May 5, 2017, Day Group Show and Tell

Bonny's birch tree and moose wall-hanging is one of 6 original birch tree quilts she has created for a show at Doriola's in July.

Regina showed a comfort quilt.

Another comfort quilt is ready for distribution to a local charity.

Emiko is learning to quilt on a new sewing machine. She made this cute comfort quilt.

Glenda took both of Esterita Austin's classes. In the Painting for Illusion class, she added birch trees to her Anchorage scene.

Glenda created this wall=hanging in the Esterita Austin portrait class.

Harmony spent a year finishing this 112" x 112" wedding quilt. It was too large for her frame so she had to hand quilt it in 2 halves.

Joan and Mary showed two appliqué wall-hangings created by Jan who needs to move to Colorado as a result of illness.  The guild members will greatly miss Jan's beautiful appliqué and quilting, as well as her generous involvement in guild activities.

Joan created this vibrant quilt from blocks she bought at Jetta's garage sale.

Karen showed Mary A's Teddy Bear Tea quilt (above) and her own contribution to the service project (below).

Linda's red and white quilt, titled "Age of Aquarius", was based on a 1910 pattern.  I wonder if she got  dizzy quilting it.

Lynne created this quilt using the critters her daughter's fifth grade students made based on the  Disgusting Critters children's book.

Marilyn's lively quilt is a wedding gift.

Nancy showed a satin envelope which she made for the Newborns in Need project. The envelope will hold keepsakes for the parents of a newborn who has died.

Nancy's quilt made with sun printed fabric is a donation for the Alaska Sudan Medical Project.

Robyn has created another beautiful appliqué quilt.

Ruthe also took Esterita Austin's painting class and created this wall-hanging which she backed with foil.

Ruthe tested one of Gail's quilt patterns--"On the Go".

Sandy individualized Esterita Austin's landscape pattern, leaving Anchorage out of the picture.

Shirley found a cross stitch project to keep busy since she has sold her TV and is moving to Arizona. The guild will miss Shirley's contributions to Show and Tell.
