My Quilt Place – April 2014 Show and Tell


April has been another busy month for members. What beauties you all have created! Take a look at this sampling from the past month’s uploads – maybe you’ll be encouraged to show a few of your own. As always, you’ll find these and more on My Quilt Place Galleries. Click on the quilt to go directly to its page at MQP, where you can make comments!

A beautiful flower! Cheryl Dawson‘s QUILTED PAPHIOPETALUM. (Interpretation for the less scientific among us: it’s a Lady Slipper Orchid.)


Joan Kawano created RAINBOW 9 with a perky pink blossom; you can almost feel the sunshine radiating off of it!

The Easter Bunny visited some houses during April, and Joan caught him in the act…

On a related note: Remember MQP’s Vickie Smith, who quilts and quilts and quilts with a group called Quilts from Caring Hands? I had the privilege of meeting Vickie last week at QuiltWeek in Paducah! She and a friend didn’t just stop by the Paducah event, their husbands gave them this “trip of a lifetime” for their birthdays, how cool is that!?! They’re from OREGON! They stopped to ask a question, and Vickie noticed my name tag, making the “hey, it’s you!” connection because we’d e-mailed about the Quilts from Caring Hands article. I was SO excited to meet Vickie (and her friend, of course) in person!
