Giving Thanks

 Many of us have been working on the Little Pilgrims embroidery Block of the Month this year which ended in October. . . just in time to finish the quilt for Thanksgiving! This is how Muriel chose to set her blocks.  

 Deborah chose a different setting idea for her blocks and has her wall hanging totally finished, quilting and all! Pattern sets for the Little Pilgrims blocks are still available at the shop.

Great job..even though it's not done in wool!

Award Winner Mystery Quilt

Joan was one of the participants of the Border Creek Mystery Quilt we did last year. She picked her own fabrics for the mystery and ended up with this beauty which she quilted herself. Her quilt won a blue ribbon at the Georgia State Fair and we encouraged her to submit it for the AQS show in Paducah.

Lois has been very prolific finishing things. She made this blue and green Irish Chain.

Lois made this memory quilt using Deb Tucker Star Ruler…what a beauty. She also made this “Renoir” quilt designed by herself and quilted by her sister. Aren’t these great!?

For a quilt shop, we certainly embrace our inner cuddly side.  The teddy bear has graced the covers of Little Quilts patterns and helped deliver pattern instructions in their books.

VERY BIG Log Cabin Quilt

 Gloria is making this king size Log Cabin for a friend. Since she was making a two color Log Cabin, she bought extra fabrics so she wouldn't run out. She had fabric left and is even making a coverlet for her bed from the leftovers. Great job!
