Sew and Share April 2019

Gail shared her Strip Quilt. She had made it for her nephew, but liked it too much, so she's keeping it for herself:
Irena showed her wall quilt, Pictures, which she designed using prints from framed pictures.

Irena also shared her quilt, Giraffs #2, a follow up from her other giraff quilt, this time with flowers.

Teri showed a baby quilt that she designed and made for a mom-to-be of a friend.

Teri also shared her quilt, Musical Waves, which she designed using Grunge fabrics that she bought at a quilt show in Indiana.

Anne showed her twin quilt, Flower Glass, from Missouri Star. It was machine quilted by Tella.

Tella shared her quilt, We are the People! She designed and made this quilt for a die-hard Glasgow Rangers fan for a 60th birthday.

Carole showed her lap quilt, Let's Go Sailing, made from the sailing block for a church bazaar.

Anne shared her lap quilt, which she made as a sample for her HST class.

Anne also showed her HST quilt, Dream.

Helen also showed a baby quilt, Elephants, made for the Comfort Quilts.

Carole shared a half-square triangle placemat that she made in Anne's HST class.

June showed her quilt, Bits & Pieces, a traditional HST design, that she made with pieces found on the free table.
