Some Extra Quilts

Here are just a few more photos I found of quilts that I saw but weren't shown at the show and tell.

This is Lynn's Phebe quilt in process.  

Kathy showed me these quilts that she had in her room.  Besides being a quilter, Kathy does awesome counted needlepoint designs.  She designs her own patterns that can be seen at  She also blogs at

I believe the logs were 1/2 inch finished on her log cabin quilt.

I love looking at the fabrics in scrappy quilts.

This is Cindi showing her little quilt top.  I love the setting.

Hope you are finding some time to stitch.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

My Show and Tell

This was my show and tell at the Friday night retreat.  A couple of the girls asked me to show my Road 66 quilt top.  The pattern is from Di Ford's Primarily Quilts book.  We have a lot of Di Ford fans in our group.  

Orca Bay - Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt from 2011.

My Rotherfield Greys quilt another pattern from Primarily Quilts.  

My Dear Jane.  I have worked on this on and off for years (about 10 or 12), and it is now quilted and bound.  

My crown is a little crooked, but that's me.  It has become tradition that when you show your finished Dear Jane at the retreat, you wear the tiara while you are at the microphone.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.

This one has a lot of her signature blocks in it.

And, her 30s orphan block quilt.

Show and Tell #1

Here is the first group of quilts from our Friday evening show and tell at the Dear Jane Retreat in Shipshewana, Indiana.

My apologies as I couldn't keep track of most of the owners of these quilts.  

I believe the first one is Jeanette's quilt.  She does awesome work.

If you want to see more of of Judy's quilts go to

One of five Dear Janes shown at the retreat.  (Mine is coming up in another post!)

Dear Jane number 2.  I seem to remember that this quilt was a top and still needed to be quilted.

Dear Jane number 3.  

More quilts tomorrow.  

Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you are finding some time in this busy season to sit and stitch awhile.
