June Show and Tell

The group that met for our June Nimble Thimbles guild meeting was quite small this month.
With the temps hovering between 108-113 degrees this week, I think the smart people headed out of town.
Consequently, we only had a few bring Show and Tell.

Martha showed us her latest finish, with each block completed by paper piecing.

I see a lot of half square triangles.

Fan Quilt made with a Dresden Plate variation.
Have you noticed all the Dresden Plate quilts that have been featured on quilt blogs lately?

Can you help me remember the name of the block used in this quilt?
Usually the blocks are the same color, creating an 8-pointed star in the middle.
*Thanks everyone: HUNTERS STAR!

I love how the designer made hers scrappy instead.
A great way to use up "what you have".

Oh goody...Show and Tell...my favorite part!

No matter how small the group it's still 'good stuff' and fun to look at!

The dresden flowers are genius. Really great quilts.

Hunter's Star is what I have seen it called as noted by earlier commenters.
