Design Wall Monday- September 23, 2013

 Tammy  and I decided to make two baby quilts, with similar fabrics and race, LOL
Tammy's will have a different Kicker border and more PINK.
Guess who WON??
This is the Quilts for Kids design.  
Easy with a 4-Patch and a Focus Square. 
The fabric has Owls and Butterflies on it--you have to look close.

Quilts have flown out the door before Mary C could get pictures.  
Thankfully Tammy took a few pictures that now can be BLOGGED.
 Julie H from Mesa picked up a few quilts last week.
Before Quilting
After Quilting and Close up quilting
The quilting brings the Quilt to LIFE!
This is one Mesa Julie calls her $20 Walmart Quilt.
And this Scrappy Blue Quilt used a bunch of her Blue stash of fabrics.
 The go to Quilt Pattern is the Feather Ramble.

 While she was here, she gave me a Cherished Teddies frame.
I got a little emotional.  Love those Teddy Bears!

Design Wall Monday- September 16, 2013

It's been a while since Thread and Bolts Design Wall has changed.  
The Farmer's Wife has come down it's together as much as possible until the extra blocks get sewn. 
The Bear Need Homes too blocks are coming together so they can go on the BIG Wall Soon.  
(You may have seen a sneak peek of them on The Happy Birthday post HERE)
 This is a version of THIS QUILT made with a multi-BLUE scrap basket. 
Pattern thanks to Evelyn Sloppy's Log Cabin Fever Book.
And on the other WALL is a fun Buggy Barn Hearts Quilt.
Don't you just love the mix of these 27 Fat Quarters in Red, Gold and Black? 
Thinking of a Piano Key Border to finish the borders.

Birthday Goodies

At Quilt Guild there was a Birthday Bag for Me from my Secret Pal.  All of this stuff was in the bag.
4 half yards of 30's fabric and a "Playtime" Charm Pack, two TY Bears 
(one named Orion and one named Bearkhart) 
and Hershey's Chocolate!  

Tammy has been coming out a lot and helping with the stack of Quilts for customers.

This one is the latest one to come off the Longarm.
 And a Close-up of the Log Cabin Squares.

September 11, 2013

Today is Lynn's Birthday!!!
She is happy to claim the day as a Day 
something "GOOD" happened!

It's been way too long since Mary C has been here and much too long since she has posted on the BLOG!
I thought it would be fun to SURPRISE HER!  
On Tuesday, Mary C brought out Birthday gifts!
The newest Pattern book by Jennifer Chiaverini and a matching tote bag for the Loyal Union Sampler.
Also a Pink spool pin doily.
 Lynn likes her new Cherished Teddies bear...close-up shown below.
 Here is the fabrics we had fun playing with for possible colors of her Loyal Union Sampler.
Civil War-ish fabrics. Not her normal Blues...
So, what do you think??

Leave your comments here and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
