Guild Meeting: Show and Tell

A bit of multi-tasking: embroidering while listening to Guild meeting...

So much Show and Tell!

My photo is terrible, but this is a very pretty quilt:

A friend and I are swapping blocks for this quilt; in fact, two friends and I are doing a swap for this pattern, in two different sizes:

These two pieces were begun in Sue Spargo's workshops (notice the delectable hand-dyed green velvet in the first):

a happy row:

These are Sue Spargo's quilts:

Hope S. gave Barbara B. a birthday gift as we sat down to lunch after Guild. A wool pinkeep; isn't it adorable? Hope says she got the pattern at a wool shop in Connecticut and is the owner's pattern. Notice the mouse pincushion:

Under the kitty face:

We actually have had some rain lately in burning, arid Georgia. Wait! There was some wind, too! which blew over three tomato cages as I was standing next to them (I was standing outside stupified by the novelty of cooler and moving air).

This called for further carefully thought-out landscaping:

This fellow is inexplicably six times as large as any of the others and has lots of tomatoes started:

Love your show n tell photos. Those are a bunch of very inspiring quilts!!! Did you enjoy the Sue Spargo lecture? Some of my friends took her workshop too. I am waiting every day for my tomatoes to get ripe. Can't wait for some BLOTs (bacon, lettuce, onion,& tomato) Have a great weekend. I am sewing sewing sewing. Lost power for an hour because of storm. This weather is off the chain!

Wow! All the Sue Spargo things are so fun to look at - but the star? That quilt you said you are collecting blocks for with a friend - oh man! Do I love that! Is it a pattern or can you share the size of just one block? Oh I need to make that!

Kathie said...

Show and Tell always the highlight of a guild meeting in my book! Some great talent there - enjoyed seeing them.

Do you have any idea how much I love that pinkeep?

You always have the best show and tell pics. That kitty/mousekeep is too darling!

The spargo quilts are wonderful.

Such delicious quilts! I want to try out more appliqué patterns and more complicated patterns, but perhaps with larger piecing pieces!!!
