Helen McMahon remembers how things were and has made drawings of early Woodinville that have resulted in a popular coloring book. The book in turn served as the inspiration for a special Coloring Book Quilt.

“The Woodinville area has a colorful past and a promising future. I have put together some drawings to help tell this story,” explained McMahon.

Special thanks to:

Julie Forrest who helped take on the quilt project and see it through to completion.

Mary Kreider for making the fisherman and the fire department.

Pam Seaberg made the four corner batik flowers. Pam is a rising star with two Hoffman Challenge quilts.

Marianne Gertula made the bear and the canoe. She’s an accomplished landscape quilter and artist.

Bee Doll Shephard made the slough with the kids on the bike.

Tina Sutherland made the cows.

Liz O’Neil made the hot air balloons.

Jeanne and Carla Hoggarth made the bronze marker and the cedar logs.

Jean Ferries made the Memorial Meade.

Sandy Skeel loved the cedar logs. Her dad owned Plywood Supply in Kenmore and she really wanted to do this block.

Marlene and Jeanette Schurr, the sisters, made the Hollywood Schoolhouse and Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery blocks.

Julie Forrest for taking on this quilt with us and seeing it through to completion.

Laurie Gustafson did the machine quilting.

The quilt will travel on display for one year throughout Woodinville until it is ultimately donated to the Woodinville Heritage Society.

Gathering Fabric Quilt Shop was a proud sponsor of this community effort.

A reception for McMahon at the shop is planned for this fall.
