Scrappy Kaffe  (77.5″ x 69″)
Pieced by Sue Hickman      Berryville, VA     1/2013

I have long delighted in the bright, bold, beautiful fabrics of Kaffe Fassett, but it wasn’t until the fall of 2012, while traveling with my husband to the Virginia Wood Turners Convention, that I found such a spectacular collection of Kaffe Fassett fabrics I could no longer resist selecting a dozen “fat quarters” for myself.  These didn’t remain long in my “stash”. I was inspired to cut four squares from each of the twelve fat quarters I had bought and I “snowballed” the corners. They became the focused blocks in this piece. The diagonals are created from blocks I created using fabrics I found in a pack containing 5″ pieces of a variety of Kaffe Fassett fabrics. The yellow background fabric tied this piece
all together.

This quilt was shown in the 2013 Quilter’s Unlimited 40th Anniversary Quilt Show at the Dulles Expo Center.

Shuffling Hexagons (54.75″ x 52.75″)
Pieced by Sue Hickman finished with long-arm quilting.     Berryville, Va     8/2014

This nearly square quilt contains rectangles and pentagons that resulted from the shuffling of hexagons. Quilted circles and ovals soften the angularity of the modern piecing.

This quilt showed at the 2015 Northern Shenandoah Valley Quilt Show in Berryville, Va and earned the Viewer’s Choice 2nd Place award in the Modern Quilt Category.

Kaleidoscoped Tree of Life (55″ x 40″)
Designed, pieced, embellished, and quilted by Sue Hickman     Berryville, VA     5/2017

In this piece I combined kaleidoscoped hexagon blocks from a Chong-A Hwang fabric with the complementary  Tree of Life panel expanding the tree’s design. Fussy cut unused hexagon blocks were appliqued to fill out the design and softened the edges of the panel. Curving the lower corners and using two fabrics in the binding finish this quilt.

Enjoying Wildflowers Along the Way (66″ x 53″)

Pieced by Sue Hickman and finished with long-arm machine quilting.  7/2016

This lap or large wall quilt began with a beautiful wildflower batik fabric found this spring while on vacation in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I loved the colors and the unique design repeated throughout the fabric. Once home, I fussy-cut each focus flower and considered how I would lay them out to highlight these beautiful squares. Simple ‘rails’ of two coordinating fabric with some plain green squares and a border completed the design.

Blue Ridge – Outback the Shenandoah  (90″ x 68″)

I adapted this pattern (called Outback) to include pieces depicting the flow of the river above and below pieces depicting the blue ridges and green valley in an attempt to capture the beauty of our valley with the lush green plants and trees, cool waters of the Shenandoah Rover, and our majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Though large as a wall hanging, it makes a beautiful “cuddle under” lap quilt or can be used with a twin bed, even one that is extra-long.

Retail Therapy  (56.5″ Sq)

I’m not really a “shopper”.  I’m not one to enjoy browsing at the “mall”… but when feeling overwhelmed with numerous life challenges over which I had no control I couldn’t resist a spur of the moment stop in one of my favorite local quilt shops where I found these cheerful, fun fabrics perfect for a pattern I’d been meaning to make for years. Ta da… and, yes, completing the process did make me feel much better.  🙂
