Joan Anderson started this quilt in 2003, during a Saturday class at Stitchin Time. Unfortunately,it was put aside because of health issues. In 2011, she was determined to finish it. Her granddaughter offered design and color tips when she visited and Joan decided to save it for her wedding quilt. Instead, when her granddaughter graduated in 2012, Joan gave it as a graduation present. It was made with two inch squares and half square triangles with machine and needle turn appliqué.

This quilt was created by sixteen women in the Twin Falls United Methodist Church for the 100 Year Centennial celebrated in 2005. It has photos of the stained glass windows in the church as well as photos of the original church built in 1905. In 2005, this quilt won first place ribbon at the Twin Falls County Fair. When not on display at the Twin Falls Public Library, this quilt hands in the Friendship Room at the Methodist Church where church friends meet for coffee after the Sunday service.

This quilt is named âMy Happy Quiltâ because it is bright and cheery. I made this quilt in a class taught by Cathy Reitz at Stitch n’ Time to the Backroom Girls, a monthly group of women who wanted to learn what stitches their sewing machines could do. All the flowers are machine appliquÃ©d using new stitches and techniques and the backgrounds have also been done using decorative stitches. The quilt pattern is called Stitchers Garden. It was pieced by me and machine quilted by Barbara Powers.

This is a story quilt called the Journey of the Corps of Discovery that in a small way recounts the journey of Lewis and Clark as they searched for a continuous water route across the continent. Each block tells something about the things they saw or experienced on their way up the Missouri to its headwaters, across Montana and Idaho where they discovered there was no continuous route. The center block represents their interaction with native Americans without whom they could not have survived especially in Idahos Rocky Mountains. They completed their trip to the Pacific Ocean traveling west on the Columbia River. After a vote by all members of the expedition, York and Sacagawea were included in the vote, they agreed to winter at Fort Clatsop. They returned the next spring carrying flora and fauna they had collected and maps they had made of the territory. The expedition took place from May 14, 1804 to September 23, 1806. I made this quilt 200 years later to commemorate their adventure.
