The first part of last week found me without the Internet due to rain storms. Aargh, it was very frustrating! Mostly because I know how much you want to see the photos from strip club. So, let's get going and take a peek at the fabulousness that was created by our Scarlet Strippers!
I don't think Ginny sleeps. Ever. She used the Take 5 pattern and created this adorable tree skirt!
And a sweet table runner.
and yet another!
Plus place mats for friends and,
her strip club quilt, Tree Lot! Good night above.
Lisa Marie started make a Tree Lot quilt in, you guessed it, purple!
And in a more traditional color way. Beautiful work, Lisa Marie!
Deanna brought in this darling autumnal table topper and
a Tree Lot table runner. Table runners ruled this month.
Laura brought in a sample of her newest pattern. We love Laura's designs at the shop so much and this one is stellar. Brilliant work, Miss Laura!
Diana shared her Stack and Whack made with the Chickadee line by Laura Paschkis. Love the colors in this quilt!
Gail is going to keep her sewing room nice and neat with her new Keeps It Tidy pin cushion and scrap bag. You can find the pattern in the shop.
She also whipped up a cute little cosmetic bag! These make great gifts.
Gerri was busy as a bee making a reversible quilt for her mom and dad. This is Dad's side,
and this is Mom's side. What a great idea, Gerri!
Lynn came to the AST Quilter's Camp and made this quilt using the Lazy and Lovin' It book and the Lazy Angle ruler. Everyone who came had a great time and made some beautiful projects.
Lynn even took her scraps and made a star! I see some applique in her future.
This little gem is a convergence quilt done in lime green and purple. It is gorgeous!
As is her kimono quilt. Really, this girl has only been quilting for just over a year!
This is the Sassy Scarlets project for July and August, from the Charmed and Dangerous book. Again, just fabulous work!
There is kind of a running joke that Mary cannot finish a project very often. So, the fact that she made six little bags for her girlfriend's getaway (to celebrate her birthday) was a milestone moment!
Cookie has been busy embroidering a sweet red work snowman and
making this stunning Pam Kitty Morning quilt! Good news, they are reprinting the kitty panel!!
Oh, gee whiz. Angela grabbed my camera and took this shot of the quilt I made for my son's wedding gift. It's from Tula Pink's Prince Charming line which was perfect because the wedding colors were turquoise and yellow!
If you've been in the shop the past few months, you know that I have been busy cutting up water bottles to make "chandeliers" to decorate for the wedding. 340 water bottles to be exact. Oy.
And last, but certainly not least, is Kris' gorgeous Diamond Double quilt. That salmon color is amazing!
Angela has done a superb job getting our Block of the Month program up and running this year! The newest addition is this incredible flower basket quilt by Zebra Designs. I think it's going to be very popular! You can always count on Angela to come up with something extraordinary for our customers.
So, here is August's strip club quilt! The pattern is called X Factor and we chose to make it in soft pastel batiks. It's really lovely and I cannot wait to see how this quilt is interpreted.
The rest of last week found me in the throes of wedding preparations. Finalizing details for decorations, making a wedding cake and lots of pies. Good thing I had my daughter, sister, sister-in-law, nieces and nephew to help me or I would never have finished! But, it all got done, the wedding was beautiful and my son and his new bride are a happy pair of newlyweds. Here's a few shots of the happy occasion:
The pavilion at Indian Springs, all decked out in wedding finery..
The happy couple- Nathan and Amanda!
The ring ceremony.
Flat Nathan and Flat Amanda had some pretty interesting adventures thanks to the wedding guests!
There were even Polynesian dancers!
Cutting the cake.
They're off to a great start. :) (And I just noticed that all 3 of my children are in this picture.)
Congratulations, you two. You deserve all of the happiness.
