Inspired by the fabrics, I adapted this pattern (called Shenandoah, by Deanna Moore of Creative Sewlutions) 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 River, and the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains.

Included in Clarke’s Great Outdoors book, benefiting The Piedmont Environmental Council, released in October, 2018.

Enjoying Wildflowers Along the Way (66″ x 53″)
Designed and pieced by Sue Hickman and finished with long-arm 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.

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.  🙂

This lap or large wall quilt was pieced by Sue Hickman and finished with long-arm quilting.  9/2014

Pieced and mid-arm quilted by Sue Hickman     Berryville, VA     9/2018

When I saw these fabrics I knew I had to make this patriotic quilt! In the process, I made a few changes to the Land of Liberty pattern by Artly and Wilmington Prints.
As a generous lap quilt or a wall hanging, its message speaks loud and clear.
