Showing & Sharing in Stillwater, OK!

There was a whole lot of sharing going on in our workshop day in Stillwater, Oklahoma yesterday!

So many quilters said “We didn’t know or we would have brought something!”

My reply?  If every one of all 50 of us brought quilts to share, we’d NEVER get back to sewing!

Still, those in the know who have read me for a while understand that I love show & share at the end of our lunch breaks.  It gives us a chance to get to know one another – where we are from, what guild we belong to, and a chance to show our stuff with the quilts we have made!

If you are coming to one of my workshops in the future, your show & share quilt is always welcome.  You don’t need an invite, just bring it!

This one is Roll Roll Cotton Boll, made when it was a mystery a few years back.  Isn’t it lovely?  You can now find the pattern for Roll Roll Cotton Boll in my book String Fling.


Orca Bay from String Fling!


We had SEVERAL Grand Illusions, each one different!


Another lovely one!


And this one too!


And this one under way!


Boxy Stars from the Free Patterns tab!

A brights on black Star Struck also from the Free Patterns tab!


A variation on Bowdacious from Adventures with Leaders & Enders
This is Liz of the New Home Treadle machine!


Easy Street from MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders made an appearance!


Also from Adventures with Leaders & Enders – Blue Ridge Beauty!

And what a Beauty it is!

As always, I LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing any vintage tops from your collection come out to play.  Check out this bow tie variation:


How cool is this!!


Great 1940s fabrics!

This one came down through the family in a very round about way ---so happy it landed with this quilter who just adores it.  I do too!  I’ve never seen a bow tie in this configuration!

Thank you for all of the lovely show & share you brought.  Such inspiration!

I’m inspired to go sew something ---aren’t you??

  1. I am loving that bow tie variation. I have never seen it before.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I can't believe you are so close to me. I live in Edmond. I missed my chance to meet you. And me with no kids or hubby this weekend. Hopefully someday. Thank you for keeping me company all day today with quiltcam. It was on four 4.5 hours while I fixed and restored some of my treadles.

  3. What an interesting bow tie quilt - very cool! I still have about 500 bow tie blocks in the closet that are yelling at me to make them into a quilt!

  4. Me and the GIMQ. As a new quilter, I was a little intimidated initially to try the Grand Illusion. I am so glad that I did. I have learned so much from your project. Thank you so much for giving us so much of yourself. Cathy Whitby, fauxcat@yahoo.wom
