Feb. Meeting

Here are the quilts that were shown at my group this past month. If you don't belong to a quilt group, you're really missing out. I look forward to the meeting each month and it's so motivating seeing all the show and tells. We get tons of ideas from each other. Just put the word out in your city, maybe on something like craigslist or a flyer at the library, that you'd like to start a small quilt group that meets once a month. You'll be surprised how many quilters live right around you and would love to join.

Here's a Twister quilt that Jeanie made. It's nice and cozy with a flannel back. The made one for each of her girls.

Corrie also made this vintage baby quilt out of some Riley Blake fabric
Here's a purse that Corrie's sister made for her

Corrie made this superhero quilt for her 6 year old. She's going to add borders onto this. The same designer is now coming out with a ninja theme, so she may have to make another one soon.

Lynette made this fabric runner using Fandango cream pack.

Lynette's humanitarian quilt. She and Cindy got this fabric from Tuesday Morning.

Lynette made these peek-a-boo bags, in fact she made ten of them and has given most of them away. She made one for her grandson out of jeans and another one she made larger with pink and purple fabric for her granddaughter's Barbie collection.

This humanitarian quilt was made using small flannel squares

 Cindy's humanitarian quilt. Cindy was part of a women's stake conference at the LDS church where humanitarian work was emphasized. She put the call out to all the women involved to make donation quilts using their stash. On the night of the meeting, they had 90 donated quilts all displayed around the gym. These will be wonderful and beautiful quilts for families in need in our community.
Another humanitarian quilt by Cindy.

Rachel's daughter-in-law came to quilt group today and showed us her first quilt. This is by Abbey Lane. She's going to back it with minky fabric. Great job on a first quilt!
Rachel made this quilt while in St. George for her son. It is the Camelback Road pattern. 
Below is the back of the quilt.

Here's another quilt Rachel made. She found the pattern in a store in Utah and then found the perfect bike pattern fabric for the border in Idaho.
Rachel took the donation squares last month and made this quilt from them. She showed us her technique for making these pinwheel squares. (below)

Take two squares of fabric and set them right sides together.

 Then sew a 1/4" seam along the outside edge all the way around
Then cut diagonally both ways. You will then have four half-square triangle squares which can be pieced together to look like the pinwheel square in the blue quilt above.

Monica's completed quilt

Pink and grey stripe quilt with pink ruffles for Monica's daughter Holly

Monica made this quilt for her nieces using the line Marmelade

Sherry's grey and yellow quilt top using the same Abbey Lane pattern that Rachel's daughter-in-law used.
These are dishtowels that Sherry said she finally finished

Susan also made some lampshade squares. 

Here's another beautiful wool quilt by Susan. She's known in our group for her wool work.
Susan made some Valentine's Day cones

Here's the quilt that I showed. It's actually larger than what is showing because I have it hanging in my family room. I loved using greys and yellows. The picture doesn't do it justice because it's much more vibrant than what is showing. The pattern is called Yummy by Jaybird Quilts.
