Winter Memories by Sue Garman


The description card from the tribute to Sue Garman last month in Houston, Texas, reads: "In Winter Memories, you can almost hear children laughing in the midst of building a snowman, you can almost feel the icy cold of a starry night; and you can sense the joy of a season of giving."
We love the high-contrast flying geese border which really sets off these angular geometric blocks !


Sue's delightful, vibrantly colorful work is all machine-pieced, without applique. It is hand-quilted, embroidered and embellished with buttons.


Santa's neatly pleated shirt and the little bell on his cap are just some of the fun embellishments here that add to the three-dimensional appearance of this quilt.

Double Nine Patch - Meowry Christmas! by Nancy Landon, quilted by Karolyn Nubin Jensen


This Double Nine Patch quilt was inspired by a magazine photo of an antique quilt. There are 354 little 3" 9-patch blocks in the quilt, which was beautifully quilted by Karolyn Nubin Jensen. Nancy Landon says, "I saw a picture of the original quilt in a McCall's magazine and knew it was perfect for using my stash of 1800's "cat" shirtings." (The light colored prints within the nine patch blocks have line drawings of cats.)
