Two Love

we need love 25"x25"

While I was piecing the quilt below, I was inspired to make the quilt above. Funny how that happens.

her name was heather heyer 35"x35"

I needed the extra time to think about how I wanted to quilt this one. In the machine quilting I wrote-

love thy neighbor
family  friend
enemy  you  them
we are one

Around the wording I tried to quilt the breeze/spirit. It looks better in some places than others.
This quilt was accepted into the Subversive/Domestic Textile Arts exhibit at the Shenandoah Valley Art Center in Waynesboro, Virginia. The exhibit runs from December 9 to January 20.
Here are some detailed views. Click to enlarge.

When I first posted about this quilt I asked others to join me in making a Love Thy Neighbor quilt. Jane O. talks about hers in this post.  Please let me know if you also have one to share.


  1. I love how you quilted the house quilt. Hugs

  2. Two quilts with such a timely message. I really like the way you worked words into the quilting of the second one. I haven't quilted mine yet. I wonder what I can do along those lines?
    Subversive/Domestic Textile Arts? That is quite a handle! What are the requirements for entering that show?

  3. Hello Maureen,

    I love the quilts and most certainly also the message added on the quilt. Great!

    Dutch greetings, Carolien

  4. That is wonderful! Love the words quilted in.

  5. Congrats on your quilt entry! Creative way of quilting it!
