Quilt Guild January Newsletter

We are excited to start a new year of quilt guild! We had a great turn out for our first meeting. Lisa S is our president this year and has some fun new ideas for us to participate in. We will be having a monthly mini trunk show from one of our members, a paper bag swap, and a new UFO competition.

Snow Goose- Snow Goose is fast approaching and will be on February 25th and 26th. For more information and to see a complete schedule of events visit the guild website. ( click on the link to the right of this page!)

Mini Trunk Show by Lisa S.

This quilt was made years ago from two guild swaps, a nine patch and an hour glass.
A favorite bulls eye quilt

These next quilts were made by Lisa's great grandma on a seep ranch in Southern Utah. She thinks that she probably used whatever fabric she could find available to her including clothing.

The yellow quilt was washed and the wool batting shrunk. Lisa unpicked the quilting replaced the batting with an antique batting and requilted the quilt.

The last quilt was made by her husbands grandma. They are not sure what the pattern is, so if anyone has seen this block and knows the name of it let Lisa know!

Last was a favorite quilt done in the triple treat pattern
