Phoenix Modern July / Part 2

Here are a few more Show and Tell from The Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild meeting on Saturday.
As I mentioned in yesterday's post we were asked to bring a quilt that represented our personal style, and then another quilt that has provided a challenge.

Patty has really enjoyed fusible applique, and had a lot of fun putting together this tulip wall hanging.

Patty also asked for suggestions on the best way to quilt a fusible applique.
There are so many new things to learn with quilting, even for those who have been sewing for years.

One visitor said this is her second quilt she has made.
We hope she joins us again, and keeps trying new things.
A tee shirt quilt is a gift for her son.


Cute Alyssa (Pile O' Fabric) is a young mom who is making so many fun things. She has only been a quilter for a few years, but I can see she has a real eye for color.
Alyssa is a web designer by profession, and has volunteered to be the web designer for our guild.

Her first few quilts are baby quilts for her children.
She even machine quilts her own quilts.

As a web designer, Alyssa is familiar with using Photo Shop and designed the lettering for her son's quilt.
So wonderful to see these young women jump right into the industry and use their creative talents to start designing, plus bring fresh ideas to the quilting world.

I have the pattern for the big red flowers and I never have made it - haven't a clue why, I love it.
