September 2011 Meeting

Dianne and Sandy, two of our very talented members, created this basket for the 2011 Quilt Festival hosted by the Utah Quilt Guild. As you can see, it is so outstanding that it took a first place ribbon at the Salt Lake County Fair. Thank you so much ladies for your wonderful work!
Tina showed us the block she has made for the Home of the Brave project. Because our next meeting and our quilt retreat coincide, we will will have work meeting for those not attending the retreat. It will begin at 5:00 p.m. and we will be bringing our sewing machines and doing whatever is needed to complete some of the quilts.
 Kathy, Jill, Ruth, and Barbara brought their September(presented in August) blocks to share with everyone. Good work ladies.
 Now on to sharing! Enjoy the eye candy!!!! Be sure to click on the pictures if you would like to see close ups!

 We also had one project presented for this years UFO challenge.

Challenge Quilt Meeting

Greater Salt Lake Area Quilt Chapter hosted our annual challenge meeting again this year. Thank you so much for letting us share our quilts with you! This years challenge had to included at least four snail trail blocks and had to be completed this year. We had nine ladies finish challenge quilts.
 Winner of the Challenge will be announced at our regular guild meeting Thursday, September 8th.
Linda gave an interesting history of the the snail trail block and asked that any members that had quilts they had made in the past or any unfinished quilts that included snail trail blocks to bring the quilts and share. Here are some of the amazing quilts, finished and unfinished.

 We also had some lovely show and tell. Enjoy!

August Meeting

Sorry this post is so late. I didn't attend the meeting, so it will be short on words but long on pictures. First, Kari presented the program she shared with us an easy method for making spider web blocks.
 Then Pat showed us a quilt she has made for the Home of the Brave Project.
Barbara and Ruth shared their Block of the Month blocks. Good work ladies!
 We had some amazing projects shared in show and tell so enjoy the pictures to follow.

 Aren't our ladies amazing!

Last, but by not means least we had two wonderful quilts shared by two wonderful young ladies!  It's so good to know that this art is being passed on to the future.
