We had AWESOME show and Share in class right after our lunch break!
This is Faye and her wonderful free wheeling layout of Scrappy Trips from the Free Patterns tab!
I love it when you bring quilts to share with us, be it something you made inspired by one of my designs, or from another pattern…BRING IT!
By the time lunch is over we’ve been working hard for 3 hours, our bellies are full, and we lumber back to our machines when we’d really be liking to curl off with these quilts for a nap about that time – so Show & Share gets us excited all over again. We are inspired by the colors, the stories, the fabrics, the quilt patterns ---and then we are charged up and ready to hit our machines again.
So if I am coming to your group, you don’t need a reminder or invitation to bring something for lunch time show & share – just bring it!

AHA!! Roberta’s crumb strips!
Remember those crumb strips I was doing on Quilt-Cam a while back? They are slated for a book project and are on hold right now…so Roberta took hers and pieced them into this wonderful top! I LOVE THIS!
Can’t wait to see how this one turns out, Ramona!
There are more photos. I took a LOT of photos! I’ll share the rest with you tomorrow since we are likely on overload and raring to go sew already.
One more day home --- Michigan tomorrow! I checked the weather, and it is supposed to be in the 70s all this week in Sault Ste Marie! Whoot! Is there leaf color yet? I’m longing to see some lovely reds and golds and all the beauty of autumn splendor.
Busy day to get ready ahead ---but I did move my hoop on my hand quilting project…check it out:
All the happy stitches!
Each hoop move gives me a new view!
If you are interested in the story of how this quilt came together, I searched for links.

This is hopefully the winter this quilt becomes a FINISHED OBJECT instead of an unfinished object. Life sometimes gets in the way, but I really want to spend some evening time here and there wrapped under this quilt, hand quilting away.
Have an awesome Tuesday, everyone!
