Things have been so run run run that I haven’t had time to post about the wonderful array of show and share quilts that were brought along to both retreats in Iowa last week!
There was so much variety, and such skill – and perseverance!
Our common love of fabric, thread ((yes and batting and binding too!)) goes so deep and connects us all.
I just LOVE it when you bring your quilts to share with me.
And the benefit of bringing show & share to retreat? You can sleep under it while you are away from home as well!
I love this Scrappy Mountain Majesties, all in recycled shirts in a perfect napping size for the couch. Doesn’t it make you just want to curl up in it and read a good book, or take a long snooze?
I am GOING to make another plaid one – I am!
**Side Note** My friend Mona has not worked with triangles yet. But she is on her way home from Ohio – and I have enough shirts for the both of us so we are going to dig back into this one. Want to join us? I’ll post details later. And just so you know, we’ve hooked her good – she bought ANOTHER featherweight yesterday on her way back from Ohio, and there is a treadle machine in the back of the car too! LOL!
Another Scrappy Mountain Majesties! Yes –I think we need to do this!
You will find the free pattern for Scrappy Mountain Majesties under the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog.
Roll Roll Cotton Boll from String Fling!
Orca Bay from String Fling! Just Gorgeous!
A wonderful Easy Street from MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders in terrific colors!
Narragansett Blues from MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders as well!
And this only takes us part way through the show & share of the first day of retreat!
I’ve uploaded the rest into a slide show because there are so many.
Click the image below if you are unable to view the slide show on your mobile device. You’ll be taken to the photo album for viewing.

I know it is hard to believe, but we were so down and busy that I took very few photos!
Getting the set all set!
Going over flow charts!
Lights, Camera Action!
And yes, there is an outfit change for every episode!
Three down, three more to go today. Make up and hair at 7am ---let’s get this thing done!
As fun as the past more-than-a-week has been, this girl is ready to go home and have a jammie day!
Have a super Wednesday, everyone!
