Awesome Quilt Featuring Mariner`s Compass Stars
Marie Glenwright from York, PA shared her quilt that has been accepted in the AQS Lancaster show. Marie wrote the following description: It's 54"by 54", hand pieced, appliqued, quilted and embroidered. The block in the middle is the Switzerland block, outer middle is the China block then around the outside is 4 Germany blocks with 4 applique that I made from a stencil ( that I enlarged ). I purchased at a home improvement store. After finishing the quilting I thought I'd do a "little" embroidery on the front and back. Good luck Marie and thanks for sharing your spectacular quilt.
This Sunrise quilt by Edda K. from Portage, Michigan was started when Edda took a class from me in Kalamazoo. She did a beautiful job finishing the quilt and even attempted the delicate piped binding. She was pleased with the result....as she should be!
Play The Sunset
Edda K. from Portage, Michigan recently sent me some photos of quilts that she has made from my out of print book, Easy Stash Quilts. This stunning version of Play the Sunset looks super in her home. Edda sent pictures of two more quilts she made from this book, equally as stunning and mentioned this is one of her favorite books.
This stunning Super Nova was made by Janelle Curtis of Queensland, Australia for her daughter's 21st birthday. She also won first prize in the non-professional pieced category at the Queensland Quilt Show 2009. This pattern is based upon a quilt in Easy Stash Quilts (out of print).

Pat's Star Quilt
Pat Frazier of Ocala, Florida made this wonderful quilt featuring the blocks from 50 Fabulous Paper-Pieced Stars before making the following quilt. I do believe she is hooked on paper piecing. Love the black setting pieces. They really make the colors pop!
