August Show 'n Tell

Three cheers for our youngest guild member - HAYLEY !!!  Forgive me for being too slow to capture the block she is mailing to the Kansas State Fair to celebrate their 100th year - hint hint - mom or grandmom - would you please get us a good shot.  Thank you.
 Hayley did very well with her hand work at this years Clay Center Free Fair.  She took a blue for her embroidered farm towel and a Reserve Champion for her crayon/twilling/embroidery flower.  Keep up the excellent work Hayley.
 Mom also took honors at the fair with her recycled purse.  Sara is sending the Dresdan shown to the State Fair and showed us a quilt that she had practiced her hand quilting on and later tore out.  Keep practicing Sara - personally I think you were doing a great job.
 Jane loved the "H" block and came up with a very handsome quilt to donate to our community service project this year.  The colors really make the design stand out.
 Jan belongs to a group that does up Christmas gifts for each other - this year her friendship star quilt will be much sought after.  Love the look she developed with her color placement.
 Leila was surprised to hear from Verna Lee that a woman in the Carolina's was looking for the Triple Wedding Ring pattern.  Leila thinks this was a pattern of her mothers, date on the pattern says 1976.
 A woman had gone into a quilt shop in Carolina and asked for the pattern of a quilt that she saw displayed in an article of our Library Quilt Show.  Shop owner had never heard of the pattern, from the article on our web site she got hold of our president, president called Leila and now Leila's pattern will be on the east coast.  Wow - Piotique Quilters Guild may some day be seen world round.
 Verna Lee had gotten a lovely panel, had Susie quilt it and now comes time for the binding and some embellishment with a new tool that she picked up on our last trip to Des Moines.  Looking forward to seeing the finished wall hanging.  It will be presented during Verna Lee's churches' Mexican supper this year.  Not sure if that is auction or opportunities..........we'll have to check that out.
 Carol has been busy and having fun doing her 100th birthday block for the State Fair.  She also did quite a few of the blocks for the Quilts of Valor 10th anniversary.  One of those shown is Cindy's.
 Carol B's husband has not been wasting his summer.  One of the quilt ladders is for Lisa, the other one along with the quilt rack is for sale.  Great work Mr. B.
It is always such a treat when visitors bring along their show 'n tell.  Forgive me - but I missed who's guest she was - but I did not miss the fantastic purse nor the billfold.  Great job and thank you for sharing.
