January Show & Tell

Denyce showed us two versions of pineapple quilts. This one is very patriotic and fun!

The version below had many more pieces per pineapple but is also really cute.

Mary Jane made this quilt with penguins up for a birthday - super cute!  Faces did have a lot of pieces. 

Suzie is back with another layered soft, warm quilt!

Unfortunately, the photo of Suzie's backpack is not very sharp. Noodlehead design with cork on the bottom.  Super nice!

Marie made this stunning quilt for her son's wedding. He returned it to her so she can put a sleeve on to hang it!

Chelsea showed us two quilts.  This finish has colorful strips.

The second granny square quilt is using fabric from Trish's scraps, although the pattern was based on jelly roll fabric.  Here is a Moda pattern for a granny square using jelly roll fabric.

Sarah showed us her colorful Christmas stockings!

Alison showed us the cutest Christmas cat! Pattern called Bah-Humbug!  We also heard about her new adopted cat!

Patti brought the pattern for a fabric tray -- "Zip Up Tray Pouch" by Aneela Hoey.

Laurie showed a nice purple tote bag with hand sewn hexagons and dresdens on the side.  Very cute!

René had a number of finishes to show us.  She started off by showing us her Quilt-Con mini-quilt that she will be swapping with another Modern Quilt Guild member in Sweden.  She aimed toward a Danish modern aesthetic.  Very lovely with Japanese fans in the middle.

Next was a snowman quilt started 17 years ago.  She practiced free motion quilting with a ruler to bring this to a finish.

This one was from a kit that René put together at a recent retreat.  Did a Greek key quilting on it with backings pulled from her stash.

The next one is 12 years old, and René did more traditional ruler work on it.  Used "line-tamer" ruler for straight-line and generously contributed it to our charity quilt collection.

Next one at least 18 years old.  René pieced random squares, and then used wavy lines with a wavy ruler.  Very nice! Another donation to charity.

This one is 2018 start, and with Zen Chic pattern using the same ruler.  Gorgeous!

Finally, René showed her back-pack she made with Suzie (same Noodlehead pattern).  Plans to use at Quilt Con!

Pat showed a place mat she did with a Christmas theme.

Carolanne making a jelly roll rug, and showing the ball of fabric ready to be sown into the rug.

Carolanne showed Kona Splash patterned quilt using color of the year.  Was very quick to put together.  Great colors!

Then there are two extra blocks for pillowcases.

Last but not least, this is the Quilters Planner block of the month for last year that Carolanne finished up the top for!  More pretty colors with Alison Glass fabrics and some solids!
