June Quilt Circle of Friends

We just had another great gathering of the friends. We started our evening with a review of our Little Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.
The actual maker of this quilt is unclear but, it won our Best of Show ribbon because it gave us the best chuckle.

By viewers choice, this quilt. pieced by Bonnie Nelsen and quilted by Julia Swallow, got the most votes, making it #1.

Both pieced and quilted by Tricia Beal Snyder, this batik quilt came in 2nd.

And wouldn't you know! The two most competitive (in a friendly way) quilters I know tied for 3rd place! Marty Klatt above and Bonnie Nelsen below.

I shared this leftover quilt block I converted to a little zip pouch for our library fund raiser. 

Wowzo! Nancy H. shared this quilt she has been working on for quite some time. Let me say it again - - - Wowzo!

Here's Joyce Scott's village quilt (above) and her animal challenge quilt below. 

And here is my animal block challenge quilt. Joyce and I both shared our quilts at the meeting to show off the nice job of machine quilting done by QC member, Deb Semmens.

Theresa finished this winter quilt for her log cabin bed. All flannel and all quilted on her domestic sewing machine. A big job, very well done.

- - - - and the matching shams.

Nancy J. finished 2 t-shirt quilts and they are ready to present.

She showed us how she utilizes necklines and armholes as needed. Really adds the cute factor, too.

I introduced our Dallas County Fair quilt. These blocks were made and displayed in a challenge at our 2015 Little Sister's Outdoor Quilt Show.

This year, the blocks were displayed as a finished quilt! It will be sold at auction at the Sponsor's dinner, the night before the Dallas Co. Fair opens in July this summer.

Proceeds from the sale of this quilt will be used by Dallas County 4-H to help send kids to camp that cannot otherwise afford to go. We are told there is a big need for these funds and are so happy to help.

Many of your made and donated these blocks. It was pieced by me (Jacque Johnson) with fabric donated from Adel Quilting. Kathy Blomquist donated the machine quilting and Carol Piziali donated the binding. It takes a village - - - - Thank you to all who helped.

Always a treat to gather with my quilt circle of friends. Special thanks to Jackie Orton for taking all these pictures!
