A “Day of Love” 09/22/18

Saturday’s “Day of Love” (Community Service/Quilt ’til You Wilt) was a big success. Many projects were completed and other projects made great progress. There was a Veteran’s Presentation on Saturday, too.

A big thanks to Elsie for organizing the service day, to the Anonymous Donor(s) who gave the fabric, and to all who helped at Friday night’s set-up and/or Saturday’s event.

Here are some of the photos:

2018 — AUGUST PROGRAM and SHOW & TELL

PROGRAM:

Oh, wow, was this an awesome program! We learned so much about antique quilts, blocks, and colors. Barb Roberts did a fantastic job explaining vintage blocks and fabric, and she had lots of examples of colors that were popular in from 1850’s to 1879. And speaking of examples, Barb had three laundry baskets FULL of beautiful quilts, blocks, and books.

Sit back and enjoy a recap of Barb’s Program through photos, shown below. (The Show & Tell photos appear after these, so be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post.)

 

SHOW & TELL:

The August Show & Tell didn’t disappoint! We have so many talented (and funny) members. I know you’ll enjoy these photos.

  • Alice Allinson
    • Some time ago she was having a difficult time; she had sold her pharmacy and was working at Hy-Vee. She attended a retreat with Sandy Weber in St. Louis with other guild members. During the retreat everyone would work on whatever.  Others encouraged her to work on the block-of-the-month she had purchased at the quilt show; she had not sewn in four months (normally sews every day). Her quilt finally finished is “My ABCs of Therapy” done in bright colors and pale blue border.  This is a Janet Stone (from Overland Park) pattern and contains a sheep (typical of Janet’s patterns); Alice changed the borders. She is the only one of the group who finished the project.
  • Deb Freese
    • Shaded block table runner made from leftovers
    • Using a library book authored by Tula Pink and Angela Waters she tried different quilting designs which resulted in an appliqued block
  • Rose Marie Smith
    • Quilt using car fabric from the Community Service bin; this quilt is for Community Service
  • Joan Harrison
    • Quilt from the retreat; added more rows and used a different color to offset colored sections

 

2018 — JULY PROGRAM–Julie Prose

Our July Program featured Julee Prose, from Iowa. What a treat! Julie is prolific at creating appliqued masterpieces. The members were in awe of all of the quilts she showed. There were FOUR large suitcases of quilts! She was totally amazing!

Some of our members couldn’t make the meeting because of the County Fair and they asked that we post lots of pictures. Well, I hope this is enough. There are over 200 photos below. You’ll see the entire quilt and lots of close-up details. The photos are broken up into groups, to make viewing easier. Enjoy!  Be sure to click on the image to enlarge it.

2018 HOF Quilt Show

The 33rd Annual Quilt Show of the Hands of Friendship Quilt Guild was held at the William Matthew Middle School in Kirksville, Missouri, on June 1 and 2nd, 2018. Over 140 quilts were on display. Viewer’s Choice awards were given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each of 12 categories.

The theme of this year’s show was “Pass the Traditions… to Future Generations”. It’s so important that we pass the quilting traditions on to future generations. Part of the Community Service work the guild did earlier in the year was to help Kirksville area Girl Scouts.  Scouts learned about quilting and how to construct a block. Those blocks were on display at the show.

Other special displays included the Community Service corner with Beads of Courage bags, the raffle quilt, our annual Bed Turning, a display to honor Kathy and Stan East, and a display to honor Kimberlynn Bartlett. The highlight of the show was the Veteran’s presentation which honored five local area Veterans with special quilts made by several guild members.

In addition to all that excitement, there were over 12 vendors in attendance, providing a variety of quilting-related goodies for all. New this year, was “Nana’s Second Thoughts”, a booth with lots of unusual items for sale. These new and gently used items were donated by members throughout the year and beautifully packaged for resale.

After awards were presented, the 2018 raffle quilt winner was drawn. Andrea O’Brien was the lucky winner!
