March Flaunt Your Finish

With spring came a burst of enthusiasm from our members! We received info for so many great finishes, so many with personal meaning.

Donna sent in two very special finishes. The first is a gift for her daughter- a t-shirt quilt made up of all of her softball shirts, spanning 17 years! How sweet! She looks thrilled.

The second is her first Quilt of Valor, made for her son in law's father. He recently received a terminal cancer diagnosis, and she was able to make and present this to him, including some of the patches he received during his service. Here he is receiving it with this son. What a precious gift and memory. She said everyone teared up and I believe it- I am now!

Agnes has spring fever, which influenced her colors and projects. 

First, she hacked the Modern Quilt Guild pattern of the month by Anne Sullivan and made a table runner. She promises us the dimensions, soon!

These cute placemats have me itching for a road trip.

And she sent a great picture of a quilt she pattern tested for Gina at Happy  Garden Quilt Collection- available here!  SPRING!

Becca took a class with Gail Garber at the Oklahoma State Guild Spring Retreat, and learned some great paper piecing technique. Stellar!

Chaunda had some great finishes this month, too. She made this stunner for their guest bedroom- so modern!

 She also made this chic but easy baby quilt for friends at church. Love those colors!

Celeste, who had a fantastic binding demo at our last meeting, said these are all she's been able to finish in a while, and reminds us of her excellent binding tip- 12" gap on the quilt and 10" tails on the binding!

What a fantastically talented group we have. Thank you for sharing, everyone! Can't wait to see you at our April 11th meeting- at THE VILLAGE LIBRARY (change from regular venue).
