Monthly Door Prize Quilts

In 2005/06, I was the Door Prize Committee chairman for my local quilt guild (Cotton Patch Quilters). I decided that I would provide a small quilt each month that could be raffled. These are the quilts made for each month........


This was the quilt for January. It was based on a larger wall hanging that
I made for my house.



February gave me a chance to try some machine trapunto.

These blocks reminded me of shamrocks, making it a great quilt for March.
The pattern came from the book "More Nickel Quilts".

I wanted to try this stained glass technique using "lead line".
This product is much like nylon cord and it works great in
place of bias tape. The pattern is from "Art Glass Quilts"

In May, I used unfinished edge applique to create this scene.


This quilt came from the book that I also added to the door
prize raffle. I told the woman that won that she should
keep it quilt safe as it had some handwork on it
and "I DONT DO HANDWORK"!!!!

July needed stars and pinwheels!!!!

I had a pair of flamingos that were part of the door prize, so a
flamingo quilt had to be included also.


This was a design from the book "Square Dance". Unfortunately, I did
something wrong somewhere in the process so it looks a bit
different than was planned, but still turned out ok.



October was "Breast Cancer Awareness" month, so this quilt was
made from a pattern in the book, "Pink Ribbon Quilts"


The interior quilting design was taken from a piece of fabric that was
used for the backing of the quilt. The border came
from the book "Borders, Bindings & Edgings"

I was desperate for an idea for the December block and fast running out
of time....then I remembered this piece that I had started years
before and hadn't finished, so I pulled it out and quickly finished
the project.
