What Else Do You Do in the Dog Days of August?

It has been so stinkin' hot here in Georgia. Upper 90's, some 100's. Just awful. So, to counteract the heat, the Scarlet Strippers gathered together to cool off and show off!

Georgianna came in ready to shop with her new bag that she made! It's adorable. Lovely, juicy colors and superb craftsmanship. I think we need a bag class, don't you? ;) ;)

Sherrie was up early and brought Windows to the World, Laura's newest bundle pattern! If you know Sherrie you know, when she has a choice, it's going to be batiks. Good thing we've started making batik bundles! They're a steal at $40 and they. are. gorgeous!

And if you really know Sherrie, you know how much she loves Amy Bradley designs. This little cutie is available as a free pattern just for our AST shoppers! It can say anything you want but we thought you'd like to know how much we love you.

Dr. Seuss was on the loose at Lynne's house this past month. Good thing she caught all those crazy characters and got them pinned down in this adorable quilt!

Do you remember Picture Frames from January? Here's Lynne's KING sized version. No wonder it too her so long to get it made! It's really very pretty and worth the wait.

Deanna, the Serger Queen struck again with this amazing Honeyberries quilt! If you click on the photo you can see the detail. It made what, to me, was a so-so quilt and transformed it into something awesome!

And, she got her Hashbrowns Christmas quilt done! Her dining table is going to sparkle and shine this coming Christmas. Oh, and check out the tassels- she made them!

I love Barb. She pretty much tells it like it is and does it as she want to get it done. Which is why her Hashbrowns quilt isn't Hashbrowns- it's a log cabin! And it is positively gorgeous!

After show and tell it's time to get down to business. The girls all had their strips in hand, a pattern to read and Sherrie lead them through the instructions to make yet another beautiful quilt for their collections.

Have you seen lotus blossoms? There is a pond near my house that has been taken over by them. Every year, starting in May and going through July, the lotus blossoms appear like pink popcorn. Each day is a new show and I can't help but stop and snap a photo or two. (Or three or ten...) If you love them as much as I do.......

you are going to love August's strip club quilt!

It's called Lotus Blossom and it's done in luscious bright batiks! You should have seen the choices for background and accent colors - there are going to be some stunning quilts next month!
Don't forget to come by and see them.

Tomorrow? How about a few snaps from Peggy Barkle's Curvaceous Cabins class? Yes? Okay!
