Quilt Club Show n' Tell

So here is a little show and tell from my last quilt club. (We aren't a guild, there are guilds for that sort of thing). This is just us girls who get together and sew, we have common projects and individual projects. I've been sharing our common projects every month, but here are some of our individual projects.



Snowman Hand Embroidery Quilt top:



I wish I had taken a better picture of this, the beautiful hand embroidery doesn't show up very well, but the snowman is fabulous.



Feathered Friends Redwork:




The redwork was all done by hand. What is difficult to see is where she hand embroidered the name of each bird in neutral. The block above says "Sparrow"




Below you see the entire quilt. It took her six months to complete the piecing and the embroidery and then she took a weekend to finish the machine quilting.






This is a Roxanne Carter Block of the Month:




This pattern is Brave New World by Fons and Porter:



Finally this beautiful quilt is from Jennifer Chevarini's sampler pattern from the Elm Creek Quilters:

It's 140 six inch blocks, all with sashing, hand quilted. I wish I would have had my camera with me and not just my phone! It's quite stunning in person.



Cheers,

Dionne
