Christmas Quilt show

It's really not a hard choice of which Christmas Quilt to enter in the Christmas Quilt Show at SEW CAL GAL's Blog.In the newly re-modeled Thread and Bolts Quilt shop it is hanging waiting for December to come. It is here now and TONIGHT this quilt will FINALLY be put on the King sized Bed and used all of the Christmas Season. This quilt is also called Lynn's Recovery Quilt. It was made in 9 months time after rotator cuff surgery. Mary C- from the Quiltingrandma blog showed me the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Book and I had to order it and start this quilt. I chose Nancy Halvorsen's Christmas Line of fabric and out of necessity had to be creative in using several different backgrounds when I saw that my chosen background was not available anymore, it was a Northcott fabric that I only had about a yard and a half of. Mary made her Pastel SBS along with me. We joined the SBS off-line Yahoo group and checked off all the monthly challenges along with our own challenges. Mary always chose the easy blocks, I would challenge her to make the Paper pieced or harder blocks. We even went to Tri-Cities to take an applique class for a couple of them. E-4 Indiana Rose was the Nightmare block that had to be made at least 4 times... It has been shown at a few quilt shows and on the Thread and Bolts Blog before. It was the Peoples Choice Winner at Fall Trends in 2010 at EE. Schencks in Portland. There are pictures of my excitement at winning HERE.

NEW This Week

New Panels have come into the Thread and Bolts Quilt Shop recently.
A Panel for the Man in your Life. Say the words to the Tune of "My Favorite Things"
from the Sound of Music...

A Panel to remember the good old days of Sewing Machines long ago.
This line is called Mrs Sew and Sew

A Noah's Ark Panel that just needs a few borders to finish it off nicely for the New Baby.

The top two Bolts go with Noah's Ark Panel. Aren't the Lambs Cute in Pink and Lavendar?
"Baby and Me" panel by Leann Anderson. There are a few companion prints that go with it.
The verse around the edge reads as follows:

As I Lay You Down to Sleep,
I Pray My Little One to Guard and Keep.
I Pray That You Won't Grow Up too Fast.
For This Precious Time Will Have to Last.
I Pray for Safety When Away From me,
When Riding Your Bike or Climbing a Tree.
I Pray You'll know I Loved You From the Start.
You Stole My Breath and Jump Started My Heart.
I Can't Wait To Teach you Your ABC's.
I Look Forward to Talking About the Birds and the Bees.
When I First Saw your Precious Little Face,
I Prayed Your Life Would be Touched by Grace.
As Parent with Child, Each Day I Knew,
My Mind Would be Filled With Thoughts of You.
I Pray You'll Know How Much You are Loved,
You Truly Are God's Gift From Above.

Cute animals to go with the Panel above.

A Daisy Kingdom Panel Book that could be a cute Nursery Quilt.
Below are some cute Kid Prints, Trains and Paper Dolls are fun for Boys and Girls.

Trends Weekend--Fall 2011

Happy 50th Birthday to TRENDS...
On display at Trends this past week-end was the Birthday Card we made for the Event. Placed in a visible spot as you enter the Warehouse. Also displayed were two of Lynn's recent quilts, pictured below, the Pink and White one is now our first Pattern! We saw many people taking pictures of it and sold a few patterns. Lots of Networking goes on at Trends.

Saturday night was the Birthday celebration for Trends. We didn't win the Big Prize but...
Lynn was the LUCKY birthday Prize winner at our table. Contents of the box didn't get pictured.

One of the highlights of going to Trends is the reunion Lynn has with her sister. This year her Sister did the 5K for Breast Cancer on Sunday before coming to Trends.
More of the week-end events are detailed at Mary's BLOG.

New Product at THREAD and BOLTS!

This is just a sample of what came home with us from TRENDS. The Warm and Natural Batting has been re-stocked!

Quilting, Quilting

This is the back of a quilt with some pretty feathers quilted on it. This is the "Feather Ramble", I think.

Lots of Customer Quilts have passed through the Thread and Bolts Quilt Shop lately.
This quilting pattern is "Simply Whimsical"

The Cowboy Boot Quilt has the feather pattern that looks like 'tooled leather'.
You can see the pattern closer-up below.

This Mosaic Tiles quilt was a Mystery made by Lynn back a few years ago with A Pocketful of Mysteries Yahoo group. It is a Dorothy Young design. The dark blue fabric has 'snowflakes' on it so that is what got quilted all over. This is the first personal Quilt in a long while that Lynn has had on the Longarm.
The Yale Blue thread shows the "Snowflake" stitching really well on the quilt.
Here is the look at the back of the quilting. The thread just disappears and the snowflakes show.
Because the quilts leave as soon as they come off the Frame, the photos don't always get taken.
Contact Lynn for a great deal on Computerized Quilting.
