June Show & Tell

What a wonderful way to start a warm June day in Georgia!  Today was our Second Saturday Sampler day and we had some great Show & Tell that we thought you might enjoy seeing!
Jan finished her quilt just in time for her father's 80th Birthday - she'll be delivering it to him this week.  I loved the way she finished the edge and I know her father is going to love the quilt!
 Mary's Mother-in-law is turning 96 this month and the only thing she wanted is a quilt!  Mary is originally from Ohio so she used the very traditional Ohio Star block to make this classic.

Leslie pins a lot of great ideas on her Pinterest Boards.  She decided she finally need to try making some of the things she's pinned!
 The first little project she made was a mug rug made with miniature Quarter-Square Triangle blocks.  She plans to give it to her Bible Study teacher who loves to drink tea.
 The second little project is a carrying case for ear-buds.  What a clever idea!
Caroline is in charge of her family reunion this year.  The theme for the reunion is Christmas in July so one of Caroline's friends made this cute apron for her to wear.  Caroline and a friend filled her freezer with Christmas cookies for the reunion - we're hoping there are a few cookies left for us after the reunion for next month's Show & Tell (or should we say Show & Eat!)!
Marlene is a brand-new quilter and this is her first quilt!  Good job, Marlene...we're impressed!
Terrell took the beginning quilting class series shortly after his mother died so he could make quilts from her clothes to share with family members.  This is the quilt he made and quilted in the beginner class.
After he finished the beginner class, Terrell made this Disappearing Nine-Patch quilt for his niece. The red squares in the quilt are from one of his mother's shirts.  Terrell is planning to put a picture of his niece with his mother on the quilt label.  What a special treasure!
