February Guild

February will soon be behind us and the kennel girls will be welcoming spring!
I do very little quilting during the spring and summer.   I have a quilt to sew for a grandsons upcoming wedding and we have a retreat scheduled in May.  Hopefully that will help me get it done!
Our meeting was held at our President, Rae Ann's lovely home.  Always a delight to see her seasonal décor!
Look at this gorgeous Valentines quilt she had on her quilt rack.
And here she is showing us the entire quilt.  It's a beauty!
In attendance was:  Lynda, Cheryl, and Sue.
Amanda and Janey.


and Marilyn.  Also me, but no photo.  :)

Nancy shared some darling Valentines bags with us and a quick way to add a zipper.
After business we had show and tell.  Amanda shared her fabulous wool sheep topper.

Lots of details in this!
Lynda is having a 'get er done' kind of year.  She is finishing up all kinds of projects!
(I desperately need to follow in her footsteps)
She painted the frame red for this sweet Valentines cross stitch.

Getting all of this done isn't just luck.  lol!  Takes lots of hard work and talent.  Something she has plenty of!!

She has had this started for a number of years.  Finished in time for Valentines.

Fun little stitched blocks are mixed throughout.

Another sweet Valentine's one she has had for a couple of years.
They all were darling, but this one has to be my favorite.  It is simply gorgeous!!

The garden images had all of us oohing and ahhing!

Her embroidery work is just stunning!
Love the fun pattern and fabrics Sue used on this quilt.

Another beauty by Sue.  She amazes me at all she gets done!

Janey has been busy stitching up a storm.  She does beautiful work as well!

Nancy was one of the original 'kennel girls'.  It was her kennel where our meetings were held that dubbed us as the 'Dog Kennel Quilt Guild'.  She has returned after living in Boston for a number of years.  We're so happy to have her back!!
A stunning nine patch!

She is an amazing lady!

She shared two cute toppers.  We all loved them so much that we persuaded her to teach them at our next 'Doggy Treat' class.

 I adore how whimsical they are.
This quilt holds a special place in her heart.  She made it shortly after moving to Boston and leaving her long time home here in Highland.
It's called "Good Bye 10453".
It hi-lites the gorgeous gardens and out buildings that she had at her home here in Utah.
This is the famous dog kennel.
Lots of love, laughter, and quilting went on inside there.

Look at these amazing blocks made by Rae Ann.  Talent abounds in this group!  Wonder why they let me in?  hee-hee!

What a wonderful meeting we had and I look forward to sharing our upcoming field trip to Delta with you!
Happy Quilting,
the Kennel Girls
