Fat Quarters Quilts

Fat Quarterites have been finishing quilts. Carol J writes on her blog that she started Thorns and All in a 1998 challenge from Judi B to choose a passage from The War of the Roses, a novel by Warren Adler, as the creative springboard for a quilt. "When I came across it recently, I was happy to see it again and thought it deserved to be quilted." And now it is.

Bettina (honorarily Fat)
has finished a magnificent Jane Austen quilt top.

Bobbi sends a picture of "this quilt which I just (and FINALLY!) finished.  It's a product of the Civil War block exchange group I belonged to in Virginia.  It was sort of based on the Patchwork Divas group in Texas.  The VA group is going to have an exhibit at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival and this is the one they wanted from me."

The Kansas group of Fat Quarterites called the City Sewers did this silk string quilt for an auction to benefit a local AIDS assistance group. The silks are from necktie remnants Merikay got in the Bay area a few years ago.
And Judy S has finished this interpretation of an antique from the collection of the International Quilt Study Center and Museum.
