for updates and pictures on guild happenings.

Program: Diane Bobzien and her quilts and style

Prepare yourself for a wonder of quilts.  Diane gathered up what she could find and we now know that this lady likes all styles and has a fantastic attitude about her work.  She had us in stitches and awe of all she had brought.
Carol introduced Diane on the left and her daughter Cheryl on the right.
The six quilts shown here on top of the hidden treasurers is what happened when Diane got to thinking what if?

She picked three fabrics, made 9 patches switching her three fabrics from center, to inside to corners and then did the disappearing part of cutting horizontal and vertical, swing two opposite corners around and - yikes what different looks.  

Now that Diane has done all the work, take a real good look at the picture here and you can pick out which way you would like to make yours.  Totally fun.

Diane had bought the border fabric and thought - why?  But after hunting through her and her mother's stash, she came up with colors to do 16 patches and now she loves it.  

This is another of Diane's favorites and it was so simple.

And of course don't forget the panels that you can cut up and make into a work of art.

Following is the rest of Diane's work, not all made it to the camera or were blurred, but there is a good representation of what was given in her trunk show.  Enjoy.

Below is the back of the quilt above, it shows the construction of what each of the little blocks is made of.  What a great way to remember where the block starts and stops.

Okay - have to talk about this quilt above.  Diane got us all to oohing and ahhing the work done in this and all the great points - then told us it was a cheater, all she did was quilt it.  Surprise!

Diane likes the friendship star in its simplicity.  Not as busy as some stars.

This is a quilt done for Cheryl - it is cat fabric used in the shadow box pattern.

The top left of this picture is a small quilt with 12 blocks that Diane got off of  Temecula Quilt Co's blog.  Click on the underlined , then click on Blog (top right), then scroll down on the right side till you come to the section that says Quilt With Us - there you will see a free - 12 Days of Christmas.  Click on that and get your own pattern.  Lots of other interesting things to look at and you can even sign up to get notification of new blog posts.

Don't you just love this one.  Simple framed boxes and then because it was too boxy, Diane put a small black piece of fabric to the corners, now it really stands out.

Diane has 3 sisters, this quilt includes pj fabrics from mom's stash for all of them.

One of the best parts of Diane's show - was her.  You had to be there to enjoy her presentation to the fullest - she is quite some lady.  Thank you Diane for a great show.  Thank you Cheryl for coming and helping out your mom.

And thank you to the many guild members that assisted the ladies in refolding and packing up the quilts.  
We have such an awesome group of people in our guild.

We should all be proud to be a part of this group.
