Oh what a gorgeous day to have our quilt guild meeting in
It really made me miss our annual outdoor Dog Kennel Quilt Show that we use to have every August.
We ended up having a good attendence:
Laurie, Susann, Jill, Sue, Lynda, Janey, Kris, Joylyn, Sydney, Jann, Marilyn, and Rae Ann.
Nancy, our president; conducted our meeting.
We have been doing a 10" block exchange of red and white fabrics. June will be our last month for this. In December we will share the quilts we made from the blocks. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
Show and Tell:
Kris is our stripper. :) She loves stripping quilts and makes some amazing ones. Look at this ombre beauty!
I have been a busy bee trying to finish some unfinished projects.
I started this wool bee skep sampler last year. I put it away and just got it back out and finished it. Oh happy day!
I also made a small bee themed table topper.
This month we were asked by Nancy to bring a quilt that connects you to a family member (s).
Jill shared this fun quilt made for her by her clogging family.
Laurie shared a discovered quilt made by a Great Aunt.
Kris shared this beauty gifted to her for Mother's Day in '2003'. It was made by her daughter who would have been 23 at the time.
Joylyn's quilt was a wedding gift from her mother in law. It is hand quilted and as requested by her son, she gave it double batting.
My quilt is a rail made from a flannel exchange we had in our guild years ago. I gifted it to my husband one Christmas.
RaeAnn's mother loved Lilacs. She made her this gorgeous quilt with that special memory in mind.
She also gave her a vase full of Lilacs. Imagine her
The label is so sweet!
I love Americana quilts. Nancy made this in honor of all of her family members that have served our country.
Her dad, bother, grandfathers, every Patton.
The label reads: To those who protect. I missed getting a close up.
Nancy and her daughter, Emily watch Wheel of Fortune together every day at 4. This fun colorful quilt is used for that mother/daughter bonding time.
