They are PERFECT! I like the way Lynn used blocks to separate words.
I worked on Vicki Fletcher’s quilt. I made her a “tree of life” block, and, as she homesteaded in Alaska, I gave her a forest and a cabin in a clearing in the forest. Vicki has an abiding Christian faith, so I thought the “tree of life” would be nice for her. The small trees are from Janeen Van Niekerk’s Craftsy shop, Quilt Art Designs, which features her foundation piecing designs. Other trees and the cabin came from my EQ7 program.
Here’s the label I made for Vicki. We are each making a label for whatever quilt we worked on. AND, we are giving ourselves two months per quilt now.
LInda Satkowski added the row of “x” blocks at the bottom of Tori’s quilt. And the flower on the right–English Paper Piecing, bias tape, and applique leaves. Tori’s theme is “color,” so we are having fun with bright colors in this quilt. It is on my design wall now, and I am thinking about it. Linda’s additions are going to be a hard act to follow.
So, that’s it for now. I’ll have a separate post on the Mt. Battie Show and Tell.
