Design Wall Monday/Trends March 16, 2015

Our Trip to Trends was Great!
It's been a Long time since we went- over 2 years for Lynn.
Some of the the Scencks people and vendors said they missed us.
Many more Pictures are HERE on Mary's Blog
Here we are in Hood River at ETC (Every Thread Counts) Quilt Shop
L-R: Mary J, Mary Ellen, Mary C & Lynn
Yes, we had a lot of fun getting confused about who Lynn was talking to.
Never too many "Mary's", Right???
We were there to Help keep Lynn from over- doing it.
She still got very tired by the end of each day.

We made a few shop stops along the way to Margie's in Vancouver.
Mary Ellen made the arrangements for our stay at her College friends home.
We got a Big kick out of learning & playing "Farkle" for 2 of the 3 nights.

3 Quilts were sent by Thread and Bolts for the Quilt Contest this year.
The Theme- 
"Festival of Color"
Lynn's quilt made by Tammi (her daughter), Mary Ellen and Mary C

At our last Quilt Guild mtg, a bag of scraps came home with Lynn to Scrap it Forward.
This is a couple of the blocks on the wall.

Pattern is Fat Quarter and Jelly Roll friendly.
Lynn added some of her fabric and cut her own jelly roll strips. 

A Charity baby quilt is Under the Needle.
This one just needed the borders.  Easy finish while she was having the BIG sale.

This Eagle quilt made by Mary Ellen is one of them.
She made it for her Husband.

Happenings at Thread and Bolts

Grandma and Grandpa Wilson found a cute Purple Sewing machine for Syri's Christmas.
Here is Syri with her grandma, Lynn learning how to stitch a 1/4" seam.

Syri has been at her grandma's knee since she was born.
She is born to be a Quilter!

She knows how to press and how to hold her first quilt parts up just right.
                                        Grandma made her some Nightgowns after Christmas too.
Here's Syri's silly Mom and Grandma on New Year's Eve.
It was a Crazy PJ day.

The 1st Customer quilt has come off the Longarm for 2015.  
This is June's King Size D9P with Dragonflies quilted on it.
