August Guild and Quilt Show Announcement. . .

Excitement is in the air for our upcoming quilt show. 

quiltshowposter 13

This show is the hi-lite of the year for us kennel girls.  If you are in the area,  it’s a ‘must see’ event! 

What could be more beautiful than a backyard full of handmade quilts.

You will find them lining the fence as well as incorporated into fun vignettes.  The luncheon and trunk show are both always fabulous and you will want to bring your pocket books.  Shopping with the vendors is a delight.  This year we will have a wonderful sale of donated surplus items.  I can just imagine the goodies you’ll find there.

The funds earned from the surplus items is going for a wonderful cause.  Catch Rachels Story here:

Mark your calendars and we look forward to seeing you!

Now onto this months meeting.

The meeting was held at Sue’s house and as you can see, she is one of those; “never an idle moment’ kind of gals.  Stitching in hand and busy as usual.


We were all anxious to discuss our upcoming quilt show.

The two sisters, Lynda and Jill.


Janey and Amanda.


“The Queen”, Laurie and Joylyn.


I missed getting a photo of Diana and I but  here she is with her ribbons from the latest Steel Days Quilt Show.

Bragging rights well deserved!


This sweet baby quilt made by Jill will be donated to charity.


And how cute is this one made by Diana for donation also.


Look at this darling truck quilt she made for a grandson.  Sweet dreams are sure to  be had sleeping under this!



I love the colors Joylyn used in her Union Jack Quilt!  You will be getting a better look at all of these at the show.



She also shared this fun star quilt with a snowman border.




Love the minky polka dot back!


Laurie is a lover of all things ‘Halloween’.  How fun is this chevron?  Great  fabrics and bright colors!


This is just a ‘sneak peek’ at what you will see at the quilt show.

Mark your calendars and we’ll see you there!

A Dog-Gone good time for all!

July Quilt Guild. . .Making Plans

Some of the ‘Kennel Girls’ gathered together for another work meeting and to make plans for  our up and coming Quilt Show.

Joylyn, Lynda, Jill, Jann, Sue, Diana, and Amanda.


Before we talked business we had ‘show and tell’

Jill shared this quilt made from such fun colors. 


It’s a great design with the inner white blocks and the flowers scattered randomly here and there.


She also showed us this cute lady bug runner.


I’m just betting that she has been seeing lady bugs in her sleep.  She made 5 of these cute things.


Sue shared this blue and white beauty.  Love it!



Diana shared this fat quarter bundle that she won at the last ‘Shop Hop’.   She only visited one store, Broadbents in Lehi.  How lucky was that to have won?   A few of our ‘Kennel Girls’ work there.  And no, it wasn’t rigged.  lol!


I’d say she’s mighty happy to be a ‘Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner”.


Blocks were turned in that will be made into our charity quilt for the show.


The date has been set for Sept. 6th.  Mark your calendars and plan to spend the day.  It’s such a fun time!  The luncheon is always fabulous and we have a great ‘Four Seasons’ trunk show planned.

Hope to see you there!

Playing Catch up. . .April Guild

Spring is long gone and as you can see I am playing catch up.   Although I don’t have pictures from every month, I do have a couple that I would like to share.

April found the Kennel Girls buzzing with excitement.  It was a work meeting and everyone had been looking forward to spending a few hours together.  Although I was not able to stay, I popped in for a while and then left my camera for the gals to snap a few pics.

Rae Ann was busily setting up.


Doesn’t she look organized?


Sue showed us what a great start she had on her 2’ square blocks.  This is a quilt project we are working on for our ‘2014’ Quilt Show.


I’m not sure which is more ‘happy’, Susann’s smile or her cheery sweater and scarf.


Each month we go through our stash and bring an assortment of 2” squares to share.  Lynda, Jill, and Amanda are gathering theirs.


Lynda had been busy and shared some fun show and tell.




Her and her sister, Jill showed us these darling ‘play’ houses they had made.



It makes you wish you were a little girl again.

Here’s Laurie poking her head out from this beauty she shared.


Now it’s Sue’s turn.  As usual, she has been ever so busy.




For this months demonstration Diana taught a technique called ruching that  she learned from Becky, the owner of Stitches and So Forth, ( Morgansen’s ) Quilt Shop in Payson.





Isn’t it darling?  I love it!

Everyone had a wonderful time working on projects and look forward to the next work meeting!


From the Kennel Girls!

p.s. I mentioned sharing a few recipes in the previous post.  We are holding quild this coming Tuesday and I will get the recipes and will share all three of them in a post.  Sorry that I am so slow.
