I used ombre fabric and a variety of free motion quilt designs. The curves were cut free form. Each section was quilted with designs from Leah Days Free Motion Quilting Project. This is my first small quilt using her designs.
I manipulated a photo I took of some Lupines going on the road side in homer, AK. I took different sections of the flowers and used photo shop to change the appearance of them. The other blocks are paper pieced palm leaves. This quilt took a first place and division ribbon at the Alaska State Fair in 2008
Chick on a Stick: By Lorraine Allers
This was a challenge from my favorite shop in Alaska
It was National Chicken Dancing month and we had
to design a quilt for it.
This was taken from a photo of my sons dog. It measures 8 1/2 X 11 in. It is four layers of fabric. I thread painted it. This is a Maria Elkin technique. This was entered in the Alaska State Fair and was awarded a First and Division Champion ribbon in 2010
Purple Grandparents by Lorraine Allers
The same technique to make Brewtus was used in this small quilt. This quilt is 8 1/2 X 11. It was made for my Granddaughter who insisted that we were purple.
Chewy By Lorraine Allers
This 8.5 X 11 quilt was made for my Grandson Jon Dodge. This is his dog Chew. It was made using the same technique and the Purple Grandparents, and Brewtus. It was his 2012 Christmas gift.
