August 3, 2017 – LNT Birthday Dinner

Louisville Nimble Thimbles celebrated 38 years as a guild at our annual Birthday Dinner.  In addition to the fabulous food, we enjoyed lots of door prizes, sew-and-tell, the President’s Challenge, and a surprise for one of our youngest members who is expecting her first child in October.

If anyone left hungry, it was their own fault!

These playful quilted cupcake favors adorned the tables.

The President’s Challenge was “Flower Power”.  Barbara won first prize with her beautiful thread painting quilt.  (She will be teaching a class on thread painting in September.)

Jane has some amazing free-motion quilting and beadwork in her “Watering the Plant” quilt.

Polly added dimension with her flowers on the hillside.  (Notice the little frogs in the lower corner.)

Luann made this cheerful “Hearts in Bloom” quilt.

A friend gave Cindy the center block for this quilt for her mother, and Cindy finished it with the crazy quilting blocks.  What a lovely memory!

Jo Ann shared these two quilts made from small checks and plaids.  

Great pieced backing!

The frayed edges of the stars add so much interest.

Ann shared this quilt she made for a relative.

Congratulations to Saengeeta for completing her first quilt binding on this Cuddle Care quilt.

“Gravity Quilt” was a Block of the Month by Jaybird Quilts.  Angelique used scraps from her stash in making this beauty.

Terrie is our “Rope Basket Queen”.  The ceramic vessel was used as her model for creating the rope basket.  Impressive!

Once upon a time four quilters made a flower quilt.  It was cut into four pieces, and each quilter took home one quarter of each quilt and created their own masterpiece.  Susan doesn’t know who overlooked in the directions that it was to be done in neutral colors.

The evening ended with the surprise for Sarah and baby!
