June Show and Tell

“A Child’s Treasure” by Amanda Johnson – This tan and dusty teal quilt was from “I Done My Best”. Amanda started it before her son, Jaxon was born and finished it one month past his second birthday. 5 darling embroidered blocks surrounded by blocks and hand quilted. It is only Amanda’s 2nd pieced quilt and she said it’s a little bumpy around the edges – but her son loves to drive his cars on the bumps. She said it should really be called “A Labor of Love”

“Scrappy Stars” by Amanda Johnson – Another wonderful quilt from Amanda! Black and red stars with a white background. From the book “Toppers by Possibilities”. This one is machine quilted – great job!
“Phunie Phishes” by Shirley Nielson – Shirley finally finished this colorful quilt that she started about 10 years ago in her Knott’s quilt group. Everyone helped each other by making blocks to trade. The ladies made her a fish and it took her this long to decide what to do with it! It is so cute, with the little fisherman guy in his slicker!
“Friendship Stars” by Tricia Tolton – This star and Dresden plate quilt was started because Tricia realized that her department at work needed a new spirit. Most of the ladies either quilted or wanted to learn how to quilt. In January, they met and decided on the colors and had a quick lesson for the beginners. In April, they met back together for a block exchange. This beautiful quilt is the result! She loves the quilt, but loves even more that everyone is closer now! Great idea!
“Fun with Scotty” by Kendra Hall – This is a fun, child’s quilt made in pinks and lavenders. Kendra doesn’t have an embroidery machine, so she got these darling blocks from ebay. The blocks feature little “Sunbonnet Sue’s” with little Scotty dogs. So darling!
“Summer Sampler” by Jacque Thompson – Jacque made these 15 sampler blocks and got tired of making them. So, she put them on point with appliquéd vines separating the rows. Stunning!

“Mariner’s Compass Sampler” by Jacque Thompson – Jacque had fabric leftover and made this gorgeous companion quilt that matches the quilt above. She made the center compass, and then surrounded it with 32 different blocks – Wow!

“ABC Quilt” by Kim Dodds – This cute pastel quilt was made from a kit from The Cotton Shop. It was a very fun and easy quilt to make – darling!
“Dots of Circles” by Kim Dodds – This is a stash-buster pattern from Fon’s & Porter Magazine. Kim loves to come across patterns that let her use up her stash. It was machine pieced and hand quilted. Kim used 2 layers of batting, which was kind of hard to quilt through, but it made a nice and warm quilt for her daughter.
