Mod Conn Quilt Guild Show and Tell

Hello Everyone,

Today was a fun day for me!  We had our Modern Connecticut Quilt Guild meeting.  Some newcomers today and lots of wonderful inspiration.  

Our group quilt tops are coming along.  Some you will remember from previous posts.

These are our green pieced blocks from our second meeting with the purple setting blocks.  We need just a few more purple.

Our orange pieced blocks from our third meeting with the teal setting blocks.  A few more teal blocks needed.

Our newest pieced blocks are blue!

A late comer today.

Another late comer.  We have decided to set the blocks with an apple green.  So you will see these in a couple of months paired with apple green.  

All the above will be piece together in to separate quilts and be given to charity.

 Now onto the show and tell.

Sue's own quilt! She kept this one to herself.  Often times we as quilters give many away.

Michele made this oil cloth bag.

And this twist quilt.  Just beautiful!

Michele also made this Zig Zag quilt.  Love the purples.

Next up Heide completed this very pretty quilt.  Heide is hiding behind it!

Heide also did her own rendition of a quilt from the book on the table.  She once again is hiding.

This book has given her tons of inspiration.  There is Heide and see the painting in the book, didn't she do a great job replicating it in a quilt?

Lidia was a newbie to the group and she brought a Mola along to share. 

Cheree is creating this wonky star quilt for her daughter.

This quilt was really pretty similar to our green and purple blocks.

Sue created this coin type quilt with some cool fish fabric!

Look at her reindeer.  She had to enlarge them 500% from the original pattern.

Julia showed off her Kaffe Targets skirt, super cute.  But you can also see her cute selvage skirt she is wearing.

Julia's mom Tina (Seaside Stitches) brought along the following little pouch.  It was made for her from a swap partner.

There is Tina!! Her swap partner designed and made this fabulous quilt.

This is the back.  Just wonderful!

She also had this little pouch, that she made, and it held raffle tickets for her quilt guild's show in two weeks.  Click here for information on the show.

This little piece will be up for auction at the show.

Elisa brought along with her this wonderful Aunt Grace Quilt.

And this Asian panel.  

Tina just sent me this photo of one of the quilts that I showed.  This is my "I Am Not Afraid of Color Quilt".  It is Judy Niemeyer's pattern Summer Solstice, and it is one of the patterns up for the giveaway (see below).   

Whew....   a fabulous show and tell!  I hope you all enjoyed.

Before you leave, don't forget to enter the BIG GIVEAWAY going on here.

Until Next Time...

Thanks for the recap, Jackie! It was a fun meeting and I forgot to bring my camera. I should have offered to take some photos of you showing your quilts, but maybe one of the other bloggers did. Looking forward to our next meeting!

Ack! I look horrible from that angle! I'm so glad we were able to come to the meeting.

I love that your colorway blocks will become charity quilts. Quilters are always so generous. Such unique and different projects. That's what is so fun about show and tell. I must say Tina's orange/grey quilt really caught my eye.

What a great show and tell! I was just thinking 'Hmm, Julia looks familiar' and then I read that she's Tina's daughter and I've seen her photo on her blog, no wonder I recognised her!!! Love Tina's mini quilt!

Thimbleanna said...
