Yesterday at Yo-yo Mama's...

I took photos for show and tell. This first one is Shanna's signiture quilt from our Clothesline Club that she just finished. I am so in love with this quilt...ya'll know I'm a sucker for vintage 30's.....I took several shots for your enjoyment.




Here's Shanna with her quilt...you remember her right? She went to Idaho with us on the quilting retreat in September.
Just click on any photos for close up details.



The next quilt is another one of Shanna's that she made for her daughter....actually, it's more of a throw than a quilt, her daughter requested no batting for this one...so she just layered the front and the back.
The big squares really show off the vintage florals. Then she added yo-yo's (we are the yo-yo mama's) and buttons with bling! A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E !







The next quilt is Beth's that she worked on at the Idaho retreat....she had just picked it up from the quilters and was so excited to have it finished...all but the binding.
I don't blame her...it's absolutely gorgeous!






Here's a shot of the back....I wanted you to see the wonderful quilting.

Remember Juli's pinapple quilt that she started at the retreat? Well, she brought it to show us her progress...it's going to be a King quilt so she still has a ways to go,.... but I think she is doing a great job....don't you? This quilt will definitly be an accomplishment when complete....it's so fabulous.





The next blocks are Lucy's from my
Apron Club pattern....
she just has a few more to go until she can assemble the top....























Well...there you go, this months show and tell from Yo-yo Mama's Club!
Did you enjoy it?
Did my talented friends inspire you?....they inspire me all the time.

Love Shanna's quilt.
And Julie is a member of YoYo Mama's? Ask her to share with you her rotary cutter experience from Daniel's Summit. I was standing right next to her when it happened and I still can hardly think about it. Tell her I say hello!

Oh my goodness, these are all so beautiful. I am a yo-yo addict myself. My mil taught me to make yo-yo's before I ever learned how to quilt. You know the ones where you take a plate and draw a circle around it, cut the fabric and sew that little seam and pull the thread. Yep those were the good ole days :-) Love the pictures. A wealth of inspiration.

What beautiful eye candy. Would you know the pattern for Beth's quilt? I just love the pattern. Such talented ladies.

The details on the aprons - incredible. I really couldn't do that. Seriously. I love the 30s flower quilt too. I think the black and white really really really make that quilt. My new years resolution (one of them) is to use more black in my quilts.
