May 1 Show and Tell

After the regular ALCQ business meeting, members showed their latest handiwork.

Jackie held up an appliquéd wall-hanging created by Susie C.

Kate B. showed samples she made in a class on crayon batiks while she was traveling in Iowa.

Gail R. showed one of her bicycle-themed wall-hangings.

Glenda B. created the quilts shown above for her grandchildren. She had taken them to a quilt shop and told them to pick out fabric for their quilts. Her grandson, unhappy about having to go to a quilt shop, chose the theme of a computer game.

Kay F has been busy making not only beautifully stitched appliqué quilts, but also sewing a tablet cover and a mini-quilt.

After Mary's husband had watched her make so many small quilts for the guild's Teddy Bear Tea, he asked her to make him a quilt. She created this quilt for him.

Shirley enjoys finding "treasures" that others have discarded and giving them new life.

This baby quilt was made by a new guild member.

Jane's fireweed quilt will add a cheerful spot of color to anyone's wall.

Sandy showed two of the dolls she has made. She announced that she will again give lessons to anyone interested on the fourth Thursday sew and chat.

The next guild meeting will be on May 15--a Travel Show and Tell program. Members are asked to bring an item found on a trip, to show something made using that item, and to tell about the item's inspiration for the quilter.
