Lighthouse Quilt Guild

October 11, 2021 Meeting in the Church. Lots of show and tell.

The Medallion Quilt Challenge Quilts were a special presentation tonight. Everyone worked so hard at the monthly information they were given to add a border to their Medallion Center. Each was asked what was the hardest border, many found them all very challenging but they all enjoyed making the border once they figured out what to do. Click on each picture to enlarge.

Most of us worked on a leaf for Ann Shaw’s workshop class but there is always one odd duck in the crowd. The leaves were very challenging, both to make and to find enough coordinated print fabric to use. Ann does not encourage plain fabrics. Loving the duck. Hopefully I can post more as people get them finished. Eleven of us took the class. Susan K. made the leaf on the left and Bobbie V. made the rooster.

We also had a fun night with “A gift to me – From me” . The guild purchased pieces of fabrics which each person could choose one for a $3 fee. You are then to choose 3 fabrics to add and show your finished item on May 9, 2022.

Show and Tell

The pictures below are from the Holland group of six women who get together with Carol to work on projects.

The first picture below shows Valarie’s medallion border project . The second picture then shows the detail of the second border which has a three dimensional aspect to it. She had two Prairie points join together with a red bead in the center. In that picture I have my finger underneath to better show off the bead. The third picture is the finished Officers Challenge project of Valarie. She created six additional blocks and then used flying geese for her Sashing strips. The fourth picture shows Kathy’s Officer Challenge quilt.

Marilyn C. shared this beautiful pieced top that she has been working on for quite a while. She hand pieces everything. I do not remember the name of it but it is something like the Village. The center shows the bigger buildings in the downtown, surrounded by many houses and then many different vehicles. The outside row has people of many different ages and from different countries. Marilyn said she is only partially finished with it. The last picture is Carole with another wonderful Quilt of Valor quilt.
