Show and Tell - Repro Divas

Here is the heavenly Yuwa fabric from Penelope's giveaway:

Nice with these two added fabrics; I'd like to add the mint green but did not have it in the stash...wouldn't it be terrific with it?

Here is evening Show and Tell from Repro Divas. I'll post K.'s pictures from day Repros next time. Here are some results of the George challenge:




Isn't this wonderful? J. used a bit of Lincoln fabric instead and followed Barb and Alma's directions for fabric boxes:


Here is my George:
First I cut out the flags from the George fabric and patched in the holes. Then I traced three fraktur figures done by the Sussel-Washington artist, Lancaster PA (name unknown) and painted them using acrylics. Now we have a new assignment for next Repro Divas, but first I really want to finish my George first. I'm picturing a border of HSTs in as antiquey fabrics as I can contrive.

N. is making my House Party pattern!


We also had our Les Fleurs class last Sunday:

Here is my Les Fleurs so far:

And here are some Les Fleurs worktables:

I am TOTALLY in love with your George and the painted parts. Wow, that is simply gorgeous. Are the George panels available at most quilt shops?

George never looked so good. ;) Thanks for sharing the pictures from your Repro Divas night. Not as good as being there, but still a treat.

Leave it to you to go for the most difficult thing you can conceive of! But I guess for you it isn't all that difficult--just to me! It is glorious! And your Les Fleurs! I love seeing the designs of the class as well. They are great!
