Stars Around the Garden Class Show and Tell

Class last night; we brought our first blocks and the various color schemes began to come to life...










Also had some Show and Tell of Second Saturday Sampler 2007 quilts:

This quilt is designed after a pattern called "BQ" from Maple Island Quilts. Has everybody seen this site? They have some pretty interesting quilts.

This quilt has the suggested setting design for this year's Second Saturday Sampler set of blocks and it is made with smaller 6" blocks.

Beautiful!!

This wonderful twirling quilt originated in another Little Quilts class, Pineapples.
Pretty nice, eh?
