This is my second time of doing the Round Robin quilts here on QCA,  I joined this group when it started.  I had made this Mariners Compass Block as one of my first Paper  Piecing projects.I did this in all bright batiks  and never really knew what to do with when the RR came about for round #2 I used it as my center block . the ladies in my group were : StefiKay from Nova Scotia,Canada, Nana , from Virginia, Kathy  ,from Florida ,and Jodie from Florida, These Ladies put their heart and souls into this quilt ,and I love each one of them for it. this is just a beautiful quilt . It measures 106qs in. so it will be the biggest quilt I've ever quilted. Now I have to figure out what kinda of special backing I'm going to use on this . thank you so very much ladies for making my quilt a beauty..Barbara

Today Melody and I went to a quilt show in Lee Summit Missouri  after we made a quick stop At Quilters Station , These are just a few of the quilts ,as again my battery on my camera was low. but I did get several good photos .These quilts were all done by the Lee Summit quilt guild. and is a very moderate size quilt show. They had several local vendor here around 20 is my guess an some beautiful quilts. I hope you all enjoy the show .


This first picture is of myself and my friend Chanelle who use to have her sop here in liberty. It was so good to see her again . She is now working at Quilters Station and loves it.  Sorry I could not get pictures of the shop .they do not allow .



Now these are pictures form the show . some of these quilts were huge and I could not get all of the quilt in the picture

This is me trying out the Long arm that was on display , what fun that was .  LOL .


The next one is Melody checking out the plantation Ladies quilt   it was really beautiful a lot of the work was Embroidery


this was really a beauitful quilt ,the picture does not do it justice






this quilt was all hand applique ,and was stunning



this quilt was just beautiful ,this picture just cn't show how much . I voted for this one as best of show . It was just awesome.






Well I hope you all enjoyed, wish my camera had been fully charged.  these were some really amazing quilts ..We had a great  time...
