My name is Gail Clarke, I live in Burgundy, France, and here's a photo of my latest quilt off the frame. It will be on exhibition at the "Pour l'Amour du Fil" quilt show in Nantes, France, the third week of April. My Dear Jane will be one of one hundred reproduction quilts on show.
My Dear Jane is hand-pieced and hand-quilted on a full frame (4 boards, 4 clamps). It was totally addictive and I enjoyed every minute of it - in fact, I might start another one just to try out different fabrics!!
I love visiting this blog!

My name is Jill Meszaros and I am from Pennsylvania. This is a picture of my "Underhill Tree of Life Wholecloth Quilt". I was inspired to create it for the Great Lakes Seaway Trail 2012 Quilt Show. You can read more about the quilt and see a better picture at this site:
It is so very hard to get a good picture of a wholecloth. I think they have done a better job than I have. Thanks again for letting us share our quilts.
This Farmer’s wife is all 111 blocks. It was hand pieced and hand quilted. I used the Baptist fan quilt design. I use a hand held hoop and thread baste before quilting. I love hand work, but must admit I am more hand pieced topper than hand quilter. So many quilts waiting to be quilted.

It took me a full year to complete the applique and the quilting – loved every step of the process except perhaps the basting before quilting, which took the best part of a weekend on my knees on the floor!

I started the needle turn applique back in the spring of 2011 as a mystery quilt where part of the pattern was released each month.
Then the section with these flowers was released and I was in love again.
that I posted about on this blog.
Thanks to ideas shared by this blog's followers, I stumbled into the perfect (albeit insane) fill. Magenta thread on a white background. It does look super cool...as long as you are viewing it close up. There are lots of details like that in this quilt.
It was a long journey and worth every stitch.
