Show and Tell September & October 2021

From Linda D … My Hallowe’en Dresden Village … finished! (Lions Gate Quilters Guild Workshop)

From Diane … Wheelchair quilts … made the top of the lighter one while watching the Zoom Seymour meeting last Wednesday.

From Anne W … Here are two quilts I just finished. The colour wheel one I made in the last Lions Gate Quilters Guild workshop with Michelle Tade Blanton. She has permission from Kim Lapacek to teach this method of doing the Dresden Plate pattern. Then I decided to do a Halloween one for my youngest, 8-year-old, granddaughter. It’s such a fun and pretty fast project.

From Diane … This is a king quilt I just finished after collecting black and red textured and cotton fabrics for the last 15 years.  This summer I finally began playing with them after a quilt-as-you-go workshop that showed me a smart way to put them together in 30-inch squares. I wish I had made a better back but I was using only material in my stash.  Back to regular lap and couch type quilts.  No more kings.

From Linda R … Made a Hallowe’en pillow case for my grand Aiden and a table runner for my niece.

From Maureen … Inspired by Sally Manke, Autumn 2019 Art Quilting Studio magazine. Derwent inkpencils, thread painting. Good practice piece, not too large. Really messed up the binding and I am not sure why. More practice required. I used fabric from IKEA curtains that were really thick, rather like canvas. Batting was just scraps.

From Janet … An “Eye Spy” quilt I made for Community Quilts, all made from the huge bin of fabric that Linda F keeps for exactly that! Linda gave me a quilt pattern which I followed, and continued to use to make the backing a little more interesting. The quilt measures about 37 x 48 inches. Hope it finds a lovely home for a little person in the future.
