May Show N' Tell

It was another great month of Show N' Tell in May! Our Summer WIP challenge is in full swing and many projects brought to show in May were entered into the raffle for a gift card to Quilted Threads. What better incentive to finish works in progress than the prospect of new fabric!

The first show from VP Chelsea is a baby quilt she made with our Janome blocks.

Her second show is another charity quilt, this time for the Make a Wish Foundation

The back fabric of this quilt is the same as the front, the front is just fussy cut to make fabulous shapes!

Sandy made these cute knitting bags

Kathy made a holiday wreath and a table runner that both look great. As an added bonus she used colors that are out of her comfort zone. Great job Kathy!

Gail was gifted this Wax Cotton from an exchange student staying with her. As a garment sewer I (Carolanne) think this would make a great shirt or shirtdress!

Marie made placemats and wine coasters for her step daughter who is getting married.

Susie made two beautiful quilts this month, including her Riley Blake challenge rainbow quilt. 

Janice made this chevron beauty with her new bloc loc ruler.

This is the first quilt that Betsy machine quilted, great job lady!

This is a round robin quilt that Annick started in 2011. Each row represents a different person and there's even a piece of her wedding dress on this. What a great keepsake! 

This other piece from Annick was from a class she took with the Singing Quilter.

Annick was on fire for May and also made this hexagon quilt that has pieces that represent her and each of her brothers. 

Beth also made a baby quilt for charity using the Janome blocks we worked on earlier this year.

Here's the strip from my feather's quilt that is still a work in progress. I spent almost the entire retreat working on these blocks so I really wanted to share my first strip.
