It’s been a while since I’ve shared show and tell projects from our customers so I thought I’d get caught up a little. We’ve seen some really beautiful and thoughtful projects coming through that just have to be shared!
This is Nicole showing her Blooming 9-Patch that she entered into her guild’s “green” challenge. The colors and fabrics Nicole used in her quilt represent the earth’s sustainable resources – water, trees, grass, etc. But the quilting is the most amazing part of this project! She quilted the center as a “globe” of the Earth, quilting the continents, and throughout the quilt she had quilted leaves and other natural elements. Around the outside she quilted footprints, representing the human “footprint” being left on the earth through our use and misuse of the earth’s resources. It is truly an amazing quilt, with a lot of “green” thought in its design.
Judy (L) brought in this t-shirt quilt to share with us which she made for her boss whose husband had died. The quilt is made with the husband’s Harley Davidson t-shirts and I had helped Judy pick out the sashing and background fabrics a while back. The quilt turned out terrific and is a true keepsake for the family. The quilt pattern is Quilted to a “T” by Little Black Dog Quilt Co.
Bernie (L) and Rose (R) are in our Beginning Quilting class, and this is their first piecing effort! They did not know each other before the class began and chose their fabrics independent of each other. I’d say they have the same tastes, you think!?!?! This Beginner Quilting class has been so much fun, the peals of laughter coming from upstairs each Saturday afternoon have everyone commenting on what a great time they must be having!
This is Bernie, too, with a banner project that she offered to make for her church. She’s not letting any grass grow under her feet! Her enthusiasm and new-found love of quilting are an inspiration to all of us each time she enters the shop! Keep it up, Bernie!
We love Show & Tell at Sweet Home so bring those projects in to share! I often say that I have to quilt vicariously through my customers since my quilting time is so severely limited! I love seeing what you’ve created.
