Note to members: Your Show & Tell reporter is going to try to do a little more processing on the photos, as they come out pretty dark and it seems that some cropping helps remove the distractions and focuses on the quilt or other item being shown. At the same time, if I rush too fast to get a shot, your picture may be fuzzy, so please give me a chance to take a couple of shots to be sure I have a good one. Thanks.
Sarah showed us this cross colorful baby quilt. The design is from the Modern Plus Quilt book by Cheryl Brickey.
Second quilt from Sarah based on a free pattern from Cloud Nine website titled Chromatic. Very fun!
Sarah did this quilt from the scrappy quilt handbook that Chelsea provided all of us. Beautiful colors!
Laurie showed a cute flowery bag with red highlights.
Lorie also showed a quilt she made for her seven week old baby.
Laurie's third quilt dates from her time in Colorado. Nice colorful blocks!
Laurie's last quilt has a very cute kitten hiding in one of the blocks!
Diane finished this quilt at May retreat, double-cross pattern. Great color gradations.
This is the back of Diane's quilt using the same fabrics as in the front.
Lorie brought Emily and showed her first pieced top. Great job!
Lorie showed us this finish two years in the making that she is gifting to her neighbor for her expected baby girl.
Lorie's third very large quilt is this attractive diagonal pattern of smaller squares. A lot of work went into this!
Annick showed us this very cute spring landscape mini made with polka dot puffs.
Ellen completed this bright colored Christmas-themed quilt, that she has worked on at retreats. It is based on a So Fresh Quilts pattern, and she did her own layout. Ophelia helped with the quilting. Very cute!
A visitor showed us her finished quilt with orange lizards in the the quilting!
Kathy went to the Maine Quilt show and she got a gift basket from her friend.
Kathy also made this cover for her featherweight machine using the Essex Linen and incorporating the Singer panel.
Kathy's third show is a quilt used up a box full of selvedges, sewing them onto the telephone book paper. Bright and cheerful!
Alexandra showed the group a skirt she made and a purse for her mother. Very pretty fabric, lots of pockets and large!
Gail showed several projects. The first is her Mod Mountains quilt top, a pattern by Suzy Quilts.
Next is a small version of Elizabeth Hartmann's Greenhouse pattern that Gail won at the May retreat in Kennebunkport.
Gail's third is a fully quilted pattern she did with the help of her daughter using the Caturday fabric print. It was a lot lot of fun and daughter will enjoy it as it has cats, and she will be in no danger of allergies kicking up!
And the back of the Caturday quilt with some piecing including a selvedge piece identifying the fabric .
Ophelia has been very busy, and had a number of shows. First up was a grey and black log-cabin with diagonal black and grey strips, but she ran out of fabric.
So the next is another log cabin but emphasizing light and dark squares and much larger -- very dramatic!
Ophelia's third show is a pinwheel style using a Denyce Schmidt pattern quilted with her own design.
Next up is a grey and white quilt with gold highlights. The small white squares really pop out of the design.
Apologies for the out-of-focus shot, but this round jelly roll rug was very colorful and cute!
Ophelia finished her Gypsy's Wife quilt. Very nice contrast between the warm blocks and the grey background.
