Bonny made this colorful quilt in a class about "Painted Trees."

Carol found a bear for her basketball quilt, a donation to the guild's Teddy Bear Tea service project.

This quilt will also be donated to the Teddy Bear Tea project.

Katy shows a Comfort Quilt which she quilted.

Katy also quilted this Comfort Quilt which Margaret pieced from a jelly roll she won in a retreat raffle basket.

Delberta made this little donation for the Teddy Bear Tea project.

Glenda got this idea from Pinterest.

Glenda showed her rows for the Roosting Row Quilt Challenge.  The top row is for January: pinwheels and troublesome. The second row is for February: hearts. The third row is March's row: half-square triangles and sparkling. The bottom row is April's: log cabin.

Glenda made this wall-hanging for the Valley Guild's challenge, and she used last year's ALCQ president's fabric.

Linda made this quilt as part of the Services YMCA Kid's Quilt service project. Quilters are given photos printed on fabric and a suggested pattern. They add their own fabric to make quilts for kids age 1-6 whose parents are deployed. Kids over age 7 receive a pillow.

Nancy made this to practice the flange binding technique.

Nancy found these embroidered blocks on Ebay and made a quilt for a neighbor's baby.

The linens used in this quilt came from Nancy's friend's grandmother.

Ruthe made this comfort quilt using left-over fabric from the quilt below.

Although Ruthe told us of the problems she faced when piecing this Quilt of Valor for a friend, we  admired the final result.

Ruthe didn't have children's fabric for this YMCA Kid's Quilt so she appliquéd hearts.

December 21 Show and Tell

Barbara showed row 1 of her Roosting Row quilt challenge.

This is row 2 of Barbara's challenge.

This is row 3.

Regina showed this comfort quilt.

This is another comfort quilt.
Harmony created this quilt for her soon to arrive first grandchild. The prospective parents requested an animal theme with yellow and green colors.

Harmony and her husband travel in an RV so she does a lot of handwork  since they often don't have electrical hook-ups.

Jackie made this single Irish chain quilt with her Christmas fabric scraps.

Jackie also made a bed for her grand-dog.

The pattern of this quilt made by Jeanette is called "7-11".

This crazy-quilt-wanna-be is actually a whole cloth fabric which Jeanette quilted.

Jeanette calls this quilt "Sudoku" because of the fabric arrangement.

We were delighted by Jetta's creativity. She made a narrow Christmas tree for her sister who has limited space.

Barbara is showing a table topper that Kate made.

Kate made this Christmas wall-hanging.

Kate showed another wall-hanging. She hand pleated the green background to add texture.
