Another Summer Row by Row Show and Tell - License Plate version

Sharon shared with us what she's done with Row by Row license plates she's collected this summer. She makes tote bags for gifts for special friends! What a special gift!

Summer Row by Row Show and Tell

Our good friend Lila brought her granddaughter Natalie to the shop during this summer's Row By Row Shop Hop. Natalie shows her version of "Sunbonnet Sue & Overall Bill fishing on the Chattahoochee River". Natalie did use one of our kits for her row. We think she went through her 'stash' or probably Grandma Lila's 'stash'! We love her colorful fish! Always great to see a new generation of quilters coming along! Send us a picture of your 'young person's patchwork and we'll post them, and randomly select a winner for a bundle of fat 1/4ths! Email the pictures to littlequilts@mindspring.com

Patchwork of the Crosses

Today's view from the office..
If this looks familiar, we're still here ... and, I'm still working on my Lucy Boston blocks!!
We usually see at least one manatee while we're here.  They're very friendly and will swim right up to us...which is a little scary until it gets close enough to see exactly what it is!
Sightseeing...

and notable landmarks...
Can anybody guess where we are from the pictures?

Call the shop or check out the website for more information on Patchwork of the Crosses or to order additional supplies.

Patchwork of the Crosses

A fun summery block for this week...

These are the fabrics I used...

All these fabrics are left from the last block; the addition of the pink makes the whole block look different.

Need more paper piecing supplies?  Check out our website.
Don't forget to send pictures of your blocks for the Pinterest Board!

Log Cabin - Improved

Fun times at Wool Works! The second Friday every month stitchers, rug hookers, knitters and weavers gather together to share and encourage. Mary brought this log cabin quilt she worked on for more than 5 years. Her hubby counted more than 3000 pieces! It's not a wool quilt....but we all loved it!...it's stunning!

Mrs. Chillingsworth

Mr. Chillingsworth was so popular last year that he's being reprinted! We even asked Andover fabrics to make a Mrs. Chillingsworth! Well they didn't print a Mrs. Chillingsworth....so...we decided to 'dress' our own. Tricia made the first Mrs. Chillingsworth with the orange purse and hat. Then Wanda
C. made "Ruby" Chillingsworth, her sister with a ruby red ring and 'real' pearls on her neck, plus flip flops and a tutu! We have 'tutu' tulle netting if you want some with your kit! A fun door cover for the Fall!
