We are happy to present to you the 2021-2022 opportunity quilt,
Women Make the World a Brighter Place
The quilt measures 76” by 89”. The pattern we used (with permission) was International Sun Bonnet Sue by Debra Kimball, MD.
We are grateful for the many hands that worked on this beautiful quilt. We are planning on entering it in the California State Fair in 2021.
All of the blocks were made using scrap fabrics from Kathy Beard, Lynnda Fair, Lydia Shelton, and Fabienne Dransfield.
The blocks were needle turned hand appliqued by Barbara Davis, Claudine Matulich, JoAnn Lewis, Teresa Lambing, Lynnda Fair, Kathy Beard, Lydia Shelton, and Fabienne Dransfield.
The Belgium block was not part of the pattern. It was designed by Sharon Garsee.
Hand embroidery was done by Sharon Garsee.
The name of the countries were machine embroidered by Jeannie Cheyne.
The piecing was done by Fabienne Dransfield.
The free-motion quilting was done by JoAnn Lewis. JoAnn researched the flower associated with each country and quilted it in its corresponding block. There is a label on the back of the quilt with the name of the flowers.
The binding was done by Teresa Lambing.
