Liberty Quilt Retreat "Show and Tell" Part 1

Show and tell was fabulous...so many absolutely gorgeous quilts! Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy...

Remember the Signature Block Exchange over on the Jo Morton Stitcher's Yahoo group...well here is a version on Jo's "Kindred Spirit" quilt. 
Beautifully done...
And the center square is so wonderful and unique...last year Kathy Hall gave us all an applique heart made from real vintage fabric and then used a "Jo" fabric for the background piece. The previous year she embroidered two hands clasping each other. This quilt incorporates both into the center block...also notice Jo's signature block!
A close-up of the two hands...absolutely beautiful!
Gorgeous applique...
So beautiful ...
Gorgeous...the colors so vibrant!
Bold and absolutely beautiful...
Another beautiful quilt...the fabrics are wonderful!
Churn Dash quilts are one of my favorite and this one is no exception...beautiful! I love the fabric combinations!
Sew many quilts to share...stay tuned for part 2 of "Show and Tell" at the Liberty Quilt Retreat!

Hugs,

Elaine

It's wonderful to browse your blog and see all the fabulous Jo Morton quilt photos which you took on your retreats.
I love that applique one with the bird and pot of flowers in. I have that book so it may have to go on my to do list when I get my mojo back ;)
I hope you're enjoying your vacation. Hugs Ellyx
