April Show and Tell





                                       April Sharing




Natalie shared a Bonnie and Camille swap bag.  Her swap partner likes the Bonnie and Camille line of Little Red Riding Hood fabric.  The great thing is, it is reversible!


Elaine shared a bag she made using the Candice Bag pattern.  It used all batiks.  The main batik was a dragon print which is Elaine's favorite motif. 



Loree made a very pretty utilitarian triangle zippy pouch.  We all love triangle shaped zippy pouches.

Jo shared a wonderful Road Trip Memory quilt she made to celebrate her cross country trip.  It had a US Map in the middle with her trip outlined in embroidery on the map.  It also contained postage stamps blocks from the states they were in, t-shirts from the cities they visited, and beautiful pinwheel blocks around the edge for border.  The back was a beautiful tie-dyed looking fabric.

Jill shared an Instagram Round Robin Quilt she made along with 8 other quilters.  They passed the quilt among themselves and added their part.  It included Jill's favorite things:  giraffes, stars, and rainbows. 




 Pat brought her quilt entitled "The Connections Between a Physicist and his Daughter."  This is a Modern Traditional quilt. It contained batiks from D.C. by Jinny Beyer.  Cindy will bind it for her in exchange for time on her quilting long arm!  The pattern is Whoosh!

Laraine shared a modern quilt she made.  She won the Adora-Le block lottery and created this stunning quilt.     It contains lots of negative space, minimalism, big blocks,and bold colors, all aspects of modern quilting.



Wendi shared two beautiful projects she made.  The first is a pillow cover.  The fabric is by Magic by Sarah Jane.  She installed a zipper for those that wanted to watch during sit and sew.  She also shared a baby quilt.  Her inspiration was from Amy Smart's Diary of a Quilter.  it is made of big half square triangles.   She was going to bind the quilt for those who wanted to watch during sit and sew. Beautiful!  Thank you for sharing your skills during sit and sew time!



Cindy shared two Scrappy traditional quilts using up more of her valuable scraps.  The design was called Scrappy Trips.  She completed them with scrappy backs, too!


Elaine shared her Jelly Roll Race quilt made with two Kate Fassett Jelly Rolls.  One was a warm Jelly Roll and one was a cool Jelly Roll.  She alternated the warms and cools. 


After lunch, we began our sit and sew session with Diane looking over our strips we made last month.  She gave us many more ideas to do with Strip Piecing from her Nancy Crow workshop. Enjoy the photo gallery below of our sit and sew time.
