March Show 'n Tell

Oh la la!  We had a great selection of show and tells this month.Carol finished her Workshop quilt, remember the applique, reverse applique last year - here it is combined.  When you cut out one leaf for applique, you got the second one in a reverse type.

Carol has also added a "Barn Quilt" to her work shop.  When you get a chance - go take a closer look at it.  I think she said it is called a Farmers Daughter block.

Sara's looking good with her stars Christmas Tree Skirt.  Last year she had it around her Christmas tree unfinished - this coming season it is completely ready to do it's job.  We will have to get a picture of their tree Christmas 2013.

Jane used fabric she had at home to try out the 4-patch posie idea that the "Twins" showed us last month.  Look at those posies!

Jane has been very busy with these next two quilts.  the one below is a BOM completed if I remember correctly.  Both look great.

Sharon is a good friend - she brought in a quilt that Ronda just finished.  Ronda was not able to join the guild this year - but she is keeping busy - we miss YOU.  And.........she now has a long arm.  The stories she will have to tell.  Thank you Sharon for keeping us up to date on our friends.

Tracy finished this military quilt

and this quilt for a friend who is battling cancer.

Tracy brought 2 guests along with her, her mother and this wonderful person that brought 3 vintage quilts to share with us.  The lady worked with her mom to complete tops that had been started by grandmother and maybe a great grandmother.  Thank you ever so much for sharing with the guild.

 I don't think I have seen a butterfly quilt that had the large butterflies in the block and then cornerstones of a smaller version.  Beautiful.
  Vevia finished this one for another grandson's high school graduation this year and the quilt inspired by the library book "Mooshka, A Quilt Story".

Jan doesn't remember which year we did the stars, but she has hers finished now.  Don't you just love the fabric used in the outside border?

 She also finished a quilt that Frances S. had given Jan the blocks for.  Whirling Pinwheels I think it is called.  Jan loves all the fabrics that this quilts showcases.  Jan was hoping that Frances would be visiting so she could see what a lovely quilt it made - so the next time you talk to Frances, let her know to look on line.

  Cindy has been way too busy.  First tiny itsy bitsy beauty and then - a long arm practice dog floor cover wonder.  Cindy - you yourself are a wonder.  Beautiful work.

New baby will be getting this quilt real quick.  Safe trip and take oodles of pictures for us.

 Cindy also finished this lovely quilt.  I want the pattern for this one - it is an eye catcher.  Fair is coming up you know.

Please click on these pictures and make them larger so that you can see the wonderful embroidery work that Lisa does.  Not sure what the quilt was - blurry picture and quick here look and then fold method. 

This one I got a nice shot of.  Lisa has the accu-cut machine (think that is the name) that cuts all of your fabric with a die and then you sew together.  This would have been a long process to cut all of these tumblers.

 Lisa also has done a Farmers daughter quilt.  Sorry I did not get a better shot.

 Deb has done another lovely quilt for the bird people.  They are lucky to know her.

 Susy has finished this lovely counted cross stitch.  Believe her mom did the hand work and then Susy put the top together and quilted.  Ask Susy to make sure.

 Yeah Mark!  You finally are getting your own quilt.  Didn't Susy do an excellent job capturing the greyhounds?

 Susy's favorite kind of quilts are the crazy quilts.  And now that her mom has an embroidery machine, Susy is really getting some lovely ones done.  Mom might get a little carried away, but look at it and you can see that it is worth it.

Juanita is working on a new baby quilt and had to show it to us as by the time it is finished it will be on its way to its new owner before we meet again.  Juanita - remember to take a picture for us.

Karen does such lovely work AND hand quilts them. More than a great job Karen.

 Verna Lee showed us how we can use food packaging cases to store fabric scraps in and since they are see through - you know what you have, and how to store our magazines.  Tracy showed us a mirror, well actually two attached to each other, that you can lay on your fabric and get an idea if it would be good for the 4-patch posie blocks.  She also shared this new book that she has gotten with oodles of patterns for kaleidoscope type quilts.  Thank you to both of you for sharing your info.
