Some of the designs submitted for  quilts:
 
Jennifer

Susan had two

 
Alice had two
 


Kaye made the large size so we made it into a smaller kids size
 

Kristina
 



Emily
 

Kelly had two ideas from her son. One was the shield
and one was a smiley face but with the cat fabric I had it came out as a cat!
 
 
Megan
 
Last but not least MaryAnn with the winning design! Her design was written up and will be made into kits for the Lincoln Quilts for Kids group.
Some of the designs were made up into actual quilts by Kris Jarchow in her own fabric and interpretation as test quilts.  All of the designs submitted were looked over for ease of cutting and use of fabric.  The final determination was not only about ease but also about modern design. Mary Ann's design has so many possibilities. Thanks for all who participated!!!

June Meeting - Dying to quilt


June 2nd meeting we will be featuring Mary Dittenber and her adventures in dying fabric. 


Mary has been sewing and quilting for over 14 years and progressed into teaching.   Her interest in fabric manipulations started her on the path of dying fabric to use in her works.   I hope you will join us for this trunk show!


This is a picture of some of the dyed fabrics that were made with Mary's instruction.  :)

 
 
Reminder that our guild will be sponsoring a Victoria Findlay Wolfe quilting event at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum on June 14th.  Click HERE
 
Everyone is welcome to attend the IQSCM first Friday June 5 at 3:00. Sherri Lynn Woods will be giving a free presentation from her new book. Click HERE for more Information
