And Then There Was Show & Share!

We had THREE spectacular days of Show & Share during our lunch break at our workshops in Bedford, Pennsylvania!

It was an entire quilt show – with each class holding between 50 and 60+ students depending on the day.

Even if only HALF the class brought something to show….that is a LOT of gorgeousness to drool over.

While our first day we lunched inside and did Show & Share inside as well, by day 2 we had moved our lunch into the beautiful weather outside enjoying the pavilion behind the American Legion hall where our workshops were held.  It was a great way to get out and enjoy some fresh air and enjoy quilts in natural daylight.

I absolutely love it when someone sees a different vision for my quilts,   as in this gorgeous Jamestown Landing shown above.  Light chains on a dark background.  LOVE THIS!!


Another with the values reversed!


Extra blocks on the back!


Many Grand Illusions came out to shine!

And a Grand Illusion gone Mini!!


Half-Size piecing!!


A Tumelo Trail from Scraps & Shirttails II
Set with Turquoise!

Your quilt, your vision, your rules!  I love it!


Even a COMPLETED Carolina Christmas top!

And oh, so many more!  So be prepared to pour yourself a cuppa, settle in for a whopper of a slide show and enjoy the inspiration!

    Those are my fields, my sheep and that is an old barn foundation, not a house. It was a bank barn, no fireplace. But yes, a beautiful view.
