Jo Morton Club Progress

To start off our Jo Morton Club show and tell last night I had my Patriotic Strippy Stars (mainly because I didn't have my Holiday Inn project any further along). This can be found in the book Remembrances by Jo Morton. We've just gotten this great blue star print that I used in the border back in stock. Contact And Sew It Goes if you need some.

This is Luanne Lindeman's Holiday Inn. She used the center from Peppermint Twist (also in the book Remembrances), and a great border fabric from an older Jo line called Lexington.

Luanne also had this great little Nine Patch Strippy from Club 6 that she did with borders in the Providence Collection. Notice it's all completely finished, quilted and bound!

We all loved Karen Gladfelter's Holiday Inn with that great red frame with the dark cornerstones. I'm still loving the dotty background that she used for the center applique block!

Val Sanford shared with us her Churn Dash. This pattern was originally a JLW Club 1 project that was recently reprinted in Jo's book Yesterday's Charm. Val used a Windham Bundle to make it in Cheddar, Poison Greens and Blues. Jo had some great Poison Greens in a recent line called Courtney's Bouquet that would work well in this color scheme too.

This is Karen Watkins Holiday Inn with great traditional red and green center. Being a huge Baltimore Album fan, I just love the look of this one!

Karen W. also brought in her finished cross stitch Teapot block of the month for us to see. This is just adorable with the colors used and each block has wonderful button adornments! My picture just doesn't do it justice.

And for hand stitchery fans, Peggy Schaum shared this beauty that she did from a Kathy Schmitz pattern called A Bird's Life. I just love the blackwork, and we carry alot of Kathy's patterns (including this one) at our shop.

Last night I gave out the pattern for the last of the borders for the Holiday Inn project, so next month we will be showcasing the finished products. Keep on stitching!

Enjoy the day!

I belong to Jo's Little Women Club from an online shop and it's wonderful to see variations of Holiday Inn. This is my first time working with Jo's patterns, and I'm loving it. Thanks Dawn for sharing your show and tell.
