More HMQS Quilts (Part 3)

"Friendship Chain for Susan", pieced by Barbara Noriega, quilted by DeAnn Oliekan, made from a traditional pattern for Barbara's friend, Susan.

Quilted with Hobbs batting and Superior threads. Center motifs designed by DeAnn to set off the open spaces.

"Periwinkle Power" by Kathie Beltz, quilted by Mara Novak, is based on a Hunter's Star pattern....

...set in a Sunshine and Shadows variation.

"Jellylisous" by Deborah Poole: "Irish Chain portion of this quilt is made from Moda's jelly roll collection. Backing and coordinating fabrics are also by Moda."

Quilter's Dream batting poly blend, Superior threads.

"The Maze of Life" by Joann Sarachman: "Adapted from the petroglyph Man in the Maze. Fabric is hand painted, silkscreened and stamped. The maze was hand appliqued to the black background which was discharged slightly."

This is Joann's first attempt at extensive beading and bobbin embroidery. She used freeform quilting motifs.

"Bethsaida Stories" by Carolyn Aichele celebrates 3000 years of history of the Bethsaida archaelogical site in the Galilee region of Israel. Three time periods are featured.

Techniques used include piecing, bargello, applique and embellishment with fibers and beads.

"Art Deco Sunflower Simplicity" by Kaye Evans, quilted by Sue McCarty. "I took the traditional sunflower block and blew it apart to create this stunning quilt, using the art deco period of history as a roadmap."

"Custom quilting completes the picture."

"Spirits Having a Human Experience" by Denise Austin, quilted by Kim Peterson.

Embellished with Swarovski crystals, llama and sheep wool for the people's hair, outline embroidery and various types of beads.

Each figure is bound to its neighbors by a silver cord...
