Quilt Group Show & Tell, FREE Bag Pattern & Bobbin Necklace

These are recent Show & Tell pictures from the Dhahran Oasis Quilt Guild here in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.

 This above was Kim's first pieced quilt top.  I think she did a great job.  She was so proud of her work.

 Julie, the President of the Quilt Guild made this nice quilt for her son.  It has a Texas theme.  She used I think she said 20 charms and did large sashing to make the charms go further.  I think the quilt turned out great.  She did a diagonal zigzag curve type of quilting.

 This is the back.  The Texas border is cute.  I think she used flannel for the backing.


LARGE CARRY ALL BAG WITH FREE PATTERN LINK

 2 ladies in the Quilt Guild made these awesome carry all bags from a FREE pattern.  This was their Show & Tell.  It took them 4-6 hours to make them.  The bags are huge and carry lots of stuff, would be great to carry all your Show & Tell stuff to your Quilt Meetings.  Would also be great to carry all your towels & such to the beach.


The great thing about this bag, besides the pattern being FREE, is that is uses 6 Fat Quarters all being different!  So each side looks totally different.

 This is the other side.  See how it has different fabrics?  Like this bag but want to know where to get the FREE Pattern?  Go to the Publisher Martingale at http://www.shopmartingale.com/.  Go to the FREEBIES tab at the top.  On that page you can register for a free signup of their newsletter.  Then you can download any of their FREE patterns.

 The lady in the beige shirt in the picture above had this fun necklace on and I wanted to take a picture of it to share with yall.  She said you can take a regular metal bobbin, have it gold or silver plated, then attached a pendant bail.  How simple is that!?

 This was from a Free Motion Workshop

 Close Up of the Free Motion Quilting

 Those new to Free Motion Quilting were looking at the board then scribbling on paper to get the feeling for the stitches.

 One lady's Free Motion Quilting practice sandwich

 2 ladies finished their very first quilt tops, then sandwiched then & pinned them.

One lady finished this block.  I like the colors.
