Sew'n Wild Oaks Class is in Session

Hello Everyone,

The girls outdid themselves again.  They have been working so hard and finishing so many projects.  I'm very proud of them!

I love this addition of the sun or harvest moon on Judy's barn for her Harvest of Hope quilt.  I see a silhouette of a black weather vane in her future.

The added little "touches" make the blocks so special.  Evelynne has bales of hay stacked in her barn and I love the realistic pumpkins.

Gail's 3D Noughts and Crosses is totally in the finished column!  She finished the binding this week and the quilt is ready for display in the shop and class this Saturday at In Between Stitches.  We still have a couple of openings if anyone is interested in making this quilt designed by Quilt Sue.  Click HERE for the class information.

Karen's Country Charmer is a beautiful flimsy and this is the first time I've seen it in person!  Karen has been emailing me pictures while she worked on her quilt.  Karen drove a considerable distance to come to class yesterday, and I was so happy to see her again and see her quilt.

I love the fussy cutting!

Cindy is finishing up her last block for Toyland Tree.  The giraffe fabric couldn't be better!

Vivian's little Jack is almost finished.  Vivian is fairly new to applique and she's doing a wonderful job!

Cindy is going to give all of her little characters some eyes, and all of her blocks are completed for Toyland Tree.  I know how hard she's been working on them and her persistence is paying off.

Donna is working on a quilt with an Asian design.  She is making fans to applique to the border.  I'm looking forward to the end result on her design.  The colors are amazing.

Karen is starting to sew her Scrappy Leaves quilt together.  She put it out on the design wall so see exactly what colors she had and determined what she needed to make.  I love this quilt and I might just make another one someday.

I then have my "basket ladies", Jan and Kaye.  They are diligently making 120 little baskets for their quilts.  Love the colors that they've selected.

Sometimes, when I have time during the session, I step back and look at "my girls".  They are busy working away, chatting, and offering praise and support to each other.  They are such good, creative quilters and such good women.  I adore and appreciate all of you!



  1. This is such a productive group and it would be so fun to sit in on a sewing session with them.

  2. I always love the projects your gals work on! The Country Charmer makes my heart sing with those gorgeous fabrics, and Gail's Noughts and Crosses is stunning. All those baskets, toys, and pumpkins are just so striking!

  3. Dear Oakie Girls! It is such fun to see the progress you all make from post to post. Aren't we the lucky ones to have Lynn in our lives cheering us all on, whether close or divided by miles, a continent or an ocean? If only...I would love to be amongst all the talent that meets in that bright happy classroom every couple of weeks.

  4. Lynn your Wild Women are just so productive. Like Nancy, I'd love to be in the room to hear the laughter and chatter as well as absorbing all their talent.

  5. Wish I could be there as well. Country Charmer is my fave fave pattern and that version of it is stunning! Alot of talented ladies in that room!
