June 2018 Meeting


1. KATHY PORTER showed us her two latest beauties.
Harry Potter Quilt.

Delirious Quilt by Karen Stone, a quilt with bright colors.

2.  HELENA MISKIN brought two adorable baby quilts and an International Tie Quilt.

Petty Nor num nti shared lyhe Be My Neighbor, a quilt with spring colors and pink houses, which was block of the month at American Quilting.

3.  CAROL FORD said of her colorful, Scrappy, I purchased some blocks at the garage sale last year. I wanted to thank whomever donated these blocks and remind everyone to check out the garage sale at this year's July Quilt Fair.

4. PAULEEN CLAYTON showed us her fun Hill Billy Camp Quilt. My family goes camping often. My daughter wanted a quilt for camping, so I made 8 of them for the family.

5. DIAN FINCH's Fun To Make is a beautiful lime green with many accent colors.

6. DOROTHY GROSS brought three lovely quilts.
First, Oodles of Doodles is a king sized quilt with embroidered blocks made at the request of her daughter.

Second is a table runner, Many Hands Make Light Work. A table runner in which she collaborated with three friends: Carol Peterson, Shelli Stephenson and Dorothy Gross.

And, finally, Turning 20 - Hooray for the USA!, a patriotic quilt.  Inspiration also because I have three sons-in-law who have or are serving. One who has retired and a grandson who is serving now, stationed in Germany.

7.  MAUREEN TUTTLE shared two stunners.
Let's Scrap Talk, a quilt made with my leftover bright prints and text prints. (Black & White.) Hand quilted with the Big Stitch method with 12-weight thread.

Matching clamshell pillow, English paper pieced and hand quilted.

Hexi-gems, which has a gray background with yellow, turquoise, gray prints from Moda, designed by ZenChic. The line is called "Fragile."  Pattern was a video tutorial by Missouri Star Quilt Co.  Machine quilted on my Bernina.

8. LORRI CUMMINGS brought three lovely quilts.
The first one, Bubbles, was made with '30s fabrics, a Kaffe Fassett design.

Cherry Jubilee started out as a charm pack that she received as a gift. She loved it and bought three more packs and made a queen-sized quilt.

And, finally, Hidden Star.  This quilt I made 30 years ago but never got it quilted.  Not only are there 11 stars hidden in the design of the quilt, it's been hiding in a dark closet waiting to be finished.

9.  WENDY SHOOP's fun Rag Picnic is blue/purple checkers with gray posts. She sent the quilt to a friend who was married in San Diego. She made it extra long to accommodate his height.

Really cool quilt tote, designed to easily put a large quilt in or out.

TRACY SOMMERS on what it's like to be married to a quilter!
