Show and Tell with Friends

One of my favorite things about getting together with my quilt friends is Show and Tell. We always remember to bring our latest projects to share. Of course, we ooh and aah and we all want to make every quilt we see! 

Our recent reunion was no exception. Pam, Anne, Karen, Tisha and I have been swapping blocks for a year and this trip was a chance for us to all be together again. I wanted to share some of the great show and tell quilts with you.

Pam joined the Jo's Little Women club at her local quilt shop and made the quilt on the left. The quilt on the right was a Jo Morton pattern in American Patchwork and Quilting magazine last Fall-Pam made it in Jo's fabrics too.

The quilt on the left is called "Across the Wide Missouri" and was made from the patterns in the Kansas City Star newspaper. Anne swapped Churn Dash blocks with a friend and made this beautiful pink and brown quilt on the right. 

Karen held her quilt so high that we can't see her face :( These T blocks were a swap that 6 of us did with each other when we went to the Houston Quilt Show in Nov 2010--Karen is the first of us to put them together, so she wins the prize! Job well done, Karen!

I love Show and Tell, but more than that--I love spending time with friends.

Happy Quilting!
