A Little Show and Tell With My Friends

Our Jo Morton Club 9 has finished, but we still had one more gathering at the shop before our little break just to get together.  And you know we always have things to show that we've been working on.  I didn't have a quilt this month, but I brought in my Signature Exchange blocks that I swapped with the Jo Morton Stitchers Yahoo Group and I just got back in the mail this week.  I think there are 134 of them, and they are from people all over the world...and Jo participated too!  It was a great swap, and now I have to decide on a way to set them...hmm...wheels are turning...

Here are some of the other projects that were shared last night. 

Peggy Schaum does lovely stitchery and has been busy on these little mini quilts that she can display/swap out as the seasons change. 

They are little patterns from Bare Roots.  I love the fabrics that she combined to frame her stitchery!

Sandy Lynch showed us another version of the Sisters quilt from Jo Morton.  She did the inking method on her center sisters block.  So sweet :)

And because we are such an eclectic group, and don't just make quilts, here are a few accessories that were shown last night.  Barbara Lanore made this cute bag from the Cherrywood collection of fabrics. I don't remember if she said the pattern she used, but I think the suede look of the fabric is just perfect with the handles she chose. 

...and Karen Watkins brought in a couple of her finished needlepoint belts that we've been watching her work on at past gatherings.

I love the colors :)

Finally, this is what I came home from the shop with!  Jo Morton's Complements fat quarter bundle.  And Sew It Goes now has the entire collection both on bolts and fat quarter bundles :)  Sweet!

Enjoy the day!

Hey Dawn, I see my signature block! I'm still waiting for mine. I can't wait to get my hands on them! Gotta love that Jo fabric.

Oh I just love Jo Morton's fabric. If I lived near you I would love to join your club. Some lovely projects were made.
