September 7, 2017 – Sew and Tell

Sew and Tell is always and exciting part of our meetings!  Not only were some fabulous items shared, but the meeting continued with an incredible presentation by modern quilter Jane Adolf.  Jane’s work is a blog entry of its own, so check back to see her amazing work in the next blog.

It is obvious that Angelique loves bright colors!  The Kentucky State Fair Featured Category for 2018 is “Back to Basics – 9 patch”.  This will be a perfect entry, with a modern flare, for the featured category.  She also shared a bright bargello.

Will it be a boy or a girl?  Sarah is prepared for either with a feminine Snow White quilt for a girl or a fun mustache quilt for a boy.  She also shared a soft and cuddly afghan made by her mother.

JoAnn created this quilt from a Ginny Doan tutorial.  If you’re not familiar with Ginny Doan, you’ll want to check out her countless youtube videos.

At our last meeting Irene Hofer from Cozy Quilter taught us how to make a snack tote.  Here are three that have been completed.

Linda made this wonderful Tee Shirt quilt for an aunt.  Each child and grandchild is represented by a tee shirt.  Notice the tee shirt label on the back with the family tree.  What an excellent idea!

Linda collaborated with a friend in Austria to make this crazy quilt for another friend.  The backing is just as delightful with personal notes and pictures.  The recipient must be a cat lover – there are scatterings of felines throughout.

Luann created this bright “I Spy” quilt for a friend.  The “Sun and Water” wall hanging was made for a relative who lives in Biloxi – the land of sun and water.  And casinos, but that’ll be another project.

Thanks to all who shared.  Seeing the work of other people is an inspiration.
