Quilt #13,402 - Finger Lake Log Cabin -

Audrey Arno
Tuttle, OK USA

Width: 9" Length: 9"

Designer: Judy Martin from her Log Cabin Quilt Book , used with written permission.

Materials/Techniques: The fabrics are all batiks. There are many pieces in this quilt, but I never came up with the same count twice. I think it is between 780 and 800 pieces with some of the pieces only a scant 1/8 inch. It is lightly quilted with clear thread.

Artist Statement: Yes, this is a log cabin block, with many of the logs pieced. It is named after the original, much larger quilt in Judy Martin's Log Cabin Quilt Book but made with fewer blocks, each reduced in size. It was so innovative I just had to try and make one.

Betyann Shaver
Aiken, SC USA

Width: 7.25" Length: 9.25"

Materials/Techniques: Scrunch dyed fabric, silk ribbon embroidery and beads.

Artist Statement: What is a Dwarf Lake Iris? The Dwarf Lake Iris is a miniature iris with showy deep blue flowers. They only grow around the Great Lakes shorelines in cool, moist lakeshore air. Their habitat has been greatly reduced so that they have been added to the endangered list. This is much like protecting our loved ones who have Alzheimer’s. We change their environment to keep them from harm. We try to stimulate their memory and as they slip away, all we can do is love them.

Martha Wolfersberger
Frenchtown, MT USA

Width: 9" Length: 12"

Quilt # 13,766 - Three Daffodils -

Jean Cheszek
Palatine, IL USA

Width: 8.75" Length: 9.75"

Materials/Techniques: Photo printed on fabric and quilted.

Artist Statement: Daffodils always remind me of spring and of my father--every year he would divide and replant the daffodils forming the border of our yard and the adjacent woods. Over time there were thousands of daffodils that would welcome us each spring. Here are some of his memories of growing up during the 1930's: "We lived in a rural area. Our house didn’t have electricity, running water, central heat or a telephone. It was heated with coal using an iron, pot-bellied stove that actually got red hot when it was going full blast. We sifted the ashes to salvage any coal that went through the grates. Without electricity or running water it’s obvious that we didn’t have inside plumbing; therefore, we had an outhouse. Every year we had a big garden. We also raised chickens and at one time we had geese in the back yard. We had about an acre and a half. The school that I went to was a two room school with two teachers. There were five students in my class.” — Charles Schroeder, on his childhood in the 1930′s

Quilt # 14,047 - Eccentricity II -

Martha Wolfersberger
Frenchtown, MT USA

Width: 8.75" Length: 11.25"

Materials/Techniques: Machine pieced using cotton fabrics and threads and machine quilted using cotton batting and threads.

Artist Statement: This little blue and white quilt has Eccentric Star blocks set on point with partial eight-pointed star blocks as the setting triangles to give a sort of a fringe around the perimeter. I originally named it “Eccentricity” but then after the quilt was finished and the label with the name was sewn in place, realized I had given another quilt the same name. So this one became “Eccentricity II”.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
