Quilt Guild

Okay, I just got home from quilt guild meeting and I am so inspired! That is the best part about guild meeting, you come home just ready to really tear it up because of all the fun things you saw people make and bring to 'sew and tell.' Well, another part about guild meeting that I love is just getting out of the house and being with fun ladies. Our little guild does have a bunch of fun ladies.
We learned some great techniques tonight and I really am ready to get going on a fun project. The quilt I spent the entire spring and summer on is gone as of 4 days ago and I am ready for something new, but not so big!!
Well, come to think of it, I have a few projects in my closet that really need to get done. I better do at least one of them first.

This picture here was taken in April at the Utah Home Machine Quilting Show. They asked quilters to participate in a Design Challenge to help raise $ for the American Heart Association. 7 of us from our guild decided to do it. We were given the fabric (UHHGGG!) and a bunch of rules and this is what we came up with. YEAH! We won the Design Challenge, $500, and donated the quilt to be auctioned off for the the AHA. It is hard to see, but all the flowers are 3-D, very cool! It was fun to get together and make it while rubbing shoulders with great quilters. Okay, I think I better add that I am chubby, but I shouldn't have stood next to my skinny-bum friend because that really makes me look even worse!

I took this picture at the same show and decided it would be my next project. What do you think? Geez, I am kidding!

This is a horrible picture, but the quilt is cute and I think I would like to make one like this. It had all these cute blocks incorporated into it and I just thought it was cute. I took this picture last week at a quilt show at Thanksgiving Point. This is more my style!

mom said...

The qulit you all made looks fantastic,,,, (i won't use the supercali-fragilisitic word), and your butt is fine,,,,,, very fine!

Rachel said...

Donkey?? Does this have anything to do with my aunt Barbara? I am a little dense you know.

And yes, Debbie did visit! Yeah!!
Thanks for the vote of love mom.

Mom said...

Barbara? (as in the aunt Barbara i know?),,,,,, Whats up with the donkey and you two??? whoooooo hooooooo!

Rachel said...

Okay, I got the donkey business figured out. My anonymous friend was referring to me referring to my sweet husband as a donkey the other day in church (long story, but a nice one) and anyway, I thought it might be one of my Aunt Barbara's kids commenting because I made her a WANTED poster about stealing donkeysat the family reunion. Long story, sorry. You have had it Richy Rich!!
