More quilts from Finding My Voice Exhibit at AQS QuiltWeek Chattanooga.

My Day of Sunshine
Needle Turn Applique
87.5" x 87.5"
Pattern by Jan Patek
Quilted by Jo McCluney
The featured technique is a combination of needle-turn applique and a little machine applique.  The entire quilt is done in Batiks.

Christmas Poinsettias
92" x 92"
Pattern by Bonnie Hunter
Quilted by Jo McCluney
The technique practiced in this mystery quilt pattern was working with the Easy Angle ruler to make half-square and quarter-square triangles.

First My Daughter, Now My Friend
64" x 80"
Pattern by Karen Combs
Quilted by Sandi Suggs
The design in this quilt was achieved with strong light/dark values in fabric.  This was the beginning of introducing some contemporary/modern designs to my quilts.

Pebbles and Stripes
37" x 37"
Pattern by Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen
Quilted by Sandi Suggs
With the discovery of the on-line Modern Quilt group, my interest shifted to a more modern approach to quilting.  Use of negative space, asymmetry in design, and straight-line quilting with some pebbles produced this piece.

Hear the Orcas Sing
89" x 97"
Pattern by Bonnie Hunter
Quilted by Jo McCluney
The use of black/white fabric for the background created a more interesting composition with the string blocks.  A new block in this quilt was Birds in the Air used in the border.

So, What's the Point?
Original Design by Sandi Suggs, Linda Smith, Sharon Joyner, and Karen Downer
Quilted by Sandi Suggs
This is a small modern improv piece done as a round robin with three friends.  One of my criteria was to "lose the points" on the stars.  It is straight-line quilted. 

Lemonade Stand
69" x 76.5"
Origin of pattern unknown
Quilted by Sandi Suggs
This is a fun two-color scrappy quilt using string piecing: stitch and flip corners; and strata blocks for the border.  The new technique was the stitch and flip corners tessellating to adjoining blocks..
