Show and Tell: Part 2

Charity Quilts weren’t the only things on show.

Anne had a Felt embroidered pillow she did at a Wendy Williams workshop and a fairy panel quilt. Kersten brought along her Green Elephants quilt and Kate finally finished her improvised quilt ‘Somewhere over the rainbow”.

How are your WIPs (works in progress) coming along? Don’t forget your Michael Miller mini quilts!
