Quilt Day Show n Tell

We had our semi-annual quilt day at Carol's house the end of March. It was great to see friends and their projects and get some intensive sewing in. It happened to be my birthday, as well as a couple of days before Carol's daughter Nikki's birthday, so we were surprised in late afternoon with a cake and presents. I was gifted with multiple fat quarters, some candles and notions, so thanks everyone! I truly was not expecting that.

It was a little cramped where quilts were being shown off, so I couldn't get the whole quilt in the picture. But you can get an idea of the variety.

This is a twin-size quilt that Trudy has made for her son. It has a variety of blue and red fabrics, all Civil War reproduction prints.

This is another one that Trudy finished; a wall hanging with ginkgo and Asian script prints. The color combinations and metallic accents make it very elegant.

I'm sorry, I don't remember who made this. I'm thinking either Jani or Diana.

Cindy had written mystery instructions for the group, all using the large, bright amoeba fabric in the large squares. This is Carol's finished version. The border of asymmetrical squares really sets it off.

Carol's (foreground) and Jeanne's (back) show what a difference fabric choices make, even starting with the same theme fabric, and using the same pattern.
