March Show and Tell

Lots of fun stuff:
Wanda Sump showed two quilts. On "Jacob's Quilt", she modified the pattern using a black silhouette of a dirt biker and skateboard with rough and cool colors. She learned to machine applique and used an animal print for the backing. "Chocolate Quilt" is a 'Piece O'Cake' design with appliqued flowers. Wanda's daughter challenged her to use polka dot fabrics for all flowers, blues for all the stems, and greens for all leaves. With chocolate brown as the background, this is a very striking quilt!
Marilyn Steele displayed "Stained Glass Window". She took this class during a Knotts retreat. It is done in pastels and will be given to a granddaughter turning 12 in June. The border is exquisite!
Lil Anderson made "Sail Away" by Lil' Stitches in 1930's fabrics. It contains propeller blocks surrounded by sailboats - very vintage! She also created "Old Fashioned Hospitality" by Kim Diehl out of scraps from her stash. It has a pineapple with appliqued swirls that makes a welcoming wall hanging or a great table topper!
Megan Legas displayed "Dahlia". Margaret Cooper gave her a blue antique dahlia quilt top. Megan added new backgrounds in shades of blue and hand quilted the top, restoring it for today.
Maureen Tuttle made "Monkey Boy", a blue, green, white and brown baby quilt for her new grandson, Liam, who is due soon. Her son's nickname as a baby was "monkey-boy". Now he is having his own little "monkey-boy". Maureen designed and quilted the quilt.
Linda Roskelley showed "Happy Accident 2". She pieced the pinwheel blocks and joined them together, then realized they needed to be separated with sashing. Linda is proud of her stash for stepping up and providing the fabric for this quilt that all wants to be together.
Janice Walker made 3 quilts "Cubbie Bear" is from Lynette Jensen's pattern and has 3-D bears. "Pioneer Quilt Sampler" is a block of the month from Fabric Mill with pieced blocks. "Peek-a-boo Bear" is a cute kit from Keepsake Quilting.
Davidene Zimmerman displayed two quilts. Nancy Halvorson's "Tidings" is a Christmas quilt with applique, and she added Bonnie Miles' border called 'wandering geese'. "Spools" is a mystery quilt from Becky Morganson made with Mary Engelbreit fabrics and a scalloped border.
Tricia Tolton also displayed two quilts. "Farmer's Wife" was started in September and finished in January! After the quilt was bound, she decided it needed a "skinny border". She took the binding off and started over to add the little black border, which really does 'make the quilt'. She used all of the scraps for the back (disappearing 9 patch). "Crazy Flowers" is a mystery quilt from Morganson's in Payson, and really fun to create!
