Jo Morton Little Women Show and Tell


Look at these teeny tiny Jo nine-patches in their own little wooden box. Each is a stack of perfect miniature nine-patches in the most beautiful color combos.

Now, this woman amazes the rest of us each month with her phenomenal talent for mixing reproduction prints. Isn't this little basket to die for?

And this is hers, too. This is her choice for an upcoming Little Women block swap. 6" blocks in a pattern of our choice, so we will all end up with a sampler quilt of about 18 or so blocks (since there are three sessions of Little Women).

Oh, same talented woman. These are for "Jo Morton Meets the Easter Bunny", as she says :-).


Two Mini-Nines...

Amazing quilt top. Don't you love the featured central block?

Now is this a perfectly amazing quilt or what? The pictures do not show it off well at all. This was made for a Member Challenge that will be shown at the Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild Show. There will be about 20 of these challenge quilts. The challenge was to do a quilt that is 20" square, using either black or white or both, and which uses some property of the color wheel, i.e., analogous, complementary, split-triad, monochromatic, etc. Is that cool or what? You see she won a ribbon and deservedly so.

If you're considering traveling to see this show, it is always a very, very good show.

These are all soooo wonderful. If I weren't in the baggie brigade, I'd have to start one. Sigh.

The little box of 9-patches is so cute I'd have a hard time taking them out to make a quilt! Thanks for the photos.

Thanks for sharing all the lovely blocks - so much inspiration.
Once my NI blocks and quilt top are done I will make some JM blocks I think :-)

Did I tell you that your pattern is lovely ?
