May 2011 Quilt Projects

We are going waaayyy back in time to the May quilt group meeting. We don't want to leave these projects out!

Everyone loved this mini quilt from DeLene she shared as part of the trunk show. It is made from scraps and has so many pretty touches - embroidery, buttons, crochet flowers and applique.

Rose brought this colorful fall quilt top.

Valerie shared the completed tile quilt she started earlier. The design is so simple but stunning with the Serenity Prayer in the center and pretty quilting.

Rachel brought the adorable Easter outfits she made for her family.

LeeAnn made a fun bag with pretty coordinating fabrics and a button closure.

Heidi found the cutest flannel for boys at Walmart and made some cute baby blankets and nursing covers.

Kaylene shared her finished basket mini quilt made form little scraps she received in fabric exchange.

This colorful puzzle baby quilt was shared by Rosemary.

Maureen shared this red and green quilt top. The sashing is so pretty and really makes the 9-patch quilt stand out.

Julie made some school bags for the Humanitarian Center and "threw together" a butterfly mini quilt.

I want this soup in heaven

Wellllll ------
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.

Bring Out Your Inner Sherlock!

Join us for a Mystery Quilt Along at the Tuesday Club!!  
We will tell you the supplies you need and what to sew each month.  The pattern will be a mystery.  You will channel Agatha Christie as you try to find out what we're doing!  

This quilt works well with scraps as well as being a great leaders and enders quilt!

We are gathering supplies and starting our first step to be completed by the September Meeting. 

*3 Charm packs (with a minimum of 40 charms each)
*3 1/2  yards in a solid. This will be for your blocks and the 1st 2" inside border. OR you can also use 3 Moda Bella Solid Charm Packs and get an additional *2/3 yard for the 1st inner border.
*Border 2 - 1 yard in print of choice

1st step:  From your solid fabric, cut 75 – 5” squares.  (approx. 10 strips of 5”) 
With one charm and one solid, make a triangle square.
……ooohhh such a mystery. Next step, next month!

Trunk Show by D and D

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!!

It was definitely "ALL BUBBLES!" 

 We loved it! Thank you Darlene and Delene!!!

Shop Hoppy

It may have been a bit blustery outside 
but that didn't stop the shop hoppers!
We had a fun little jaunt down to Pocatello 
and back to Ribbon Retreat in Shelley.

 Best free treat of the day!

 Um, this was pretty much Heidi's look the whole trip!
Love those clearance fabrics!!
Fun time was had by all!
~Thanks ladies~

Remember your rainbow blocks!

I just want to remind everyone you can still make rainbow blocks and bring them to the June meeting for the charity project!

I also wanted to share a couple rainbow projects I've seen online that I absolutely love!!!! These are both on my "wish list" to try someday!

First is this Bottled Rainbows Quilt-along from Stitched in Color.  You have to go to the links to see how the quilt blocks are made. It is adorable!!!!

The second rainbow quilt I really love is this one made from scraps on the A Quilt is Nice blog.
 So, so cute and colorful!

It's a Baby~ June's Meeting

This is going to be fun.  
We've got some fun things up our sleeves 
and they're not just elbows! 
This baby shower is just a theme 
and we would still love to see 
anything you are busy with.  

It does not have to be 'baby-ish'.  
But if there's something you've always 
wanted to try for a baby gift
or a special baby in your life....
this is the month to challenge yourself!  
Bring a friend and help us celebrate 
Sweet T. Baby!!

April 12 more projects

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!
