More Guild Panel Challenges

The unveiling of the guild challenge quilts happened a week ago at our monthly meeting.  The unveiling night is always so much fun as everyone gets to show and tell about their quilt for the first time since we were to keep it a secret until then.  We had 8 participate which is about normal and several of us had made two and my friend G made several pieces some that I showed in the last email.  Here are two more quilts she made with panels for this challenge.

This last quilt is one that G made too from a panel with houses.  She lined them up added yo-yos to embellish it and pieced the dental molding looking border.  The two quilts were machine quilted as were all the other pieces she made with the panel like mine.

A. also made two wall quilts from the panels for the challenge.  The first was a giant iris that she cut out and appliqued to her backing.  The second one has huge rick rack on the sashing seams and lots of embellishments. 
V. made two Christmas wall hangings from one panel.  She embellished the printed squares with beads, glitter, embroidery.  Her workmanship is so nice and they turned out so cute.
V’s sister S. also made two wall hangings and they were embellished with embroidery, glitter and beads.
D. found some panels in block form that have trees and wildlife on them printed in browns – they almost look embroidered.  She made a quilt that would be great to cuddle up with on the couch.  A very pretty quilt.
M. kept her panel intact and pieced the red and white border that resembles a candy cane then added a folded flange border in the middle of the outside border.  It was so cute.
Z. divided up her panel added borders and had it quilted.  I love seeing what panels members chose to use for their challenge.
M. made this wall hanging with a train themed panel for one of her sons.  The cute tree piecing added so much to the piece.  Love the skinny red border as it really sets off the train.
This is a second panel challenge that M made.  I just love the bird block and the diagonal piecing she did in the border.
It was fun and we all enjoyed a closer look at all of them after the meeting.  The details are wonderful.

Until Later,

Hi! found your site thru Pinterest, looking at your denim stocking - it's lovely! And that table runner with the salt box houses is just beautiful. I am very much into salt boxes and just love that one!
