Where has the time gone?    How can it be almost the end of May?    April was a crazy month and I never got the pictures posted from our show and tell.  Then, I actually forgot about it until my naggy friend, Karen, kept reminding me that I was falling behind with my blogging.   So, this post is for you Karen! ;)

We had a small group at Woolies in April and there were only 3 of us with show and tell.   Looks like I'm going to have to get out the whip and get those gals finishing their projects!

First up, Zena came with 2 finishes!  Zena is new to wool applique and got addicted really quickly!

This is called "Bunny Love" by My Red Door Designs.

This one is "Stars and Stripes, also by My Red Door Designs.  

Sandy had a very productive month.   She dominated our show and tell!  (But then, she usually does!)

She finished up the Buttermilk Basin mystery quilt from 2015.   I like the setting she used.   

 She started this red and white quilt and didn't like the fact that is was a square, so added blocks to the top and bottom.   I don't know what pattern this is.  Sorry.

 Here's another design by My Red Door called "Simplicity".  

The scarecrow pillow is from Chestnut Junction called "Scarecrow". 

These next 2 are part of "A Folk Quilt of the Month" by Sarah Sporrer.   Indygo Junction publishes the patterns.

When we were in Minnesota at Karen's house last spring, Sandy spotted a wall hanging that Karen had in her studio and came home and reproduced it.   Not sure who the original pattern is by.  Oh that Sandy!  LOL

The rest are mine.   This cute little patriotic pillow is from a kit that I got at Karen's.   It's by Twigs and Sprigs, called "Little Blessings".

And another My Red Door design called "Market Basket".   Wow, we are all loving their patterns!

Here's another kit I got from Karen quite a few years ago.   (I told's my year of the finish)!

It's by one of my favorite designers, Quilts by Cheri and is called "Gather Love".

Last year I was in the Kim Diehl, Simple Whatnots Club, at my local quilt shop, and finished this one. The other 5 little quilts are on my list of things to finish this year!   Those yo-yos are super tiny!

This flower quilt was one I made a few years ago but never quilted.  So, that was a goal last month.   Get at least one UFO finished!   It's from a Whimsicals book.   Can't find the book right now.   If I do, I'll update.  The background looks almost pink, but it's actually a tiny red and white check.

Here's my Indygo Junction monthly for May.

And, last but not least, this is another little montly by Buttermilk Basin in her Sew Simple BOM.  This one is the one for May.  

So that's it for April's show and tell.   Our Woolies meets this Tuesday for the May show and tell, so, hopefully you'll hear from me again this month!

Thanks for catching us up. Always delightful to see what you and your friends are creating.
I am especially interested in Sandy's setting for the BB mystery blocks. Without all of those HSTs I might actually put my blocks together, too. : )

Lots of great little quilts and a few from patterns I have. I do enjoy seeing the different versions of Buttermilk's Bom.

Awesome awesome projects from the group. Always so inspiring in what you show. So fun to see the different ways projects are finished. I'm soooooo glad you listened to the nag lol. I hope you get the others to share their finishes. Tell them your people want to see lol. Looking forward to later this month hint hint hint, hugs - The Nag

Thanks Anne. We will get those projects done😊😊

Karen said...

You were very productive on your little projects. Some cute finishes among them that got my attention. I think I might have the Cheri pattern that you made but I don't have time right now to do anything with.
Love, love, love that red and white quilt. So different and very eye pleasing.

Wonderful show and tell, Anne! I love the quilting you are doing on your little projects. I am not good at that but you have inspired me to give it another try. Looking forward to your May woolies' projects, too.
