Show and Tell....

Put a bunch of quilters together and what do you get? SHOW AND TELL!!! This was our show and tell at our redwork club this week. We show all items, no matter if they are redwork related or not. I love that. It's so much fun to see what others have done.
One of our members was the guest quilter at her guild's quilt show this past September. I so wish I could have gone, but it was not to be. She brought a couple of things with her that were featured.
This is Wanetha...
First up is her hand pieced and hand quilted grandmothers flower garden complete with applique borders. It was absolutely beautiful in person. Wanetha is the one standing there to the right of the quilt in the red shirt. She is an amazing quilter and so prolific. I have lost count of how many quilts she has brought to this group to show.



She also finished this Noah's Ark stitchery which won a blue ribbon at the show. This design is a free download at Lynette Anderson's blog. I have two of these started. Note I said started. Not finished. A UFO. I really need to get that out and finish it. I think one of them actually has the borders on the finished blocks. Sheesh...




We have 3 Japanese ladies that attend our meetings. They speak very little English and we speak NO Japanese. We do a lot of pointing and smiling and pantomime...
Hopefully they understand some of it...lol One of the ladies brought this pillow cover to share. She did all hand embroidery and hand quilting. Please, click on the photo and check out those tiny stitches. They are marvelous.




Well, that's show and tell for October. I am gone this morning to my LQS for First Saturday. I should have my block done in time for design wall Monday, so come back and see it.

A friend had some wonderful health news today, so lets all say a big loud Hallelujah.... She knows who she is....
