2014 NQA Certified Judge Challenge

Given only the inner dimensions of sky, water and land along with the outer dimensions of 18" - 30" x 30" length, twenty one NQA Certified Judges took on the challenge of creating a continuous coastline.

A wide variety of techniques were employed creating scenes ranging from the eastern Carolina coast to the coasts of California and Oregon. Warm sandy beaches change to northern tree lined lake fronts and then to marshy bird sanctuaries; from realistic sunny days to comedic imaginative thoughts.

Enjoy yourself as you immerse yourself in our journey and it may help you to recall poignant memories of a coastal journey from your own past.

 A Collection of Quilts by Pam Clarke

Pam Clarke, known as a Longarm machine teacher and quilter, started her business in 1988 and has quilted over 7,000 quilts. She also is the developer of Designs with Lines a technique that uses registrations lines for custom free motion quilting.

Pam has been quilting since 1970 and started sewing as a young girl. Her favorite type of quilting is appliqué mixed with piecing to make the quilts appear antique.

My students who have taken classes from me through the years have never seen or realized the type of quilting I do so feel honored to be able to share my quilts with you and hope you all enjoyed them as much as I did creating them.

Quilted in Honor
( Louisville)

Over 50 quilts that have been made in support of the Quilted In Honor project are traveling throughout the United States to help spread the word of the initiative and inspire quilters everywhere to participate!

The exhibit features quilts from celebrity designers including Alex Anderson, Eleanor Burns, Carol Doak, Pat Sloan, Ricky Tims, Angela Walters, Rob Appell and many more.

Quilted In Honor was born from the idea that, by working together, the quilting industry could come together and make a positive impact in the lives of military families in need by raising much-needed funds and by creating and donating quilts.

A percentage of sales from every single Quilted In Honor product sold goes towards benefiting military families through the charitable organization, Operation Homefront.

  Allie Aller Crazy Quilts: New Work
sponsored by Allie Aller / Allie’s In Stitches

An all NEW quilt display for 2014. Allie has combined her crazy quilt work with her deep background in traditional quilting, carrying on her love of fabrics, threads, ribbons, laces, and more out of the box techniques for embellishment...and throughout all, her love of color…by creating quilts that are meant to be functional as well as to hang on the wall.

Machine and handwork combine in these quilts in new ways. Allie is thrilled with her new direction and hope you enjoy it too.
