August Show and Tell

"Jane Invites Hannah for a Dutch Treat" by Shirley L. Olsen - This quilt was begun as part of the Utah Quilt Guild Dear Jane challenge.  The final stitches were taken in July of 2010. (2 years later). Shirley wanted a bigger quilt than the "Dear Jane" quilt, so she used all of the "Dear Jane" blocks, plus some of the "Dear Hannah" blocks as well as some from "Dutch Treat".  Thus the cute name.  The quilt has both machine and hand quilting.  Most of the pieced blocks were paper-pieced.  The applique is needle-turned.  The quilt is 115" x 115" and looks great on Shirley's King Sized bed.  Go, Shirley!
"Galaxy" by Karen Burt - Karen started this quilt in 1999 with a Linda Brannock pattern.  She finished it after a class taught by Saundry Cindrich this year! Made from her stash! Stars, moons, suns, in both brights and darks.  Stunning!

"Diamond Quilts" by Donna Crawley - Donna made two dorm quilts in a kaleidoscope of bright colors in a diamond pattern.  The diamonds are framed with 1" strips of multicolored fabrics. Her two granddaughters are going away to college and she thought these bright quilts would help cheer them up when school (or boys) were hard. Cute!
"Gold Rush" by Saundra Cindrich - This stunning quilt is made with Batiks - mostly warm colors.  The blocks form an Irish chain in different colors in each block. Wow!

"William Morris Samples" by Saundra Cindrich - This quilt was made with muted colors - in an "M" or "E" design. Great job, Saundra!
"That's the way it's supposed to be" by Linda Roskelly - Linda has done it again - she brings a big, beautiful quilt to show and tell ever month! This quilt is a "scrappy star" quilt that she saw a picture of, then made. It has both machine and hand-quilting and is fabulous!
"Dear Jane Block Exchange" by Diana Hess - A group of quilters that went with Bonnie Miles to see the Jane Stickle quilt decided to do a block exchange.  They all picked out fabric at "Keepsake Quilting" to make sure they had a good variety, then picked a block to do.  They all put them together in their own way - Diana - yours is gorgeous! Gotta love all those tiny 9-patches!
"Spinning Flowers" by Francine Berrett - Francine took Sharon Shamber's flower pattern workshop and whipped this baby out in a week! (You are amazing, Francine).  She used her own method of hand-applique.  It is made with cream, red, gold & has lots of fun, flying geese too.  Quilted by Roberta Boyce.

"Going to Market" by Bonnie Miles - This darling wall hanging was made with leftovers from the Kaffe Fassett quilt. It has lots of baskets with striking black and white striped handles.  This class will be taught in October at Broadbent's. Great job, Bonnie!
"Cinnamon & Ginger" by Bonnie Miles - This great quilt is made from all Kaffe Fassett fabrics - Way out of Bonnie's comfort zone! The label tells all:  "I was introduced to Kaffe Fassett, but we didn't become good friends" (Ha, ha, ha) All centers were appliqued to make the focus circles.
