Some Texas Showing & Sharing!

20150213_124950
There has been some really great showing and sharing during my time in Texas!

Quilting is Big Big Big in this Big Big state ---and we are passionate about all things quilting, fabric & thread!

The photos I am sharing are from the past several days, starting with my time spent with the Greater San Antonio quilt guild and visitors!

Of course, Grand Illusion is making its presence known as quilters finish tops, and get them ready for quilting and binding.

I LOVE seeing each and every one of them!

This one is Irene’s – ready for quilting!

Spit 9 patches, last year’s Leader & Ender challenge!

This one has a special story and is made with many memory fabrics ---the receiver is a Texas Aggie fan – hence the claret!  I love how the solids give the eye a place to rest amongst the wonderful scraps.

Another Split 9 patch, different layout!  Wow!

Directions for this block are found under the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog!

A donation quilt by the “Giver Bee!” shown at our Fredericksburg workshop!

Okay, I am in love with this setting!  Isn’t it awesome?  As a bee, their goal is to make only GORGEOUS charity quilts ---no ugly quilts allowed.  With the right design, they have achieved their goal!

Here is another:

How is this for a fabulous log cabin?

I do not have a pattern source for these ---just eye candy to share from my students.

You’ll find this one also under the Free Patterns tab, and it uses 2.5” strips – so get sewing!

She called it not quite Amish Smile

Yesterday’s Guild Presentation!

As you can see, the Hill Country Quilters packed their meeting place full and we had a great time.  I’m looking forward to 2 days of Love Shack workshops here with the gals.  Scrappy Happy Fun!

And of course, I had to make a trip out to Creations Quilt Shop while here in Kerrville:

The stars and strips quilt ("giver bee") is a pattern called Saddle Tramp by Marcy PAtch. It was published in McCall's quick quilts. (I thought it should have proper attribution.)
