Last Show 'n Tell for the year

Wow and Wow and Wow!!!!  What a way to end 2013 Show 'n Tell.  So many great works to stir up our creative juices.  Where to start next year.
Sara took a little bit of this and a little bit of that and came up with this darling quilt.  This is the top, after it is finished being quilted it is off its new owner.  Thank you Sara for bringing it in to show us.

Look at all the new Barn Quilt Blocks!  There have been several classes around the area showing folks how to do their own block - These are fantastic.  Ssssssshhhhhh!  Don't tell anyone, but the word is in 2014, all of us will have a chance to see what is what.

Cindy finished her wonderful 9-patch, thanks to the urging of one of her fellow quilters.  So glad you did Cindy, it is gorgeous.

Has anyone seen this book - if you haven't, be on the look out.  Cindy's quilting story is told inside.

Okay Deb - Yeah! for all you have accomplished.  And boo-hoo for us who have not been as productive.  Deb made up her mind that she needed to finish some smaller items in her stash so that she can devote her time to the larger quilts she wants to do. 
Deb has done a wonderful job with the panels she has been collecting.

Not sure which we like best.

Deb really liked the face on this Santa, looks like Santa should.

Deb has even been able to "float" some darling sayings on her long arm.

Thank you Deb for sharing these wonderful works of art.  If you run out of wall space - think we know some people that would be willing to take a few off your hands.........

Jane has been hard at work also.  Did we hear right - this is an anniversary present?

Janet has a new one due this holiday season - what a fantastic baby quilt to remember when you came into the family.  The colors are so bright and happy.

Jan was our president in 2008 and in 2009.  As we had given her signed blocks as thank you in 2008, we took up a collection and handed her a gift certificate to All About Quilts to say thank you in 2009.  She used her certificate to obtain fabric for this quilt.  She wanted something to remember us all by - and with over 8,000 pieces in this quilt - What a memory.

The color pallet Jan chose taught her a lot about colors pushing forward or hiding back.  Towards the end she said she got to hating the blocks - but it wasn't as big as she wanted it - so the border pattern hatched itself and framed all her hard work beautifully.  Thank you Jan for honoring your fellow quilt members in such a fantastic way.

Carol went to a family reunion and they had a silent auction to disperse some family treasures.  Carol was blessed with winning this quilt made by her grandmother in the 50's.

The Log Cabin pattern presents a very unique design.

Carol was also given about 40 blocks - of two sizes of Dresdan Plate blocks.  Unfortunately, not all the plates have backgrounds - so though applique is not Carol's favorite technique - Guess what she is going to be doing soon? 

Frances has finished another rug from her quilt scraps.  What a beauty.

At our Football Widows Sew Day, Hayley made her Fat Quarter bag and has already put it to good use.  She not only made it, used it, but she also remembered to bring it to Show 'n Tell.  Oops!  A few of us forgot.
For the next two months when you have absolutely nothing to do - work steady on all of your UFO's.
We will all be looking forward to a very long Show 'n Tell part of the program in January 2014.
Have fun.
