Karen Watts – "Mariner" - 40x48”. Hand Appliquéd, Machine Appliquéd, 2009.
Machine quilted by Karen Watts. Original Design. The Ultimate Guild Challenge of

sailing camp in Seabrook. She learned to sail at age 11, and practically lived
at the camp for a couple years.
Allison - "Winter Star" - 39x50”. Machine Appliquéd, 2009. Machine quilted by

from Joy's Fabrics.

Denise Green - "Blooming Birds" -- 39x49”. Machine Appliquéd, 2009. Machine
quilted by Denise Green. Birds of Paradise by Eileen Sullivan. I wanted to
participate in the "Ultimate Guild Challenge" but wanted to use my current stash
of projects. I found this pattern and fabric from a trip to Beaumont to see Mary
Ellen Hopkins many years ago. I had to improvise to make the pattern large
enough for challenge rules, but I have a finished project now!
