Blue Earth Valley Quilters

 The third Monday night of the month (except December and July) the Blue Earth Valley Quilters meet at the Blue Earth High School.  We have a great group and show and tell is always a high light.  We have two rules -- no food and the meetings last only one hour. These are some show and tell that Jacque brought that one of her clients had made. Jacque did the long arm quilting on them.  They are all civil war reproduction fabrics and are quilts that Country Threads of Garner, Iowa designed.  One of the things that Jacque shared was that small blocks and lots of them make a quilt more interesting rather than larger blocks and less of them.  It's very true in these samples.  Makes me want to whip out my rotary cutter and get going! 

  Two very simple blocks were used to make this one.
That is a LOT of triangles!!  But it makes this quilt stunning!  Country Threads offered these as a monthly deal. You got the pattern and a number of fat eights and you added from your "resource center" to complete it.  Resource center???---  your stash - you know- all that fabric you've hidden either in plain sight or under the bed, in the closet, or I've even heard --in the trunk of the car!
