November Show and Tell

Once Again, our Guild has amazed us!
"Congregation of Purple Poppies" by Margaret Gray - Margaret has the EQ 6 and Kaleidoscope software and she made this beautiful quilt in purples and greens with batiks and hand dyes. This is a paper-pieced project - the software has instructions.

"Sandcastles, Altered" & "Sunbonnet Sue Throw" by Julyn Watkins - Julyn's mom wanted a new bedspread (& curtains) for Christmas, so Julyn has has been working on this all year for her Christmas/birthday gift! This Sandcastles bedspread is beautiful in "Moda - Hartfield" - browns, pinks, tans and plums. The darling throw was made with leftovers and appliqued "Sunbonnet Sues".

"Walking in a Winter Wonderland" & "Bright Diamonds" by Vonda Proctor - The "Winter Wonderland" quilt is a gorgeous study in "Blue Work" and embellished with seed beads. The Diamond quilt was inspired from a forum class by Bonnie Miles. She had purchased a kit previously, because of the colors. After Bonnie's class, she changed the pattern to a diamond one and used the beautiful fabrics from her kit - black, hot pink, lime green & yellow. Wow!

"Butterflies", Harvest of Apples" & "Glowing Windows" by Kendra Hall - Kendra has been very busy finishing things this year! 2 of these stunners were quilted by Kim Peterson and the crystals on "Glowing Windows" are gorgeous! Kendra taught a kaleidoscope class at Quilt Fest this year and these were some of her "samples". The Paula Nadelstern fabrics she used in 2 of them really give them a wow factor!
"Buggy Barn Flowers" by Jean Thornock - This darling Buggy Barn flower pattern looks great in the sunny yellows, pinks, lavenders and greens. For her granddaughter's bunk beds! Way to go, Jean!
"Pumpkins Galore" by Davidene Zimmerman - Wow - this title says it all! 140 different fabrics of fun pumpkins! This is a Becky Morganson Pattern (Pumpkins, Pumpkins). The method was easy - use washable glue to hold down the applique pumpkins, and don't sew it until you are quilting! Super job, Davidene!

"Every Witch Way", "Snowmen in the Window" & "Christmas Trees" by Sarah Weaver - Sarah has completed a darling trio of holiday quilts! The 4 witches' hats are entwined in bright colors - pinks, purples, greens and oranges. The Christmas Trees are so cute in greens, stripes and plaids. The 3 snowmen, looking out the "window" is set on a blue background of stars - just adorable!
"Storm at Sea" by Debby Huber - Debby said this quilt should be named "Quilt of a thousand pieces"! It is a beautiful paper-pieced quilt in blues, whites and reds for her father's 80th birthday. Machine Quilted by Rexine Jensen. It ended up this size because of a mistake in Debby's multiplication - but it's gorgeous!
"BQ Music Quilt" by Pauline Persson - Brown Music Instruments with white music notes. this quilt is for a great grandson that lives in Atlanta, Georgia and takes violin lessons. Quilted by Kim Peterson. Great job, Pauline!
"Hannah's Quilt" by Debbie Robertson - This gorgeous quilt is a photo quilt made with brights and black fabric. Photos are of Debbie's mother-in-law, daughter and niece. Hannah, her niece, is grieving the loss of her grandmother who died in June. It will be her Christmas present.
"Asian Clouds" by Kathy Porter - This stunning quilt was made with leftover Asian fabrics from another quilt Kathy made. It has Asian clouds in the border.
