It's July and That Means It's Time For....Christmas!!


You know that July and Christmas go hand in hand, don't you? Well, in the crafting and quilting world they do! There's no way to get these things done in a jiffy, that's for sure. No sirree! 
Now, I am not sure if any of these things are slated for gift giving but, if they are, there will be some happy people come Christmas morning. I don't want to give anything away here. 


Angie's string pinwheel quilt is a Bonnie Hunter pattern made with her Pony Express fabric. It's like a cup of hot cocoa- warm and comforting!



Thomas made Sheri Meyer's Sewing Machine Mate in some super fun sewing themed fabrics. His sewing machine is going to be pleased. 


Brinda finished her Spangled quilt with all of its Easter-eggy colors! Love the vintage feel of this quilt.


Speaking of vintage....Lorna shared her Dresden Plate quilt, complete with adorable appliqued borders and amazing hand quilting! Vintage at its best, don't you think?


Lorna's daughter, Kendra, has been a busy girl appliqueing sweet butterflies for a future quilt. Love the color combinations and the shape of the butterflies. 


Barbara put this Buggy Barn stack 'n' whack pattern into action with some luscious batiks! 


Marcia's Shortline quilt goes POP with that bright white background! Great job!


Brenda whipped up this beautiful pillow cover in turquoise and gold, perfectly suited for summer. 


 And how about this cute blast from the past panel from Sandy Gervais' Frolic line? 


Deanna has been doing a little service making breast comfort pillows for breast cancer patients using a pattern from Connecting Threads. These are such a need for those recovering from breast cancer surgery. Thank you, Deanna, for thinking of those in need. 


Can you believe that this is Sandy' first quilt? Yes, her very first! She's not shy, is she? :) I really like the beautiful, soft blues and browns. 


Cindy shows off her gorgeous Sidelights quilt, Asian style! So pretty. 


Janet had a little Daydream encounter made with Malka Dubrawsky's Simple Marks line. It's so bright and cheery!


Suzette gave us the look she had when she found out that her quilt, Red, She Said, had won second place in the Kaffe Fassett competition sponsored by Intown Quilts! It's positively malicious, as Suzette would say. Way to go, Super Twin!


Three cheers for Deanna, who made these adorable flags on her embroidery machine! Is there anything those things can't do? Well, maybe cooking dinner.....


She also whipped up this perfectly patriotic table runner for the July 4th holiday. Three cheers for the red, white and blue!


Jody's Scarlet Delight made in rich colors was a show stopper! We all oohed and aahed over it!


If you are a graduating senior in Gerri's family, you are going to get an amazing appliqued quilt from her to celebrate your accomplishment. 

                                                    

This Pinwheel Flurry is destined fro a graduate next May. The pinwheels remind me of Black-eyed Susans. So cute!


What's a little waiting when you are going to receive this as your wedding gift? It might be a bit after the wedding but, hey, they are still together so it's all good!


This piece of gorgeousness made by Lynn is from hand-dyed wool flannel, we think. The color is so saturated that we had a hard  time determining the fiber! Whatever. It's stunning.


How about a tromp through the Misty Pines? Love how this quilt evokes the beauty and serenity of winter.


Lisa sows her college pride with this Georgia Tech table topper. Say that five times fast! Cute, cute!


Jennifer just got back from a trip to Missouri to visit our friend, Jenny Doan, at The Missouri Star Quilt Company! She ventured there with her friend, Gail, and they had a ball sewing up string quilts and Periwinkle blocks! 


Julia made this military themed quilt for her son who was trying to decide which branch to enter. Wherever he goes, he'll be able to proudly show off his mom's handiwork!


Have you taken our Beginning Quilting class? If you have, you will recognize this pattern. Beginning Quilting has been one of the most popular classes at AST and has produced some incredible quilters, like Julia!


There is nothing like a patchwork quilt and Linda has made a beautiful one using three charm packs of Grant Park by Minick and Simpson. So classic, so pretty.


Linda shows her American pride with a star spangled wall hanging!


If it's a Lisa Marie quilt, it's going to have Lisa Marie's favorite color-purple- in it! Shortline did not get short handed in the purple area. :) 


Sandra shared some of her sweet baby quilts. These are for future grandchildren! They will be some very blissful babes!


Cute baby panels make easy work of little quilts. This one is darling!


Lia chose one of our three yard bundles and a Fabric Cafe 3 yard pattern and made this charmer! 


She also has the patience of Job. Clearly, she needed to to complete this incredible miniature paper pieced quilt! She is giving Karen, the Miniature Quilt Queen, a run for her money!

Aren't they all wonderful? makes me want to get in the sewing room and get busy!

Come by and join us for our Holly Days activities and you will be able to catch a glimpse of this Timber quilt made with Moda's Winterlude fabric by Three Sisters.


Such a fun pattern and festive colors. 

That's another strip club down- our 73rd in a row! Yes, 73 Strip Club Saturdays full of fabulous show and tells, expert guidance through the next quilt and lots of friendships and fun!
You should come join us............
