Show and Share

One of the best things about working at GAQF is the inspiration we get everyday when customers and students come in with or send pictures of the projects they have been working on. This last couple of weeks we have had several people share with us and thought that you might like to see them, too.This stunning quilt is by Edlith Haak, a longtime customer. Nancy and I both love red and black quilts. I'm not sure of the name of this pattern (and I wish my photography was better) but the quilt is beautiful. What's next, Edlith?

This is a Pineapple quilt made by Robin Newton. She took our Pineapple class in Wichita a couple of months ago. She chose to use lots of homespun plaids and made me wish that I hadn't pared down my homespun collection. Robin, I love the quilt and your backyard!

Karen Hammond, also of Wichita, chose to use 30's prints. Each of her Pineapple blocks starts with a black print square. We were playing with mirrors trying to decide on corners. The narrow black strip seemed perfect. It seems like her friend here agrees. : ) Great job, Karen!

Another long time customer of ours, Dorothy Mannon, made this gorgeous Pineapple quilt in a class here at GAQF, taught by Jane Dumler. I love the beautiful blues accented with the red. Way to go, Dorothy!

Last, but not least is a wall hanging made by Nancy Sampson. She made it in the Mini Licorice Star Garden GAQF class taught by Ann Petersen. Ann won a 1st place ribbon for her Licorice Star Garden quilt at the IQA show in Houston last year. Nancy's piecing is beautiful and her quilting is great. Nancy also made this incredible DU quilt. She is always up for a challenge, so I think we will be seeing more of her work. Thanks, Nancy!

Thank you all for making our jobs more fun and inspiring! Our goal is to open up a gallery on the website to share the inspiration. Please keep sharing your projects with us.
