I’d like to introduce you to three designers who are new to our pages: Becky Rico, Nancy Messuri, and Susan Deshensky. About seven months ago, we did a call for submissions. I was specifically looking for designers who hadn’t previously been published in Quiltmaker. Their quilts, Bursting with Love, Dream Keeper, and Drunken Flowers, stood out in our lineup meeting.

Harvest Gathering I made a wall hanging using the Harvest Gathering pattern in the November/December '20 issue of Quiltmaker magazine. I was looking for a new project with a Thanksgiving theme. This one touched my heart as it reminded me of this small truck made by my father. We found the completed truck on his table saw when we cleaned up his workshop after he passed away. I have always hosted Thanksgiving dinner for my family and miss him—especially on this day. Carol Cedro • Depew, New York Sweet Starbursts For Christmas, I promised my daughter-in-law a quilt in a theme of her choice. Being a chemist, she chose chemistry, and her favorite symbol is the radiation symbol. So I set out looking for chemistry-themed fabric and a pattern that included a radiation…

A Chain Reaction For most of her career, Nancy Messuri was a professional violinist…which might explain why she loves the precise nature of foundation paper piecing (FPP) so much. Today, Nancy is an Idaho-based quilt designer with a passion for color and more than 30 years of experience. Join us as we get to know Nancy. Rooted in the arts I grew up in Caldwell, Idaho, a small town near Boise. After living in Arizona, Wisconsin, and Texas, I’m back home in Idaho with my husband, Peter Robbins, and our dogs, Tippy and Zak. Our two children are grown and pursuing their dreams: Andria is a psychologist, and Leigh is a certified public accountant (CPA). Peter is also a CPA, but is transitioning to being a full-time Luthier, building beautiful guitars and ukuleles…
