Jo Morton Eggs and Bacon

Jo Morton Little Women Club #11 Eggs and Bacon

Today was Jo Morton quilt class.  You are correct, I did not make this quilt, the pictured quilt is the teachers quilt.  It is awesome!  My schedule has been super busy, I did not select fabric, no cutting, no sewing, no quilt.

The half square triangle inner border adds more dimension to a already challenging quilt.

If I have not already said this, the teacher is a very precise quilter!

This is also the teachers quilt, a Jo Morton Friendship Quilt.

For show and tell Marilyn brought another of her applique quilts.  Aren't the fabrics divine?  

As Marilyn was talking about this quilt, I believe she incorporated both English paper piecing and appliqué.

Another show and tell called the One Hundred Yard Dash using jelly rolls.  While showing this quilt another quilter shared a funny story about someone who had pre washed a jelly roll.  Can you picture the results of pre washing a jelly roll?

Block of the month 

More block of the month--wool appliqué

And one more block of the month

Now for some rationalization:  No one in the class had their eggs and bacon quilt!  Yes, I do feel better.  Call it the summer heat, school starting, the challenge of the quilt or just busy schedules.  Next months Jo Morton is called Framed.
