Dear Jane Retreat Show and Tell Quilts

You know how your emails just kind of scroll off of your computer screen, and sometimes that means out of sight - out of mind.  Well, I do the same with my blog posts.  I add photos to a post that I plan to blog about, but a lot of times I don't get back to add text.  This is a post that I intended to publish after our Dear Jane retreat in Shipshewana last month.  I didn't want you to miss these quilts.  This group has a lot of amazing quilters.  Enjoy the show!

Tracy's Just Takes Two Quilt.  Pattern by Gay of www.sentimentalstitches.com and Brenda www.dearjane.com.   Here's the link to Tracy's blog, TLC Quilts and Walks.



Aunt Millie's Garden.  It's just beautiful.  I'm sorry I can't remember who the maker is.  Maybe Gretchen?   



I don't know the name of the quilt or maker.  I think this might be from the book Civil War Diary Quilt by Rosemary Youngs but not sure of the maker.  If anyone knows, email me.


Edyta Sitar's Common Bride.  


Dutch Treat quilt.


Easy Street  by Judy. (Easy Street is Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt from 2012.)  Visit Judy's blog, Small Quilts and Doll Quilts.  Judy used reds and greens for her Easy Street quilt, and she has set her blocks differently than the pattern.  It's just gorgeous.  


Here is another Easy Street Quilt.  This quilt is close to the colors that Bonnie Hunter used in her Easy Street Mystery quilt.  


Kim used a great color combination, and I think this quilt is made entirely from her stash.  Visit her blog Quiltmom here.  


This is Orca Bay, the Quiltville Mystery Quilt from 2011.  
 

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Thanks for sharing! I look forward to you and Rosemary posting show and tell. I don't often get pictures since I'm getting my exercise holding up the quilts. ;-) This reminds me too that I would like to try some Dutch Treat blocks again someday....

Thanks for posting these, LuAnn. Yeah, that Dutch Treat was amazing. The other ones that knocked me out were CJ's plum crazy and that Common Bride!
