the quilt group blog blitz is coming I promise! It just got postponed a little since that lovely snowstorm made canning everything left in the garden a necessity.
And if any of you still have tomatoes left, I posted the link to Roasted Tomato Soup on my personal blog.
This is the tomato soup Donna showed our Relief Society how to make and I think should be served in Heaven.
I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!
We loved the Trunk Show brought to us by Delene and Darlene and the many beautiful quilts they brought to share!
These are some of the quilts Darlene showed us. She has the funnest expressive personality and so much talent!
And Delene is super talented, too! We loved her idea for using shower curtain rings to hang small quilts. The clips hold the quilt and the rings can be slipped onto pegs or slipped over a rod to display the quilt! Genius!!
We are so excited to have Veronica join us at quilt group! She shared this tiled embroidery project she is doing for a raffle. She has embroidered the Serenity Prayer on several fabric "tiles and will combine them together to make a wall quilt. She said there are 32,000 stitches in just one of the flower tiles!
Linda wanted to make a bag and shared her blue and yellow hand bag.
Julie made some adorable Easter dresses and matching purses for her granddaughters. She used some Riley Blake fabric and a Simplicity Sew Easy pattern.
Julie also showed her completed tumbling blocks quilt. It was quilted by Shirley Wilson.
Lori is making this quilt for the LDS Humanitarian Services to help her son with one of his scouting merit badges. He will help tie the quilt and then deliver it to the Humantarian Center.
Chris made this quilt from a jelly roll she received from her daughter. It is her first jelly roll quilt and it turned out beautifully. It looks like peppermint candies!
Ginny made a very cute rag quilt with rough-edge applique flowers. She used flannel instead of batting for this quilt - she said she cut up an old flannel sheet for the batting.
Rosemary used lots of flannel from her stash to make a scrappy patchwork quilt. Its amazing how odds-and-ends pieces of fabric can work together to make fun quilts!
Janis brought of the four I-spy quilts she is making for her grandchildren. She created the pattern with dissapearing 9-patch blocks and is using a quilt-as-you-go method to put it together. She said there are 78 matching sets and 10 squares that don't match.
Leann wowed us with her Lone Star quilt tops. The black background makes such a dramatic presentation!
She said she wanted to try a scrappy Lone Star and used a Soul Blossoms jelly roll by Amy Butler to put together to bright scrappy star.
LeAnn also brought this quilt her son's friend made for his girlfriend. LeAnn helped him choose the fabrics and he cut and sewed it together. LeAnn quilted it for him and he will have an awesome gift to give!
Des made this Christmas Lone Star quilt top. She has an amazing talent for putting together fabrics and making them look wonderful!
Des also showed her completed quilt using blocks from the jelly roll sampler blocks.
Des also made this scrappy quilt from her vintage "granny sheets." It was inspired by a scrappy trip around the world quilt Des saw at Quiltville. There are several trip around the world inspirations here, here and here.
Donna made these wall quilts with her mother and daughters and granddaughters. Each person made an embroidered block for herself and for each of the others. They exchanged blocks and everyone combined their embroidered blocks with repro fabric to make her own wall quilt.
Ilene showed us a levi quilt she made using the 10-minute block we learned about in March. She folded and stitched the middle(plaid) square so it looks like a cathedral window block. The curved stitching on the blocks with the folded center block completely changes the look of the completed block!
Thank you everyone for sharing your wonderful projects!
