Takin' a Break From All That Market Chatter...

I hope you're not too tired of hearing about market but, just in case, how about a little strip club fun?
Did you go to the Quilter's Retreat last month? It was Karen's birthday and we celebrated it with the quilter's choir singing Happy Birthday and homemade cupcakes! She's such a cute birthday girl.

Also cute is Lynn's quilt block! It reminds me of those drawings we did in art class when I was in elementary school. You know, the ones where you color the page then color over the whole thing with black crayon and then scratch away the top layer to create a design. This is much better!

Lynn has also been channeling her creative energy to create an original quilt for her daughter. I see a frog in there, do you?

Angie gathered all of her scraps and made a pineapple quilt using the Pineapple Tool. (I love that ruler!) This quilt is amazing!

Judy made this adorable quilt using a charm pack and the Off Kilter pattern by Jelly Jar Quilts, which happens to be me. (Pardon the tooting of my own horn here- this was my first printed pattern!) She says it is her go-to pattern for charm packs! Thank you so much, Judy!

Terri finished her Paradise Found quilt and it is gorgeous! It's a great pattern and the colors are fab!

Diane shows off her Equinox quilt. It is framed perfectly in that dark green, and

a double wedding ring quilt that she made for her son. I left out the photo of where the dog ate a portion of it. Poor quilt! And maybe poor dog.

Lisa Marie has been "quilting" with a crochet hook. Can't you just see her snuggled up in this on a cold winter's night?

And, she's making one for company! I need to get out my yarn.....

Colleen has been applique crazy! These little banners are from the beginning applique class with Sherrie. They are so adorable!

Mandy brought in a Quilts of Valor quilt that she made for one of our military heroes. Thank you, Mandy, from the families of our brave soldiers. You are a hero!

Karen was at it again, making a teeny-weeny little quilt to hang on the wall of her doll house. This one is a whole cloth quilt, a nice easy project when Amara's cute little hands are there to help!

Laura has done it again! This time her Splendor quilt is in the Nov-Dec McCall's Quick Quilts!

The editor's renamed the quilt Jelly Roll Jingle, but it's the same pattern that you can see hanging in the man cave at the shop! Congratulations, Laura!

This is another of Laura's patterns, yet to be named. It's gorgeous!

Marcia tackled the incredible Diamond Jubilee by Nancy Smith and it came out trumps.

And this little gem is a quilt in progress.

If that weren't enough, she made this stunning quilt using the Drunkard's Path template. Whew! Such a busy girl!

Linda has also been busy making these

super-cute baby quilts

for the Christians Women's Center.

I am sure they will be much appreciated and loved!

Liz has out her shoulder to the wheel and whipped up pyjama pants and

pillow cases for her entire family!

No one gets bored at strip club. :)

Cookie made the Bali Island Hobo bag from Auntie's Two. The colors are luscious and she still has all of her hair after stitching together all of those little strips!

Karen had an idea to make a modern Quilts of Valor quilt. She picked the fabrics and had Harriette put it together using our Mary's Bundle of Joy pattern. It is gorgeous! Subtle, masculine and modern, just like she envisioned. Yep, it's a good one!

So, here we are again, at next months' quilting project! The pattern is Gridlock and the fabrics are from Lida Enche's Painted Summer and September Light collections. I have mine on the cutting table, how about you?

Are you coming to Market Review? If you do, remember this word- Yosemite.

We'll tell you why when you get there!

Saturday, November 17, 10:00 am. If you don't come, you won't get the inside scoop!
