Time for Show-N-tell

Beth Liotta just finished this paper-pieced beauty. Pattern is by Judy Niemeyer.

Just back from the quilter! This beautiful Coastal Lilies quilt (pattern by Minick & Simpson), was pieced by Trish Wys and quilted by Beth Liotta.

Beth Liotta and Trish Wys are determined to make all the quilts from the "40 Fabulous Quick Cut Quilts" book. Here are the two most recently finished projects. It's a great book and all the quilts are stunners!

Isn't this a cute "I Spy" quilt? Diana Carafano made snowball blocks and set them using the pattern from our "Great Snow Event" in January. Very playful!

Ann Caldwell reproduced this beautiful quilt from a 3" picture she saw in a book of antique quilts from Amish country in Pennsylvania. Carefully studying the picture, Ann drafted a color grid for the quilt and then stitched the quilt from the grid one quarter at a time. It was tedious work, but what a fabulous result! The pattern is called Bowmansville Star.

And how about THIS show-n-tell.....
Looking for a fun way to make your own greeting cards? These mixed media art greetings are easy to make and fun to give. Alice Berg made these from an assortment of "findings" she had around the house! Learn the techniques from one of our Mixed Media books or, better yet, sign up for one of the Mixed Media classes taught by Marty Young.

Keep em' coming ladies, keep em' coming!
