May we All be Together Again Soon!- now with more pictures!

Since we are all still socially distant, we are once again doing a virtual show and tell for the month of May.  I know once we are all together again, the line for show and tell will be a mile long.  Won't that be wonderful!

First up this month is a quilt Chris Kuehl is working on for her grandson.  Chris says, "I started this two years ago for my oldest grandson.  He just turned 16.  He loves the Partiots, Tom Brady, Buffalo Sabres and hockey, four wheeling, hunting with his grandpa.  I combined all of these like a t-shirt quilt for Zach's favorite things.  The pattern is Thank You Stars, by Marianne Fons"
 


Martha Lorshbaugh finally finished her oldest UFO- started in 1997 (an instant antique!)
The star blocks were from a Joann Fabrics block of the month, but Martha changed the setting.  She decided to play with free motion quilting designs, so the quilt is called "Playing in the Stars"

Again, I am hoping more people will share pictures with me of things they are working on.  I'm working on ways to keep us all connected during this time apart. 

UPDATE!
Melanie Tubinis sent in some pictures of what she and her mom, Mary Ann Watson, have been working on.  Watch your newsletter for an episode of the "Lucy and Ethel" show!!

              Mary Ann Watson made this Christmas quilt top out of 3 one yard cuts of fabric.

 Mary Ann finished piecing and did the binding on this Spiderman fabric quilt. Her sister, Nancy, had started it for her grandson before she passed away last year. Melanie did the machine quilting.

 Melanie practiced some ruler work quilting and will use these to put between the teflon pans to keep them from getting scratched  in the cupboard.

Melanie used this beautiful log cabin block from a friend to make a pillow for the living room couch.

Keep those pictures coming!  I'll update as they come in.
