Winter Memories, 59 x 65", by Rose Rumball-Petre


We love the combination of piecing and wool applique in this fun quilt!  It was machine pieced, hand appliqued and hand quilted.  It was displayed at the 5 Bee Quilters Guild show near Sun Valley, Idaho in October, 2017. This is a local (Sun Valley) design variation of the Poorhouse Quilt Design's Winter Memories quilt pattern from a class taught by Susan Coons, who often teaches at the Sun Valley Fabric Granary.


Susan redesigned the center block and added a Sun Valley Sun near the top. The barn is embellished with "Sun Valley" embroidery, so it resembles the iconic red barn on Sun Valley Road. You can see Rose's wool applique details, embellishments, and hand quilting on the adorable snowman, below.

And to All a Good Night by Sue Garman

From the Sue Garman exhibit in Houston, Texas, the description card states, " Crisp wintry snow and a starry night are the perfect setting for snowmen, angels, and Santa with his tiny reindeer! This quilt brings sheer delight for years to come. And to All a Good Night is made of a long applique panel, an array of both Four Patch Evening Star blocks, and extended Nine Patch blocks, and a set of borders.

Close-up And To All a Good Night

Here's a close-up of the applique block, with an enchanting depiction of a snowy night, complete with evergreens and tiny houses. Reindeer fly through the sparkling sky, while a little angel and bunny add extra interest to this landscape scene done in folk-art motif. Sue's delightful work is machine pieced, hand-appliqued and hand-quilted.
