FEBRUARY SHOW 'n TELL
Wow, Wow, Wow! Don't know about you - but I just love Show 'n Tell. Karen's Monkey Wrench or Barn Door is fantastic.
And Amy's - she might think she did not do as great of a job as she wanted to with her new Tin Lizzie - but we think otherwise.
Susie is hiding behind the next two. She put them together, quilted them and then handed them off to Iowana to put the binding on - both were donated to the Community Service Project for this year - Cancer and dialyses patients (hope I spelled that correctly).
Audrey had a look but don't touch to part of her show and tell - the lady STILL has the books she loved as a seven year old - and they looked in great condition. What excited Audrey was that Hancock F. came out with fabric that was taken from the art work of books like hers. She ordered it right up and had a quilt to show off. She was very fortunate to get the fabric - she has never seen it since. Thank you so much for sharing both of these treasures with us Audrey.
Deb has a family member that has not learned how to be tactful yet, would you believe that they said this was an ugly purse? hahahahah It is a great bag and when you run out of fabric and have to improvise, sometimes you get another look entirely.
Deb added fabric to the top and bottom of this panel and now has a quilt for the Comm. Serv. project.
This item Deb finished for a graduate coming up. It was started as a quilt as you go with only a couple of panels done - lucky graduate to have something made by two people that love them.
Behind this darling "Sunbonnet Kitty" stands Cindy. Her daughter Kristie made it for her sister Kelsey for her 10th birthday. It is a darling wall hanging and will be shown at the Library.
Kelsey continues on the tradition in her family and made this doll quilt when she was 11 years old. She even won Grand Champion in the Jr. Division.
Cindy helped Kelsey make this - Kelsey's first quilt - in 2002. Classmates, school faculty, parents, siblings and Sunday School teacher and piano teacher all signed the hearts that Kelsy fused and ironed on.
Cindy made this one for her son Shane in 1998. Cindy brought in all of these quilts for the Library's Winter Reading Program quilt show.
Tracy showed us what she can do with donated material - whether cotton fabric or not. Great job Tracy.
Carol B is changing a girly look to a boy look - she made covers for the head and foot boards of a crib that is now transforming into a juvey bed. What a great idea.
Ruth visited us last night and brought in her sunflower challenge quilt to show off. If I got the story correct - she was up against Mennonite guild members, everyone had to use the sunflower fabric and Ruth was a little hurt when did not win. I am with you Ruth, I think you should have won at least viewers choice - it is lovely, and I am sorry, I do not see any egg shaped circles.
Thank you members for your wonderful displays.
