April Show and Tell

“Spooky” by Mary Jo Roberts – Mary Jo Made this darling Halloween Quilt from a pattern she got “on the cheap”, she enjoys fall colors.  She actually had this one in to the quilter the day before Halloween – 2008!
“The Mill Girls” by Mary Jo Roberts – This gorgeous quilt in 30’s fabrics was made from a book by Jennifer Chiaverini.  It has a beautiful yellow border that complements the quilt perfectly.  This is the 2nd of Mary Jo’s quilts that she started and finished in the same year.  Way to go, Mary Jo!
“Movie Quilt” by Madison Ballif – This great quilt is Madison’s first one – she is 15 years old. She made this quilt AND quilted it herself! It is made with fun, colored, food prints – great job, Madison!
“Hunter Star” by Ronda Shaw – This stunning two color quilt was made from a class she took at the Bryce Canyon Retreat last year. (Taught by Mary Lou Blazer).  It was quilted by Monique Hudson.  Even the back is cute – made with lots of green scraps.

“Lost Socks” by Ronda Shaw – This fun Christmas Quilt was made at a Fish Lake Retreat with a group fromRichfield.  This is a darling quilt with lots of multi-colored, multi-sized socks. It was also quilted by Monique Hudson.

“Row Quilt” by Judy Monson – Finishing this fun, scrappy row quilt was Judy’s #1 New Years’ Resolution!  It is darling with little houses, scrappy stars and more!

“Scrappy Bull’s Eye by Judy Monson – This quilt is stunning, with it’s many “bull’s eye” blocks, and the border is great too – very clever!  She Hand quilted (with “Big Stitches”) herself!  She is glad to have another finished project, but she still has lots of scraps left!
“Movie Night” by Vonda Proctor – This fun quilt is made with a collection of novelty “movie treats” fabrics.  Her daughter nick-named this quilt “The Biggest Loser quilt”.  Cute candy fabric on the back too – and she quilted it herself on her machine!

“Piece of Americana” by Vonda Proctor – This is a “Piece o’ Cake” pattern that she hand appliquéd in only 3 months!!! Amazing – it is beautiful and intricate – way to go, Vonda!

“Love Multiplies” by Kathy Porter – This is a black and white representation of a mother loving many children.  Love doesn’t divide between your children – it multiplies, so the more you have, the more love you have!  This quilt was made from Kathy’s original art – she loves to doodle – even at church!
“In the Beginning” by Kathy Porter – This was Kathy’s first doodle quilt.  It is a stunning quilt made with Batiks on a black background.  Quilted by Kimberwood Quilting, then Kathy added 1,000 Swarovski crystals!  She scalloped the borders with a beautiful, bright green – wow!
“Twisted Pinwheels” by Debbie Robertson – Debbie made this quilt because she “needed something new for the bed”.  Wow – it’s beautiful – scrappy quilted pinwheels, set with green and red triangles.  It is a queen size.  She got the pattern from Fons and Porter’s Magazine (May/June 2008).  Great job, Debbie!
“Bramble Bush” by Vicki Heal – Vicki had a big learning curve with this one.  She did the machine quilting herself and used “invisible thread” and had lots of trouble with the tension – she learned the hard way!  It is a darling quilt with lots of tiny squares, making a great pattern!
“Mystery Quilt” by Barb Murdock – This is a mystery quilt that Barb made from a retreat she attended 2 years ago.  On her list “to finish this year”.  It is a beautiful quilt with an intricate design – way to go, Barb!
“Annabel’s Flowers” by Dee DeHart – This beautiful quilt, is made with 2 charm packs and 2 yards of white.  Deesaid it was very easy; she left the flowers raw-edged to make it super easy.  It’s for her nephew’s new daughter. It doesn’t look easy – it’s gorgeous! 


  1. Kathy Porter's quilt "In the Beginning" is phenomenal. If you click to enlarge you can get a little better idea of how unique it is and how beautiful those crystals highlight the amazing design. Sorry for the not so great picture.

  2. Kimberly - great job on keeping track of the show and tell pics, etc.!

  3. I love seeing the show & tell pictures on here. I was helping to hold quilts this month and didn't get to see the front of most of them, so thanks for doing this!
