Show and Tell

We had some incredible quilts this month!

Here's Mary's gorgeous completely hand done Hawaiian Quilt


It's 17 years in the making completely hand appliqued quilted and bound.


Carol's adorable raccoons:


A little closer--aren't they adorable?!


Then her amazing (These were her Great Grandma's flowers that she's has put together into a quilt) Grandmother's Flower Garden 


The border is a darling tulip pattern.
Notice the sawtooth border that she made using
 the cut off corners of the yellow setting squares.


Then Chiska has this lovely embroidery quilt.
The embroidery was done by a neighbor or her mother.


Isn't the embroidery exquisite?!


Then there's a Jelly Roll Race 2 Quilt
It went together pretty quickly (though it was longer than an hour for her and don't forget to watch your bobbin!)  and a lap size only takes one jelly roll--or 2 junior jelly rolls.
Here are the links to the Missouri Star Quilt Company's
Videos:
Jelly Roll Race 2 (squares) (the one below is an example)


And a  baby quilt for a new niece


Gnome's!


This last one didn't come as it was already to it's new home.

Here's a picture of the turtle quilt that's finally done 3 years later!



Here's a close up.  




Here's Kathy's Sister-in-law's incredible Mexican Tree Quilt


Look at the amazing quilting!


Here's Sue's marvelous alter cloth:

Wasn't that an amazing group?!

Chiska's first "bigger" quilt quilted on her machine and best binding ever!

Kathy brought a caponizing set that was her Dads


Kathy brought pictures of some beautiful applique blocks that
her sister-in-law, Judy had made.


Carol made this darling mini quilt to display the pins they've collected from the national parks.



Here it is a little closer


Cami shared this great alpaca jacket with us and some wonderful pictures from Iceland


Mary shared her Italy and Greece trip and this beautiful crazy quilt


A little closer


She showed us how to  tie like she did this one


You stitch into the seam allowance so it doesn't come through the top.



Here is an example of a tying template.  And the shirt that started it all!
