Show & Tell

On the second Saturday of each month the Jinny Beyer club meets at the shop. We have show and tell, help with quilts people are working on, talk of new events and happenings at the shop and usually have an ongoing project throughout the year. The last few meetings I have been showing the progress and asking their opinion on our shop hop quilt. It is a learning experience for all.

I shared part of the design process in an earlier blog, “Design Dilemmas.”  The shading of the fabrics, what to use as a background, none of it ended up being what I had originally planned but I’m very happy with the changes I made.

Don’t forget that the Quilters’ Quest shop hop is just around the corner.  You’ll find details at
