March Show and Tell

Karlene Riggs:  Funky Monkeys
This darling quilt is from the guild and will be donated to the 
Ronald McDonald House auction. Thank you Karlene.

Sharon Wright:  Blooming Friends 
Friendship blocks surround a flower garden of beautiful applique flowers.  Blocks are pieced in the Sandcastle pattern by Teri Christopherson. All the floral fabrics were used up on the back.  Another wonderful creation for Sharon.  

Linda Roskelley:  Buckeye Beauty,
This bright and lovely quilt was entirely from scraps.

Julie Saville:  Appliqued Houses 
Appliqued houses and trees with silk ribbon embroidery leaves.  
This quilt was in progress for 1 1/2 years.  WOW!
Fabrics were in a kit, because her stash was mostly dark colors.  This kit was very spring like.  She found the silk ribbon after a long search.  It certainly paid off.

Erin Davenport: Buggy Barn Butterfly
Erin pulled colors from Butterfly fabric.  The original was from Robert Kaufman fabric which she did't like.  Good choice as this quilt was very colorful.  

 Maureen Tuttle: Frosty and Friends
Snowman faces on point; greens browns, creams, rust and burgundy.  Maureen started this quilt about  5 years ago as a take-along project.  It was quilted on her bernina.  It's done.  

Merlyn Hunger:  Cinderrella
This beautiful quilt was featured in June and July 1995 Quilters newsletter Magazine.  It was made at a workshop at the Va. Quilt museum in 1997 and given to the NO. Va. Quilt quild as a silent auction piece.  Baught by a friend for $120.00 and later appraised at $550.00. It was sent to Merlyn on loan about a year ago.  Thank you for sharing this beautiful work of art.  

 Suzanne Hillestad: Safe Haven
A green and brown beauty.  Suzanne's nephew is obsessed with hunting  big deer.   His goal is to pass the hunters safety course to go hunting with his dad.  He has a learning dissability and worked so hard.  He passed and Suzanne made this quilt for him as reward. How loved he must feel to have such a thoughtful aunt.  

Suzanne Hillestad:  Stars and Stripes
Red, white, blue.  Suzanne found this kit at Thimbles and Threads and worked on it to relax after work in January.  It is a Quilt of Valor.  Thank you Suzanne.  

Suzanne Hillested: Through the Seasons
Suzanne  started this as a block of the month and became frustrated with the way it was being done.  It sat on a shelf for too long and she decided to get rid of the quilt,  packaged up what was done and unfinished fabric then donated it to the garage sale for the July Fair.  Francine rescued it. Finished the remaining blocks, set it together and had it quilted.  Suzanne put on the binding in February.  It will be one of the auction quilts at the July Fair this year. 
I'm sure we will all be watching for this one. 

Lynnette Larsen: Bargello
Thia stunning queen size quilt done in orange , turquoise, black and white was made for Lynnette's daughter's birthday.  Lynnette checked a book out of the UVQG library and learned how to do bargello all on her own.

Susie Johnson: Words of Wisdom
Redwork advice given at Susie's daughter's bridal shower.  
It was designed and hand embroidered by Susie.  

 Rebecca Hansen:  Civil War
This wonderful acomplishment was made as a block of the month quilt (a civil war tribute quilt kit). The back (shown below) is made up of civil war battlefields.
