Description

This original quilt includes historic lighthouses in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

I chose the lighthouses with the most interesting architecture or history.

The small lighthouses in the oval frames are paper pieced, the others are a combination of piecing and appliqué. Many details are achieved with ribbon, satin or straight stitching (or embroidery), and inking. There are many fun details not apparent in the view given here, such as rick-rack for the shark’s teeth, and three-dimensional pennants on the sailboats and the beach sun’s rays.

In addition to the lighthouses, other blocks include seagulls, fish, sailboats, seashells, and a beach scene – complete with sunscreen, soda, sandpipers and a turtle. The outer border is the traditional “Snail’s Trail” block but recolored to look like waves.

Patterns for the quilt are available from Doughty Designs. This was a “block of the month” quilt commissioned by Quakertown Quilts of Texas.

I have been quilting since 1986. I started my own business, Doughty Designs, in 1991 and have been creating commissioned work ever since. My specialty is pictorial quilting, although I have created a broad range of work from bed quilts to wall hangings, postcard size to queen size, traditional to abstract, and wearables. I teach and lecture on various aspects of quilting. From 2006 – 2014 I was Studio Art Quilt Associates’ (SAQA) website coordinator, and regional co-representative for Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina 2002 – 2006. Since 2017, I have been a volunteer docent at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Renwick Gallery.

Fiber art for the wall, decorative objects, and fiber art jewelry. Most pieces are made with my signature “thread sculpture” technique, because fiber art is unique!
