Show and Tell in September

Guild Show and Tell is so fun.  Who doesn't love to see what every one has been working on.  Gwen made this cute wool appliqué quilt.  
This is Bonnie Miles bag she takes to work on.  It is her to go bag.

Crystal is the artist that made this one.

I think this one is Keela's

Florance made these two.  They are beautiful.

Sandy made this Charming Bag.  We got the tutorial last month on how to make this.

Look at these cute aprons.  Lyllian made these.  She also made the most wonderful salsa for the meeting.  It was scrumptious.

Rhea showed us the block of the month.  I hope you are all coming nicely along with yours.

I like this picture better than the one I showed you on Tuesday.  This is that pincushion from one of the magazines Bonnie brought.  If anyone knows what issue I would love to know.  It is from either Quiltmania or Simply Vintage.

And last but not least is Roxanna showing her block from her lunch bag exchange.  We sure have a lot of fun at guild.  Everyone is welcome to join.  We also welcome everyone to our open sew on Wednesday nights at the Panguitch Senior Citizens Building.

Bonnie Miles

Bonnie Miles was our guest speaker at our guild meeting this month.  She has some wonderful ideas and tips.  This quilt above was made using both hand and machine appliqué.  She says that if you don't need a to go project why not use your machine.  It does a wonderful job and in most cases it is hard to tell which piece was done by hand or machine.

Bonnie showed us this wonderful yarn made to make scrubbies.  You know the things you use to scrub your dishes.  They are wonderful.  This yarn doesn't hurt your hands while you are crocheting.  The scrubbies can be washed in your dish washer too.

This was made from scraps and then quilted with the long stitch using pearl cotton.

She made this basket quilt by cutting up some 9 patch blocks she had.   She cut them on the diagonal and appliqued the handles.  She then made filler blocks to go between to make the quilt bigger.

These are a couple of the cute wool hexagon blocks she has been working on.  She says there are so many of these on the internet you can make loads of them.  She likes to put a woven light weight interfacing on the back of her wool to maintain the shape and keep it from fraying.

Quilt Mania is a magazine.  I had never heard of this magazine before.  I looked through it and thought it looked fabulous.  I went home and ordered me one.  She also showed us simply Vintage.  That was a good magazine too.  I am waiting patiently to read mine.  Bonnie says she subscribes to only those two magazines now.

This is one of the projects in one of those magazines.  It is a darling pincushion.

Bonnie is working on more scrap quilts.

She showed us a keilidescope ruler that you use to make this quilt.

This one was done with this pineapple ruler.  I will make a beautiful quilt.  It was so nice to have Bonnie come and show us some of her great ideas.  It was a great night.  The refreshments were fabulous too.

My Girlfriends Quilt Shop

I was in Midway, Utah this month and stopped in to My Girlfriends Quilt Shop.  It is a cute shop on the corner across diagonally to the south of the park.  I am not certain what the address is exactly but it is a fun shop to see.  They seem to always have events going on there.  I am on the email list and at times wish I were at least three hours closer.  
This top quilt looks like it is one of Buttermilk Basin's patterns.  It is darling and out of my favorite medium, wool.

I have made this pattern.  I love the addition of the trees and clouds.  Who ever made this did a beautiful job.  I love the stripe background too.

This is lovely.  I love it.  I think this would make up to be a perfect barn quilt for me.  I would love this painted on the side of my house.  I don't have a barn.

Halloween is coming!!!  Are you ready?

This one would be quick and fun to make.

This is a Utah quilt if I ever did see one.  Utah is called the Beehive State.

I love the warm colors on this one.  It looks like a Kim Dheil pattern.


I would never make a back to school quilt but this is cute.  I love the books and the book worm.

I am sure this is a hit.  Many of my friends make quilts for their kids going off to college.

The 3-D pinwheels are so fun.

This one is simple but cute.  One star makes the whole baby quilt.

I wonder if this flower is made using a log cabin ruler.

This would be a quick one to make.

If you are running out of wall space these are perfect to set around.  I already ran out of flat surface space.

This is just a runner.  Isn't it a happy one.

I think I would put "If the shoe fits."

Dianne made this one many times.  It is a fun quilt.

They have a stitchery section there too.

The modern look is so popular.  I have many friends that lean more to the modern side.

This is a cute little quilt.  I really like it.

This was the row by row challenge.  It is perfect for Midway.  It has that Swiss look.

My Girlfriends Quilt Shop is a fun place to go.  In fact Midway is so beautiful.  I know you would not be disappointed if you went there just for a drive.  The fall colors are gorgeous.  They are in the mountains and it is a quiet city, unless you go during their Swiss Days.
