Downton Abbey Show and Tell

Marlys participated in the Downton Abbey mystery quilt from Love Bug Studio and she’s the first one to bring in her finished quilt top. It was a nine week mystery that started in November – that involves a lot of stitching in a short amount of time for a quilt that big! Marlys chose the beautiful Dowager Countess colorway.

Checkered Past

We loved the unique setting on this sampler quilt completed by one of our Second Saturday Sampler participants. Because she used checked fabric in the setting and the blocks are a blast from the past (2004 2nd Sat. blocks), she named the quilt “Checkered Past”. Isn’t that cute?

End of 2013 Second Saturday Sampler..looking forward to 2014 ...starts next month...

This weekend at Second Saturday Sampler was the big unveiling of the finished quilt and all the alternate block quilts. We think you’re going to love them! 
Wanda included both the 10” and 5” blocks in her quilt. She used setting and border fabrics from the “Pheasant Run” fabric line designed by Little Quilts. 
Janice designed the red/tan quilt and used paper piecing to make all the flying geese. 
Jackie made the contemporary quilt using a bright and bold border fabric by Kaffe Fassett.

Muriel designed the black and white quilt. She stitched the label to the backing fabric before sending it off to the quilter so the label is now permanently affixed to the back of the quilt.

Do I hear applause?!

Simple Times...

A blast from the past…Carolyn made “Simple Times” one of Little Quilts early and favorite wall hanging. She was recovering from a broken leg and spent lots of time working on the hand piecing of the blocks as she rested. Her stitching helped her through this hard time. She said it’s amazing what you can get done when you can’t ‘go running around’! This quilt is always a favorite…a great stash buster too.

Let the fabric talk...

Amanda made this chenille throw rug for her daughter by layering 4 layers and a backing of this wonderful aboriginal fabric, drawing a diagonal line ¾” apart, sewing on the lines and then cutting through 3 of the layers. She washed it a few times and tumble dried it with a few towels and tennis balls. A great rug!
