March Sew and Tell

As always Sew and Tell was wonderful. I do
have to apologize to those of you who brought
sew and tell and do not see it here. My camera decided
not to record pictures for about 10 frames. If you
are one of these people and want your project on the
blog, then bring it to Quilt Guild meeting and we will
try it again. So Sorry!!!

This is a quilt Deonn made. She is also teaching a
class on how to make it at Seasons of Home.

KayeDawn made this signature quilt for her
grandson who is in the military.

KayeDawn's beautiful applique block.

Deonn designed this cute owl block.

Deonn also designed this darling chick table runner.

Michele tried out a new technique. Fabric Stained Glass.

Fun block!

Natalia and Kathleen designed this cute table runner that
is attached by buttons. When they are unattached they
become individual place mats. Love it!!!
You can find this pattern on Moda's website.

Carol made this patriotic quilt. When she got finished
she thought that it was too bright and wanted it to be more
muted tones. So she dyed it ecru with Rit dye. It turned
out great. What a brave woman.

Beth finished her block of the month quilt
from American Quilting. It is gorgeous.

Lisa made this fun black and white quilt.

Andrea made this quilt for her nephew who is getting
his Eagle Scout Award. It is made out of
scouting fabric.
