Thimble & Threads Quilt Guild

This post is to showcase some beautiful quilts from the Thimble and Thread Quilt Guild in St. Louis.
Sure hope they enter the Show Me Quilt Fest in St. Louis - June 2012   SMQF


Have entered another CQ Round Robin and posted my block today to Japan.  It is always exciting to see what another culture brings to the finished block.  Anyone in the RR always surprise me with their talents and ideas.  It is so much fun.

The block has cotton, silk, satin, velvet, and sateen fabrics.  The small gray section has elephants in the design and was a tie I purchased in India.  I plan to use it as a pillow on my bed.

Valentine Swap

I have just finished my Valentine swap and will post to the receiver on Saturday.
I am very pleased with it and hope sure the receiver likes it too.  When you do a swap or round robin, the stress is doing work that someone else will like.  The center fabric of the this heart is a taupe fabric with beading in the fabric in the design of a tree branch.  Sorry it does not show up real well in this photo.
