Elgin Piecemakers Meeting -part 2

Jacqui always has interesting projects to show us. She recently went on a quilt retreat at a cottage with some quilting friends and got lots accomplished.

Heather made this quilt as a gift for someone who likes blue and white.

This quilt is hand-quilted.

The blocks in this quilt were made from leftovers from another quilt.

I would like to learn how to make one of these braid quilts.

Pat made this quilt for her son and his bride--the wedding is in a couple of weeks.

This quilter is a real artist--something I can only aspire to be...This wall hanging will look great at Hallowe'en!
M-L made this casserole cover as a wedding gift--It includes a table runner and another piece that wrap around the square casserole. The pattern is by Brenda Miller.

My show and tell was my (incomplete) fall table runner. I hope to finish it this weekend and will blog about it at that time.


  1. Hey Gail...start saving 2 1/2" strips and I'll show you how to do the braid one of these days :-). I need to do another braid quilt soon so we can work together!

  2. All wonderful projects, looks like you all had a wonderful meeting.

  3. Great quilt show...thanks for the treat!
