Sew'n Wild Oak Class is in Session

Hello Everyone,
Due to my crazy schedule this month, I had to re-arrange my class, and we met a week earlier than normal.  As always, the girls didn't disappoint, and we had a room full of quilted beauty.  Judy is adding to her Country Corners quilt block by block.

She's decided to add sashing which we collectively picked out on Tuesday. 

Barbara B. is going to make a Christmas quilt with her Country Corners blocks.

Barbara G. is making three blocks a month for her Country Corners quilt.

Isabelle is beginning Holiday Treat Table Runner by Laura Nownes.  You can find the pattern HERE at Laura's website.  Several of us will be making this in class next month.

Stephanie sent me a picture of her completed pillow!  Good job.  This is her first quilting project!  I think she's bitten by the quilting bug and we'll be seeing more projects from her.

Theresa brought in her completed pillow top from class last week.  We'll be seeing more from Theresa also.  She purchased additional fabric to make more pillows.  The Nostalgic Pillows are addictive.  I made so many blocks I finally turned them into a quilt!

Melody stopped by with her Harvest of Hope quilt almost finished!

Such wonderful details throughout the whole quilt.

Isn't he adorable!!

Would you believe this is her first applique project?

It is computer work all day for me.  Maybe, just maybe, I'll get a chance to be creative tomorrow if I get everything done on the computer today.  That's my incentive.....a whole day of non-stop sewing and creating beautiful things.  Think Autumn related things......maybe tomorrow.

There's a definite feeling of Autumn here in the mountains.  When Mazey and I took our walk yesterday, the falling leaves gave her plenty of things to chase.  She also loves pine cones.  I'm sure she thinks they are the best toys in the world.....spiky little balls falling from the sky.  It doesn't take much to amuse her.   As you go about your day, I hope you are amused by the simple things Mother Nature gives us in full abundance.  Life is good.



  1. Once again I am filled with inspiration by all the wonderful work here, Lynn! There is definitely a seasonal theme going here and I feel like putting some spiced cider on the stove - except for it's in the 80's here! Yikes. I had to get my shorts back out. I'm with Mazey, though, I am in continual awe of the beauty that surrounds us this time of year.

  2. Just done a little blog catchup now we are home and the inspiration from you and your students is amazing. Think I love "everything" and want to get back into stitching once we are over our jet lag. Thanks and take care.

  3. I am never disappointed with your show and tell days. You and your ladies are so creative and inspiring!

  4. It's always so much fun to see what everyone is up to and the different colour combinations.

  5. Love visiting your blog and seeing all you do. Is there a way to follow you besides e-mail?
