Loose Threads: Back Home and Show and Tell

Back Home and Show and Tell

I'm back home from Shipshewana, and I had a great time.  Here is the pile that I brought back.  I had taken some things out of the pile, but I did end up bringing back more than I left with.

Here are a few photos of quilts from show and tell on Friday evening.  The quilts were just amazing. 

This is my personal favorite:  Stars and Sprigs by Eileen.  I have the pattern and have one block ready to applique'. 

Here is another of Eileen's quilt.  I know this quilt but at the moment can't recall the name.  Anyone?

Brenda's Texas Star quilt.

Trudy's 9981 quilt.  My photo doesn't do justice to the vibrant colors she used.

One of several Dear Jane quilts shown.

Margaret's Blessing quilt.  This pattern is on my to do list, too.  I just love this one.

Gorgeous red apple core quilt. 

Pam D made this Christmas stack 'n whack. 

A group of ladies each did their version of Aunt Millie's Garden.  This is just one of several that were shown.

This is my Roll Roll Cotton Boll from Bonnie Hunter's 2010 on line mystery. 

I have lots more photos to show from the retreat.  Right now here in the US we are getting ready for Thanksgiving Day and the dinner that many of us cook. 

More soon.  Until next time...

Thanks for visiting!

The quilt without a name is a pattern by Kim McLean featured in the book "The Fabric of Society Australia's Quilt Heritage From Convict Times to 1960" by Annette Gero. It is possibly the Sarah Evans quilt. Love your blog and especially your Show and tell. We here in Australia really enjoy seeing your wonderful quilt shops etc
