“Fall Stars”

Marsha Kistner of Clinton, New York was looking for a new way to use her block of the month quilt blocks, made from her local quilt shop’s pattern. She modified the pattern “Fall Stars” (McCall’s Quilting, September/October 2017), by replacing the leaf blocks with a BOM (block of the month) quilt block. Since she only has few quilts at home, this one is a keeper and it will keep her and her husband warm on those cool fall nights.

Diane Miller-Osborne of Victor, New York was delighted by the traditional quilt pattern “Storm at Sea” (McCall’s Quilting, September/October 1996). Diane, along with her mother and sister, made this quilt for her daughter’s wedding in 2008. They added two hearts and named the quilt “Love in the Storm.” The trio has made wedding quilts for each of her mother’s grandchildren. It is a wonderful memory of quilting together!

The Quilt Divas version of “Twilight Garden”

“Twilight Garden”

The Quilt Divas of Greensboro, North Carolina worked together to make “Twilight Garden” (McCall’s Quilting, July/August 2016), for fellow quilt diva Wanda Wellborn. The 4½” square center was the perfect size to include their sentiments and photos. The quilt was presented to Wanda on September 9, 2018, during their annual retreat. She was totally surprised and delighted with her signature quilt!

“Pinwheel Puzzle”

Jeannie M. Bush of Litchfield, Minnesota dubbed this past summer as the Summer of the Stash, challenging herself to make quilt tops and backings with only fabric from her stash, and to not buy any patterns! She has always wanted to make a two-color quilt, so Jeannie used “Pinwheel Puzzle” (McCall’s Quilting, March/April 2018). She needed a quilt for her queen size guest bed, so Jeannie enlarged this pattern to 96″ x 104.” Lynette Mart of Sturgis, South Dakota quilted the quilt.
