September Show and Tell

I have more to share with you from the Nimble Thimbles Show and Tell this month.

Margaritte discussed a Mosaic Heart Collage method where she laid fabric sections down with Mistyfuse fusible web, and then "quilted the heck out of it".
Free tutorial on the method is offered by Terrri Stegmiller at Stegart

Ruth finished her Thimbleberries quilt.

and she also finished a Halloween wall hanging.

Laura A. is on the mend, after a difficult year battling cancer.
Through her illness, and as she was going through chemotherapy, one of her friends gather up several sections of quilt blocks and completed 2 of her quilts.
Listening to her story of appreciation brought tears to my eyes.
Isn't this really what quilting is all about?

This wonderful world of quilters, and the kindness shown, continues to amaze me.

This was the second quilt her friend completed.

The original blocks were from a Block of The Month at a local quilt store.

More beautiful quilts were shared by the members of our guild.



Another touching story:
A new member brought this quilt she had just made as a gift for friends who had just adopted 4 little girls this year.
They are in their 50's, and have raised a family of their own already.
The mom called and said "We have another little girl coming into our family, and as of today she loves Princesses and purple. Could you make her a quilt to match her interests?"

Mission accomplished.

It's so much fun to see them all. The little princess is wonderful. I also like that Halloween wall hanging. I've gotten out out scarecrow and he is on our front door. I think he has been with us for nearly 20 years now. :)

Wonderful quilts, as usual. But the stories are the best! We are so fortunate to be a part of the quilting community. Thanks for sharing!
