Lillian. Lillian only had quilt tops to show us because as soon as she gets a quilt done she gives it away. Some one asked her how many grandchildren she had and I think she answered 27 and 12 great. She also said she mostly uses fabric she has on hand. Colorful baby quilt. I love the plaid in it.
this is a smaller turning twenty. Someone asked why they call it that. I don't know do you?
One of our favorite red white and black.
this is one like Sandy showed a couple of months ago.
She started this one a few years ago at the Quilt Walk. It was a class that Bonnie Miles taught.
this is going to a teenage granddaughter, I think she said.
My girls and I loved Lamb Chop. Who wouldn't want this one.
Sheree, whose birthday it was and whose sister surprised her with a visit, taught us the stitch she uses to do some of her fantastic needle work. I won't show you my sample but I will show you the things she brought to show what can be done with it.
then Marie taught us the cutest fabric flowers. I had a hard time getting a good shot of them but here is one that she made to put on the aprons she made for the ladies in her church who help with funerals.
More pictures of guild to come. I can't wait to show you our mystery quilter of the month.
Dianne made her version. I am loving the fabric. I wish you could really see the quilting on it also. It is done in Paisley.
Run for Debbie
A teacher at our high school is battling cancer, this is a lady who has made a difference for many students over the years and is greatly appreciated. Anyway on Saturday we had a 3 mile run for her. There were between 300 and 500 runners plus all the volunteers who showed up. Now to some of you this might not sound like a great turn out but there are only about 2500 people in our whole county so when you figure there were people there from almost all of southern Utah it was awesome. After the run they had a firefighter challenge and a mini challenge for the kids and it was quite a morning for our little community.
Here is a picture of my daughter, her friend and my friend.
I took some of my block of the month blocks from two years ago to cut out but didn't even get one done.
Remember the dish towels that Jerilu was working on? She finished them and they are so dang cut I think I might take up embroidery It seems like I wasn't very good at it and ended up only doing cross stitch as that was hard to mess up. The complete set.
this one is my favorite.
Jeri is now working on a wool wall hanging she has it pinned together it is going to be a great.
I happened to see her needle holder and took a picture for you all to enjoy. Yay, spring is coming and with it strawberries.
Becky got her Irish chain. from the class she took from Melissa last winter, back from the quilter. Very pretty.
Then she decided she would learn to applique, she wanted to do it a specific way and I didn't get all that she said she did but she followed these tutorials . There are eight of them altogether. She said she watched them all before she started. This is the result so far. I may have to check the tutorials out.
I am struggling to get the backings together then they will be off. I haven't had anything quilted in quite a while. I am pretty excited. This one is going to my uncle who will be moving to an assisted living home in the spring. It is bittersweet by Benartex fabric.
I know that usually the braids all go the same direction, but when I was laying this out my son said he liked it this way better and so this is the way it went together. I used the Gypsy girl fabric for this.
This next one is all from scraps.
I followed the tutorials on Missouri star quilt co. for all three of these.
