Putting a Little Love In It!

Um, it's February already? Good night above!
I hope you were able to stay safe and warm during our annual snow event! I know how some people stayed cozy- they sewed! A lot!

Kris proudly shows of his Blurred Lines from January. Love the use of navy and gray in his version.

Sassy Squares? You bet! Kris put his own twist on this fun pattern.

Mini Can Can? Why, yes.

How about a medium Can Can? OR.........

A REALLY big Can Can! Kris can can, can you? It's made using the Kaleidekite Ruler. Clever, clever.

Sue made this beautiful Windmills at Night during our last retreat. Something about sewing with friends makes Sue very productive!

Stephanie's been hard at work making this gorgeous Strip Twist by GE Designs and

a verdant Chain, Chain, Chain and

a sweet little baby quilt. :) 

Something was fishy in Brenda's sewing room last month!

And can you believe she stole this one off of her granddaughter's bed to show us?I love this!

LaTonda stitched her Blurred Lines up with a Gelato Bali Pop. Yum, yum, yum!

How about some embroidery machine Love? Cute.

Peggy chose to make a modern strip quilt with colorful blocks. Love this!

Lynn never disappoints and this show and tell was no different. Look at this amazing Dresden plate quilt, pattern by Edyta Sitar, called Lollipop. 

Another Edyta quilt. This one is Spring Sprouts and uses laser cut appliques which makes quick work of this quilt!

I guess Lynn can Can Can, too!

Scooby Doo, where are you? He's right here in Jennifer's quilt! Andrew, Jennifer's son chose all of the fabrics for his quilt. I guess he bribed his mom with a Scooby snack? ;) 

Georgianne shared this show stopper of pops of color on a stark black background! 

Cheryl made this cheerful under the sea quilt from a panel! Don't you love things that make sewing a snap?

Karen, can you make things any more adorable? This is Stars Aligned, in miniature! It's the whole kit and caboodle, bed included. Uh, you do know that I have a doll house in my living room wall, don't you, Karen?
Karen is going to be teaching our Beginning Sewing class soon! I am so excited. :)  

You really need to click on this picture and zoom in to see the detail of Gerri's quilt! Each member of her quilting group gave her a piece of purple fabric which became their sofa! She also made each friend a pillow with their likeness quilted on it. These are truly treasures! 

I didn't get a good shot of the front of Janet's quilt but the back is just as nice! This one is for her brother. Lucky guy!

Have you tried the military laser cuts? They make such a handsome quilt! This one is for Janet's nephew who is in officer training in t he Air Force. 

Lovely Linda wowed us again with her adorable January and February mini quilts!

Lisa Marie included the tiniest bit of purple in her At Sea quilt! If you know Lisa Marie, you know purple is not far away. :) 

Another Beginning Quilting alum shows off her quilt with pride!

how adorable is this heart shaped Twister quilt? Perfect for Valentine's Day. :)

Liz did Quilts and Fixins Block of the Month quilt proud with the help of her granddaughter. Another generation of quilters is being born!

Thomas put his own spin on Tula Pink's Anchors Away pattern for his dad, a retired Navy veteran. 

Blurred Lines is clearly popular with our Scarlet Strippers! Thomas made his king-sized!

Thomas' mom, Deanna made her Blurred Lines with aplomb. Love this pattern!

Melissa made this darling Valentine runner from a Jenny Doan pattern!

Let's all welcome Angela, our newest Scarlet Stripper! How cute is this grandma pin cushion? Darling!

The ever-stylish Kay models her altered t-shirt using the pattern in the Adorn It! Chamberry pattern book. 

So stinkin' cute! 

Tayler ventured out and made her own Mondo Bag using charm squares! Makes for a cute, quick and easy bag. It's totes magotes! ;) 

Sherrie Stars Aligned made with shades of chocolate accents makes t he stars pop! You'll see this hanging in the shop soon. :) 

Jill went a little zen making her meditation quilt with dark chocolate accents. Ohm.............

Cookie stitched away during the night to make this pillow cover with sweet little Christmas buttons dotted across it. 

Cookie and Jenny Doan 's patterns appear again with this cutie-pie baby quilt!

Another Jenny Doan pattern, Blast Off! from the Fall 2013 issue, is transformed into a sweet Valentine-themed quilt using Pam Kitty Love! 

Mondo Mary strikes again with a purple-icious version and

a  Scrumptious Midi Bag! Totes adorbs. 

Mary has also hopped on the low volume train with this Jenny Doan 4 patch and Snowballs quilt using Cultivate from Cloth Works. Lovely!

So, what's up next? How about a little Bob and Weave?
