Oh, So Neglected.

Good night above! It's been forever since you've had a post from us! Christmas is long gone, the New Year is here and we've already had our first Strip Club of 2011!


 First up is a first time stripper, who brought in her Dream Catcher quilt done with everything but the binding! It is beautiful! First quilt, first strip club- I think we've got another quilting sister!


Next we have Jennifer, who is showing off her Eggs Benedict Breakfast Club quilt. Have you been to Breakfast Club? We have a great time! Plus, we actually eat breakfast! Quilting and food? You can't beat that!


This is her December Silver Thimble Club quilt made with my favorite Oz line. Yum.


 And her amazing Dream Catcher quilt. I  love the gold. It's like sunshine.


 I don't think Lynne slept during the month of December. She was too busy making quilts, like this little nature-inspired deer quilt and...


 a Dr. Seuss quilt for her grandson. It's adorable! Who doesn't love Dr. Seuss?


 Plus, her version of Eggs Benedict from Breakfast Club!


 And, as if that were not enough, Petal Pop! Phew! I'm tired just thinking of all the work that went into making these quilts. I need to find out what Lynne and Jennifer eat.


 Sandy shared an adorable baby quilt made from Zoology by Michael Miller. She used All Washed Up's Just Can't Cut It pattern which allows for seeing lots of those adorable animals. :)


 Linda brought in her oh-so-purple Take 5 quilt made from one of our clearance kits. This one is for her granddaughter, who had the best time picking things out for Grandma to make.


 This peace sign is the center of yet another quilt. Linda said it took a long time to make, and I can see why!


 And, last but not least,. Miss Barbara shows off her Dream Catcher from December. Lovely work, Barbara!
Have you ever tried to photograph a hurricane? No? Me either. That was until Saturday, when I tried to snap  a shot of Pat Wys, who was at AST for Silver Thimble Club. Trying to get her to stop for even a second was impossible. The woman has more energy than the Energizer Bunny!


But I did get lucky with one photo of this quilter's tote that she designed. The pattern comes with instructions on how to make the bag, a sewing clutch and a journal cover. They are all adorable.  Pat is an amazing pattern designer. Plus, she's a great teacher, giving you the benefit of her extensive knowledge of quilting, including every woman's built-in "quilt rack." Yes, it is what you think it is. Oy!


 Of course, Strip Club would not be complete without the reveal of the next month's quilt! What are we making for February? Picture Frames in fabulous 30's reproductions. Mmmmm. Lovely.

Come back next month to see how each of us interpreted this quilt! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
