 Bonnie Miles showed two quilts.  “I Spy a Rainbow” is and ‘I Spy’ quilt on the front, with a large, bright, zigzagged rainbow on the back that really pops on a white background! 
She also made a yellow/black/white quilt called “Diamonds”.  It is a modified Jilllily Studio pattern that has large diamonds with black dots on the intersections.

 Ann Lewis has finished 17 quilts in three months.  
She showed us four of them.  “Sturbridge Crossing” is a civil war quilt made with fabric by the same name.  The pattern used is Anita’s Arrowhead. 

 "Flying Carpet” is a nine patch variation

Merry-Go-Round pattern by Sandy Klop. It is done in Aunt Gracie’s fabrics.

 “Mountain Top” is a Miss Rosies pattern with tons of half square triangles.

Susan Proctor displayed two carseat covers and a “Christmas Tree Skirt “.  The skirt is made from gold fabric with a strip bias and ricrac to join the holly trim. 

“Goin’ Truckin” carseat cover has a brown background with the backing and trucks from different fabrics.  Susan designed this especially because the Daddy drives truck.  

 “Goin’ Flying” carseat cover has a background that is dark blue with little white dots like clouds. The propellers are yellow on the helicopters.  This baby’s Daddy is a pilot.

 Sylvia Kent presented “Herd from Farm to Fair”, an original design for the Utah State Fair Quilt Challenge.  The fabric was farm animal faces; the theme was ‘Animal Party’, and the size was to be 24” x 36” or smaller.  She made a pieced, embroidered, and appliquéd row quilt showing animals in different parts of the fair.  Her quilt won 1st place in Best Original Design and Best of Show overall!  Way to go!! 

Sylvia also presented “Fruit of the Spirit”, an adaptation of Words to the Wise in BH&G Quilt Sampler, Spring/Summer, 2007.  This quilt is done in reds, greens, and golds with pieced squares, and wool and cotton appliqué similar to Pennsylvania Dutch samplers.

Machelle Preston presented a “Quilt of Valor, 2011”.  Of course, it is red/white/blue and has a lovely blue toile in the border.

Wanda Sump showed three quilts.  She made a “Halloween Quilt” out of fun Halloween colors that is all appliquéd except for the candy corn, which she cut with her cricut!  She did all the blanket stitching while attending education week!

Wanda also made a “Halloween Wallhanging” out of the ‘leftovers’ from the quilt.  

 Her “Floral Applique Quilt” was cut from a jelly roll.  It has needle-turned appliqué in spring colors.  Wanda incorporated the ‘ugly’ jelly roll pieces on the back of the quilt!

 Annie Thayne showed two memory quilts made by her sister’s granddaughter for her parent’s 50th anniversary.  One has photos of their six children; the other has all the grandchildren’s names incorporated into the quilt.  

 Brenda Sommers displayed “Crab Man” that she made for her son for Christmas (he’s known to be a little crabby at times)!  The Going Costal fabric and the pattern in a medallion design are from Crazy Old Ladies.  The back is yummy, light blue minkee.

 Jacquelyn Thompson presented the “Queen and Her Court”, a beautiful sampler quilt with hand appliqué done in greens, corals, and tans.

She also made “Farm Fresh”  by Buggy Barn out of mostly homespuns with machine appliqué.  Jackie, it is way cuter than in the book!

October Meeting-Marcia's Quilt Shop

Marcia Nielsen and a group of quilter's from Richfield presented a wonderful, unique trunk show featuring challenge quilts.  Marcia owns and operates "Marcia's Quilt Shop" in Richfield, UT.  In the spring her store sponsors a quilt challenge. She gives participants a pre printed panel and they come up with amazing quilts.  It is fun to look at these quilts and see how one panel can be made up so differently!  This is a talented group of quilters.  Not only did they meet the challenge but they created artistic masterpieces!
