Arizona Quilter’s Guild Spring Meeting 2013

Have I told you that Show and Tell is my favorite part of every guild meeting?  I love seeing what quilters create!  But I had no idea what was in store for me at this meeting – a special show and tell featuring quilts with Flying Geese and birds in my honor!  What a treat!  Sadly, my camera batteries died right as the first quilt crossed the stage, so these images were taken with my cell phone — not quite the quality to which I am accustomed!


Wanda Seale's "Little House of Geese!"

Wanda Seale’s “Little House of Geese!”

Wanda Seale had stitched up her rendition of “Little House of Geese” from the pattern that was published in American Quilter Magazine last summer.  I love the addition of the tassels and buttons!

Janet Grant Design

Janet Grant created this design using dramatic reds, blacks and white textured fabrics.  She used straight rows of geese to show off the strongly contrasting fabrics.

Barbara Nicholson's Design

Barbara Nicholson’s Design

Barbara Nicholson’s parrot design has won numerous awards and it was one of the hits of this show and tell.

Kaye Wood Design

A woman came up to say hello to me before the meeting began.  I just knew that we had met before and said so to her.   She agreed and told me that she was Kaye Wood — the one and only!  What a surprise it was to meet her in Payson, Arizona.  She has largely retired from teaching travel and enjoying travels just for fun.  But, she’s still busy making patterns and showed off her new bird house design at Show and Tell.

In all, a great meeting!  I do have one final image to share in a couple of days.  It’s on my regular camera which is packed away for my next trip.  You’ll like the story that accompanies that quilt!
