Wall Quilt 23, "Oh My Deer!" by Christy Gregg  “When I saw this pattern, I knew I had to make it for my husband who is an avid outdoorsman and deer hunter. I kept it a secret while making it and surprised him with it when he came home from a hunting trip yet again empty handed. It now hangs in our living room. A win/win for both of us. I get another quilt hung on the wall and he gets a deer made by his ‘Dear.’” Capital City, Empty, Deer, Hunting, Moose Art, Husband, Quilts, Living Room, Wall

Wall Quilt 17, "Minnesota Memories" by Judith Boettcher  “My sister Susie and I found an eight section panel featuring Minnesota birds, fish, and plants while quilt shop hopping in Northern Minnesota. We divided the panel and she made a table runner from four of the sections and I created this wall hanging with multiple embellishments.

Wall Quilt 07, "Be My Neighbor" by Marsha Walper  “The houses in this quilt remind me of the song Fred Rogers sang at the beginning of his show, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. ‘It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood…won't you be my neighbor?’ The hand quilting on each block represents a sun shining on the neighborhood. The gray shadows make the blocks appear to stand out from the rest of the quilt.” Fred Rogers, Hand Quilting, Capital City, Beautiful Day, Shadows, The Neighbourhood, Rest, Houses, Sun

Wall Quilt 03, "Queen's Gambit" by Mary Whelan  “When the Autumn Reverie was in full color in my hometown, it was time for us to go indoors where it was warm and bring out our board games.

Wall Quilt 09, "80 Years of Focusing on Family" by Jennifer Moore  “I made this quilt for my mother to celebrate her 80th birthday. She is central to our family as a daughter, sister, mother, step-mother, aunt, and grandmother.

Lap Quilt 05, "Filigree" by Gail Renna “I love the Aboriginal fabrics and had been searching for a pattern to use them. I paired them with hand-dyed background fabric. As a Certified Instructor for Studio 180 Design, I make a lot of quilts using their tools. This quilt used the Corner Beam and the Large Square Squared tool to make this unique Snail Trail Block variation. I quilted with twisted vines, ribbon candy, and swirls.”

Bed Quilt 05, "More Squares" by Shelley Woodyard  “While making garments for our 3 daughters, I began saving squares for a 'someday' quilt. After years of quilting, these squares now appear large next to my preferred 1 inch ones. However, since some 9-Patch units were already made, I forged ahead. The light and dark grays give the on-point 9-Patches a modern feel. Recalling each original garment offers a pleasant stroll down memory lane.” Quilt Bedding, Capital City, Light In The Dark, Daughters, Squares, Patches, Quilting, The Originals, Modern
