Rainbow Sampler by Michelle Thomas. The sampler blocks surrounding the Lone Star are from a block of the month offered by Stitch Your Art Out, one of our wonderful quilt shops. Michelle then created the Lone Star as the central motif for the finished quilt.


Members of our small art quilt group, which meets monthly, were well represented and took away some lovely ribbons. The next three quilts were created by Irmgard Lee.

These are by Mary Lou Pepe:

The following pieces are by Nancy Silverman, a former guild president and an art quilter. This first image is a presentation of her 1-quilt-per-week-for-a-year mini quilts. The two photos following are closeups of some of those pieces.

Nancy won a ribbon on this delicious orange quilt with purple accents - luscious indeed!

Nancy calls this her "batik" quilt.

The quilts below are mine: Grandmother's Cookies

I'm sorry to say that I missed taking photos of Tina Aumiller's and Fran MacEachren's quilts, the other members of our little art group.

Nevertheless, above is a sampling of photos from a wonderful local quilt guild show - one which I am proud to be a member.
