This post is all about the Show and Tell from our Christmas Bee day last week. During our big block exchange we would occasionally get carried away with chatter, laughter, food and Facetime with Barb and Pam in Alaska!
So of course we just had to take a break and show off a bit!
Sue Gallo showed us her quilt for the Cancer Center. I know that this will be truly appreciated by many patients!
We were all thrilled to see Judy’s quilt top made from blocks received during last year’s exchange!
Tone-on-tone with lots of bling! Love it!
Patti (still Facetiming) showed us a quilt received from a bee brown bag exchange from a few years ago.
Madelyn brought her Black and White and Red All Over quilt (what’s the joke? What’s black and white and red all over – a sunburned zebra).
We went back to the block exchange for a while and then back to show and tell – interspersing show and tell throughout the afternoon – it was wonderful!
Dede showed off some of her glorious quilting in this little gem:
And this pretty quilt:
Soon Judy brought out some more quilts to show:
And a quilt she made from fabric purchased in Maui with her granddaughter. Isn’t this wonderful?
Judy, we are going to Maui early next year! I need the name of that shop!
Karen had been working on the silhouette quilt during retreat in October. It turned out just great!
Cindy brought this gorgeous block of the month quilt. I love the colors!
Lynn brought three beautiful Christmas quilts. I suspect these are for some very lucky loved ones!
Sally brought her beautiful Christmas wall hanging complete with embroidery and some awesome Inklingo blocks! I love this quilt!
Davene (sporting Dede’s Christmas spirit hat) with her happy blue stars:
Dede was sitting on a chair on which this awesome crazy quilt was displayed. So of course, we insisted she show it!
Linda brought her applique Christmas quilt. She told us how it documents her progression with her applique skills from the first block in the upper left to the most recent in the lower right. It’s always nice to see how we’ve improved and this is such a beautiful quilt too!
And one final Christmas show and tell from Linda:So, now you know why we had to have two whole blogs to show all the fun and spirit of love from the JSS Christmas Bee Day!
Merry Christmas, y’all!
