Show and Tell

Here are a couple of the Show n Tell quilts from people that attended on Saturday. This one was really pretty with it's large sunflowers.

The next 2 photos are of the same quilt from different angles. The colour of the 2nd one is truer to life. I wanted to show all of the quilt because it is hexagons, tiny, tiny hexagons. Even the brown border. Amazing  or insanity.

This was Merri's quilt, so far. Enormous blocks. Just beautiful.

This quilt was down before I got a full photo of it. Here is Corliss from Threadbear holding it. It was the pieced border that interested me the most, made in purple and white it surrounded a centre of enormous flowers.

I showed my Ann Daggs quilt which is my header just now on the blog.

Your quilt in the header is beautiful!

I very much like the quilt with the Orange Peel design and the sunflower blocks surrounding it. I have made a lot of those type blocks in the past. I think I need to make a quilt like that.

Merri's quilt with the big blocks is from the book Quilts from the Henry Ford Museum (not sure if that is the exact title). I have that book and have that quilt on my "to do someday" list. If I remember those blocks are around 34". All of these are wonderful!
