Sew'n Wild Oaks Class Was in Session

Hello Everyone,
Here is a mini quilt show this morning brought to you by "my girls" the finishers.  Nancy brought in her quilted Country Corners quilt.  This quilt is outstanding!

Flashback to last October to the last night of my retreat at Snowflake Lodge.  Nancy just took the last stitch, and pressed the last seam of this beauty.  She was so done and tired at this point in time. The free directions for the Country Corner blocks are located HERE.  Well done!

Another outstanding creation is Mary's block of the month beauty by Pam Buda for Marcus Fabrics.  The next time you see this one, it will be beautifully quilted and bound.  Gorgeous!

Another flash back to October when Mary was only this far along on her quilt.

Patty finished her adorable, cuddly little snowman quilt.  She also worked on this quilt at the retreat.

Pat created an adorable Halloween treasure by Vern Mosquera.  Love the fabric in the broom.

Continuing with our Halloween theme, Patty brought in a small, embroidered wall hanging.

Nancy loves her Strip 'n Sew made by Mr. Joe.  She keeps all of her strips organized while making my Heartfire quilt.

Marti has been doing some grape stomping.  She is almost finished with Once Upon a Vine.

Isabelle's cornucopia is filled with her colorful fruits, grapes and leaves for Harvest of Hope.

Barbara is working on a dramatic Bargello quilt.

 Here is her key to keep her on track.

The pattern is in this book which is available HERE at the shop.

Now we have a parade of Lil' Orphan Scrappy blocks.  This beautiful grouping belongs to Wendy.

This block belongs to Doris.

Mary is making the blocks from my BOM program.

Gail is having a great time selecting her fabrics for her personalized blocks.  Great combinations.

We also have Paula working on her Lucy Boston block.  I learned a whole new way to assemble the pieces together.  Once I refine the technique, I will share it with you.

I'll leave today with this caption on Barbara's shirt.

My girls are the BEST!
