Kaleidoscope Twist by Birgit Schuller
"In 2004 this quilt started out as my contribution for an exhibit with the theme "red".  this led to the somewhat ambitious idea of making a quilt that combined flying geese blocks in a NYB-style setting with kaleidoscopic hexagons that showed off that gorgeously beautiful red paisley fabric I had found in some online store.  All in all the making of this quilt was a process that stretched over several years.  And, yes, I felt some relief when I put the last hand stitches on the binding in Mid-2006!"

Bristol Stars by Judy Mathieson
"The basic format was inspired by a Victorian marble floor in the Bristol Cathedral in England.  I have added changing colors, flying geese that circle the center, expanding checerboards, corner stars as well as elaborate stars that fill the 20 outer circles.  The center star was inspired by designs from Costa Rican cartwheels."
Hand and machine quilted by the maker.
