March Quilt Group 2012

March 8, 9 and 10th was the Arizona Quilters Guild Quilt Show
Many of our group were able to go the the show.
 The highlight was this Arizona Centennial Commemorative Quilt
It is now on display at the Arizona History Museum, Tucson, Arizona
 Now for Show and Tell
Donna told us about a clever way do do Grandchildren birthdays.
A Grab Basket.
 She made some new pillowcases to add to the basket.

Donna Stared these nubbins?  It is the start of something great.

Some of the civil was prints Donna found at the Quilt Show

Donna finished this bright block of the month.  Love the quilting.

Donna always has to show her
Garage Sale finds.
 This cute little sewing machine for $3.00!

Jan shows off this quilt her 8 year old Granddaughter made for her first quilt.
Great to have Grandma for a teacher.

Jan made this bigger quilt for a Raiders fan Son-in-law

Glenna's Bright and Wild Quilt 

JoAn bought this pattern last month @
"Cabbage Rose"
and finished this table runner.
The little blue birds are hand appliqued.
 Good Job JoAn

JoAn has 80  star blocks.
 A good start on a quilt for her bed.

Mary Ann shows off this pretty quilt.  A nice twist on the snowball pattern.

Jeanene Was our host for the night.
 Jeanene's quilts are always so precise so she shared a tip with us.

She uses this glue for making sure her points are perfect.  She gave us a little demo.  We are all going to try it. I forgot to take pictures of her Farmer's Wife Blocks  but they are awesome.
She uses the glue for the tiny piecing.

Another Fabulous Quilt made by Jeanene.
Thanks Jeanene for the great night.

So bummed I missed out on both the quilt show and a fun quilt group night. And, in case anyone saw the weather, we were right in the middle of 2 snowstorms that blew threw Oregon. So, we will be home for a couple of weeks and then turning right around to come back to Oregon to pick up where the snow stopped us. Going to have to figure out a way I can join in via computer video chat or something. Awesome quilts everyone!
