June & July Club Show & Tell

I thought I would try to get caught up in my Club Show & Tell pics.  The ladies are all so talented, so I don't want to miss anyone.

Momma did another block for our BOM.

Judy is working on a cute baby quilt and she also finished the BOM Club quilt from last year.
(Sorry the picture is sideways. )

Mary Alice made a beautiful baby blanket and is starting a lovely lacey scarf.

Melissa made these 2 cute wall hangings along with an online quilt group.  She also did this adorable Bee Hive
 wall hanging from the pattern Calendar Quilts.
Judy made this lovely bag from My Favorite Bag pattern by Kati  Cupcake.  She made it a little smaller than the pattern.

Karen made these neat blocks of beige and tans for the Heart and Home Quilters Guild from Kutztown.
After a Club meeting, I am always so inspired and am anxious to work on one of my many projects.  I may even finish some! :-)
Thank you so much for sharing ladies!

Happy Sewing,

Janie's Show & Tell

One of my customers makes a number of quilts for craft shows and also sells them online.  She makes many beautiful things and I thought I would share some of them with you.

I really like the fabric that she chooses.  Of course, some are from the shop :-) but there are a lot of Thimbleberries like fabrics and reproductions, which are my favorites.
Thank you Janie for sharing!

Happy Sewing,

Stacey made this wonderful quilt featuring an appliqued moose for the Moose Lodge here in town.  It is beautiful!  The quilt was made from Jo Morton fabrics.

Breakfast Buddies

Once a week I go out with a few of my friends for breakfast.  We call ourselves the Breakfast Buddies.  It is always so nice to get together and catch up on what has been happening since our last visit.  Once in awhile, we even have some show and tell.

 Karen made this lovely jacket when she lived in Texas.  She is currently working on quilt blocks from Indygo Junction called Through the Seasons.

Kim is working on an afghan made from leftover sock yarn.  Isn't it so cool?!  Kim is the owner of the yarn shop in town Yarn's R Us.  You can check out her website.  She is also on facebook if you would like to check her out there.

Cold Spring Village Quilt Show

A couple of weeks ago we went to Cold Spring Village in Cape May, NJ.  It had been years since I had visited this lovely historic village.  Last time I visited I went with my Daughter.  This time I was with my DH, Son, DIL and new Granddaughter.  It was a wonderful visit both times, but this time they had a Quilt Show on display.  What fun!
I'd like to share it with you too!

Of course, there were even more quilts there to enjoy.  I always find quilt shows very inspiring.  I hope the show inspired you too!

Happy Sewing,

My Favorite Bag

I just finished making my tote bag and clutch.  I just love it! 

My Favorite Bag by Kati Cupcake Pattern Company is just that.  It has become my favorite bag!
It has lots of room inside along with 6 pockets on the inside and outside!  It uses a magnetic clasp in the center to close the top.  It is 18" tall by 15" wide and 5" deep.  The clutch is 11 1/2" x 7 1/2".
Both of the items made up very quickly.  All the pieces have fusible fleece added and the bag is put together with minimal stitiching.  It has easy to follow instructions and some very pretty details, such as curved front and back pockets, grommets and a lovely sash.  If you don't want to do the sash and grommets, it would make a beautiful space to feature applique or embroidery.
Besides it being a great project bag, you could also use it for a diaper bag, a quilt show tote bag or your favorite purse.

Happy Sewing,
