Member’s Showcase: Sue Bishop

Sue joined our guild this year, but has quilted and created most of her life. Monday, she shared with us some of her gorgeous work.

Since pictures are worth a thousand words, let’s get right to them!

A Witchy Wall Hanging – If you think you have a bad hair day… take a closer look at the “Topsy Turvy Witches’ tablerunner. By Happy Hollow Designs.

One of her favorite quilts, she made trying to use up her Halloween scraps left from other Halloween projects. The quilt is reversible – meaning the back is another complete quilt. And she still has more scraps!  “I LOVE Halloween!” she tells us. We believe her.

Sue explains, “My very first pieced quilt (1998), using a Kenmore machine, paper templates, and scissors to cut it out.  Boy, how things have changed!!  It was beautifully hand-quilted by Pauline Stewart – a family friend.”

2010 WV Mountain Quest Quilt.

“We visited 12 quilt stores to get the patterns… a fun road trip with my sister & friends! I put red in one square in each row. My dad was a coal miner so that was one.  I did white water rafting down the New River Gorge. Two summers ago I also did zip lining. The other two were the church and cardinal. I made 3 of these quilts: one for me, my mom & my brother”

Thank you, Sue for sharing your work with us!
