The theme is Arts and Crafts designs based on the work of William Morris, Charle Rennie Mackintosh, Frank Lloyd Wright and others.
This is a great space for a small quilt show. The last show was by Kathy Suprenant. Check the dining room every month or two to see what's new.

The QBC group wins the prize for finishing their group project. We saw lots of examples of this particular pattern at the Quilt Show. They found it in an Australian magazine I think
They all decided to make the same pattern in different fabrics. Marie Meyen, at the top, picked Australian aboriginal prints. Did she make two?!!
Loaves & Fishes detail
Sara Chappell worked with her Kaffe Fasset stash (which kept increasing miraculously it seemed)
Kathie Baldwin still had some Patterns of Progress, 40s reproductions
for her Flowers in the Attic
It's a great pattern to show off a fabric collection---
would work great with 5" charm packs or 10" layer cakes.
Of course, there were a few who danced to their own drummers

There were more. I just didn't take enough notes.

Ferrol did a great job of decorating.
Here's a 1930s Grandmother's Flower Garden behind a tea table.
And on the theme of small pieces:
Here's a detail of a 1930s postage stamp quilt.
An idea that inspired Joyce Colton to make a '30s style postage stamp out of new prints.

The small group the Sew Whatevers is meeting this weekend at the Lied Lodge in Nebraska City for a retreat. The group project is a Four-Patch based on this fabric from Kaffe Fassett. It's a little purpler than the photo and has yellows, carmel browns, salmons and turquoise in it.
Wendy's start for a strip set
Participants made four patches based on the color palette and exchanged them.
Sarah's start for an alternating block setEverybody brought fabric and a plan to set them.
Georgann's start for a zig-zag strip set with added 9-patches
They are still up there sewing. I had to come home.
Sarah is filling in with dark purple x's
Let's hope to see some finished tops at the next show and tell at guild.
