Canyonlands I: Kokopelli Dances
1994 by Fran Wilson.

Begun in 4-day workshop with Caryl Bryer Fallert at the Museum of the American Quilters Society in Paducah, KY. In the collection of Dr. Margaret E. Wilson,University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha. Kokopelli can be found playing his flute and dancing in the blue section on the right. He was rather a last-minute addition--I accidentally snipped a hole in the top, and he is covering it.


Canyonlands II: Time and the River Flowing
1995 by Fran WilsonThis quilt was juried into the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in 1995, where it won Best Amateur Entry in the InnovativeCategory. It is string-pieced and quilted with metallic thread.


Atlantis
1995 by Fran Wilson
Proudly showing off ribbons at the Jacksonville, FL  Quiltfest. Won second-place, small wall-hanging  and judge's recognition for creative use of fabric.  Made with techniques learned in a class with Katie  Pasquini-Masopust. Was really surprised that this  quilt won, because the machine quilting is done  leaving "danglies" on the front of the quilt, and the judge has a reputation for being conservative and  traditional! (By the way...that's Fran standing next to the quilt and grinning.)


Lake Powell Memories I: Card Trick
1995 by Fran Wilson

Started in a 5-day workshop with Katie Pasquini-Masopust at Quilt/Surface Design Symposium 1995, using her Fractured Landscapes technique. This quilt will appear in her book on Fractured Landscapes that is due out later this year. Technique works great, but is VERY tedius. From a photo taken by me during a week-long houseboat vacation taken with friends several years ago.



Lake Powell Memories II: Rainbow Bridge

1995 by Fran Wilson

Made for friends who also attended the houseboat weekend. Used techniques from Margaret Miller's book, "Strips That Sizzle". Colors reminded me of the week on the lake, plus we played a lot of cards, hence the design. In the collection of David Anderson and Coleen Kubit, Las Vegas, NV
