FIRST SATURDAY BEE SHOW N TELL


Show-N-Tell is always fun and was no different recently when the First Saturday Bee met at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above Cathy M. shows us her latest finish.  I wish all of you who love those Civil War fabrics could see this in person.  It is fantastic and Cathy did a lovely job.  She calls it her California King quilt.

Jan L. made this quilt top. She said this foundation pieced quilt is supposed to look wonky. She would just randomly cut the fabrics to get the various sizes. She chose Christmas fabrics and adding the panel with the stars and trees was her own idea. You probably can’t see it very well in the picture, but Jan says the fabric in the bottom border is what inspired her to do this quilt. Well done, Jan.

Saw this on Bella On Line. Sew 4 Home has a tutorial for a car caddy that straps on the headrest. Great idea.

Stay Positive!

Great show of quilts. I think Cathy is a real champ finishing up her CWT BOM. I am still on the October blocks for the BOM and of course have yet to finish mine. It is a beautiful quilt and I will finish it this year, but had to take a break from all of those HSTs. Wow. Way too many:/

I've been searching in google for some new ideas and occasionally found your westmichquilter.blogspot.com website. What a cool blog! I like how appointed each of the entries are. They are well balanced - amusing and informatory - and the pictures are great too.
