Every two years our Guild has a quilt show. Because of COVID we missed 2020 show, that is why the 2022 show was very important for all Guild members. I also decided to participate, but unfortunately didn’t have new quilts. So I ended up with my challenge quilt “Time Machine” and my two miniatures. The first one has to be juried and I was happy to know that my “Time Machine” quilt got three ribbons: 2022 Best Overall Workmanship, NACQJ (National Asosociation of Certified Quilt Judges) Ribbon and first place in Innovative/Contemporary.
About two weeks ago my Russian friend asked me to make a presentation about quilted postcards. I was happy to share my miniature quilts with other quilters. The main idea of my presentation was about inspiration. What can inspire us to make a quilt even if it’s tiny. Fall is coming, so it’s time to think about long winter and cozy stuff, isn’t it? So, I made a small collection of fall themed quilted postcards.
I’m so excited! It is the second time in my life my quilt is on the cover of the quilt magazine. My quilt, “Harvest Time” was published in Quick and Easy Quilts magazine and on August 30th, 2022, the print issue will be available on newsstands. Thank you @Quiltingdaily and @Fonsandporter for this opportunity.
Do you know why I love patchwork? Every scrap piece can become a quilt. I had some left over pieces from the previous quilt and started to think about how I can use them. I sewed some blocks, added applique flowers, quilted the whole piece and ta-da! The table runner is done! I like how my scraps turned out, so I decided to make a new step-by-step tutorial.
I really love mini-quilts and believe that creating of mini quilt is the ultimate skill. Anyone can sew 2 by 2 inches squares, but not everyone can sew a quarter-inch square. For a long time I have been thinking about minatures and my first mini quilt “Blue Gzhel” I sewed in 2018. Of course, I did not sew small squares there, but quilting this miniature was not so easy.
