Showing & Sharing in Marshall, MO!

The quilters came from all over the midwest to meet with other quilters, to take workshops, to share their beautiful quilts.

And I am the lucky one who gets to see them all up close and in person!

This is Pam’s Orca Bay in oranges, purples, blacks and neutrals…it’s so stunning!

I just love it Pam, and it was so great to see you at my lecture!

Due to the shortness of time between the end of the lecture and the start of our afternoon workshop, there wasn’t a formal show & share period – and since our half day afternoon workshop didn’t have a lunch period ((We grazed all afternoon!)) we saved the rest of show and share for the lunch period on the next day during our Smith Mountain Morning workshop.

We got to commandeer the whole stage area, step away from our machines and enjoy what everyone had brought.

And now I get the privilege of sharing them all with YOU!


I lkove the motion in this Grand Illusion!


What a great layout for Split 9 Path!

Split 9 Patch was our Leader & Ender Challenge 2 years ago, and you can still find it under the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog.  How is yours coming??


Mary and her String Spider Web also from the Free Patterns tab!

Check out how she turned the corners with stringy-fans!


Vicky’s Show Stopping Perkiomen Daydreams from Scraps & Shirttails!

All 10,000 1’’ squares!

And there are more, many  more!  I’m uploading them all into a slide show so you can take your time with them.  Maximize it to full screen. Hit pause when you need.  Play it more than once if you want!

These quilters did a fabulous job, and I thank them so much for bringing their beautiful quilts to share with all of us.

Show & Share, Marshall, MO 2015

Would you believe today feels like a light day for me?

I’m teaching a Scrap Crystals workshop from MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders for the Ozark Piecemakers guild in Springfield, Missouri.  24 students feels like a light load!

Class will go from 9am to 4pm, and then I am headed out for a hike with one of my students.  I’m so thrilled she asked me.  So be watching for some nature photos in a future post.

Oh, and yes – last night after the second lecture, you can bet there was this:


Andy’s Frozen Custard!

And you can bet that I earned and enjoyed every single cool and creamy bite of this pumpkin concrete!

Oh!  And tonight I’m drawing for the winner of the QUILTY BOX!  Did you enter?  I not, head over to THAT POST to leave your comment there to win!

Have a great Wednesday, everyone!

  5. Andy's! Oh yum!!! I had the pleasure of meeting a few of the Ozark Piecemakers this summer~ such fun ladies! Enjoy!

  6. Everyone needs to go back and look again at the border on that first Grand Illusion quilt. It is awesome. Is it like an optical illusion?? Does anyone else see that?
