Sew'n Wild Oaks Class Was In Session

Hello Everyone,
I met up with my girls at Sew'n Wild Oaks class on Tuesday.  As always my girls did not disappoint.  Some spectacular finishes arrived in the classroom. 
Pat took the last stitch in the binding on her Scrappy Leaves quilt.  She even machine quilted this one herself on her domestic machine!  That is quite the undertaking.  Her goal was to have this one done and on display by September 1st.  She did it! Pictures don't do this quilt the justice it deserves.  It is a work of art.

Lynnette and Irene are also working on their Scrappy Leave in anticipation of Autumn which is just around the corner.

Irene completed her Journey's End quilt top.  She kept up with her BOM program through In Between Stitches and this is her reward.

Karen is moving right along on her Journey's End.

So is Kristi. Each of them are incorporating fabric from their Kim Diehl stash.

Laurie made her last basket for Huckleberry Hill.  Now she is waiting for me to design the fourth, and last basket.  No pressure!

Gail is moving right along on her Walk in the Park quilt.  She's almost finished putting the borders on her blocks.

Kristi just arrived back from attending Primitives of the Midwest.  I put the ruler next to the blocks so you could see they are going to finish at 4-1/2"!!!  You all thought I did tiny blocks!

The next series of pictures are Mary's Lucy Boston blocks.  Mary has been doing a great job fussy cutting her rectangular hexagons.  This quilt is going to be quite the treasure when she's done.

So there you have it......another glorious day spent in wonderful company surrounded by beauty.

Our relocation to the mountains is starting to wind down.  My sister Gail met up with us in the city house and we loaded up her car with all of the props that I use at quilt shows.  We only had to clear out three bedrooms, but those bedrooms were full to the brim. 

Today we will do some unpacking and rearranging, then we start cutting kits for the retreat and the next four quilt shows.  Yes, four quilt shows, two retreats, two guild lectures, one class at Quilting in the Garden, two classes at In Between Stitches all in the next eight weeks.  I think I need a nap!



  1. So many beautiful quilts! The Lucy Boston blocks are so fun to look at - Mary's are really fantastic - love that fussy cutting!

  2. The girls' projects are spectacular! Be sure to regroup yourself intermittently over the next eight weeks! You have to be your own best friend and give yourself time to recharge! Enjoy!

  3. Stunning finishes and near finishes! Your gals rock! I can only dream to have Lucy Boston blocks that look that good! Glad the move is winding down! Hopefully between the retreats and shows you can spend some time sipping wine on the porch with Mr. Joe and throwing some Mazey ball!

  4. Lynn,have you figured out that you didn't really retire? :-) I hope you have time in between things to catch your breath!! See you in about a month!! Hugs, H
