And There Were So MANY Quilts!

It’s hard to know where to start!

Because the show & share quilts kept coming and kept coming and they were ALL so spectacular!

You know, if we added up all of the yards and yards of fabric used in these quilts, and connected all of the threads used to sew, quilt and bind these pieces from end to end to end – I think we could go MORE than across the state of Missouri …..we could cover the whole Midwest and more!

Show & Share is one of my favorite times during a workshop.

We usually hold it right at the end of lunch – just as folks are finishing up, enjoying that last brownie, or as in our workshop yesterday in Kirksville – spooning up that last bit of ice cream sundae topped with homemade berry sauce!

It gives us a chance to know each other a bit better, letting those sharing tell us a bit about themselves, where they hail from, and just what went behind the making of these beautiful quilts.
 From the smallest:


Something SO MINI!!

This is Diane’s teeny tiny 1/4’’ hexie top!!  You could have knocked me over with a feather when she placed this in my hands to view yesterday.  Her plans are to frame it and hang it in her home.

A good idea, because there is just no way to quilt through all the layers of seam allowance on something this intricate.  Sometimes the patchwork is the prize, and it doesn’t need to go any further!

To the LARGEST!!


Michele’s Picnic Quilt for a Family of SEVEN!

When you have a large family who loves to picnic for summer holidays, you make a quilt big enough to fit EVERYONE!  This monster is 144’’ square…..WOW!  I love it, Michele!


And Aprons, too!

Show & Share wasn’t limited to quilts!  I was gifted this adorable apron from Nancy and Sue! We were so stylin’ through our workshop day!

I have show & Share from 3 workshops AND a large showing from our lecture night too – so I hope you will pour yourself a cup of something and sit and enjoy!

Feel free to pause the slide show as needed, and make it full screen if you can!

Show & Share, Kirksville MO 2015

Many of our students came from out of state, and I want to thank them for not only coming all of this way and hauling machines and fabric – but adding to the mix by bringing these special quilts to share with me.

Wasn’t that a wonderful show and share?

If you find yourself attending one of my  workshops or a lecture in the future – PLEASE bring show & share!  You don’t even need to be told to do so.  Consider it an open invitation.

I can’t wait to see what you’ve been working so hard on!
