We had a great showing of talent, as usual:
Bonnie Wilkins brought an 1882 Blue and White Irish Chain quilt, made by her husband's great grandmother:
Cock of the Walk
Barb Murdock showed "Pink and Green" with flannel on the front and minky on the back - for her granddaughter that kept hinting that Barb could make her a quilt for her birthday with minky on it.
Barb also created a bright, prink, white and yellow quilt from a kit she purchased in Delta. She worked on it at the November retreat and will be giving it to her granddaughter in Alaska:
Merlene Crapo brought an elaborate wooden bowl created by a wood-turner from Canada. There are 8 different quilting designs around the outside. She discovered that many wood-turner's wives are quilters like herself!
Nancy Palmer created "Doodle Bugs", a child's quilt with appliqued caterpillars, bugs and frogs. She also created "Fly Away" for her 5 year old grandson which features airplanes and has a navy blue minky backing. "Sugar and Spice" is an appliqued paper doll quilt made for her granddaughter showcasing fabric from her baby quilt and the parents' wedding quilt among others. This adorable quilt was made from Nancy's stash except for the borders!
Kathy Porter created these doodle quilts:, "Nativity Doodles" & "Love Multiplies" - she has started her own pattern company where you can purchase these patterns "Doodlehoot.com" She also designed and made this cute watermelon bag:
Nina Cook has us 'dreaming of Quilt Fest' after completing two quilts by Flavin Glover. "Ticky Tacky" is a log cabin row house quilt, and "Tuscan Village" is a subdued-colored quilt of the Italian countryside, also made of log cabins, of course!
We also got to see this great quilt (with a blue label - to keep things "fair")
