Shirley Fisher

Shirley Fisher, from Middletown, RI. was on the Cape to attend a quilter's weekend and stopped by to shop and graciously showed us some of her quilts. This one is actually the first quilt she made and she's in the process of hand quilting it for her son.
This lighthouse wallhanging was made to enter a Keepsake Challenge called "Fiction Comes to Life". "The Threadbare Heart", by Jenny Nash, was the inspiration. She was rewarded a runner up prize for it!
This one is her "Foxgloves in My Garden" quilt. It has lots of thread painting on it.
"What Do You Think, Jinny Beyer?" is the title of this one! It took awhile to make. She started it in 1995 and is hand appliqued and hand quilted.
She entered it in a show and received a ribbon for it!
Thank you for sharing these with us!
