July Sew and Tell

As usual, Sew and Tell was wonderful at our July Summer Picnic. Here are a few snippets:

This is a cute lady named Ruth that will be with us for a little while in the summer and again in the fall. She lives in Ohio and spends some time here in our valley. She is a fun addition to our guild. She made this chicken quilt at a class that Deonn taught. This is one of Deonn's original patterns and it is so cute!

Kathleen finished her round robin! Quilted and all! So cute Kathleen! If you happened to do one of these borders she would like to know!
Natalia and a bunch of her cousins got together and had a MAJOR sewing party, this cute flower quilt is one of the results! The quilt below is one that she did with her cousins also. All the crazy circles are made from fabric that all the ladies brought and shared with eachother. The fun thing about this quilt is that the batting is green. Truly green in color and because it is made from recycled plastic bottles. She told us how many bottles are in this quilt, it was 8. She has this batting, among others, to use with her long arm machine business.

This fun quilt is Wendy's. The pattern is called something like 'bullseye' and this quilt is a preview of what our November quilt guild meeting will be. Sherron is going to teach us this fun pattern and we will go home with a block made - mark your calendars!

This is Rachel's sew and tell. She made most of these blocks in quilt guild in 2005 as part of a Cheri Saffiote Americana quilt. It is finally finished and Natalia quilted it, so fun!

These two pictures are also of a new quilt guild member, Carol. She lives in California and is staying here in the valley for the summer. Welcome Carol and thanks for showing us this fun fun Asian quilt!

This is Nita's millennium quilt she made for the year 2000. 2000 pieces of DIFFERENT fabric!!

Shantelle is finishing the binding of one of her round robins from a few years ago. Good Job Shantelle!

Shantelle was working on this fun 3-D pinwheel quilt top at our retreat in May, the top is now finished and she is giving this beauty to a fun neighbor that just had a baby.

More baby quilts! Bethany made this cute quilt for a friend that had twins, actually she made 2 of them but different colors. It is so soft and silky, plus there is yummy minky on the back that makes it delicious!

Bethany also recently finished this hand quilted baby quilt, good job Bethany!
