The State Quilt Guild challenges each guild to make charity quilts, our wonderful guild members really outdid themselves.  Here are 27 quilts that were donated to the Gentle Ironhawk Women's Shelter here in Blanding UT.

Our guild was asked if we could help make some receiving/small blankets to be taken to Africa, over 50 were made and one their way.

Each year our guild makes "Service Quilts"

October 2015 Guild Meeting

The theme for our meeting was to bring a favorite pattern or Christmas give-away idea.

Deb Bayles, Debbie Christiansen, Cathy Cosby showed off theirs in the form of tissue box covers, hexagon coasters, table place mats, hot pad/recipe/spatula holder.

Bonnie Richardson our State Guild Rep, shows off her pumpkin place mats.

Bonnie Meyer is a mom, grandma, great-grandma and she makes something for all of them for Christmas, here are a few of the 100 pillowcases she is making.

 Bonnie was laid up this spring/summer with a bad leg so she had alot of time on her hands, she filled it up very nicely.

Kathleen Lyman and Bonnie are sisters, they are always up to something good.  Here Kathleen has made 100 bags and taught her sister to love them too.

Kathy Hurst has put out other master pieces.

Carol Fredere has taken to striping and is quite good at it.

  Eve Lyn Perkins helped out her friend Holly Walker who pieced together the middle of this quilt and Eve Lyn did the boarders, Gayle Shumway did the longarm quilting
