A LITTLE LADY MAKES BEAUTIFUL QUILTS

 Judi A. graciously sent me pictures of her latest finishes.  Above is her Jelly Roll quilt.  Wonderful!  I have to smile because these quilts are way bigger than Judi.  We can't even see her head or feet!
And this is Judi's One Block Wonder.  This quilt amazes me.  I still can't figure out how they make one piece of fabric look so different and so stunning.

Thank you Judi for sharing your beautiful quilts with us.

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME VINTAGE?

I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop last week and the last session of El's Kitchen BOM was being held.  Above teacher Marilyn shows us her finished quilt!
This is a close-up of one of her blocks.  That little apron is so cute.
And this is a close-up of the little flower on her basket in the center of her quilt.
Sue C. had her quilt finished too.
This is a close-up of her apron block.
And these are the appliques that Sue is going to put around her center basket.
These women are so generous.  There is also a recipe in El's Kitchen book.  Marilyn made this wonderful cherry cobbler from that recipe and let me test it!  It is to die for!  Thank you so much!
This is what the group is going to work on next.  The blocks will be from the book Farm Girl Vintage and will probably begin in September.  I'm looking forward to making this one.  The Attic Window has a wide selection of wonderful 30s fabrics.  Of course you don't have to use 30s fabrics.  I wonder what it would look like in Batiks?  Or solids?  Watch the calendar for more registration information.

ARE YOU THIS PROLIFIC?

Since I haven't been able to get to the Attic Window Quilt Shop for the past few days, Diana sent me some pictures.  Kathy (above) has been busy!  I love this umbrella quilt.
Kathy also made this stunning quilt.  I think it is from a Kim Diehl pattern.
Kathy also made this adorable Noah's Ark wall hanging.  My goodness that gal has talent!

A special thank you to Diana for sending these pictures.  I'm glad I got to see these quilts.
Misti sent me a picture of what she's been working on.  I love those fabrics.  Thank you Misti for sharing with us!

  • Ever wonder about how to make hexagons.  Clover and Violet has all you need to know about hexagons. There are links to several tutorials too.
