Tuesday Odds & Ends

Well I have to say, it's been a while since I've had time to post... you can attribute that to shuffling two boys back and forth from baseball games lately.  When I'm not at home, at at the ball park!  Now, where do I begin.....

Let's go back to Paducah, Kentucky.  Mom was there in April.  Here are a couple pictures of the Little Quilts booth.
In the middle of the picture above, you'll see the Little Hearts quilt by Little Quilts.  We have kits for sale for $27.95 which includes the 31 page Little memories Booklet.  This is a great booklet full of summer projects... you can hand applique all these little hearts while you're traveling through the summer!  As long as I can remember, Mom was ALWAYS sewing SOMETHING on our 12 hour car rides to Chicago!  Yes, my brother and I in the backseat, Dad driving (with Coffee of course) and Mom always sewing something!
Another shot of the Little Quilts booth...

Here is our favorite prize winner from Paducah... it was done in wool.  The embellishments and stitchery were so beautiful!

Right now we have our Patriotic Little Quilts Book on sale for $18.95
Inspired by the outpouring of support for the September 11 quilt project, Little Quilts designed a new collection of patriotic projects that celebrate the American spirit.  Choose from 15 Little Quilts projects with flags stars, and other patriotic themes.  Tour a photo gallery featuring quilts from the September 11 "Little Quilts Project."  You'll find Little Quilts' helpful hints and favorite shortcuts sprinkled throughout the book
On sale through August 31, 2010

And now it's time for SHOW-N-TELL
Nancy Cumming brought in this quilt for show and tell. She used our Saturday Sampler block of the month using the six inch version and Karen Mowery's little house pattern together to create this awesome quilt. She even quilted it herself on her long arm quilting machine. What a tremendous job Nancy! We all enjoy show and tell so much so please everyone bring in those finished quilts.
Paula Wexler just finished this session of the Primitive Club and is showing a finished quilt known as the Spencer Museum Mystery Quilt, hand appliquéd and hand quilted. This is a real show stopper. Along with the quilt she made a delightful pincushion from a Sue Spargo design called the What Knot. She used some hand dyed velvet, wool and other trinkets. Too pretty to use for just a pincushion. If you look close on the table you will notice a small quilt she completed as well. The ladies in this Primitive Club turn out some great things.
Mary Anne Jernigan showing her quilt "Collector Series" by Jan Patek which was completed in the Primitive Club class under the guidance of Fran House. The new series is just starting and their is still time to jump in. They will be working from the book "Simple Seasons" by Kim Diehl and the first project will be the Winterberries quilt. Visit our web site to see pictures along with the class description.
Madelyn Williams brought in this beautiful variation of the Aboriginal pattern. She used Kaffe Fasset fabrics and the end result is beautiful!  The colors in Kaffe fabrics are so rich and vibrant. Thanks fro sharing with us Madelyn!
Ok, I'm almost done I promise!  Take a look at these beautiful floral fabrics "Coming Up Roses" By Olivia Audi for South Sea Import.

And that's all for now quilting friends!  See you again soon with a new post for a new day!  Happy Quilting!
