Georgia Celebrates Quilts®
“Autumn Splendor” is the creation of more than 60 ECQG members over a years’ time. The 92” x 92” quilt is adapted by Linda Simons from Edyta Sitar’s pattern “Common Bride” used with permission. Over 450 hours were dedicated to modifying the design, selecting fabric, assembling kits, making the top. Guild member Bella Bamert’s machine quilting provides the perfect finishing touch.
This medallion quilt is a complex combination of pieced blocks – a central feathered star, LeMoyne stars, and “Trip to the Alter” flower blossoms – and intricate appliquéd stems and leaves that bring the creation together. The quilt includes more than 60 fabrics, mostly batiks, and has 25 star blocks, 20 blossom blocks, 212 1.5” half-square triangles, 208 diamonds, 284 on-point squares in the last pieced border, 376 hand appliquéd leaves and 10 yards of hand appliquéd bias stems.
Tickets are $1.00 each and the drawing will be held on June 13, 2015 at Georgia Celebrates Quilts®, the Guild’s biennial quilt show. You do not need to be present to win. Proceeds support the Guild’s educational programs. To purchase tickets by mail, send a SASE to Colleen Olsen, PO Box 71561, Marietta, GA 30007 with a check payable to ECQG. Mail orders accepted for 5 tickets or more. More information at www.ecqg.com.
This year’s raffle quilt, FANtastic, was based on the Jacob’s Fan and Flowers quilt designed by Sheri Wilkinson Lalk. The pattern was published in the book Fan Quilt Favorites by Oxmoor House (1995) and was used for our raffle quilt with permission. We altered the original pattern by adding an additional border of vines and a fan border, as well as by omitted the appliqué center and substituting a plain center with elaborate quilting.
Committee members were Jeanne Hawn (vice-president of the guild), Lynn Hapchuk, Anne Maio, and Maggie Manalo, with help from guild president Cheryl Hack. Many other guild members contributed by making the 9-inch fan blocks and smaller fan border blocks; others pieced the Jacob’s Ladder blocks and appliquéd the vines. The quilt is large, finishing at 90? by 108?, and was entirely hand-quilted by Joyce Huber.
The quilt will be raffled off during our quilt show, Quilts by the Bay, which will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 13-14, 2015. Tickets are $1.00 each of 6 for $5.00. If you would like to purchase raffle tickets, you may do so by sending a check made out to Annapolis Quilt Guild (with a self-addressed, stamped envelope) to Terri Flaherty, 148 Jean Road, Stevensville, MD 21666.
