Show and Tell from Last Week...

I have some fun show and tell to show from a couple of quilty meetings from last week.
First up is from Yo-yo Mama's at Material Girls and this is Shanna's dresden blocks.


Don't you just love the colors and fabrics?
Shanna says that she has been going a little dresden crazy and can't stop making them...


She also brought a lap quilt that she made from a kit that she bought at Broadbents...



On the back is minky in the most gorgeous butter yellow.
I took a close up hoping you could see the fabulous quilting...I love it.

This is the cute label on the back...along with a yo-yo.
After all, we are the yo-yo mama's!


Next up we have Pat with her gigantic but adorable pincushion...
yes...I said pincushion.
Pat said it just kept growing and when she had finished she decided it could be a tuffet!
We all had a great giggle with her and I suggested that she use it for her knitting needles instead of sewing needles and pins...lol.
Pat also wore her new jacket that she made to show us. She also made a flower to match...she looks adorable don't you think?


This is Pat's block for this month. It's from the book Egg Money Quilts and we are all making our own Egg Money quilt during this years yo-yo mama's.


Rosanna also made a minky quilt and brought it for show and tell. She appliqued flowers on the front...

...and she also used minky on the back.


A few close ups for your viewing pleasure....


Rosanna also finished her "Apron Club" quilt from Bee in my Bonnet (yes, that's me!)...and wanted to show it off because she is so proud of her accomplishment...it's her very first applique quilt and I think she did a fabulous job.



Below is the back of the Apron quilt. She used some leftovers from the aprons to piece part of it.
These are the blocks that we have done so far for the egg money quilt...











Okay...that was Yo-yo Mama's and now I'll move on to Clothesline Club.
below is my dear friend Rae Ann in her adorable new/old apron that she made.
it's from a vintage pattern in her collection.

Rae Ann always looks adorable...because she is!



She is showing us some of her vintage patterns.

Below is a quilt top that Karen pulled out of her closet that she pieced several years ago and has not quilted yet...and when I say pieced, I mean HAND pieced...WOW Karen...you always amaze all of us at Clothesline club with your skills!

I, of course love it and all of the patriotic scraps of fabric. I remember when this fabric came out but I can't remember what it's called.
I really think that the light gold background sets off the stars perfectly.

Close ups for you again...


Next is Michelles quilts...a large table runner...

...and the very large floral quilt below.
Michelle always does a beautiful job and is our over-achiever of the group...lol!


Kathleen brought this quilt that she just finished for one of her grandaughters...
It's such a fun quilt...

...and as you can see, Kathleen is such a fun lady!
I always have a great time going to my clubs and seeing my friends and thier show and tells...I hope you enjoyed it and have a quilty day too!

Wow, what a fantastic show and tell! I couldn't possibly come up with a favorite, but I have to say that I am in love with that pincushion!! Big yes, but it sure can hold tons of pins. And of course, I love RaeAnn's Apron. Just too cute!

Cardygirl said...

Ok, there is just too much in this post for me. I like so much of what I'm seeing. That pincushion should enter a contest! I've never seen anything like it. Amazing, cute and funny. I loved the minky back and the quilting. I 've used that edge to edge pattern before. The jacket is awesome. I want to make that egg money block. THIS MOMENT! The dresdens are incredible. I made a dresden this weekend. But I can't show it. Remember I'm working on a dresden project for next market. But seeing the dresdens makes me happy. I know I forgot something I was going to say but this is a long comment so I'll be done.

Thimbleanna said...

Wow! What a great show and tell. I LOVE those dresden plates -- and that hand pieced quilt is pretty darn cool!

quiltmom said...

What a show and tell- the Tuffet is too funny- instead of the Little Engine that could it could be the cushion that grew and grew.. Your ladies look like a very fun group who enjoy playing and creating together.
Happy quilting,
Regards,
Anna
