I hope by the time you read this that I am acclimating myself to new time zones and recovering from jet lag!
I also hope there will be a way to connect for live-from-Bali pictures, but if not – just know I’m having the time of my life on this trip to Bali.
Let’s continue the plan of 12 days of Show & Share with some gorgeous quilts that have been sent into me by readers.
First up is Jan C from Tyler, TX! This girl has been BUSY!
Jan’s Rectangle Wrangle found in Scraps & Shirttails II!
Wanted to send you pics of my latest quilts in the finished column.
The Rectangle Wrangle is made from some more of those sample shirt fabrics I got a couple of years ago. Still have a trash bag full, so another quilt is probably in the future.
Jan’s Fair & Square found in Scraps & Shirttails II!
Fair and Square was a blast to do. Everyone calls it Jan's quilt of Bazillion pieces. LOL. Also attached is pic of my back on Fair & Square. Use those scraps - YES MAM!
So looking forward to future string quilts from your new book.
Here is the pic of Jan’s back! I have to laugh, because I used all the extra checkerboard border by piecing it to the backing on MY quilt too! It’s easy to think you don’t have enough and keep piecing until you have way too much!
Jan’s Fair & Square backing!
Jan, you did me proud! I love your quilts so much ---why is it your plaids look so much better than mine? :c)
Next up ---Lorraine B from Australia!
Lorraine sent in photos of her first prize Roll Roll Cotton Boll!
Lorrain’s Roll Roll, Cotton Boll found in String Fling!
Just letting you know that I won First prize with my Roll Roll Cotton Boll quilt in my local CWA Exhibition this past weekend.
Thank you for offering these wonderful Mystery Quilts and other patterns on your site. I have nearly finished Orca Bay. I used aquas, oranges, black and neutrals.

And to round out today’s Show and Share we have Laura W!
Laura sent me an email with embedded photos from her Google+. I couldn’t save them individually, so I did a group screen clip!
My pineapple blossom quilt top is FINALLY COMPLETE! I started it in the class you taught in March in Virginia Beach. I’m happy with the way it turned out, and I used up a ton of scraps! Almost all of my bright green blenders are gone, and I used up all of the polka dot background fabric (actually ran short of it and filled in the corners with plain white). If your mystery this year has pink, green, or yellow, I may have to BUY some fabric.
Thanks for the great pattern! It is nice of you to post so many freebies on your site. I’ll be buying your new book this summer as a thank you.
I just LOVE the polka dots in this! What’s not to like about polka dots and orange? Great job, Laura!
Does this inspire anyone to get a UFO out and complete something, anything yet?! When I get back home I want to hear about what you finished while I was gone!
Now get SEWING!
