March 7, 2019 Guild Meeting and Show & Tell

This beauty in blue will go into our guild donation quilts.

Pat worked hard on this cute piece. It will be a gift for her sister.

This is still a work in progress for Beth,
needs to be sandwiched and quilted.

Leanna is being hopeful that winter is over with this cute mug rug.

Leanna finished her stack and whack and
made a very unique back for it.

Shalane wasn't sure she liked this quilt when
she pieced the blocks,
but has now fell in love with it after it's quilted together.

That's Amy peeking out from the Star Wars quilt.

Amy let Night Owl Quilting have fun with a
free motion feather design on this beauty of a quilt.
Nice bright backing for it too.

Genny made this little snowball quilt for a baby gift
 and saved all the half square triangles
and  put them together to make a neat table runner.

Lori completed this UFO and has generously donated
the quilt to use as a guild donation quilt.

February 7, 2019 Guild meeting and Show & Tell

Jacquie finished this beautiful quilt she started a number of months ago at a retreat weekend.
She had the quilt basted by Lori at Night Owl Quilting and then finished the quilting on her
home sewing machine..

Chris is a new guild member and is getting reacquainted with her sewing machine
 by creating small projects.

Reneta made this darling bunny quilt for a special little one in Australia.

Shalane had this piece quilted by her friend that just recently
purchased a long arm and wanted a piece to practice on. It turned out great.
She also finished a Halloween piece and made a quilt binding kit.

Lori & Reneta finished this piece.  The fabric strips were leftover donated pieces from
making our dignity quilt. Reneta sewed it together like a jelly roll race and they then chose this unique way to cut & piece together. It will be a donation quilt for the guild to use.

This is the newest pattern released by Highway10Designs "Simply Dashing"

Ernestine has been busy finishing many projects. The quilt on the left below is quilting by hand the other ones she did on her machine.

Karen's piece was a round robin project she took part in with the Gilbert Plains Quilt Guild.
I didn't get an upclose picture but the quilting is very detailed.

Beth keeps busy with many projects, here she has a bag full of quilted baskets and the picture below is still a work in progress, needing to be sandwiched and quilted..

Genny made this baby quilt from a fabric panel, cutting the pieces apart
and adding sashing and simple quilting.

Gloria finished up a mat project she took at a workshop.
It's made by sewing channels on the fabric then stringing in cotton
close line cording. She used magic binding to add a little flare.

Guild Project

Guild Member Lorraine brought a project suggestion to our membership,
which isn't totally quilting related, but a very excellent cause. All were in agreement.
She approached a service group in our community for funding and with the help of a few other
hardworking members has put the project into action.

Days for Girls International

Around the world, girls and women resort to using rags, mattress stuffing,
banana leaves, feathers, and even cow dung to manage their menstruation.
Days for Girls provides a safe, beautiful, washable, and long-lasting alternative — 
along with vital health education.

February 7, 2019 was one of the days when members came together to 
work on the products required for the packages.

Happy New Year! January 10, 2019 Guild meeting and Show & Tell

Sherri made a couple of rock candy table toppers.

Small quilt made using the hunter star ruler. Can't see it in the picture
but it has a cute snowman border.

Sometimes we share other fun crafts we've created, like this cute bunny made for a grandchild.

Dawn created this beautiful quilt depicting her grandmother, and below
finished up a table runner started long ago.

Gloria was doodling with some thread painting and turned her piece art into a pillow.

This pineapple block quilt was made with scrap from the guild closet and will be a donation quilt.

Reneta made this cute baby quilt from leftovers from another project from years ago.

Reneta's pictures are all beautiful quilted gifts she received from a birthday swap.

Lori was working on a new pattern and it didn't come together as she hoped, but it is darling quilt she donated it for the guild to use for a donation quilt.

Our guild chose to have a late Christmas Party and celebrate the new year as well.  We had fun doing a fat quarter exchange (which Cindy is getting us ready for) and a small quilted item gift exchange and ate many wonderful treats.
