Classical Music (otherwise known as Strip Club) Show and Tell. ;)

 March came in like a lion this year, with a storm of fabulous quilts made by the Scarlet Strippers!

First up? Kris, of course! He's always in the front row and ready to show off his awesome quilts. Up top- marks the Spot made using the Stonehenge line. Love this quilt! The colors are really soft and pretty without being fussy. 

One of Kris' friends recently had a baby and he made this darling Scribbles quilt for her! What a lucky baby. 
This one is made from Adorn It's Long Live Vintage and Vintage Groove lines.

Lisa Marie proudly displays her beautiful American flag quilt! Without purple. 

Oh, no! A peeping Tom! This little guy stuck around all morning hoping beyond hope that we would let him in. Sorry, but the Stitch Lounge is no place for a lounge lizard like you! 

Linda's Marks the Spot using deep, dark chocolates. Yum, it's like a candy box filled with only the best kinds.  No raspberry creme-filled candy here.

She made this Northern Star Air Force quilt  for a family member. It is beautiful, Linda! 

Do you own an embroidery machine? Linda does, as you can see. Using Anita Goodesign's Prayer Garden software, she made this wall hanging in a jiffy! It's absolutely gorgeous. We have a sample hanging in the sewing center for you to see! Come by and you might just leave with an embroidery machine. :) 

Hmm, this patter looks familiar! I know, it's the quilt from our Beginning Quilting class! It looks awesome in black and white, Linda!

Welcome to Strip Club, Melody! She came to show off her very first quilt! Love all of those colors. :)

And a welcome, also, to Melody's friend, Karen! Another Karen? There were 5 total in the store at one point on Saturday! We're very popular. So is Karen's very first quilt! Lovely.

After being caught on video, Angie was a little hesitant to pop out from behind her Slide Show quilt. I tell you what, that September Light line has been a big hit at the shop! I think I might need to get some before it's all gone!

Don't you love this pillow? The pattern is from Pat Wys' Spotlight on Neutrals book! This is going to be on show for Shop Hop. Thank you, Angie, for allowing us to share it with everyone.

Jennifer has been busy assembling her Birds block of the month blocks! Her Goldfinch and Baltimore Oriole are perfection! Jennifer is going to be moving to Tennessee soon so Barb has been making her little gifts...

10 minute table runners! Every time Jennifer sets her table, she will think of her good friend that she met at AST! 

Rose made a colorful version of Marks the Spot! How cute is that? I like that little pop of black. 

Leslie's Marks the Spot with lots of black and orange! Gorgeous work 

Deanna's Marks the Spot was "king" of the show! It's really very striking. 

This is Liz's "Road to Tacoma" quilt. All of the fabrics were collected on a road trip she took with her daughter. There are fabrics from Texas, Arizona, California, Washington and, of course, Georgia! Such a great way to remember a fun trip.

Mary pinch hit for Lynn by showing off her Stashbuster's batik quilt! Look for some of Lynn's quilts to be hanging in the shop during Shop Hop!

Our own Cookie made a throw for her Marks the Spot and added a little pop of red to the mix! 

Sherrie is one of our favorite teachers here at AST.  Gift Boxes is the quilt that will be made for the Beginning Stripping class in May! If you've thought about joining us for Strip Club but aren't too sure about what we do, this is the class for you!!

Next month, join us as the Scarlet Strippers share their Paradise Found quilts! We used the Pomegranate Tonga Treat Strips for this gorgeous quilt. I cannot wait to see what everyone makes!

Once again a very nice job by all. I'm glad no one let the lizzard in. I don't think he had the five bucks anyway. Can't wait to see what everyone does with this months quilt.

Lovely quilts by everyone. A great display of talent!. The lizard looked awfully big.

Hi! It's Lida Enche here. I love seeing all of the photos of the beautiful quilts in your club... And of course I am impressed with the one using September Light! :)
It was a real pleasure meeting you at Quilt Market and I am so happy to hear the fabric is doing well! Peace and happiness. Lida
