Whoopty Doo, it's a Bloomin' Rose Quilt Party

Yep, we had it, the unveiling of the Bloomin' Rose Sigi block exchange. Last December for a present we gave to each one that wanted to participate, a quilt block with our signature on it. There were 16 that made and signed the blocks, well, mostly. We had some catching up to do today with the signatures, but, we got it done. We were to have 6 months to do something with them, or not. So it's June, that means party and Show and Tell. Show and Tell is the same as it was when you were in grade school. Since quilters are all children at heart and we never did grow up, we have Show and Tell.

Here is our lovely group of talented gals with their quilts they made:

Shirley our most wonderful Southern Bell Hostess

This is Carol one of our newer quilters that continues to amaze

This is Sherrill's quilt.

Evelyn is the Queen Bee of the guild.

Cici used the leaves to create a secondary element to the quilt.

Ginny used some fabric that had been on her shelf for the longest.

Joan is a master quilter and was the first to finish her quilt.

Yours truly
Deloris's lovely quilt

Dot's soft and lovely quilt, if you click on the picture you can see the unique sashing she did.

Mary's quilt, if a prize was awarded, she would have won.

Ruth's was the most planned to show off the signatures.
All the signatures on the 4 roses were surrounded by butterflies.

It's always amazing to me how all these gals started out with the same blocks and all the finished quilts looked so different. Flowers on point or in square blocks; butterflies added, appliqued or pieced borders really brought out the colors of the quilt.

That's the beauty of quilting and the art in it. Our chance to be creative with a practical craft that we and our family can
enjoy for years. We had the worlds best cake to eat and even the flowers wanted some. Good Food; Good Friends; Good Times...smile

What a fantastic collection of quilts - thanks for sharing. I, too, am constantly amazed how quilters can use the same pattern and completely change the look :)
