November Show and Tell

Bonnie Miles displayed wool quilts, as the theme of our meeting was ‘working with wool’.  “Star of the Desert” was made from recycled woolens obtained from Deseret Industries.  
  “Fitzgerald’s Trail” is a ‘snails trail’ pattern made from wool plaids in honor of her Scottish heritage.

Machelle Preston showed a “Lone Star” quilt that she made at Cherry Tree Cottage.  This quilt features colors that her husband loves—rust, blue, and maize. 

Saundra Cindrich completed two quilts.  The “Basket Quilt” was made using Kaffe Fassett fabrics in rich colors. 
“Parcheesi” is a black and white quilt with brights for pizzazz!  She will be teaching these at the Bryce Canyon retreat.

 Barb Murdock brought two flannel quilts made from charm squares.  One was done in a peach/green/cream combination...
 and the other quilt was mulberry and maize.

Linda Roskelley completed a “Christmas” quilt for her granddaughter for Christmas.  It is made from a Nancy Halverson pattern and panel.

Vonda Proctor showed two quilts.  “Lone Star” is made with rusts and greens.  The star is surrounded by beautiful appliqué.
 “Turn Your Heart” is a family history quilt done in tan and rose.  This quilt was displayed in the Winter Quarters Trail Visitors Center while her daughter was serving a mission there.

Merlene Crapo made a “Tool Quilt” for her husband’s 70th birthday!  She used a panel and added appliqué.  The back of the quilt is a variety of ‘tool’ themed fabrics.  He is a wood turner, so the quilt is very ‘fitting’! 

Michelle Hansen displayed “Great Grandma’s Dash”.  The blocks were made by her great grandma.  One of the blocks was made by hand, the rest by machine.  None of them were the same size, and all were from recycled fabrics or scraps.  Michelle challenged herself to square them up and set them in a lovely quilt which she will give to her Dad.

Kathleen Baer kept with the ‘wool theme’ by showing a beautiful, bright basket of wool roving hand dyed with Kool Aid.  I’m sure she will find many uses for this in her art quilts!

Laurel Christensen completed “Zinnias”, a Kim Diehl pattern that she made at the Park City retreat.  Colored ‘tongues’ in the border are striking!   Way to get a quilt done fast!
