Loose Threads: My Show and Tell

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.

Never mind a tiara you should have a crown befitting a true Quilting Queen! Your quilts are all absolutely fabulous. Only wish I could have been in the room to see them up close and personal. Maybe touch one... for luck and in the hope that some of your talent would rub off!
