March Quilt Group 2011

Donna was our Host and she finished the top of this quilt.  She saw the quilt at the March Quilt Show.  After a few problems with the pattern and and contacting the designer she was able to get it right.  I took a picture of this 3 times and I still didn't get the colors right but it is a great quilt.  Thanks Donna for a fun evening.

Jan made this Scrappy Quilt like the one JoAn made.  Jan used all Dot Fabric. Isn't it Fab 

JoAn started this cute basket block.  She is doing this with hand appliqué and is enjoying this new Technic! 

Love, Love, Love, this "Cowboy Quilt". JoAn bought this pattern while we were at the quilt retreat a few years ago.
So Great!

Jeanene stared this quilt at the retreat also.  Some of us wanted the pattern we liked it so much.
Jeanene know just how to put colors together.

I took a picture of these three bags of  clothing.  Jeanene has really got a project .  She is making 3 quilts (for family)using fabric from a friends clothing.  

Hedy  finished all 12 of her "Attitude" blocks.  

Hedy made this cute "Messenger Bag"

shows off a doll made for her from her Art group. 

Rachelle's Reversible Bag
She made her own Pattern.

Mary Ann
 is finishing a project started for her daughter a few years ago.
Glenna got this pattern at the Mesa Quilt show.
The 2 1/2 inch squares are glued onto a background fabric then  quilted  1/4 of an inch in on each block.
 Really a fast quilt.

AZ Quilt Show

Our own quilt show in Mesa. I thought I would run down for just a few hours, but found some fun projects and some fun people.

Look who I found. We were able to check out most of the quilts together.
These are some of our favorites:
This "Schoolhouse" Quilt in Turkey Red.
 Each house quilted different.
Do you recognize this Quilt? It is our  Be Attitude Quilt on steroids!
So Great and So much more work.
How many more blocks would it take?

We really liked this quilt but the name was fabulous.
"A Tisket a Tasket there is no Yellow Basket"
Hedy has wanted to make this scrappy quilt.
She has this pattern. 
Another Great Quilt name.
Could you call this  genealogy?
We were looking at this quilt and we ask the volunteer to let us see the back and it happened to be her quilt.  She was delighted to "Show and Tell" about the quilt.  This is a quilt she made for her daughter and the fabrics are from her dresses.  It has taken her ____ years (Donna and Hedy help me with the story).   
The back label shows pictures of the daughter in some of the cloths.  How fun is that?
Another Out of Control Quilt.
Second Half
Plain and Simple
Love it!
This was one of about 5 or 6.  All a little different.

Awesome wool quilt.
  Donna said if you want to try this she has wool to get you started.
We all thought this looked like one of Jeanene's . Or someone got into your brown and pinks!
 If you have time, check it out!
