|This is a new shop sample pillow made with a 12" pig block. We have a few other animals as well.|
|Another new shop sample, this pattern features "gifts" in either a place mat size or a table runner with more gift boxes. The bow is made like a half Dresden plate block.|
|Lonnie made this panel quilt for the shop. Really cute and I love the colors. Great for any sewing room wall.|

A group of friends each gave Millie a piece of fabric and this is how she used it. Beautiful.
|Here is a close up of the back to show Julia Swallow's graceful machine quilting.|
Millie, a talented quilter, historian, quilt collector and educator will speak in November at our Sisters of the Cloth meeting.

Super Nova is the name of this panel from Hoffman. Lonnie fancied it up a bit with borders, making it about 52" x 52". She put flannel on the back for a winter couch throw. Deb S quilted it with a fun snowflake design. In kits, of course, but they are going quick.

Last weekend, I was invited to join a group of quilters at the Christian Conference Center in Newton for a "No Frills Quilt Retreat". That meant we mostly just sewed all weekend. There were a few games of quilters poker thrown in, though.
It was both a fun and a productive weekend. Here are a few pictures of projects coming together around the room.
|Diana's string quilt|
|After Diana finished one string quilt, she started another one!|
|Playing with wool|
|Jane was pretty diverse in her piecing!|
|Jackie shared to quilts made from Missouri Star patterns - above and below.|
|Linda made the quilt top below with this border fabric as her inspiration.|
|This quilt is about 5' x 6' - (tee hee)|
|This was cool. It's a reverse fusible applique Linda learned in a class.|
|Made from leftover pieces.|
|This is a block-a-day quilt. Lovely.|
|Stunning in person, I loved that Sheryl chose to use grey with these warm tones. Really set it off nicely.|
|These three sisters had a great time stitching together.|
|Trademarked fabric for University of Wyoming. Very nice,|
Thank you ladies, for including me.

Last month, I handed out the last block pattern for our Barn Quilt Sign BOM. Some of the gals brought their blocks to share.
|Three of Trish's|
|This is Nancy's version of our Barn Block BOM, using just 11 of the blocks. Isn't this fun?|
|Nancy's pillow made from mini charms. Below see her happy lap quilt and a log cabin wall hanging to match her bed quilt.|
|Meet Deb's Jewel Box quilt made using the half square triangles from our exchange - - - plus a few more. Stunning.|
|We always love when Dian shares what she has been doing in her art quilt group. This little quilt replicates a Walking Stick she found on her front porch.|
|It was on the back of a leaf with the sun shining through making it illuminate.|
|Margaret and Trish shared their wooden quilt blocks. Very pretty.|
|Margaret found this archive and finished it up. Cute.|
|Theresa is making reversible pillow shams.|
|Nancy finished up this darling pineapple block quilt.|
|Sue just finished up this big beauty.|
|Abbie shared her version of our Ladies of the Lake Retreat quilt project. Very nice.|
|Abbie also showed us this French Braid quilt made for her daughter. She wanted it to have the feel of London. Well done!|
|Jackie, known for her red, white and black quilts, shared this row quilt. Love it.|
|And she shared this adorable baby quilt along with the birth announcement of a brand new grandchild!!!|
|After a quick demo on a fabric folded basket, we had refreshments and called it a night.|
Thanks to Jackie O for taking these pictures and to all of my super Quilt Circle of Friends.
