Show and tell from Bryce Canyon Quilters Guild Meeting.

After LaRetta finished showing all her fun and beautiful quilts, That Star one has stayed with me and I go back to look at it when I open the blog, we had show and tell.  Crystal wasn't here last month so she had lots of fun stuff to show. First a bag she made at winter retreat.

 Nan sent this quilt to be auctioned off for the hospital fund.  The picture doesn't do it justice I love the colors and fabrics in this one. 
 Sandy said she liked the zig zag quilt that Crystal did so well, she made her own version of it. 

 Shauna finished this Christmas quilt, I love that it is so modern, and she also made the second one here from a panel she got in Alaska.

 Sheri added a little improv to this one, can you see it.  I like the unexpectedness of it.

Pictures from last guild meeting

Our block of the month was the snowball and I have to say I love this block.  I like the way it makes the block seem finished.   look at this snowballs only quilt.  I am in awe.  
 Tonya said this one was quick but I fell in love with it.  I came right home and ordered me some of the table for two fabric and as soon as it gets here I am going to put one together.  
 Our Mystery Quilter this month is Lauretta.  Here she shows her quilt that won peoples choice at Quilt Walk two years ago. 
She and Shannon made these from a pattern in a magazine.  

 This is a recent finish.  Love the quilt blocks on the side of the houses.  

 Another recent finish. 
 She said she made this one just because she wanted to.  That is the great part about quilting. 

 She made this with Shannons help.  Oh my, it is soo adorable.   (gushing because it is really cute)
She said this would be hers as her house is decorated in Americana.

Have you ever joined in a Round Robin Quilt?

In Krisanne's classes you come to class with your blocks already made, to the size and theme that she gives you.  You then share your blocks and put it together with a prearranged pattern.   I noticed that her class is on Thursday so, in theory  if you sew on it during the festival, the top could be finished by Saturday.  I asked for some examples of extreme round robin quilts and this is what she sent.  The theme for the festival is “The Quilting Friends attend the Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival”  I thought it would be hard at first but I looked at these and decided it would be nothing but fun.    Krisanne asked me to tell you that the class will be closed on April 15th if you are thinking of signing up for this one NOW is a good time. 

 Halloween quilt, the kids would look at it for hours. 
 This "State Fair" is my favorite.  I think I even see "Wilber."

 I am writing this on March 20, although It will post later, I thought how appropriate for the first day of spring.  
This is Claudia's that she made at winter retreat.

I love Melissa's patterns and she is going to teach them to us.

Melissa began quilting about 12 years ago when she asked her mother to teach her the basics so she would have something to do in the evenings while her husband was studying for school.  She enjoyed make baby blankets for friends and the occasional large blanket.    In 2010 Melissa discovered the "online" world of quilting and created her quilting blog - Happy Quilting.  And at that point, quilting turned from a hobby, to a passion.
In the last 3 years Melissa has expanded her blog reaching thousands of viewers.  The content includes her daily quilting adventures which are filled with the over 40 free tutorials, guest blogging at other's sites, participating in on-line quilting challenges, hosting Quilt-A-Longs and so on and so on.  She has been published in McCalls and Quiltmaker many times, and has been published in 3 quilting compilation books, Sweet Celebrations, Kitchen Stitches and Modern Baby.  Melissa began publishing her own patterns in 2012 and absolutely loves teaching them!!!  She loves to share her passion of quilting and that passion can be felt by all who attend her classes.  They are filled with upbeat energy, great quilting tips, and all-around good quilting times!
To see more about Melissa and her daily quilting adventures - check out her blog at

Sew night

We didn't have very many to show but the quality made up for it.
This is Jerilu's new quilt. Isn't it a beauty?  It is flannel and she made the triangles from the triangles on a roll.  She said it is easy and awesome stuff.  I have been a little afraid to try them  because I couldn't quite figure it out but I might have to give it a try.
 She said this is from a kit she bought at winter retreat last year.
 She has the best dish towels at the store and she is using this pattern on them.  I don't think you can see it but there are little flowers on this girls dress. 
 Shannon has been working on a wedding gift and it is a work of art.  All done in denim, she has added names and sayings and all good wishes for the special couple.
