There's Just So Much Talent!

 This past weekend was the Down South Quilt Show put on by the Busy Needles Guild. There were some extraordinary quilts to be seen and lots of fun things to buy!

Harriette and Lynn each had quilts in the show. 

And Mary S's rooster quilt took first place! Congratulations, Mary. Whoo-hoo!

Our Mary's basket quilt was on display. This will be an upcoming class that you won't want to miss!

Quilts of Valor was well-represented in this booth. They meet at A Scarlet Thread the second Monday of the month. Come on over and join in this worthy cause!

Saturday was a very busy day starting off with Strip Club! Last month's quilt was Prickly Pear (by Cozy Quilt Designs) and Kris did it proud with his version!

He also shared his Chain of Events, made during the Sassy Scarlets retreat, in turquoise and black. It really is stunning done in two colors!

Teresa shows off her Twisted Bargello quilt in very yummy colors. 

And a sweet Christmas quilt made with a vintage Christmas card panel in the center.

Look who finished Trees for Sale! This was a Sassy Scarlets project from a year or so ago. Love that Teresa made two quilts. Mine is still sitting on the shelf in a box!

Lynn's gorgeous wall hanging made with a laser cut menorah. Love the soft colors. Just beautiful!

Here's Lynn's Chain of Events! You wouldn't think it was the same quilt, would you?

The artist at work with a free form art quilt. Yum!

Lynn's patriotic pineapples drew gasps from the Scarlet Strippers!

Lynn whipped up her own Mondo bag! This has to be one of our most popular bag patterns!

She even fit in a little sewing for a cause- these place mats will go to the elderly to brighten their table. Such a lovely thing to do. 

Shelly and her first Jelly Roll 1600! I bet it won't be her last. ;) Love those colors.

Liz and her amazing Barns! quilt. This is gorgeous work. 

Terri went all the way to Alaska to get a kit to make this Alaska's Wild Kingdom quilt!

Laura shows off her version of The Elfin Tree!  It will hang in her classroom. Check out that sweet piano key border!

Marjorie showed off her French General beauty. You cannot go wrong with this fabric. Ever.

Cindy stitched up Laura's All Squared pattern in the very first bundle she bought. It is a very soft, sweet quilt.

Janet did not stop moving to get a shot of her Radio Way quilt. maybe she was following the wavelengths!

Please do not tell me how close Christmas is, okay? Janet is already counting down the days with this cute Advent calendar!

Lisa Marie was At Sea in gorgeous browns, blues with a kapow shot of orange!

Could there be anything cuter than mini monsters? I don't think so! These sweeties were made by Goddess, aka Jackie, for her friend's granddaughter and her cousins. Lucky children. :) 

How about these incredible pillows?! They are for Jackie's daughter to take to college and are from the book Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison. 

Our Jill is making a baby quilt in black and white with a shot of red and vibrant pink. Cute, cute!

Cookie's subtle Celebrate Abe quilt made using the skills she learned in Jodi Barrow's class last year here at AST!

Guess who has a new grandchild on the way? Yep, Cookie! She is already busy making quilts.

I don't think she's too excited, do you? ;)

Mary helped me hold up VA-voom! which is based on the wallpaper design at the Atlanta VA hospital. They took it all down a few years ago but I snapped a photo of it thinking it would make a neat quilt pattern. I spend a lot of time there.

Mary has finished constructing her house quilt for her contractor and

whipped up a Boxtrot for her lighting designer! 

Sharla is a new grandma! This photo is of four generations. Look at that sweet baby!

We are off to Olympia for next month's quilt, with a little detour through High Street!

The luscious colors in Kate Ashbury's High Street fabric pair perfectly with Cozy Quilt's Olympia pattern. 
Stop back by and see what we have in store for you next!
