St. Louis 16 Patch Quilts

 Yesterday was our fun day
with the Mesa Ladies.
A few of us gather at our church
have a wonderful lunch
and work on quilts.
 Amanda and Gina both were putting the binding on their
St. Louis 16 Patch quilts.
This quilt is definitely on my "to-do" list!
A great stash buster.
 Gina's version is for her son who graduates
from high school next week.
She chose more masculine fabrics
and added borders.
 Amanda is our hero.
She makes quilts for each of her children's school teachers
as a thank you gift.
How wonderful is that?
 The St. Louis 16 Patch 
is offered with a free tutorial
by Stephanie
of SKBurton Designs
 This quilt has really hit the blogging/ instagram world in popularity.
Seems like everyone is making it.
I like it because it can be made from Fat Quarters
cut into large 4-inch squares,
and works up fast.
 The back of Gina's quilt is as interesting as the front.
 Our friend Pat Roche
did the long arm work.
I'll share more tomorrow 
from the Show and Tell 
by the other ladies.

Ha! I'm slowly working on a 16-patch that has 2.5 inch (2" finished) squares.
