Some show and Tell….Finally!!

I have had these quilts saved to share with you all for quite a while!  Be prepared to be BLOWN away!!  I love being surrounded by such talented quilters!  (and thanks so much for sharing!)

Here you go:

From Sharon, she says-   Jacob’s Ladder variation.
Our quilting bee decided to make a variation of Jacob’s Ladder to send to Joplin, MO for the tornado victims. We replaced the 4 patch blocks with 9 patch blocks. When we started to lay out the blocks, there were too many 9 patch blocks and it was distracting. So, we replaced all the 9 patch blocks except the center 9 patch block with plain patches to make 1 block and kept all the 9 patch blocks in the alternating blocks. I hope you can tell where the blocks are in the pictures. The size we made fit either a queen or king size bed. We made 240 9 patch blocks and a total of 80 Jacob’s Ladder blocks. We purchased about 6 yards of each of the background fabrics and had some left over.

Love this variation, Sharon! It’s beautiful!!


This quilt was sent in from Lisa, and she said she was inspired also by the ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ tutorial.  WOW, take a look at this beauty.

Love the scrappiness!! Major stash-buster, for sure!

Oh MY GOODNESS!! You are gonna die when you see this one.  Absolutely gorgeous!  Leanne sent us the picture of the quilt she made for her daughter.

This is what she had about it: ‘It is called “Jen’s NOLA” and was made for my daughter. She went to New Orleans shortly after hurricane Katrina to “help” and has lived there ever since. She chose the fabrics. They represent New Orleans to her. This Snail Trail pattern reminded her of a hurricane. She loved it because even though Katrina was a horrible horrible event, it has brought her to where her heart lives. ‘

Breathtaking….right?!? I just love it!

Here is a beautiful quilt made by Annika from Sweden.  What a beautiful job on this X and O’s variation!  Those batiks are stunning.

Annika, it is beautiful!!

I got this sweet email from Lisa:

‘Just wanted to say hi & thank you so much for your wonderful on-line
tutorials. I am very new to quilting (started a class in January) and have
been inspired to try some new things by your website. I have just completed
my first bed size quilt (the first I made was lap quilt size) and I followed
your Garden of Eden idea. Anyway I thought you might like to see it.
I have also started a Jacobs ladder pattern, still ongoing…
Thanks again & I look forward to more of your tutorials coming up soon!
Best wishes

So fun and cute!! Can you believe this is her first bed sized quilt!? Awesome!
I have one more I just can’t wait to show you.  Susan emailed me this picture of her ‘Summer in the Park’ quilt.  It is so bright and cheery.

I am so amazed by all of you!  Your stories, your talents and your kind hearts always making something to benefit others!  What a GREAT group of people to be surrounded by!

I love getting your emails!  Thank you all for sharing in this fun quilting world with us!  Hope you enjoy this fun little ‘Show and Tell’!

Have a great day!!

ps. I have lots more shop updates, coming at you!
