Retreat Show and Tell

The highlight of our Shipshewana retreat is always Friday night Show and Tell.  I can't keep track of all the quilt makers and still take photos.  I thought I would post some of my favorites from the evening.

This Dear Jane is made of 2 inch finished blocks.  Barb Larson is the maker.

Lori became a Goddess and got to wear the crown to have her photo taken with her first Dear Jane quilt.

Val made this beautiful Dear Jane.  

Patty Harrants made this quilt.  I believe the pattern or something very similar is published in Brigette Giblin's Feathering the Nest book.

Patty's version of Dancing Dollies.

A beautiful applique' quilt made by Deb Rammelsburg.

Barb Larson's beautiful applique.  

Edith Shanholt's Affairs of the Heart quilt.

Nancy Martzolf's applique quilt.  The pattern is by Rosemary Youngs.

I don't know who made this quilt.  This is Antique Sampler pattern by Sue Daley.  

Rosemary Youngs is the maker of this quilt.  I believe it is a reproduction of an antique quilt that she either saw or bought (or both).  The pattern is available from her.  

This is my Antique Sampler quilt based on the Ohio Collection book by Anita Shackleford.  Anita was our guest speaker before show and tell.

My twisted bargello.  It has been a UFO for a good many years, and I finally pulled it from the stack and machine quilted it.  I still need to stitch the binding down.

This is a small hexagon wall hanging that I made as a challenge from Michelle, one of my friends from English Paper Piecing.

This Halloween quilt is from my UFO stack, too.  I would pull it out and add a little to it every October, and then it would go back in the stack.  This year I stitched the binding on and made the executive decision to machine stitch the binding down.  It is just a fun quilt, and I enjoyed having it out for Halloween.  The center redword witch is from Gay at   

If you'd like to see other photos from our retreat, here is the link to my photo albums.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.


  1. Fabulous show and tell LuAnn... and it looks like you made some good progress on some UFOs too :-)

  2. A great Show and Tell thanks for sharing

  3. So many amazing quilts to share from Retreat!
    I can't get over that quilt made with 2" Jane blocks - just remarkable!
    All of these quilts are incredible treasures!

  4. I think I said it out loud, 2" DJ, no way! That is incredible. You had some beautiful quilts to include in te show n tell. I'm sure they recieved the appropriate ooo,s and ahhh's. You must come home so totally revved up. I know I would.

  5. Two inch Jane blocks?!?! Is she insane? It must have been wonderful to see that in person. I love looking at Jane quilts, but have absolutely no desire to make one of my own.

  6. Beautiful quilts, amazing talented ladies! I can imagine you must be inspired, and relieved to have some finishes of your own. I went to Shipshewana a year ago this past Summer and loved every bit of it! I do hope to go again sometime: ))Thanks for sharing pictures LuAnn
