Trunk Full of Quilts


I want to thank Soma of Whims and Fancies for hosting this trunk show.  I was seeing some of my blogging friends' trunk show presentations and thought I should join in again.

 

I was lucky to be chosen by  Henry Glass Fabrics as their October 2016 'Desire to Inspire' quilter and this is one of the quilts I made with the wonderful fabrics they sent me from the line Moose Lodge Cabin.  This so brought back memories of my Dad.



This is the Sulky BOM 2004 Christmas Quilt I made many years ago.  It is a tradition to trim a block/section with more embroidery, trinkets, buttons, applique with the grands.  


 

I designed a quilter's project bag for a local quilt guild for a class earlier this year.  Tuxedo cats on my outer pockets for my tuxie baby and poppies in memory of my great gran.


I was honored to win not only in the size class, but the Judges Award at the spring 2016 Empire Quilt Fest Show.  The 'Cats in My Garden' embroideries were done as a sew along with Red Brolly designs back in 2010 and got 'lost'.  Then once found in 2013, they were patch work pieced into a design and again that sat.  In 2015 I got the borders on and then finally quilted it to be ready for the show.



I like to do miniatures using up the barest of scraps.  This African theme came about from one of our quilt guild's 2015  programs demonstrating several applique techniques and all were used on this small piece.


I had the honor of designing and making four wallhangings for a special presentation by SALT - Schoharie Area Long Term (recovery from Storm Irene 5 years ago) to some  people/businesses who did a lot over the current year in various community services.


I love my plaid pups made during the quilt along with  Sew Fresh Quilts and her Dog Gone Cute pattern.

 

I was in a doll quilt swap for several years and it gave me lots of opportunity to play with blocks on a tiny scale - this was one of my favorites  and so happy it went to a dear friend.

This is just a bit of my work from the Trunk, but a nice mix of big, medium and small.  Be sure to visit all the others who have linked up for the Trunk Show - maybe even join in as well.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  12. Great quilt choices, Sharon. You always make so many beautiful ones so I am sure it was hard to limit it to so few to highlight.
