Sew'n Wild Oaks Class is in Session

Hello Everyone,
I had a full classroom at In Between Stitches yesterday for my Sew'n Wild Oaks class.  The tables were full, the sewing machines were stitching away, the ladies were appliqueing, it looked like Santa's workshop and my little elves were busy.
Kay has been very productive during the month and finished her fabulous version of Party in the Garden. She quilted it herself with her domestic machine.  Very impressive Kay.  You did a wonderful job on my pattern from selecting the fabrics, to the construction, to the quilting!

Ann finished her Summer's Blush quilt top.  Ann enrolled in the Fall Sewmester PhD program at In Between Stitches.  Click HERE to find out more about the program and how to enroll.  (PhD stands for Piled High and Deep.)  This program is an excellent way to keep you going on all of the UFO's stashed away in your closets.....and there are prizes!

Just look at this precision.  Matching stripes on the flange and fussy cut hexagon flowers!  Great attention to detail pays off in the end and your quilt is beautiful Ann.

Isabelle is finished will all of her Minglewood blocks and she started putting them together with the sashing and nine patches.  The design wall wasn't big enough to hold them all.  She had a STACK  of blocks that are going to turn into a gorgeous quilt.  Her persistence has paid off. 

Kathy finished her corner blocks for Party in the Garden.  These baskets are 6-1/2" square.  I can just picture a whole quilt of these little baskets in groups of four.  When I suggested that to the class, there was a huge, collective groan!

So you do the math.....each basket is 6-1/2" tiny are the hexagon flowers?  Big big is a quarter?

This beautiful wall of Nostalgic Christmas blocks is brought to you by the combined work of Gail, Kaye, and Barbara.  They looked so good together I almost broke out into a chorus of "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas."  Love them, love their blocks!

Sew a little bit every day.  A few minutes add up to a few hours and then in time, projects come alive and they get finished.  Become a FINISHER, in quilting and in life.

I'm off to the shop again this morning for the final session of Scrappy Leaves. Pictures tomorrow!  I'll try to sneak in a few hours of quilting too.



  1. Love it, Piled High and Deep sounds like my sewing room.Oh, no, I should have kept that a secret,oh well someday it will all come together. Can you tell I am just a tad bit delusional. Hard to keep on tract when you keep showing things that have me spinning in a new directions.

  2. Everything is beautiful, such lovely work.

  3. Such gorgeous projects! Wish I was a little mouse in the sewing room!
