More Beautiful Quilts! From Linda, Theola, Marcel, Carolyn, Samantha, Sharon, Hong, Marilyn, Brenda, and me!

The barrage of quilts continues! How wonderful! This is a large gallery of quilts, so I’m putting the information concerning the quilters and piecers at the top of this post, and detailed information about each quilt (e.g., Pantos) at the bottom.  To see the quilters and piecers involved in each quilt, hover your cursor over the thumbnail to see the names.  To see a closeup of the quilt, click on the thumbnail.

The Quilters are:

  • Linda LaFleur, of Quilting Memories in Tucson, AZ.
  • Marcel Miller, of Threadgoods Quilting.  Marcel is the founder of Coastal Carolina Machine Quilters.
  • Carla Triemer (me), of Quilts Beyond Borders, FL & IL.  Member of the Northern Illinois LongArm Guild (NILAG) and the Pelican Piecemakers
  • Sharon Mitchell of Lofty Quilts, Palatine, IL.  Sharon is also a member of NILAG.

Among the Piecers are:

  • Theola Breaux of Texas
  • Carolyn Sower of Texas
  • Samantha, age 12
  • Hong Chang of Australia
  • Marilyn Barba of Connecticut
  • Brenda Barnett of IL.

All of the Piecers and Quilters are frequent contributors to QBB, and we appreciate your contributions very much!   Note that we also have some that were done by “Anonymous Quilter”, an all-too-familiar sobriquet for the ladies who provide tops without labels or identifying information to us from time to time.  If you recognize a top from the Anonymous Quilter, please tell us her name so we can give credit where credit is due.   Now, here are the quilts!!

  1. Daisy Quilt:  Quilted by Linda LaFleur.   Top by Anonymous Piecer.   Pantographs used were:  1)  Donna Kleinke’s (onesongneedlearts) Baby Booties border;  Dahlia block in blue blocks; Baby Bunny Frame 5 around the flowers.

Thanks to all of the ladies involved in creating these lovely quilts.  Several of them have given us permission to offer them for sale at Houston at the IQF.  As we mentioned in an earlier post, when we sell a single quilt for fundraising we normally bring in enough cash to:

  • pay excess baggage fees to get 40-50 quilts to orphans in Ethiopia; OR
  • pay for backing and binding for 15 quilts; OR
  • pay for postage to get 50 quilt tops to longarmers so they can be finished.

I know that the people who receive these quilts, whether they are purchased in Houston or whether we send them to children in Uganda (upcoming opportunity) or possibly on an American Indian Reservation here in the US (another potential opportunity), will enjoy these beautiful quilts.

Regards,

Carla

      Hi Audrey! Are you one of the Anonymous Quilters in this group, perchance? And are you the person who did the NC State top I’ve been finishing up? If you’re the Audrey I think you are, you make awesome tops, and I really enjoy working on them!

      Regards,
      Carla
