Scarlett's Quilt Gallery 2
Revised September 14, 2013
Here are more pictures of Scarlett's quilt projects. Please be patient as the pictures load.
Symbols & Seasons of Japan
Finished in July 2001 - 40" square
A paperpieced leaf background from Scarlett's Autumn Splendor pattern (see below) with three dimensional kimonos (about Barbie doll sized) that are completely machine embroidered. Silk flowers and beads were added, too. This quilt won an Honorable Mention in the Best Use of Amazing Designs category of the 2001 Sulky Challenge.
90" x 90"
The pattern for this quilt is called Autumn
This is a scrap quilt with no two leaves the same. At one time back in the late 1980s, Scarlett had considered selling this quilt, but no one wanted to pay $300 for it. Now she has redone this design and there's a pattern available for it! To see two other versions of this design, please visit the Autumn Splendor Gallery. This original quilt has a prairie point border, using assorted black prints.
A Price for Freedom
49" x 59"
This wallhanging was made because of the Gulf War. Scarlett had friends and other people she knew about who were in the military during this time. Scarlett is patriotic, but also realistic about the costs of war in terms of lives changed and lost. This wallhanging was recently displayed at the "A July Quilt Spectacular!" patriotic quilt exhibit held at KIXE - Channel 9 studio in Redding, California during July, 2002.
Starbright was made for a quilt challenge by Quilt World magazine. It won an honorable mention and the pattern was published in a special issue with all the contest winners.
To Each Her Own Log Cabin
89" x 88"
This quilt is a Friendship quilt that Scarlett made using blocks that she received at a quilting retreat. As you can see, everyone's idea of color was different and they didn't want to make all the same kind of log cabin block. Scarlett used Margaret Miller's book "Blockbuster Quilts" as my source of inspiration. It was a struggle to get all the blocks to work and she had to make a couple more blocks to finish the top.
All Parts of A Whole
31" x 31"
This wallhanging was an experiment in putting blocks of different sizes together. They overlap and share common pattern pieces. It gives an illusion of blocks laying on top of each other. The flowers are sewn on, they're silk flowers that give the quilt a three dimensional quality. The vines are appliqued. This wallhanging was donated to KIXE - Channel 9 in Redding, CA for their Art Auction in April 2002. It did well and raised some much-needed money for Scarlett's local PBS station.
Legacy: Somehow It All Fits Together was Scarlett's experiment in trying to make two traditional quilt patterns fit together. She added the ivy leaves to jazz it up. Some are stenciled on and some are silk ivy leaves that Scarlett glued and sewed onto the background. This wallhanging was sold at a quilt auction at the Quilter's Sew-Ciety of Redding quilt show and is owned by Janice Phelps.
