Jo Morton Little Women Club Quilts #11

Show and Tell is one of my favorite parts of quilt class.  This is one of Margaret's appliqué quilts.  She used a combination of fabrics:  wool, brushed cotton, Primitive Gatherings shirtings and some Jo Morton from her stash.  Wish I had taken a photo of the back of this quilt--the workmanship is incredible.  Margaret loves appliqué, she had received her block of the month kit from Primitive Gatherings this week and has already finished it!

Pottery Shards--Aren't the fabrics awesome?

More pottery shards--more yummy fabrics

Pottery shards--blue version, wish I had thought of this

This is Terri's, notice she aded a small inside border

This is raspberry swirl, the maker of this quilt has a wonderful eye for color

This is Carmen's Yankee Doodle appliqué quilt.  Beautiful!

Carmen brought this antique quilt to share.  The hand quilting was exquisite!

The back of the quilt.  This quilt came from Lancaster, Penn and is believed to be Amish.  Notice the use of solid print fabrics.

This is next month's project--flying geese.  After class, Carmen and I took a road trip to a new quilt shop.  We found some awesome fabric on sale, met some super nice quilters and one of them introduced me to a new quilting ruler, which I am calling my secret quilting weapon tool!
