Laurie H’s Bench Pillow

Finished project. Ironic, since this may be the only memory that we will have of this year’s summer.  Be well. Laurie H

 

Kathy K’s Dresden Star blocks.  Made 18 of these beautiful blocks for a quilt for a dear friend’s daughter.  She is graduating from high school and going off to college in the Fall.  She too is sunny and bright and this quilt will be going off on her next adventure with her.

 

Kathy Kelner’s Friendship Swap quilt – Finally quilted!

Kathy K’s  sampler quilt.  This is a Friendship Swap quilt I did with Karen W. and four other women back in 2015.   It sat for a time while other projects took over.  Finally quilted and ready to keep me warm and comfy on the couch!

 

Andrea G’s Sampler Quilt

Andrea G’s Sampler Quilt.  This is a Block of The Month quilt I made under the watchful eye and support from friend and member Lucie B. I painted this accent wall a color to complement the quilt.

5/16/2020 A FEW OF MY FAVORITE QUILTS

Hello Ladies,

Here are the latest photos sent in by our members of their projects for A Few of My Favorite Quilts.

These are all so beautiful I can’t decide which ones I like best.  They are all too good!   I truly have no favorite.

Thank you for sharing  these wonderful photos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jo Anne Powell

This is quilt is definitely in my top ten: “Converged DNA” is a portrait of our son, daughter-in-law, and their son. It was created for the Quilters’ Consortium of New York State 2018 challenge (is Huntington Quilters Guild a member?), received First Place, and toured quilt shows throughout New York State.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Michelina’s Sampler Quilt 

I took a class at city quilter not even knowing what the project was. To my shock, it was this Sampler. I knew I was in over my head but I was determined to see it through. My first time doing appliqué and I could see how much I improved between the first and last block!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Joan O’R’s Sampler Quilt 

I loved working on this Little Treasures foundation pieced quilt in Judy’s class. We all used different color schemes making each one unique.

 

Fantastic work Ladies!  Hope you enjoy the quilts.

If you would like to have your work displayed, please send a photo and a short story regarding the project to Huntingtonquilters@gmail.com

I will post photos for A Few of My Favorite Quilts on Saturdays.

Thank you for your wonderful contributions.

Kathy Kelner

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE QUILTS – First installment photo!

Hello Ladies!

Here is our first installment photo of  “A FEW OF MY FAVORITE QUILTS!”

These posts will highlight an individual quilter in our group who wants to share their wonderful quilt.

The first quilt highlighted is Joan K’s Gypsy Spirit quilt.

It is called “GYPSY SPIRIT” by Diane Tomlinson. It is hand pieced and sewn. I learned how to sew curves by doing this quilt. I had the fabric in my stash. Probably took me two months. I really love it and it was hung in the Levittown Library for a quilt exhibition last year.

 

The next Favorite Quilt is from Jo Anne Powell

Silver-lined Iris, by Jo Anne Powell; created spring 2018; 14“ x 14“

I used this quilt as a demonstration for programs taught for the Naples (FL) Quilters’ Guild (7/18) and the Hands All Around Erie Quilt Guild (8/18). It was exhibited at the Westfield Quilt Guild Silver Anniversary Show Challenge (9/2018 – a member judged the show and gave it no recognition), later at the Naples Quilt Show (3/2020 when it received a First Place Ribbon, the National Assoc. of Certified Quilt Judges Merit Award, and was a finalist for Best in Show).

I am currently working on my third Cherrywood Challenge and my fourth Quilters Consortium of New York State Challenge.

 

Pat Akins Favorite Quilt

Asking for my favorite quilt – like asking for my favorite child!

Depending on the day, could be lots of different choices. So, I decided to share my first quilt. I guess it could be considered my favorite, since I enjoyed the process, and got me going on my quilt journey. Don’t know where those stains came from, except to say it was used and loved! I hand quilted it (probably the last time I did that!) Look at the size of those stitches. This quilt was done in a beginner quilting class with Carolyn Bachsmith, when she owned Patchworks in downtown Sayville. I remember when I said I wanted to do the quilting in a contrasting color so it would stand out. She was horrified! Little did I know, it would be the thing to do in a few years. Didn’t date this quilt, but, its got to be 30 years old.

 

 

Joan O’Reilly’s Favorite Quilt

I loved working on this Little Treasures foundation pieced quilt in Judy’s class. We all used different color schemes making each one unique.

 

 

This new program will be posted every Saturday.  Send us a photos of your FAVORITE QUILT, along with a short description telling us about this project and why it is your favorite.

It could be a tremendous King Sized quilt or a tinie tiny minature wall hanging that you just love!

Looking forward to seeing all of your work!

Kathy Kelner
