September 1, 2016, Program and Show and Tell

During a short program, Kate demonstrated the construction process for the Three-Seam Christmas Stocking that the Night Group makes as a service project.
In preparation for ALCQ's 2016 Great Alaska Quilt Show, Marilyn and Katy demonstrated the proper way to hang quilts on the racks. We expect to have a fantastic show on September 17-18 at the ConocoPhillips Atrium. Check the Annual Quilt show page for details.
Bonnie designed and created "Mermaid Kisses and Starfish Wishes" for a niece who is expecting. Bonnie's sister requested that the mermaid not have a head so that the child's head can fill that space.

Chris created this small wall-hanging using a block from a Teresa Ascone panel.

Chris created this reversible quilt in a class taught by Barbara Shapel. The machine stitching is done in a way that creates both a front image (above) and a back image (below). Amazing!

Darlene's visiting granddaughter made this small quilt to go with the floppy frog lying on the table.

Darlene pieced and quilted this modern table-runner.

Previously, Deb has made a quilt from her daughter's deceased friend's clothing. Using left-over fabric, Deb made this bowl for her daughter.

This Christmas wall-hanging is the result of blocks given Deb by the guild she belonged to in Michigan.

Members "oohed and aahed" over Deb's intricate quilting on this gift for her granddaughter.

Shiva paint sticks provide the color in Deb's small quilt for her granddaughter.

Delberta made this quilt for the Small Quilt Auction.

Jetta showed this quilt, one of her recent projects.

Jetta used the Stair Bender pattern for this quilt for her son.

Lynne's daughter-in-law bought this appliqu├ęd and hand-quilted beauty at an estate sale on Whidby Island for the huge price of $19.00. Below, Lynne is showing the pillow sham that came with it.

Marge is hidden behind this huge Hunter's Star quilt which she pieced.

Marilyn M shows a wall-hanging/clock which will be available for bidding in the Small Quilt Auction.
