Piece of Pie Ala mode

Meet our friends and get a sneak peek at their new book coming out here shortly. Brenda and Bonnie of Pie Plate patterns. The quilt with Bonnie sneaking a peak out to the side (with the brown curved piecing) is the quilt that will be on the front cover. If you want to see it up close and personal, it is in our front window at the store. We are soo excited to have it on display!!!!! And I would tell you the name of each quilt here, but the paper that I wrote them down on ----- is LOST!!!!! and I can't's the half-hemizers..... Sorry. It will be a surprise to all of us what the names are.

However, I can tell the fabric line of most of them. The fabric line, well not the dark brown one, is Serenity -- bought at our store. I sure would like to know the name of the dark chocolate fabric though...

This fabric line is Cotton Blossoms. We don't have this.

Here Bonnie on the left and Brenda on the right are holding up two different quilts --- that are the SAME!!! Just the applique design is different ..... and well the fabrics too of course.

And darn it all if that half-hemirzers isn't turning into "more-often-then-not-hemizers (just don't correct me on my spelling when I am making up words). I have drawn a blank on the fabric lines. That is so sad for me to admit that, I will try better.
Happy Stitchin and may you not have to de-stitch. ;)

Come Buggy with US!

Come Buggy with Us ended up being such a huge success for us, we had to do it a second night. Have you seen the Hearts and Star pattern?? well this is what we did - its an older pattern. Here are a few pictures of some of the gals.

I had to take a picture of this -- this is what happens when you accidently put TWO blades in your rotary cutter. It's not pretty! But it made me smile.

Some finished blocks..... Can't wait to see the whole quilt finished.

Round Robin

Here we all are meeting to swap our "Star and Stripe" blocks.
Do we look confused yet?? Just wait it will make sense..... PROMISE!

Yup.... still confused

Kinda scary when even the teacher looks just as confused as us. Not really! JK ;) She teaches for a paycheck and quilts for love.
Here are all of our blocks swapped and laid out. Opps can you see a few mistakes???? OK I will help you---- if you look closely some of the long up and down rectangle blocks were actually made to be horizontal rectangle blocks. Gonna have to do some rearranging.
So this little over-achiever has hers all sewn together. The first one that I have seen. Isn't it beautiful?!?!?!?!!!! And she even figured out how to get the horizontal rectangle blocks to fit in. (You would never have known there were issues if I hadn't opened my big mouth and told you.) Can you find them???
Here is a picture of our first Round Robin, Flowers in my Garden.
