Sew'n Wild Oaks Class Was In Session

Hello Everyone,
My girls and I were together on Tuesday in the classroom at In Between Stitches.  They are always THE BEST!  Such a pleasant and creative group of women.
Irene created a beautiful basket of fall flowers with a blue bird of happiness for you from my Harvest of Hope pattern. She cut the flowers from a single fat quarter to fill her basket.

Suzanne has four wonderful pumpkins made for her Harvest of Hope quilt. 

Then I have my "Lucy" girls working on Lucy Boston.  Intricate and beautiful.....each and every one.  The blocks and the girls!

Suzanne is also working on the baskets for Once Upon a Vine. This quilt was inspired from the fact that we live in an area quickly becoming known for great wine.

Judy is halfway through her blocks for Grammy Squares.

I love the fussy cut center.

Then I have my "scrappy" girls working on Lil' Orphan Scrappy.

Barbara got her Christmas blocks joined together with the little Y-square sashing. The blocks look as though they are suspended on latticework.   You can view the video to learn how to make the Y-squares and get the formulas HERE at The Quilt

Evelynne is also making tiny Y-squares to put in her sashing her blocks for Winters Warmth

Pat is making beautiful Dresden baskets.  She had a fabulous selection of '30s fabrics to choose from at her table.

Barbara is framing a cross stitch that she made a few years ago.  She used the Patchwork Math book to calculate the size she needed for the parallel geese for the border. 

Sometimes I just stop what I'm doing and look around to admire the walls that the girls have decorated with their handiwork.  Customers can't help but stroll into the classroom to have a closer look.  They are incredible quilters.  I love spending time with my girls.

Thank you for all of your comments about the sampler quilt and different border options.  I hope to get them on today and I'll post a picture tomorrow of what I decided to wasn't an easy decision to make.

My blogging schedule is going to be very erratic over the next few weeks.  I have a lot on my plate between participating and having a booth in two quilt shows, company arriving from North Carolina, a birthday party for my grandson, (my DIL invited 40 people to this and it' a swimming party at my house....she has now been written out of the will!) There's Quilting in the Garden at Alden Lane nursery, and I'm teaching a full Patchwork Math workshop on Sept. 29th at the nursery......and that's all in the next three weeks! So if you don't hear from me, I'll be curled up in a fetal position in my quilting room.



  1. I am sure you will pull everything off with style. Then sleep for a day or two at the end of the month. LOL. Enjoy

  2. I do hope the DIL in question is in charge of all arrangements for the swim party and has hired a cleaning crew after its all over! Getting older, I know I don't move as fast or well as I used to!

  3. Don't see what your problem is Lynn about the blogging. It's not as though you're going to be busy. (I'm now ducking to avoid the flying plates etc that you're hurling in my direction.)

  4. You have too much going on, but isn't the inspiration derived from what you do so rewarding to see! I will be happy come sing Soft Kitty to you and hold your head while you're curled up in the fetal position, and if you need help hurling plates at Sue I'll be right there beside ya'!

  5. Hah - I get tired just reading what you have coming up! You might have to think about getting meals on wheels, or maybe cookies on wheels (energy, you know)! Having met your gals in person, I know how incredibly nice they all are, not to mention talented, but I am blown away more than every today - I can't imagine what we'll see after next class!!
