World Quilt

Here is a photo of my husband's first quilt which is now hanging at World Quilt Show in New Hampshire. These are photos that were taken on Maui at Thanksgiving 2010.


  1. Oh I am so glad you posted it. I DEFINITELY saw it and remember it well. I had wondered about the materials used in that I am working on some memory quilts myself. Good for him! Am curious about his journey into quilt making. Would like to tempt my husband :*)

  2. YES...I DO remember this quilt & took photos! I especially loved the use of
    the sheer overlay ( curtain, tablecloth? ) with shells! I thought that a very creative element.

  3. Linda,
    Thanks for letting me know that you saw it. He has been taking photography classes and is interested in artistic photographs. We have been going to quilt shows together and he has his own chair in my studio where he looks at my quilts in progress and makes suggestions. He was trained as an Occupational Therapist and knows how to knit, weave and sew.
    In making the quilt, he told me what his vision was and I helped with each step he needed to do to accomplish that.
    When I went to Empty Spools Seminars this year, the artist in residence was making some photo/memory quilts on sheers and told me the liquid that she used on the sheer to make it accept a photo on an inkjet printer. Of course, we can't find the liquid or remember the name of the product! I know it's in the house somewhere and when we find it I will let you know.

  4. Andrea,
    The sheer overlay with shells is a fabric that he bought from Yardage Town. He shopped for the fabrics by himself and did all the quilting on my longarm machine. We would love to have a copy of your photo of his quilt at the show!

  6. Hi Barbara,
    I'll try again! I thought I could post the photo that I took of your husbands' quilt in this comment section, but I guess that is not possible? I'll will start a new post. However, after going through my photos from the Mancuso
    Show a few times, came to the realization that I did not take one of the whole quilt...just enough to remind me of the sheer shell overlay on top of the photo's. Maybe Linda has more photos?

  7. Well, here is is again and with more information! Thanks to Barbara for the back story, and so happy that Andrea and Linda got to see this quilt!

  8. Thanks for posting this. It is a wonderful piece. I have an opportunity to play with Digital Grounds next month at a Golden workshop given by Houston Area Fiber Artists. I'm glad to see how it can be used
