June 2018 Show & Share

Here are the yummy quilts members shared at the June meeting!

Darlene made a striking design from charm packs and layer cakes.

...and here's the other side

That's Natalie hiding behind an oversized modern log cabin...

Natalie also made this hexagon quilt in her continuing quest to use up her stash!

Dawna's "Happy Camper" quilt, which she finished while on a camping trip. She wanted red thread for the label and hadn't brought any, so she unraveled some stitching from her red hoodie... now that's dedication!

Dawna also made this quilt, featuring Tula Pink "Moonshine" fabrics, for her daughter's birthday...

... and she completed this mini for the Riley Blake challenge, called "Banff Beauty."

Michelle made these pillows from her own hand-dyed fabrics, and did some beautiful ruler work in the quilting.

Cindy's first time making a tote was a great success!

This quilt-as-you-go, called "Easy Does It," was made by Ursula from her own pattern.

Christine's paper pieced beauty was made from scraps

Jay's latest finish, made from a kit bought online from Saskatchewan.

Carol said she "finally brought something finished!"  The pattern for this quilt is from the book "Accentuate the Negative: Making the Most of Negative Space in Modern Quilts" by Trisch Price.

And here are the block lotto blocks, in just one of several possible layouts. Anne was the lucky winner
