Sherron’s Sharing…

As you know, the Clubhouse Quilters meet every Wednesday in the North Hall…if there is a Caravan visiting our RV Park then quilting starts at 10am…if there is NO Caravan then we can start any time…the earlier the better! 

Now not to be inhospitable or anything… BUT we obviously love it when there is no Caravan!  (If you are wondering what a Caravan is…well it’s a bunch of RVs..usually a Club of some sort and they all come rolling into our park as a huge group…sometimes as many as 20 or 25 motorhomes!  They stay in one area of the park and they use the Clubhouse for group meals and meetings, dances, games, etc.…)  When they rent their space, it’s with the understanding that the quilters get the North Hall from 10-4 every Wednesday…which means we wait for them to leave and at 10 o’clock we march in and take possession!

Today was such a day…with one exception…many of the Caravaners were quilters…so the Clubhouse was FULL of lovely ladies ohhing and ahhing our quilts!  When they saw that many of us are ‘Woolies’…one of the ladies, Sherron, ran back to her trailer for some show and tell of her own!

Sherron’s first quilt took my breath away!!  INcredible!  It’s a cathedral quilt all pieced by hand and done in Civil War fabrics!!  Be still my heart!!


Do you see the pattern…the navy is forming the border and also forming a grid throughout the quilt! ST U N N I N G ! !




Here is Sherron’s next row…not sure how she does it but it does look like something that I would like to try…maybe a pillow or a small table topper?


Yup…I will have to keep my eye open for a book or a pattern on how to do this!

P1170124I didn’t get the name of this quilt or the designer but one thing is for sure…this is one Caravan that can come again and often!!


Thanks Sherron, for sharing your talent …and please do come again!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P


  1. Sharon is very talented!!..and that's coming from a non-quilter!!

  2. Sharon's quilt is just too cute. The vignettes are adorable and the embellishments absolutely wonderful. What a fun project.

  3. I love the quilt with people on it. I am beginning to think I love applique as they make such neat things.

  4. Love the cathedral quilt with the Civil War fabrics. Absolutely gorgeous.

  5. You are so fortunate to have a designated meeting place for your group to sew! Sherron's quilts are just stunning. Thanks so much for sharing them with us.

  6. Hi P, love the show and tell. ? I read on someone's blog last week that they were having a week of Heart and Hand - sound familiar? I can't seem to find it now.

  7. Yes, my heart is still doing heart palpitations. You just never know who you'll meet do you and their quilty talents!

  8. Hey, I am doing that quilt with the wool, it's an OLD Cheri Saffiote Payne pattern, we were doing it through my LQS Cranberry Quiltworks in Brea. Where was your friend doing it from?

  9. Are you freaking kidding me? She did the cathedral window as her first quilt? I'm so jealous. I wish I could have done it for my first. However, I have since tried it and I do love the pattern. I'm just intent on making a large bed quilt, "one day". :)

    The other quilt is just as great to the eye.

  10. Here is a free tutorial for the cathedral windows block. I used it in the past and its very informative and easy to follow. Plus its FREE!

  11. Well how fun to have a caravan of quilters - her quilts are really stunning!!

  12. Paulette,Sharons quilt is awesome.
    I have a tutorial on my blog.

  13. Wow, what a great surprise. I have a cathedral window on my quilting bucket list!

  14. That is one absolutely beautiful quilt!

  15. OMGosh! Wow, that Sherron is really something! That is the sweetest wool applique quilt pattern! Thanks, Beth, for your comment about the pattern. I was going to have Paulette put out an APB for the caravan so we could get the info!

  16. Wow, wonderful quilts! Wonderful!
