Wind up Supper/Guild meeting May 2, 2017

 

A delicious supper was prepared for us by Donna and her Mom.  These ladies prepared a feast that we are still drooling over.  No one went home hungry.  Our only hope is that they repeat their performance another time!!!!

Bonnie started off the Show n Tell with a Canadian theme quilt.  Each province was represented.  The wonky setting almost sent Bonnie wonky but she did a fabulous job!

Leeanne shows us a denim rag quilt in its final stages.  It will be a grad gift so it won’t be around for the September meeting.  Nice how she incorporated so many memories for this lucky young lady.

Another entry from the online challenge that Brenda has been participating in this year.  The theme this month was “Trash”.  Brenda shares her knowledge of Shakespeare’s writing as full of trash.  She wrote the trashy excepts from his work with free motion quilting.  She felt it was similar to Shakespeare trying to use a quill pen….not always the easiest thing to do!

Eva loves to embroider and she incorporates it into her quilts.  Lovely!

Eva also created some great pieced quilts as well.  Busy lady!

Not sure who the creator of this quilt is because they are doing such a good job of hiding behind it! Very striking colours!

This may be the phantom quilter.  Charlene explains how slick the Accuquilt cutter worked to make this denim cathedral windows rag quilt.

Marg has been busy too with banner quilts for Spring and a two fabric bargello.

Esther went to Duck Lake to learn to paper piece the Judy Niemeyer way.  Love her designs and Mami’s Country Quilt Store is on every quilter’s bucket list!!!

Leeann has a top put together from the back cupboard.  This is the first one done for the cupboard challenge.  Don’t panic if you haven’t started yours yet….we have until December 2017.

Adeline shows a very nice 3D wreath.  I think this looks challenging?????

Dorothy showed us this darling denim quilt.  She used tiny magazine figures to inspire her to use them on this quilt. Very special!

Vera finishes Show n Tell with a very compact bag that comes in handy when traveling.  Enough room for a cell phone and wallet! If you are heading to a quilt shop forget the cell phone.  You don’t want to be disturbed 🙂

 

This brings our guild meetings to an end until September.  See you in the fall!
