Sewn Wild Oaks Class is in Session

Hello Everyone,

I have lots of pictures for you this morning brought to you by the girls who were Sew'n their Wild Oaks in the classroom at In Between Stitches yesterday.

Judy made block #4 for Country Corners. This is a great looking block, especially with the little dot of plaid in the center.

I went over the directions to make the setting blocks for the Country Corners quilt and Judy finished one to add to her beautiful block collection.

I always have my girls test out the block cutting directions before I post them, so they are a month ahead of everyone else.  Susan made a beautiful block for next month.  She didn't find any oopsies in my directions!

Here are Susan's gorgeous blocks.

Isabelle's perfect block #4 all ready to be stitched together.

Doris finished her block #3.  I like the way she changed up the layout.

This is Doris' block #1 so far.  She almost finished it before the end of class.

Paula has her parts and pieces in this wonderful block organizer!  It is perfect to take to class.

Suzanne is making wonderful progress on her 6" blocks.  They are really something to see in person.  I love the way the Courthouse Steps blocks are bringing it all together.  Incredible!

Suzanne also showed us her Heartfire flimsy.   The next time you see this is will be quilted and bound.  Suzanne is a finisher.

Kathy is working on her Harvest of Hope barn.  I love her roof!  Her purple pumpkin just sparkles.

Isabelle is working on her sunflower for her Harvest of Hope quilt.  She has a wonderful selection of yellows that she is going to incorporate.

Patti is working on her witches house for October Magic.  I LOVE her selection of fabrics for the window and door....PERFECT!

Gail has ALL of her 120 baskets made for her For the Love of Baskets!  She is stitching the little spacer bars between the baskets and she has all of her rows labelled......very organized. This one is going to be a beauty and I can't wait to see her progress.

Wendy is using her Patchwork Math book to make borders around this adorable panel.  We worked on the math yesterday, so she knows exactly what she needs to do and how many blocks she needs to make.

Suzanne started stitching her hexie grapes together for Once Upon a Vine.  Her clusters are going to look good enough to eat.

Suzanne also brought in her finished October Magic!  This will be decorating her home for Halloween for many years to come.  The machine quilting by Beth Hummel was amazing on this one too!

What can I say about my girls other than WOW!  What a great way to spend a the quilting classroom with friends.  There was laughter, singing, whistling, clapping, talking, story telling and great companionship.  My girls ROCK!


P.S.  Please check out the Marcus Mentions Blog HERE.  They mentioned ME and showed a picture of Emilie Elizabeth using their fabrics.  That was a big time shout out and I really appreciated it.
