Jo's Little Women and Show n Tell

Here are the Jo Mortons shown at last Little Women Club. There were more than these but I took several photos that were too blurry to share with you. Too much Zinfandel :-) (oh speaking of food [wine is a food group, right?], my latest WW stats: 190.8 / 143.6 /140 ):




Here are the Show and Tells from Jo Night:
These are the quiltmaker's first three blocks from Women of Design, by Barbara Brackman (aren't they darling?):

I love this quilt top. A scrappy Irish Chain (right name? Burgoyne Surrounded?):

The most gorgeous applique. Just look at the bravura quilting:

More of the quilt:

Aha, aren't we all dying to make a quilt using the darling Dick and Jane fabric. This is intended to be a present for the quiltmaker's friend-turning-fifty:

OK, first of all, yes Zinfandel is in the fruit food group so you're "legal". LOL

No, no, don't show me! Too late, you did it anyway - the Women of Designs blocks are beyond cute and adorable. I love them. I can resist - yes I can. Walking away mumbling to myself. (snicker)

They are all wonderful quilts - thanks for sharing, Karen.

So pretty, thanks for sharing the pictures! I have been tempted by that Dick and Jane fabric, it's so cute but I couldn't figure out what to make with it, that idea with the red 9 patch blocks is really nice.

Ohhh Karen, those pictures are just eye-candy. Your mention of Zinfandel just throws me right back to my holiday in the US. Yeah, good times!

Thank you for the photos...it is like a virtual guild meeting show and tell. (wthout the cookies and wine though...I've got to work on that!)

What marvelous show and tell you've given us today. I love every one of the quilts you've shown - of course! And I agree - wine must be a food group!
