June Alpine Quilt Group

23 comments
I've been delinquent from our local Quilt Group for so many meetings. It seems something comes up either at the last moment, I'm too tired after work, or I just plain forget. So I really made an effort to get there this time, even though it was tough. And it was great. I was happy to see friends and get a dose of quilt injection.
We always have show-n-tell first. So these first quilts were from group members. Love the flag.
A Jan Patek design in lovely dark colors.
Embroidery placed in a quilt.
A quilt made with hopes to inspire a boy baby.
Love this "Going to Market" quilt. A favorite pattern.
Melissa's quilt. Monkey wrench I think? Not sure. Looks hard.
Aniva's flimsy.
Another Aniva flimsy ready for quilting.
Amber from A Little Bit Biased and her grandmother GiGi presented our trunk show. Amber's quilt pattern company is named after her grandmother. GiGi started out the show.
GiGi lived in Hawaii for 25 years and was the president of the LQG for a few years. She made this wonderful Hawaiian quilt. Fabulous!
She has been featured in a quilt magazine.
And her quilts are ALL HAND QUILTED!
This was my favorite from the show of GiGi's. Look at that hand quilting. It makes the whole design pop. The motion is wonderful. No wonder it was a winner at the Springville Quilt Show.
Amber was next and showed us some of her quilts. Amber lives in Alpine and has a cute family and works at the LQS, Just Sew.
This quilt used all dot fabrics.
This is Amber's first quilt made with GiGi's help.
This is a flimsy of GiGi's. I was talking (my bad) so I didn't hear everything but isn't this amazing.
Amber and GiGi have similar quilts made like this.
This is Amber's zig-zag quilt. Also a rainbow.
Sweet quilt by Amber and I was negligent in my photo taking. You can see I sat in the middle/back. But Amber is far right with white shirt. She's a cutie.
Love the tight snow balls from Amber.
This is a pattern of Amber's made in this colorway.
And then made in this colorway. Both beautiful.
I really like this wall hanging. It is so cute and the fabric enhances the pattern. It is an Amber design.
Another quilt and pattern by Amber. Love love this one.
Another Amber quilt and a pattern.And another Amber design. Looks hard but worth it.
This is my favorite quilt of Amber's. When I went to Quilt Market and visited Amber in her booth I decided I wanted to make this quilt for a boy grandson/grandnephew when and if that happens. And if not, I'll make it anyway.
At the end of the night Amber had a drawing for free patterns. And guess what?! My name was called first. I was lucky enough to get my 3 favorite Amber pattern designs. I really love them. Fabulous. Thanks so much Amber. Loved the trunk show from GiGi and Amber.
Cindy from Riley Blake fabrics was there with the wonderful Riley Blake bike and I was lucky enough to get a Roly Poly of the really cute Christmas Fabric called Christmas Candy. Lucky me. It is July and time to think of Christmas, right? Cindy told our group about the contest going on at Riley Blake for great prizes including the cute bike. Contest rules are here. All you have to do is submit a photo with your favorite quilt made from Riley Blake fabric. I have got to finish Lori's Cherry Cheesecake quilt so I can enter! I am sure I will make the deadline. Speaking of my quilt...I gotta go work on appliqueing those daisies. Have a great day.

I have started my Riley Blake quilt. i am hoping to get it done. I blogged about it just yesterday.
It has 638 circles, so i have to go applique me some circles, good luck with yours.

Sherryl said...

I bought that quilt pattern with the arrows too... with the same thought. If I don't have a grandson, nephew, etc. come soon, I'll make it for myself! Adorable.
P.S. I hate to show my ignorance, but... what is a "flimsy"?

Thanks for the fabulous quilt show, Nanette! That rainbow 9 patch of Gigi's is amazing!

Belinda said...

Wow...my head is just swooning round and round!! I can just imagine how wonderful all these quilts were in person!! My favorite is the one you said was your favorite of Gigi's too!
The hand quilting caught my eye immediatly, especially the fact that she quilted 7 rows to her baptist fans, usually I just see the fans in rows of 5.
I also like the one next to last photo!!
Great show and thanks for sharing!
I'm all inspired now!!!
