Here is a lovely table runner from a simple pattern, made by Ann for Martha. Table runners were a popular item at our Show-and-Tell this year.
Our regular Show-and-Tell is always like going to a quilt show, but you get to hear the stories behind the projects and quilts. Here is a quilt that Ann brought in. She had inherited a quantity of old calico prints from a deceased friend, and used them to make this quilt. Those old fabrics can still make charming quilts!
Here is an old UFO finished by my friend Michelle. It was a Row-by-Row project from this group, probably started back in the 90's. She used a variegated thread in a spiral meander. The little squares on the border contain signatures of the RBR participants.
Five members of CyberBee worked on "fractured" or "slice" quilts. They each chose a picture or poster and divided it up for each member to create a part. Then they are put together. Diverse methods are used, but they all seem to go together beautifully!
JoAnn's is finished.
Dorothy has constructed the top and is ready to quilt.
Jean's top is also complete. Some of those oranges are dimensional. I love the pitcher!
This week I am getting ready to have all the Turners (my side of the family) over for dinner on Saturday. We usually have about forty people. I hope my grandchildren will get over their colds so they can come up. I am trying to at least have the house all ready in case I need to run down to South Carolina and do some emergency babysitting this week. It is so hard to work when your children are sick.
