I’m part of a group of wonderful quilters. We have get-togethers once a month where we chat, eat lunch, and share our latest projects. Today was the meeting for August, and it was wonderful! There was lots of gorgeous show-n-tell.
Yvonne’s quilt. Bright, happy colors.
Another quilt by Yvonne. I love the prints! Very good use of stripes, too.
Linda’s quilt. I like the border fabric. Linda’s hiding behind the quilt.
Micheilann’s “Five Dollar Quilt” – I missed the details on this, but it seems there was a shop-hosted BOM of some kind where you only pay $5. According to Micheilann, it ended up being a LOT more than $5!
Lorraine makes beautiful hand-applique quilts.
Lorraine also made this quilt, which was incredible. Each one of those ladies blocks are cross stitched.
I cannot imagine how much work this was – I tried cross stitch ONCE and gave it up after about half an hour.
She collected the series but didn’t want to put them in frames, so she hung on to them until she found the perfect quilt pattern to put them into.
They are just fabulous. (I was taking pictures at an angle, if you’re wondering why they look skewed.)
Susan made a tuffet. She was very pleased with it, and she should be! It was a hit.
A tuffet-making class is a distinct possibility for our next retreat!
Susan also brought her Dresden Plate she had started while we were at retreat in December. It matches her tuffet! She used a wool batt in this quilt and absolutely raved about it.
Another quilt made by Susan. I believe this is a Judy Niemeyer design.
I love this feathered star variation! Susan said she wanted to make an easier feathered star. I see one of these in my not-too-distant future!
Here’s one of Gail’s quilts. Interesting sashing! This was a challenge quilt.
Another Gail quilt. She made this for Quilts of Valor.
Gail attended a shop hop with Susan (on the left) and NONE of the fabrics from any of the shops matched or had a common theme. So she over-dyed several of them to tone them down or put them in similar color families. I thought this was a brilliant solution!
Hope you enjoyed my little group’s show!
