quilt show aka quilt meeting (edited)

Actually it was Bama Belles meeting day and Lois and Bev had quilts to turn in plus Brenda had some tops to show us too.  After seeing them posted and comparing to what is on hand I figured out which one I am missed.  It is currently not at my house so I cannot nab quilt holder to do the honors.  Anyway, enjoy!  I am sure that the children that receive them will----------

ED. NOTE:  My pal Norma reminded me that she has a quilt made from this pattern which appeared  in Fons and Porter's For the Love of Quilting magazine from September/October 2000.  You can see her notes on her blog archive.  F & P called it "Simple Cross"  Good choice for all those 2 1/2 inch scrappy strips PLUS I could use them on the sections I have leftover from Faux Log Cabin!  Still no word on what to call the one in the next post above.

  1. All I can say is WOW!!! Y'all have been busy! Maybe it is a good thing I didn't make it because I wouldn't have had anything to show. :( I must get busy!
    These are beautiful, by the way!

  2. Lots of very happy scrappy quilts! Love the chicklets I've been looking for a pattern to it :)

  3. They were all beautiful !!! I am quilting my 2nd one, almost 1/2 done .

  4. I always enjoy seeing the showing of quilts from the Bama Belles! Lois' quilt reminds me of my "yet to be finished" Simple Cross quilt.

    All I can say about Brenda's Sampler quilt is, WOW!
