May Bee Day

Yesterday was our JSS Bee Day for May!  Our heroic hostess was Patti and we are all grateful for her stepping in to hostess at the last minute.  We all had a wonderful time, ate a lot, stitched a little and laughed a lot!  And, of course, there was show and tell.

Nancy was working on this beautiful applique.

Nancy's-appliqueSome details (it helps to blog about this the day after bee day – I remember stuff better :-)) –  the gorgeous fabric is Robyn Pandolf and Nancy is using Beth Ferrier Applique Sheets which give your applique a nice crisp edge but will wash away when you are done stitching.

Lynn wins the prize for the most show and tell!  First – her virtual show and tell:Lynn's-Virtual-Show-and-TelThe back of the quilt is made up of T-Shirts!  What a great way to create a memorable quilt but have a wonderfully sophisticated top!

Lynn's-virtual-quilt-backLynn also showed us a great way to tote around a hand stitching project.  Use a flannel-backed tablecloth cut to the right size:

Lynn's-handy-carrier-for-toAnd Lynn brought a couple of quilts to share too!  She’s been one super productive JSS’er!  This children’s quilt is just adorable:

Lynn's-Children's-QuiltI had to get a close-up of one of the panel blocks – super cute!

Lynn's-Children's-Quilt-CloAnd … last but not least this beautiful flying geese quilt:

Lynn's-Flying-Geese-QuiltLast week Judy went to the Trinity Valley Quilters’ Guild workshop presented by our own Annie Foerster.  They learned all kinds of 3-D texturing techniques and Judy brought her project to show:

Judy-and-her-pretty-pillowHow cute is that!

Patti’s show and tell is this pretty red and white quilt made from block exchange blocks.

Patti's-Red-and-White-blockThe back is really neat.  We asked Patti how she came up with the idea for the back and she said she just dug around in her stash and let the quilt speak to her!  It’s always nice when our quilts speak to us and we actually listen!  Most of mine say “finish me!”

Patti---back-of-red-and-whiMy show and tell was the little itty bitty Kaffe’s Crazy Neighborhood that I included in a blog the other day:

Kaffe's-Crazy-NeighborhoodWith all the showing and sewing we were ready for lunch!

lunchWe had quite a spread!  These scrumptious tomatoes were to die for (I think Nancy brought these)…

yummo-tomatoesAnd, finally, before we all had to hit the road, we Skyped with Barb in Canada – it was such fun to see her and get a virtual tour of the motor home!

skyping-with-BarbWe missed a lot of gals this week.  I hope all the husbands, mothers, grandkids, dogs, jobs, vacations and other bee day distractions are all well taken care of by next month!  I’m sure y’all will have LOTS of show and tell by then!!!
