Vintage Tin

Today one of my customers shared a quilt with me that she had just finished for her husband.  It is wonderful!  Hand embroidered.  Beautiful stitches!  Thank you so much for sharing it with me!

The quilt is from Crabapple Hill Studios called Vintage Tin.  Here is the link:

I hope that you all have enjoyed it as much as I did.

Happy Sewing,

I just returned home from my yearly sewing retreat with friends.  We had a great time!  It was wonderful to catch up on our lives and do something that we really enjoy doing.   There was plenty of good food throughout the weekend too.  A little bit too much!  I am not weighing my self until I have been home for at least a week, I think!  :-)

Here is a little peek at what we were up too:
 Mary brought this beautiful quilt to finish the binding.  
 Patti made this lovely leaf table runner.
 I got a very springy table runner pieced together.

Two more beautiful quilts made by Mary waiting for binding.

Kathy was working on her postage stamp quilt.  I did not get a picture of the blocks that she is sewing, but here is a picture of her Grandmother's quilt that was made from 1" squares, that inspired her quilt.  It will be wonderful when it is done!

Melissa was working on a secret project!  Shhh!

I also worked on a project that I can't share right now.  It is for a challenge.

If you every get a chance to go away for a little bit with friends and share your love of sewing, Do it!

Happy Sewing,

Quilt Show Quilts

I went to the quilt show in Somerset, NJ last weekend.  They had so many beautiful quilts there.  I thought I would share with you a number of my favorites.

This was just a small sampling of the quilts.  I really enjoyed seeing so many wonderful quilts!

Happy Sewing,
