Look at what is in store for 2009!

Ladies of the Heber Valley Quilt Guild, look how exciting! Everyone else, look how exciting! Cat, Shantelle, and Sherron have been busy for months planning and designing this wonderful row quilt depicting the Heber Valley for us to make in 2009. Natalia did an excellent job quilting it also. It is gorgeous and hopefully you are excited about what is to come in 2009 for our great little guild. Come back and visit for more information on the upcoming year, but in the meantime mark your calendars for our January 8th guild meeting.

Super cute Lullaby quilts by Connie

One more post about our wonderful year of applique. KayeDawn arranged for us to make the cute cute Lullaby quilt pattern. Connie, who moved away from us and back to Washington a few months ago, has been so busy with the fun fun Lullaby pattern!

Connie is the happy grandma of two new babies and look at the darling quilts she made for her new little pieces of joy. You did a great job Connie, so cute! These are two lucky little ones to have such a talented and nice grandma! We miss you Connie and wish you the best!

They each won a hand turned wooden thimble made by KayeDawn's husband, and Liz got the cutest little plaque. Thanks to everyone who voted for who they thought improved the most during 2008.

Quarter Square Triangles

We had an additional treat at our November guild meeting. Lauren, Deonn's 18 year old daughter, did a great presentation for us on Quarter Square Triangles. She showed us how to make accurate quarter square triangles using the Quick Quarter Ruler. What a fun little tool! They can be found at Season's Of Home and many other quilting shops.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge and smile with us Lauren! You did a super job. Good Luck at your national competition!!
