SAO Quilts and Other Projects Completed in 2012

Posted By on June 26, 2016

In 2007 I finished 17 quilts. In 2008 I finished 19 quilts. In 2009 I must have been completely crazy – it appears I made 34 quilts in 2009. I slowed down a little and ONLY made 27 in 2010, in 2011 I also made 27 quilts and many other projects!  In 2012 I made 18 quilts!

 

Quilts made by SAO in 2012

#1       THE SPANGLE TREE was my January Vicki Welsh Color Palette Challenge as well as my Free Motion Quilting Challenge.   We took an image and used colors from it to create something quilted.    I actually pieced AND quilted this one with leaves.

#12     THE YUM YUM TREE was my May Vicki Welsh Color Challenge and Free Motion Challenge for May (this is the last color challenge that I did. It was fun using different colors but I didn’t enjoy the free motion quilting at all.  I guess I just wanted to move on to other things.)   This one was also inspired by Grandangel Sarah Epps.

#13  JANNAE’S ART QUILT (61 x 78) is precious.  Grandangel Jannae did most of these drawings when she was 5 and 6 years old.   She used crayon on cloth and we ironed the color into the fabric.  It was challenging because not all of her masterpieces were the same size.  I think it turned out great!

#15     Grandma Reiter’s Colorado Happy Hippos was a Colonial Piecemaker’s CHILDHOOD MEMORY Challenge Quilt (36 x 36)  It was quilted by Sara Parrish.  My grandmother knew that I loved hippos so she created these hippos for me to use.   Eleanor Reiter, designed and cut out all of the fabric hippos from her vintage stash.  The sleeve for this quilt is made from the sleeves of my mother, Marjorie Albertson’s blouse.  (KAREN DUMONT used these hippos and published the pattern.)
