Student Work - 3D Explosion

I have some photographs of student work from workshops here. If you would like to have your photo included, please email me a photo of your quilt, your name (it can be just your first name if you are shy), and the name of your quilt. And if you see your work and you would like you name on it, please let me know and I will add it. I hope to have this area grow so that new students can be inspired by other student's work!

Spinning Star Scrolls: The Summer side of Bidwell

Spinning Star Scrolls: The Summer side of Bidwell's quilt

This scroll is on the other side of the quilt and it is 50% smaller.

Spinning Star Scrolls by Bidwell C. Drake

Spinning Star Scrolls by Bidwell C. Drake

Bid worked straight from the book. She says, "I machine appliquéd and machine quilted the scrolls on lightweight Pellon because I knew I wanted to make it reversible, and did not want the quilting to show on the other side. For the Summer side I shrank the pattern by 50%. Deliberately offset the scrolls on that side because of the weight if they were back-to-back with the larger scrolls. Quilted the entire background by hand with red thread, then machine appliquéd the scrolls."

Dancing Colors by Janet Yokoe

Dancing Colors by Janet Yokoe

Janet bought the book and made the quilt design from the front of the book on her own. The quilt placed 5th or Honorable Mention in the local Hawaii Quilt Guild Show in May of 2006. It was judged (voted) by the viewers.
