I think I’ve forgotten how to blog it’s been so long! I’ve been spending every spare moment planning our workshop with Terry Atkinson and working on new samples and displays for the shop and everything else has taken a back seat…shame on me! We’re in the home stretch now, though, with the workshop (sadly) behind us, and just about everything ready for the two quilt shows where we’ll be vending in March (you DO have the Heart of Georgia Quilt Guild’s Festival of Quilts and the Lake Oconee Quilt Guild’s Quilt-Fest on your calendar, right?) Preparations for Shop Hop are coming along so perhaps things will begin to get back to normal (whatever that is!) around here. I’m slowly, but surely getting caught up and I thank you for your patience!
We’ve had beautiful quilts brought in recently to share and I have been very remiss in getting these accolades posted…we enjoy seeing your projects so much, and just because I’m a lazy blogger, please don’t stop with the sharing!
Ann made this cheery scrap quilt from her Batik scraps…the strips finish at 1”!!!
Carolyn has been busy! Love the two-color baskets quilt (I am itching to make a two-color quilt!), and those flying geese? Be still my heart! Wish I had a better picture of this quilt…it is gorgeous!
I’m sure many of you remember Claire, who worked in the shop for a short while (until her husband up and whisked her off to Macon for a job transfer!). When Claire started working with us, she knew how to sew but did not quilt. In less than three months, she made her first quilt (on the left) using our Beginner’s Quilting program, and quickly moved on to her second quilt (on the right) which she made using a vintage fabric that had been gifted to her. She even modified the pattern to take best advantage of the fabric print! Smart girl…we sure miss her at Sweet Home!
Leiann whipped out a Texas Two Step baby quilt for a gift in between finishing up her PhD projects!
Ruthanne finished her 2011 First Sunday Block Party Thangles BOM…you can finish quickly when you keep up with making the blocks each month…who knew? I love how this color selection turned out…it is the batik version and I wasn’t sure about it when I first picked out the fabrics, but I love how the dark block background makes those stars shine!
That’s all for this post. There is a lot going on around here, but some things I can’t share right now. I have pictures from the workshop with Terry, but since we were testing a new pattern for her I can’t post those yet. Teaser…you’re going to love her new design! And if you missed her workshop, we had a fantastic time…just sayin’!
