A stained glass loon quilt was also made by Liz

A work in progress, Jane Eaton holds an original block she calls "Family" which depicts herself, her brothers and sisters. 
This wonderful block was NOT appliquéd; she designed and pieced it!

RIGHT:  Jane holds a tiny paper-pieced Sunbonnet Sue quilt she drafted for her sister to make for a quilt show auction.  Jane secretly bid on the quilt and won it with the intention of giving it to back to her. "It's going to be hard to part with," says Jane

Liz took a pretty star block to make a little mat

Here's Mary Anne Brown's fifth (and last) bridesmaids' quilt made by sewing squares in a straight set then cutting the entire top on the diagonal and re-sewing.  Neat!
