Favorite Quilt That I Own


The Title (above) basically describes what this Web page is intended to show. (For those who participate in the following, as described below):

What is Our "Favorite Quilt That I Own" (FQTIO)?

This topic came about as I recognized that March 2018 was "International Quilting Month". As I wrote the term, I decided to change it (for purposes of this Web page) to be a celebration of Quilt(s) from a personal point of view, not "just' Quilting.

Could I, in fact, decide what is "My Favorite Quilt That I Own" (FQTIO)?

If you wish to participate in this quest: Following, is the current plan for this Web page. As the hoped-for ten participants did not materialize in March 2018, I have opted to "archive" this page and (the contest, as described below) will continue on in a less-publicized manner. Thank you, current participants - and to those of you who may join us in the future! The aims is ten participants. Here is the plan for this Web page as of now.

Browse the following, if interested.

  2. Send the photograph to: bwosmyfavoritequilt at Bernina World of Sewing dot com

Don't "compress", or whatever, the computer-readable file; just send the original-data from your camera.

Participant: Ailene Pearce, Zebulon NC
Project ID: AKPFQTIO01
Quilt Name: (Un-Named)
Quilt Size: Queen-Bed Size (A bit more than 75" x 98")
Characteristics: Cotton - The triangles on front were matched exactly by the triangles on the back.

Comment: This quilted comforter and shams were done by my mother, Marie McQuain, circa 1980.  Not being a quilter, I’m not sure how this was put together, but it was hand-stitched together on the back.  She also made pieced curtains and quilted table covers to match.

Quilt Name: Slippers
Quilt Size: 75" x 98"
Characteristics: Cotton - Appliqued, embroidered, and quilted with a butterfly design by hand.

Comment: This quilt was done by my mother, Marie McQuain, in 1983, and it was her entry into the O'Neils Quilt Show, O'Neils Department Store, Akron, Ohio.  It is an applique quilt called Slippers, and she appliqued, embroidered, and quilted it with a butterfly design by hand.  The decorative stitching between squares and elsewhere was done by machine.  She received Honorable Mention for this entry, and she told me it was because it was not all done by HAND.  How times have changed. :)

Quilt Name: William Morris’ Lazy Sunday
Quilt Size: 56" x 78"
Characteristics: Cotton, Quilted with Cozy Wool

Comment: This quilt was made using May Chappell's “Lazy Sunday” pattern and was quilted with cozy wool batting.  I love the Arts and Crafts period and used William Morris fabrics to coordinate with my living room rug and furnishings.  When it’s not keeping me warm, I keep it displayed on a rustic old ladder leaning against a wall.  It makes me happy either way!

To get us started, I selected four quilts that I own and are my favorites. I have a difficult time to decide which is my "actual" favorite. I am sure, as the next six weeks go along and I think about the choice more... I may change my initial vote. We see.

Project ID: DJSFQTIO01UnnamedLC
Quilt Name: Un-Named
Quilt Size: 72" x 85"
Characteristics: Log Cabin, Silk

Comment: This piece has been hanging on my living room wall since 1985. The quilt was made in the 1870s and was purchased by Sonja in about 1981. The color change as the day moves along (silk does that, to my eye) and the actual colors are such that I have never gotten "bored" as I view this piece. The quilt may never be moved (again: silk...) -- but, I enjoy it each day: So, why move it?

Quilt Name: My Piece of the Sky
Quilt Size: 34" x 34"
Characteristics: Log Cabin Pineapple, Silk

Comment: Finished in 1986, this was my first quilt gift from Sonja. A special wall-hanging and the characteristic of silk (colors changing as the light changes throughout the day) makes it very special to view. This was one of the first pieces Sonja made that involved 2" Pineapple squares. Am I lucky? Yes. As of now - My favorite quilt that I own. For sure.....

Quilt Name: King Arthur
Quilt Size: 92" x 116"
Characteristics: Ohio Star, Traditional, Cotton

Comment: Finished in 2003. This quilt is special to me, as some of the fabric (such as Liberty Cotton) used was purchased by me during business trips in the 1980s-90s and contributed to Sonja's stash. I love the Ohio Star block and the workmanship is very special.

Quilt Name: Strive
Quilt Size: 70" x 90"
Characteristics: Contemporary, Cotton

Comment: Completed in 2009 as part of our developing the online version of Sonja's "Match Play" class. I used the exercise as we developed the online class material and it was the first (and only...) quilt that I ever made. (Yes, some of the piecing was done by someone else... but, I designed it, did SOME sewing of it and enjoyed doing it).
