Sew'n Wild Oaks Class Was In Session

Hello Everyone,
Just like the "gathering of the clans", we had a gathering of my Sew'n Wild Oaks girls last Tuesday in the classroom at In Between Stitches.  The girls weren't dressed in their finest tartans, but I did see some plaid fabrics around the room. 
So many wonderful projects are going to be completed this year.  Judy is all finished with her Grammy Square blocks so she will be stitching them together soon.

Isabelle completed a pumpkin for her Harvest of Hope.  (See the plaid!)

Evelynne is continuing construction of her Heritage blocks.

These look so pretty together.  Evelynne is always telling us that she isn't a "piecer".  I don't think she can convince us of that anymore.

Suzanne is working on her Kim Diehl Simple Whatnots project.  Love the colors.  The little red dots are her pin heads. 

Suzanne is also very organized when it comes to making yo-yo's.  Fabrics cut, check.....  Thread ready......check.

Wendy has all of her blocks made for her Lil' Orphan Scrappy!  She will start sewing them together soon. She has been working so hard on her blocks.  You've come a long way Wendy since the first day you walked into class with Doris.  You've got this in the bag kiddo!

I know she has been enjoying picking out all of her own fabrics for each and every block.

Paula is my Lucy Boston girl.  She is moving right along with her blocks between the blocks.  Such precision!

Susan is so enjoying working on A Walk in the Park.  She loves all of the colors and picking out her fabrics.

It was time for a fanfare when Mary took her last stitch in the binding for this beauty that she began 17 years ago.  This quilt is entirely appliqued, and quilted by hand......truly heirloom quality.  Well done!


The "gathering" takes place the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month.  It is our therapy time to be together, work together, eat together, sing together, embrace each other, and our infatuation with quilting.   I LOVE my girls.



  1. Hmmm...I think I like swooning over all the gorgeous blocks more than the tartans worn by our favorite clan members (wink)!

  2. Lots of beautiful work , sounds like fun times together.

  3. Hello Lynn,

    It was great to see what the ladies are working on. Congratulations Mary, absolutely a family heirloom. So inspirational.

    Happy days.

  4. Love them all, but particularly Mary's. It always does my heart good when a quilter finishes up a long term project and this one is spectacular. It just re-enforces what quilting is all about - it's not a race.

  5. I love your girls too! Such beautiful work!!!
