My Quip - Tampa Lightning and Mondrian I - Plus 17 More

Good Day,

Tampa Lightning is being prepped for its trip to Kansas. It has been accepted as entry to the Machine Quilters Showcase - MQS at the Overland Convention Center in Overland Park in Kansas. Our Tampa Lightning is our adaptation of Kaffe Fassett’s design, Lightning.

We are working on the completion of the “bevel-quilting” of our Mondrian I. Mondrian I is our design based on works of Piet Mondrian (1872-1944). Mondrian I has been accepted as entry at the Home Machine Quilting Show – HMQS at the South Towne Exposition Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

And we don’t stop there… Not including Tampa Lightning and Mondrian I we have 17 more quilts in line. They are in stages of design, piecing, and quilting. Here’s our list.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual Grid presentation at the bottom of the Quilts SB page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow or in red, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.
