Time for some more Show & Tell!

Here are some of the great quilts we've seen from some of our customers...

Customer Esther Hogan stopped by to show us these two beautiful quilts.
Chock Full of Charms

Jewel Box

We loved this charming, cheery basket quilt that Susan Crooks brought in to show us. What a fun quilt top to work on!

Sara Brown showed us her beautiful Storm At Sea quilt that she made. She started it in Debbie Prah’s paper piecing class. Debbie is on our teaching staff and is always willing to share her knowledge of foundation piecing for mini as well as traditional size quilt blocks. Sara used her stash of batiks for this stunning queen size quilt. For perfect points every time….try one of Debbie’s classes

Jill Olander brought in this darling quilt. Jill has not quilted in 14 years, but happened to be in the shop last week-end when Trish Wys brought her quilt in to show. Jill loved the quilt, bought the Snow Ball Quilts book, picked out fabrics, sewed the quilt up in a week and was back on Saturday to buy border fabric and backing! She plans to hand quilt the quilt for a lucky new grand-daughter. She's so excited to be back quilting that she bought more fabrics to make another quilt! If you haven't been in the shop to see the trunk show from the book "Snow Ball Quilts", stop by soon -- the quilts will be here for a few more days. With just a few simple blocks, you can make a fantastic quilt in no time!

Diane Nickels shared this cute idea with us. She made a Christmas tree quilt to display her large collection of Christmas pins. What a great way to enjoy all those beautiful pins!
