Final FQG Show and Tell of the year

Have a look at many of the spectacular quilts at our final meeting of the year. I didn't get photos of all the quilts, but I got a good representation. We'll try to get other pictures from the Show and Tell from some of the other cameras that were in the room. We'll add them to the members gallery on the sidebar.
Marieke made this quilt with her grandmother Sally L. and came to the pot luck to show us her work. Everyone gave her a big round of applause. What a great job she did and we're so pleased that she came to show it. (Our apologies- we've had trouble with the formatting of this post. The spacing between photos and text seems to want to "do it's own thing"; I've tried several times to edit and fix it but it seems to have a mind of it's own. Our apologies for the gaps... LH.)

Dawn S. made this wallhanging from a kit. That single piece of fabric in the center just sparkles with all those complimentary colours around it.

Lois made this little quilt from a picture of a larger quilt. Those little houses that were paper pieced, are lit up so nicely and the stars are twinkling in the night sky. It's so sweet Lois!

Paula M. made these bags and some of the materials were recycled. The green bag was made using a charm square pattern, but used regular non-cut fabric instead. Great work.

Charlotte M's is wowing us this year with all the work she's been doing. This is her shuffle style quilt. It is a tall quilt, but not quite as tall as Charlotte who you see peeking over the top.

LaVerne's granddaughter Rian is the lucky girl who will get this custom creation. The Sunflower has dimensional leaves.

This quilt by Robyn A. is mostly done from left over fabrics from other projects. If you look closely you can see the beautiful feathers that were quilted in the side setting triangles. Isn't it beautiful!

Joan Whelpley, one of our members who was awarded a lifetime membership for her contributions to the community, is amazing. She comes to guild each month with a collection of childrens quilts that she has made. Here are three that she brought with her this month.

Lee and the Friday girls took a challenge earlier this year. She practiced various machine quilting styles and this finished challenge was quite impressive.

Linda G. and Jean K. made these bags in the February workshop. Linda shows it closed and Jean is showing it open. It's a really neat bag that you can flip over your arms and wear backpack style or carry over your shoulder like a regular purse. Great job girls.

Marijke H. confessed that she didn't like doing prarie
points, but didn't she do a great job on this sweet little quilt.

Sandy Mac. made this Karen Henry inspired dragonfly wallhanging. It was made using non-traditional quilting fabrics like organza so that parts of it are "see-through".
It was stunning.

Doesn't Tracy H's bali batik Strip Cocktail quilt look stunning? Love those batiks!

Valerie M. finished this lovely landscape with dimensional leaves.

Stay tuned for more Show and Tell quilts!
