June and July show and tell

Our gathering in July was pretty small.  Summertime is always like that here.  People entertaining or going on trips, makes for much smaller groups.   We did manage to have some show and tell though.   
First up is Nancy.  She applique'd these adorable T-shirts for her grandkids who will be coming to visit soon.  

And she finished this adorable wool kitty mat.  

Jean continues working on her wool sampler blocks. 
I think I mentioned the name of it in last month's post.   

Marilyn finished up this adorable winter mat from Primitive Gatherings.  
(not sure why it rotated)

Sandy continues her prolific ways with lots to show n tell.   
This is a little sewing box that she whipped up.   
I don't know the name of the pattern but maybe she will leave a comment
and let you know if you're interested.   

She also finished this adorable quilt by Verna Mosquera of The Vintage Spool   

a couple of close ups

This one is a kit we got from Karen. (mine isn't finished).
 She had them for sale on her Etsy shop right after quilt market.

(Karen just let me know that she's having issues with the link to her Etsy site, 
so send her an email at

It's called "Potted Primrose" by My Red Door Designs

This  little pillow was a freebie on Cheri Payne's Facebook group. 

And this pillow is one in the Buttermilk Basin truck series.   
If you've seen the patterns, you can see how Sandy changed it up.  

And even though Sandy and I aren't doing our monthly challenges anymore, we still find that we like the same patterns and push each other to work on the same things.  

This one is a pattern called "Thankfulness" by Quilts by Cheri

Sandy's version...

and my version...

This one is called America the Beautiful, also by Quilts by Cheri.  

Sandy made it like the pattern, 

And I chose to leave off the words so that I could use a standard pillow form.   
I'm running out of places to store all these pillows!

I'm not sure what is happening with my pictures and the rotation.  I'm going try to figure it out and continue the post tomorrow.   

See you then!
Hugs, Anne
