We’ve had a busy week of show and tell here at the shop, so I thought it only fair to share with ya’ll who couldn’t be here to see these wonderful projects in person. Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
Debra created this really bright and fun crib quilt from a package of Baby Geniuses Grow Up charm squares and coordinating brights (we still have a few of these charm packs in stock!) Some lucky little one is really going to enjoy these bright pinwheels!
This is Robin’s red and cheddar star quilt – the picture does not do it justice, trust me! It is bright and vibrant, and perfectly executed with lots of fussy cutting for the star centers and the border. Robin quilted it on her APQS machine and did a terrific job with the quilting, too.
Sherry has been MIA for a while, but she finally brought this beauty in earlier this week to share. Turns out she’s been hanging out in Florida for several months! My photos of this quilt definately do not do it justice. The center blocks, which you can see a little better in the picture below, are all embroidered birds and birdhouses. Sherry had brought the embroidered blocks in last year and asked for help in deciding what to do with them; we fooled around with a couple of ideas and came up with the blue and yellow sashing in the center. Then she decided later to make it bigger so she added the surrounding blocks and borders to the center section. Can’t you just picture this on a white iron bed in a sunny yellow and blue bedroom???
Bea paid us a visit yesterday and she always has wonderful show and tell to share. She is a prolific quilter and does beautiful work.
This is one of her scrappy string quilts. I love how the blue and red sashings really pull all the scrappy colors together. Bea had just picked this one up from the longarmer, and she used a variegated thread to quilt it; it will be bound in the red fabric.
This is an applique quilt that Bea made using a published pattern in a magazine (sorry I didn’t get the magazine details!) The colors in the picture aren’t very true, the nine patches along the outside edge are done with black prints and blue prints, and all of the colors are really rich. We chose a blue and black stripe print for bias binding.
I hope you’ve enjoyed our little show and tell. We love it when our customers bring in their projects to share. Next time you’re coming to see us, bring something to share with us, too!
