Show And Tell Themes
These suggestions can be as simple as having five to ten people (depending on how much they like to talk!), or inviting someone to do a "Trunk Show" with their collection of Topic.
Generation Quilts -
Quilts From the Past
Show quilts from several generations of a single family. For example, I have quilts from two of my great-grandmothers, grandmother, mother, me and my daughter. What a great history! Have displayed these quilts at quilt shows over the years.
Block Of the Month (BOM) Quilts.
Great quilts that have been created over the months with guidance from others. Back in 1990's I did several BOM quilts because I was working full time, and receiving a block each month to complete was just my speed.
Have you participated in a Challenge Quilt? If you did, what where the requirements, what were the challenges and what did you learn? There can be a lot of interesting stories from those who have participated.
Round Robin or Row Quilts
What a great way to work with others to make a great quilt. Round Robins are a bit differnent that Row Quilts. But, the end result is the same. You provide the theme, others creativly complete that idea.
Christmas or Holiday Theme
What was the theme of these quilts? Christmas, Easter, Halloween or something else?
First Quilt Last Quilt
Have several selected folks show their first quilt and last quilt. Lots of laughs as folks share their mistakes and problems and how they have grown over the years.

I have participated in Mystery Quilts over the years. Most turn out awesome, some... meh, not so much.

My favorite Mystery Quilt gal is Meadow Mist Designs. Her quilts turn out wonderful!
