Pieceful Garden

We've got a great group of ladies making this beautiful applique and pieced quilt.  So far they've gotten their leaves pieced and learned back basting from Ellen to complete their applique. I can't wait to see them finished! Here's a tease!

Welcome, Kathy Stipe, Baby Lock Educator!

This past Thursday, we welcomed Baby Lock educator, Kathy Stipe.  Kathy demonstrated our fabulous new Evolution serger with its Extraordin-aire threading and the Ellisimo embroidery/sewing machine. She was very informative and we learned alot of tips! Sorry for so few pictures, I was overwhelmed and forgot until late in the day! Stop by and check out these great products!

This month's Quiltflix was one of my all time favorite tear jerkers...Steel Magnolias. With the  precut kits, the ladies are flying thru them and leaving with a finished or almost finished top!

Quilting Row by Row! Only one more to go!

THe Quilting Row by Row BOM is up to their final row.  We met last Sunday to learn to piece a pretty twisted star block for the final row.  Next month we'll finish up with sashing and a flying geese border.  Look how last months rows are coming along!
