Garfield County Fair Quilts

These are some of the quilts from our fair.  It has been a couple of months but my life has been extremely busy.  I love our fair and have loved participating in all the events.  My family looks forward to it all year.  Does your county fair do fun activities that you look forward to also?

This first quilt is Laretta's Utah quilt.  She has done a beautiful job on this quilt.  She does fantastic machine embroidery.

This one is a whole cloth tricot quilt that was hand quilted.

This one just blends in and you can't see it because it is camouflage.  Ha Ha.  Once when I was a lot younger I took my younger brother to pick up something from the police station.  He told me he was going to rob the police station and he would wear camouflage.  Nobody could see him if he wore camouflage.  I thought that was so funny.  I think this quilt was made out of army clothes.

I think this is darling.  I would love to do one like this with places in Panguitch.  Panguitch is changing though.  Shops are changing hands and who knows what it will look like with the new owners.

This is my daughter Sophie's quilt she made with the 4H.  They didn't have her enter it in with the 4H group because she was too young.

My daughter Zoey made this one.  It what impresses me is that she did it all.  She sewed the blocks together, marked it and tied it.  I helped bind it but she is really doing well for a 10 year old.

Isn't this a pretty pattern with the nine patch.  It is so pretty.

The square in a square is a nice pattern too.  This one is soft too.

My daughter tied this one.  Sophie is 8 and she tied it by herself.  I also helped her bind it.  The interesting thing about this one is that her great grand mother bought this fabric to make a quilt for a great grand child and here her great grand child made the quilt she had planned.

This was a runner for our LDS Temple project.

This is one of my favorite quilts.  Later made this one.  It is huge and I love it.

Becky is great at making the western quilts.  What am I saying?  She is a fabulous quilter on any quilt.

I can't remember if this one is Jerilu's or Dianne's.  It is a simple pattern and I think the pattern is called lasagna.

LaVee created this one.  She is fabulous.  She has made one for each of her grandchildren for when they get married.  I would not mind being one of her grand children.


This pattern may be the disappearing four patch.

I think this is one of Bee in My Bonnet patterns by Lori Holt.

This is a cute quilt and if I remember right Dianne made this one.

We did a round robin for the fair.  This quilt was made by Becky.  The top two blocks were made by Becky, the jars and pie was mine, the pin wheels was made by Linda, the sheep is Angeli's and the sunburst was Roxanna's.  Top marks for Becky for finishing.

This quilt of mini jars was created by Lana.  She amazes me.

Isn't this beautiful?

Angeli made this one.

Ok this is either Jerilu's or Dianne's.

Lana also created this one.  I love it.

LaVee made this dresden.

This is another one of our round robin quilts.  I think this one is LaRetta's.  My block is the bottom left block.

This is one of the ones that I would love to make.  I think this one is LaVee's.

Crystal created this fun quilt.  It is done with wool.  She is an amazing quilter.  This next one is hers also.

This last one is from Jennifer's daughter.

I hope you all keep up the good work.  I love this fair and hope you enjoy yours.  School is going well and I am enjoying all that I am learning.  I want to remind you all that my neighbors house is still for sale.  It has a spectacular view and is very well kept and maintained.  It is move in ready.  Contact me if you are interested and I will run next door and set up a time for you to see it.

September Guild

We were really blessed to have Claudia Crump show us value differences, this month.  She said that value or light, medium, and dark make a big difference in our quilts.  She also talked to us about color and the color wheel.  The design in this quilt would be totally different if there weren't such a difference in the values of the darks and lights.

This is our block of the month.  It is a log cabin made by Debbie.

This quilt you can see the "X" because of the contrast in value with the scraps.

Crystal made this wool table runner.
Some of us made table toppers or table runners for people coming to dedicate the Cedar City Temple.  I did get mine done but not in time to show it at guild.  If you can come see our Temple.  The open house is free and you would not believe how beautiful it is.  The open house is from October 27th-November 18th except Sundays.  For tickets look up templeopenhouse.lds.org.
This is Gwen's nine patch with prairie points.

Sheree made this one.  It is hand appliqued and hand quilted.

Keela's is really pretty.  Those look like one inch strips.  Wow.

Cheri's daughter made this cute bag.  She even sold some.

Cheri made another bandana quilt for a grand-daughters wedding.

Marie is going through her stash like gang busters.  She has made something each month using her stash.  She made 9 of these little see-through zipper bags.

Claudia put together this log cabin quilt.  Those are little pieces too.

Claudia made an everything bag too.  She said that the next one she makes will be with bigger pockets.

Each year Claudia makes a snowman quilt.  These are her latest.

This pattern was in Simply Modern or Quilt Mania Magazine, she can't remember.

This is showing the difference the value makes in making a pattern.  If your fabric is too dark to be a light, turn it over and use the back as the front.

This could be a flower it is so pretty.

Angeli is showing her blocks from the block of the month blocks.  She is getting them done even though she is behind.

LaRetta is an amazing quilter.  This is her Utah quilt.  The Sego Lilly's are the state flowers and the sea gull is the state bird.  Utah is called the Bee Hive State.  I am sure there is meaning in the blocks but I don't know them.

Sandy made this as her table topper.  Look at the temple in the center.

Lillian appliqued flowers on her table topper.

Rhea does beautiful work too.  This is hers.

This is Rhea's bench pillow.

She also used a panel to make this cute quilt.

I think this pattern is so pretty.  I think Rhea did this one.

This one is appliqu├ęd on.  Isn't this amazing?

I tell you all these ladies are amazing and they do beautiful work.  Remember to get your tickets to the open house for the Cedar City Temple.  We hope to see some of you there.
