April Show and Tell

Francine Berrett displayed a “Honey of a Quilt”.  
She took this class from Saundra Cindrich at Bryce Canyon.  The pattern was designed by Saundra, and the quilt made by Francine with Aunt Gracie and thirties fabrics for a scrappy look.  The quilt is framed by an appliquéd vine border, designed by Francine.

 “I Believe in Brothers” was made by Margaret Cooper.  She used a Christmas themed panel from the “I Believe” fabrics by Nancy Halverson.  The pattern was designed by Becky Morganson.  Backed with forest green minkee, the quilt is extra snuggly.  Margaret made this quilt in honor of her brothers.

“Melody’s Many Dresses” was also made by Margaret Cooper.  This quilt has small appliquéd and embellished dresses on a cream background.  A lot of work and a lot of fun went into this quilt for her new granddaughter, Melody.  The backing is a paper doll fabric that Margaret liked so much, she bought the entire bolt!  Melody got off to a scary start, spending fifteen days in the NICU, but she is doing fine now.  Congratulations, Margaret!
