Our last guild meeting was a special one with Debbie and Lisa from The Fat Quail Quilt Shop displaying some very doable and interesting quilts and wall hangings.
A few posts ago you may have seen my baby panel quilt.  Simple and fun.  But Debbie's shop models, which she is so good at keeping up with,  showed us a number of ways to create panel quilts of interest.  Most of the borders she created herself.

Then Nancy a guild member put together these panels for her little grandson.   Adding a variety of pieced sections.
Very striking.  Very artful.

 Lisa who has her own beautiful pattern line also teaches printing and painting on fabric.  Gelatin plate printing is her most recent fascination.  She is available for classes.
Just contact The Fat Quail Quilt Shop.   Her work is incredible.

This she created from a photo.

And then there is the Home Quilt.
She did a complete history on this and incorporated even the couples' marriage license in text.   It has appeared here before but can't resist showing you again.

Cheryl presented a challenge to the guild . . "Reflections of Water".
Hers has not been quilted yet but she showed us what that phrase means to her.
Rippling water with different shades of blue.  The half square triangles assembled to appear like rings in the water.  Just click on the photo to see how incredible this really is.
 A smaller challenge quilt was also shown. 
So what would your "Reflections of Water" quilt look like?
