October and November

Hello Ladies,

I hope you are all having a lovely holiday season. I am linking to our show and tells from our October meeting, including our block exchange.


October and November 2012

The link above is also a link to our November meeting, in which we even saw a few completed quilts from the blocks we exchanged. I am still working on mine. Kudos to those busy bees who finished them so quickly!


Next year we will resume meeting at our usual date on the second Thursday of January at 6:00 p.m. in the Hurricane Community Center with our new president Lynette Bingham. Special thanks to Judith Davis (pictured above with her Halloween quilt), who served as our president this past year. I know it is a lot of work. We had a great year and look forward to another great year with even more fun, fresh ideas.

Happy Holidays, everyone!

June, August, and September. Whew!

I forgot my camera in July, but I did remember it in June, August, and September. I had a job for a couple of months, and it seems that may have been too much for me to keep this blog up. Thankfully, I have quit, and you may now view our show and tells from




by clicking on the month's name. For June and August, note there are a couple of cathedral window photos. Judith did a great mini class on them for us.

For September, you can see the Peach Days challenge quilts all together in one photo. 

For October we will be doing a Halloween exchange, so bring 16 blocks of 11 by 11, whether you want to do half square triangles, some other block, or plain fabric is up to you. See you there!

Pat Peters Trunk Show, Amazing!

Tonight we were treated to the spectacular work of Pat Peters, who hand quilts and hand appliques with amazing skill. You can see her quilts on my Flickr  stream

HERE: Pat Peters

And our Show and Tell

Here: Show and Tell

You can see even more of Pat's work at the Utah Valley Quilt Guild's blog, linked HERE.

We also have a new block of the month, it's the bowtie on the bottom right.

Pictured below is a special quilt we are making to thank the Senior Citizens Center for letting us use their facility for such a long time:
Someone asked how she keeps her kids from stealing her quilts, and she said they have their own. But later she mentioned her husband's hobby, and I think that is the real reason no one steals her quilts: He collects guns.

February Meeting

Sadly, I forgot my camera in January, but I remembered this month, and I was rewarded.

If you want to see the two items for show and tell, click HERE. I also had one, but it is in my sewing block flickr account, so I will just paste it:
yellow+gray quilt (5)

We also had some great instruction on the block of the month:
And this Arrowhead block:
I couldn't believe how easy this was to stitch and cut into all the pieces. You sew the two 8" blocks right sides together according to the diagram, and then you cut as you can see on the design board. Then piece your block, and trim it to a 9" block. Amazing, and super minimal waste!
