I know, I'm late. Please forgive me. But, if you were at strip club on Saturday, you know that I have been a bit under the weather with a nasty cold courtesy of my granddaughter, Emma. Thank you, Emma, you are such a sharing girl.
Anyway, this was our last strip club of the year and we went out with a bang! There were some awesome quilts, lots of fun door prizes and then a sampling of what you will be seeing next year in our classroom at AST! In fact, it was so much it's going to take two posts. So here is part 1 for you. Enjoy!
Look at this crowd! I love all of these people. They are so much fun to be around.
It was nice to see Teresa and some of her beautiful little quilts. She has such a great sense of color.
Each one is like a little jewel.
So cute! Who doesn't love this classic combination of color? Lovely. It was Teresa's happy birthday on Saturday! It was nice of her to spend it with us. :)
Ginny shared her this gorgeous quilt made from a Quilt of Valor pattern. It's for a family member for Christmas. It is beautiful!
Carol finished her Rainbow Chain quilt from our last retreat. It is so stinking cute! I love the colors.
Lisa Marie has been busy making bundle quilts. This one is a batik version of Border Patch.
And this is the beginnings of her Mission Frame quilt. Every quilt that Lisa Marie makes has a little bit of purple in it. I'm not sure but it might be her favorite color!
Angie rocks! She actually made last month's strip club quilt! She was pretty excited to get her 20% off background coupon for completing it. It's just really pretty.
Fore!!!!! Gerri made this super-cute golf-themed quilt. The back is just as cute as the front. I think her husband is going to love it.
You can always count on Stephanie to put her own twist on a pattern. This is Timber, one of the first strip club patterns. She set her trees to stand tall instead of tipping over and it gives her quilt a modern feel.
Colleen had two quilts to share- one made from a bundle (I love this fabric. So pretty!)
And one made from her stash. This is a classic light and shadow log cabin pattern. What isn't classic is her color choice and the fact that at the center of each block is not the traditional red square but a chicken! Seriously, who doesn't love a good chicken quilt?
Kris came with his own quilt show. Really. I don't know how he does it, but he makes the best quilts. This one was a block of the month from Quilts 'n' Fixin's from last year. Beautiful!
And this luscious trapunto quilt made everyone swoon. He said that stuffing the flowers took longer than making the top. It was totally with the effort, Kris.
This Barn Dance quilt was my favorite one of all. It's made with 30's fabrics set on a black background. That choice transported this quilt into the 21st century.
Here's the back. If you look closely, the quilter used yellow thread to quilt each flower making the back standout on its own.
Kris' Love and Comfort quilt. I love the chocolate brown he chose for the setting triangles and the bold pop of raspberry as his border. Oh,wait! That's because I helped him pick them out. hee hee
A sweet little Mary Engelbreit top and
a gorgeous throw made from Martinique by 3 Sisters for Moda. Lovely!
Doesn't this make you want to come to strip club?! It is so much fun!
Come back by tomorrow and I'll have the rest of the stripper quilts and the class projects that Angela shared. (Blogger will not let me add any more photos to this post right now.) You are going to love them!
