Anita's quilts and quilting

A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.

Quilted hand

These are two wall hangings I started during a painting class with Hollis Chatelain a few months ago.  I finished the quilting in order to enter them into the fair.

This is the back side.

This wall hanging is one used just for testing the painting technique.

I used this one for testing different background stitching too.

Here’s a look at the back.

I don’t expect either of these to win ribbons.  One is in the textile department and one is in the fine arts department. My reason for the entry is only to get a judges critique.

I also entered an unfinished top and a single block but failed to take photos of those.  I saw some new categories I had suggested last year.  I was excited to see three categories based on “recycled” fabric. YEA!  Finally a place for recycled textiles.  I started with this.

And made this.

I know its not that special and really not a winner but I wanted to enter something so I could show interest in the categories. Enough interest means they will keep it.  I didn’t get the entry book until middle of June and I still had the other quilts to finish.

I really, really wanted to enter something in the other two recycle fabric categories but there just wasn’t enough time to get anything made.  It’s odd I had nothing to enter because I usually make recycled fabric stuff all the time. Especially rugs. My rug frame is broken and I simply haven’t fixed it.  Then I realized I’ve not made a rug for over a year.  This made me a little sad because I love making rugs almost as much as making quilts.  Come to think of it, I haven’t made as many quilts either.  Anyway, I definitely plan to enter the other categories next year.

    I really like your hand quilt. It deserves many ribbons in my view !!! It is graphically “simple” yet very powerful.
