This is Stephanie with her En Provence quilt!
Our Show & Share in Birmingham has been EPIC.
So many beautiful quilts from these very talented quilters that I am having to do TWO posts to present them all, as they all deserve to been shared and seen.
I often get *excuses* like “Sorry, it’s just a top.” or “I didn’t bring it because the binding wasn’t finished.” Oh, we don’t care! BRING IT!
We all know the extreme effort that it takes to just get a top to completion. We all know the rush of trying to get a binding sewn down, or a label or a sleeve in place.
I am happy to see BLOCKS, I am ecstatic to share your efforts in whatever you are putting together.
So don’t let the fact that it is “Just a top” stop you. There is NO SUCH THING as “Just a top.”
I love seeing the mystery quilts come together, of course. There were Celtic Solstices (Would that be Soisti?) Grand Illusions, Allietares, and En Provences make an appearance as well as many others.
Some partial tops came to yesterday’s guild presentation!
Joyce’s Wild n’ Goosey will be KING SIZE by the time she is done!
Pattern from the Addicted to Scraps book!
A beautiful Narragansett Blues from MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders
shared during Thursday evening’s meeting!
And of course, I love the back!
Terrie made a Jamestown Landing from String Fling in a smaller block size!
Hooray for bonus triangles!
How about THIS colorway for En Provence?
A special shout out to Annette and her Wonderful Wonky Wishes quilt!
Oh I love this so much!
There are photos from Thursday, Thursday evening, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and yesterday’s guild meeting included in this slide show. Grab a cuppa, sit down and enjoy.
Doesn’t this make you just want to go dig into the scraps, head over to the machine and SEW?! I know it does me!
But I am off to teach a Talkin’ Turkey workshop today, and that is going to be just as fun.
I have 3 workshop days and 1 lecture day left in this whirlwind trip of Alabama. The rest of the show & share photos will follow likely after my return home.
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Vintage quilt found in Alabama.
Happiness will never come to those who don't appreciate what they already have.
Start by appreciating the little things TODAY.
Much love from Birmingham -
