Linda Satkowski’s Recent Quilt Tops
Well!! Here is the SECOND improv quilt made from our “parts department” bin. The pressure is on ME now as I have not even started mine.
To recap, Linda, Becca-Babb Brott, and I spent time two summers ago making blocks for each other, which we put into our “parts department” bins for a future improv quilt. You can see Becca’s in an earlier post here.
Isn’t this a fun quilt? Linda did a great job of putting these blocks together. I am doubly daunted now.
Here’s LInda’s finished “Long Time Gone” quilt top, Jen KIngwell, designer. Love her colors. This quilt was a challenge for Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild last year. You can see updates on what we are doing now on our Facebook page.
Here is Linda’s finished Traveling Quilt top. Wow!! As with mine, nine women have blocks in Linda’s quilt. Her theme was “houses.”

Becca Babb-Brott’s Latest Quilts
Becca’s “Long Time gone” quilt top, designed by Jen Kingwell, is done. This quilt was a challenge in our Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild. Note that Becca used a variety of neutral strips to piece her blocks together. She is not going to add a border.
Becca took an improv piecing class with Denyce Schmidt this past summer at Alewives Quilt Shop in Damariscotta Mills, Maine. The quilt top emerged the other day—all finished. It’s colorful and fun, and Becca really enjoyed the process she learned. Denyce Schmidt’s web site is as follows: http://dsquilts.com/
I am really intrigued by quilts made with the gorgeous solids on the market these days. There is one in my future for sure.

Mt. Battie Modern March Show and Tell
New member Anne Bargetz shared some more of her work.
Here she used Tula Pink blocks to make this small wall hanging.
Becca is now working on a neutral and grey spider web using selvages.
I showed my finished Tula Pink 100 Modern Blocks quilt—which was a challenge out of both Mt. Battie Modern and Coastal Quilters. I will show pictures when my granddaughter has it in hand.
Here are our February “Long Time Gone” challenge blocks—A Jen Kingwell design.
We had such a fun meeting—it was so filled with creativity and color!
