October Show and Tell

Here is the show and tell for October. Sorry the pictures are not the greatest. If you click on them you can get a larger image that is easier to see.
"How Much is the Doggy in the Window" by Ella Simons - This adorable quilt has lots of cute appliqued dogs, accented with cute dog fabric. It is a charmer, for sure!
"Halloween Swap" by Tricia Tolton - Tricia joined an Internet swap for cute Halloween blocks. She says it was so fun to go to the mailbox and find a package with 12 darling blocks from all over the United States. She did the block with the 3 pumpkins on it. The rick-rack edge is striking - great job!
Table Runners" by Pauline Persson - Pauline brought in 3 wonderful table runners - Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day and Halloween! Her daughter thought she would enjoy making them, since they were fun and fast - she was right. She is now going to do one for each month!
"Jane's Jewels" by Kathy Porter - This is Kathy's version of a "Dear Jane" quilt. She made it with Michael Miller's "Fairy Frost" fabrics and it is gorgeous! She did several borders, finishing it with a scalloped binding! Quilted by Kim Peterson.
"Jane Digitized" by Crystal North - Crystal made this amazing "Dear Jane" quilt with her embroidery machine. It is all in red and white and just stunning!

"Christmas Apron & Christmas Mantle Swag" by Lou Ann Wilde - Lou Ann made a darling Christmas Apron, then adapted the idea to make a cool decoration for her fireplace mantle - way to go, Lou Ann! She also brought a beautiful quilt in made by "Nancy"; an "American Jane" quilt called "Crossroads".

"Most Fun Bag Ever & Son's Wedding Quilt" by Vonda Proctor - Vonda made this fun black and brown tote bag with tons of pockets and keeps making more of them with even more requests! She also brought an amazing brown and powder blue quilt that she made for her son's wedding. They were married in February, but she was a little late, since she made the bride's dress! It is made from great $4 a yard fabric that she got at "1000's of Bolts". She used her extra fabric for the back. Wow!

Ladies - do not be intimidated by these talented quilters - you are talented too and we want to see all of your great quilts! Don't be shy!
