Randy's Reach Composite

Hope you are not superstitious for this composite! It is close to Halloween and there are 13 blocks. We now have 13 members, having recently lost some, but Tricia was too caught up in remodeling and/or construction to make a quilt. I inserted a title banner to come up with 13.   Let’s swing a black cat to dispel the Halloween jinx and here is my explanation of why I put quilts where I did.

Row one: Hands, and the colors blend nicely also.

Row two:  As a photographer I especially enjoyed the full moons we have been seeing this summer so Alice’s quilt gave me the idea for the Material Maven’s title banner. What better place for Kathy’s quilt – front and center.

Row three: Let’s call it “reaching for the stash” row. Clever all!

Row four: You could call this “The Botany” row with a spiral start to end and with humor. I’m still grinning when I look at Carolyn’s “Reach.” We have a 12-foot rolling library ladder in our study. Our 4-year-old grandson likes nothing better than to pull it away from the wall and climb to the top and give his Omie a panic attack.

Friends, another wonderful, creative adventure.


  1. Thanks, as always, Randy! Amazing how wonderfully well all these quilts work together!

  2. Love the way these quilts work together. We seem like minded while still being very diverse. Thanks for your efforts.
    Just finished my comments on the individual quilts. I seem to move slowly these days.

  3. Randy, thank you for the cohesive display and for the magic! It is amazing to see them in a pattern.
    Jane, I just finished the individual comments also, and I am a day behind you. No matter how slowly you move you are still ahead of some of us. at the last reveal I never even made it to the comment section, which I hope you all forgive me. I did view each work, with awe, love, and wonder.

  4. Love this composite and seeing everyone of them grouped together in a cohesive way. Thanks so much Randy!

  5. Thank you Randy, another terrific composite! I look forward with every reveal to see just how you analyze and design the composition. Perfect, yet again!

  6. This is gorgeous Randy. Thanks once again for your creative, meticulous collage of all of our quilts. Keep an eye on that rolling ladder. It sounds like a lot of fun for a youngster!
