April's Show and Tell--- color out of the rain!

First we have a close-up of Pat's Dresden... Lovely!

Denise made a beautiful quilt for a friend's wedding. (From Quilting Modern)

Nancy and her beautiful graphic quilt!

Nancy is working her way through the Bag Maker's Bible.

First time visitor, beloved quilt store worker, Tracy, did a wonderful study with upcycled shirts.

A large photo to show the size of Pat's gorgeous Dresden plate quilt... sigh.

Pat and her friend's do a number of challenges for their week in Sisters... lovely piece in batiks and silk
The Sister's shoe-- pincushion challenge

Diane and her rabbit friend.  Lela quilted some adorable pants on him.

Diane and her scrappy + top.
Lovely string top by Diane.
Wanda has been teaching new quilters.  She and Lela put together two quilts with the same blocks, showing you can go "Modern" and "Traditional" with the same pattern, depending on your fabric choices. Susan Miner did the quilting on Wanda's quilt and Lela quilted hers.

Come hear my thoughts on the "Modern Quilt Movement" at the Pioneer Quilt show.  I, Jessica, am speaking Wednesday @ 1pm @ the Lane Co. Historical Museum (at the Fairgrounds).  I have spoken to a few of you, but the more the merrier, if you have a quilt that you would loan me to show for the trunk show send me an email and I can pick it up and drop it off.  Additionally, if you are available to help hold up the quilts at the trunk show... I'd love a cute assistant AND I'd be your best friend for-eva! Send me an email.

Thanks for the Beautiful eye candy this month!!  I NEED to get back to sewing!!  You are all an inspiration!


P.S. Also send me an email if there are some quilt or quilting credits that need to be updated. :)
