AQS QuiltWeek Chattanooga, Finding My Voice Exhibit   

War Eagle
76" square
Design by Julie Herman
Quilted by Lauren Byrne
Every college freshman must have a "going-off'-to-college" quilt in school colors.  My grandson, Preston, asked me to make his a modern quilt.  I used Kona solids and the no border design from Jaybird Quilts, Julie Herman.

Crosses for Nick
55.5" x 62.5"
Design by Faith Jones
Quilted by Rhonda Fulghum
Using alternate gridwork to lay out the scrappy cross blocks with a white background made this quilt very modern.  This is a special quilt for a special grandson, Nick!

LilBit's Log Cabin
36" square
Original Design
This is an improv pieced wonky log cabin design with a fractured strata block in the center.  The alternate blocks are more strata blocks in neutral Batiks.  This little quilt belongs to my four pound Yorkie, named LilBit!

French Countryside
83" x 93"
Original Design
This quilt is a free piecing, improv piece that was assembled using Quilt As You Go method.  Extensive straight-line organic quilting was practiced in each block unit.

Design by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr
AQS Mystery Quilt
This is a fun piece using asymmetry and pieced half circles with Courthouse Step blocks in improv style.  Using the grey background makes this quilt pop!!
