April Quilt Guild

Our April guild meeting was fun.  My friend, LaRetta instructed us on how to make the Metro Rings blocks.  I really love this design and I want to make it.
She showed how each of the blocks go together and told us that they square up nicely.

She said that you cut your jelly roll strips in half then sew the strips together.  That way the strips don't get out of control.  You have to have the special ruler to make this block.

Pat has decided to make smaller quilts now that her kids are gone.  This log cabin quilt is really cute.

Tonya made her grand daughter a spirit quilt.  It is soft.   She appliquéd the blocks.

This is LaRetta showing us how to put the curved pieces together.  She says you don't use pins.

Carol is new to our group.  She says she is a bag lady.  She loves to make bags.  She showed us two cute bags she made.

She also showed us her partridge in a pear tree quilt.  Darling.

Debbie brought us a few quilts to see.  She made this and the next two.

I love the colors on this.  She said she used quite a large block to make this so she wouldn't have to do so many.  I think she quilted them too.

This is her son's mission quilt.  He went to Texas on his mission for the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  He got home over a year ago but she got it done.

Lyllian made this.  The colors are so calming.  I love it.

This pretty pinwheel quilt is also Lillian's.  

Look how cute this half square triangle quilt turned out.  It almost looks like diamonds.  It is so bright and cheery.  I love it.  Anyone in the Bryce Canyon area on the third Wednesday you are welcome to come to our guild.  We have a really good time.  Also the other Wednesdays we have open sew in Panguitch at 6:00.
