Joyce Hostetler’s Quilts

Joyce Hostetler  This is a Quilt of Honor made from a center panel by the owner and machine quilted by Ruth Gentry. 
 

Joyce Hostetler   I did the blue work embroidery in this bird quilt over a two-year period then pieced with sashing and a beautiful toille fabric.  I am very fond of toille and use it whenever I can.   My dear friend, Kathy Slater did the lovely machine quilting. 
 

Joyce Hostetler—The blocks in this Christmas quilt were made by members of the Marie Webster Quilt Guild as a National Quilting Day challenge a few years ago.  I was fortunate to win a packet of blocks and my friend, Carolyn Schwartz, then gifted me with the packet she won.  Ruth Gentry did the lovely  all-over meander and this is the happy result. 
 

Joyce Hostetler—This  sampler quilt is  from an on-line  Block –of-the-Month group I belong to.  I love the fabrics and colors which came from my stash.  Zephyr likes the quilt too. 

 


Joyce Hostetler—My friend, Kathy Boxell, and I did a Block-of-the-Month exchange a few years ago.  We both sewed two  blocks of the same design—me in yellows and Kathy in blues.  We then exchanged blocks and we both ended up with twelve yellow and twelve blue blocks.  Ruth Gentry did the lovely machine quilting. 

 


Joyce  Hostetler—I did the hand redwork embroidery on this quilt over several months.  It was beautifully quilted by Kathy Slater.  I really like the toille fabrics used for the  sashing and borders. 
 

Joyce Hostetler—This happy  quilt pattern came from a magazine.  I used  fabric from my stash for the houses and purchased fabric for the 9-patch blocks.  Ruth Gentry quilted it with a heart meander. 
 

Joyce Hostetler   This quilt is titled Sunburst, 36” x 36”, pieced by the owner and machine quilted by my dear friend, Kathy Slater.  It is from the book, Hill and Valley Log Cabins, published by AQS Publishing. 
 

Joyce Hostetler   This is my response to the 2019 Hostetler Sisters’ Challenge.  I wrote a Block-of-the-Month for us and we all used a MODA Layer Cake.  All the quilts are beautiful and all were very different even though we all used the same fabrics.  I love our challenges.   I machine quilted this small quilt. 
 

Joyce Hostetler    This quilt was designed by Marianne Fons and was published in a Love of Quilting Magazine.   It was such fun making these blocks from my stash fabrics.  It was machine quilted by Ruth Gentry and presented to a friend from church as a Quilt of Honor.
