Successful Quilting Collaborators

Congratulations to Nic Bridges who has, together with Gay, has won third prize in the two person quilt category at the Birmingham Quilt Festival with a fresh looking quilt incorporating a leaf motif and units in various scales.

Nic is the (longarm) FMMQ Queen and has also successfully worked with Lisa Walton on many occasions. My personal favourite Lisa/Nic collaboration is the Power of Three which, as I recall, one first prize in the commercially machine quilted quilt category at the 2004 Sydney Quilt Show:

Other successful quilting collaborations that come to mind are:
  • Kay & Bard Haerland - Kay does the construction but Bard often provides valuable design input including the factually accurate star constellations that feature in one of Kay's owl quilts;
  • Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr - the dynamic duo behind; and
  • Nancy Crow and her handquilters including, in particular, Marla Hattabaugh.
Can you think of any other successful quilting collaborators?

Isn't that the title of a new book? Collaborative Quilting - Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston, I think. Probably a different kind of collaboration, though. This is a beautiful quilt, too.
