April 2014 Show and Tell



 Patsy Oehrlein showed us her treasured quilt made by her mother back in 1975.
She recently made some restoration repairs to it.

 Wanda Jackson showed us what to do with ruffled yarn when you get tired of making scarves 
..........
Make a purse !

 Next Wanda showed us her hexagon "Door Prize Quilt". 
She named it that because she won the quilt kit at a guild meeting last year.
Cute Wanda !

 Miss Millie made a self binding blanket for the Wee Care Project.

 Alice was so proud of this pillow she got as a gift from Cindy, while she was convalescing from a recent illness.. What a sweet thing to do !

 Elaine Anderson found a stack of unfinished quilt tops that belong  to her mother Stella, who is also a guild member . Elaine decided she was going to hand quilt them...this is the first one finished....
Elaine is new to hand quilting and this only took her a week to complete! 

 Vice President Doris Rice showed us what she did for a recent blog hop called 
what is your Superpower stitching hop She created this table topper/wall hanging for her Mom. She snitched the doily from her Mom's dresser drawer and appliqued the lace edging on by hand and then used invisible thread and stitched it down around the center medallion and the inner edge of the red crocheted lace.  

 President Joy Ivy shows us a quilt she will finish in time to put in the
 Wee Care booth at the upcoming quilt show. The booth will offer quilts for sale again this year, proceeds will go towards the Wee Care charity.

 Joy shows tee-shirt quilts she made for a client who has 3 daughters.



 Vickie Mazurek received a nice surprise gift from member Connie Hart....can you guess what materials Connie used to make this bag ? If you guessed plastic grocery bags, you would be correct ! 
Pretty awesome way to recycle don't you agree !
Vickie also showed a prayer flag she made after finding a postcard her Dad sent to her mother back in 1948. 

Becky Martin's last row in the row by row mystery the guild has been doing this year. 
The reveal of the quilts will be in June.  
 
 Sheila Smith's row by row.
Cindy Hadley's row by row.
