Linda Taylor mixes freehand quilting and computerized designs to complete a Radiant Star quilt. She hand guides continuous curves and geometric meandering to create a simple design with lots of texture. This completes the complex computerized designs she creates by combining patterns in CreativeStudio 7.1.

Bonnie Sheppard
St. Charles, Missouri
 
After first inspiring her quilting hobby more than 35 years ago, Bonnie Sheppard is now honoring her sister Robin’s memory through quilting and support of the Down Syndrome Association.

“Looking for a new hobby in the winter of 1982, I took a hand-quilting class,” Bonnie said. “The resulting project was an Ohio Star full-size bed quilt all hand sewn. My little sister loved it and wanted one for her bed. Anything for Robin.”

That first quilt was an orange Friendship Star they hand-tied. Bonnie quilted sporadically through the years, but when she retired from teaching 30 years later, her husband purchased a Gammill for her.

“Before I could get too involved (in quilting), Robin came to live with us,” she said. “Taking care of her became a full-time job. I made Robin a quilt for her new bed with her choice of colors – orange and pinks.” Click here to continue reading.
