Random.org has determined that the reader who won Piece O’ Cake’s Backyard Birds is No. 39, Pat! Congratulations to Pat, who says that hand appliqué is her first love, so this will be right up her alley.

The show at the end of June in San Luis Obispo had some beautiful appliqué quilts.

Fragrant Memories by Margaret Taylor

I love how fearless Margaret was in creating this masterpiece not from a pattern.

Earth and Twig by Sally Inouye

I’m a big fan of the designs of Sue Spargo.

Empress Feathers by Janie Walker

We were just talking about how delightful everything is from Piece O’ Cake. :) Beautiful colors on this one.

Until next time,
By Kay Mackenzie

    With regards to the sue spargo quilt – how can it be “hand” quilted on a long arm? I am confused by the terms. Thanks

    Hi Kay, it was so fun to see you and your beautiful booth at the show. I loved so many of the quilts. Sally Inouye’s included! I think what she meant by hand quilted on a longarm was that is was hand guided and freehand at that. Her work was seen on many of the quilts show and is so inspiring!

    Jacqueline, I agree with Loris… I think she means “hand guided.”
