Susan Hofercamp and Pam Shartzer are always so willing to share Kentucky State Fair Information with the group. There are a few changes every year, and this year was no exception. One important change is that this year an exhibitor can have an entry in any number of departments (except Homebrew Beer) for $15. (That’s $15 total and not per entry.) Hopefully that will help people consider more entries. There are also a few changes in the textiles. If you did not get to pick up a book at the meeting, they are available at local quilt shops. All information is also located on-line at kystatefair.org. There was also a slide show about the “Do’s and Don’ts or a Competition Quilt”.
SEW AND TELL
Debbie finished the quilting on an old patchwork quilt-top.
Kim does lovely quilting and piecing.
Nice bright colors on Debbie’s quilt, and she added a little patchwork on the back with leftover scraps.
At an earlier meeting Sanghetta learned how to free motion on her domestic machine. Hard to believe she is only a FMQ beginner!
This is one of two memory quilts Sandy made after a friend’s daughter died. The fabric is from the daughter’s clothes; the appliqués at the top and bottom were taken from a jacket.
Marilou jazzed up this beautiful piece of fabric by adding trapunto to the white circles to give it some dimension.
A quilt for Cuddle Care.
This quilt is made totally from half square triangles and scrappy four-patches
Bill’s patriotic quilt, just in time for July 4th.
Debbie’s happy placemat for her grandson. Elliott. Notice how the quilting duplicates the shape of the balloons.
In the fall Susan will teach us how to make this cover for your steering wheel to keep it from getting so hot in the summer.
