Sew'n Wild Oaks Class was in Session

Hello Everyone,
Another wonderful day was had by all in the classroom at In Between Stitches.  We cover just about every topic you can imagine from politics to movies from the 1960's, and theme songs.  We love to talk about music so Susan will sing to us!
Cindy brought in her adorable, Jo Morton wall hanging. Precious.

Barbara brought in her completed Once Upon a Vine all quilted and bound! 

Lora Zmak worked her free motion quilting magic by adding grapes and grape leaves.

This beauty will be on display in the shop very soon for all to see.  Great job!

Suzanne is adding grapes and fruit to her cornucopia for Harvest of Hope.  Wonderful fabric selection.

Diana is determined to finish her Toyland Tree quilt.  I love displaying my Toyland during the Holidays.

Judy is making good progress on her hexies for Grammy Squares.

Cindy is working on her cute little hexie flowers for Winter's Warmth/Summer's Blush.  I always say it took me an hour per flower on this one.  There are something like 48 flowers......but who's counting?

Gail is putting beautiful combinations together for her Lil' Orphan Scrappy quilt.

Now we have the parade of blocks for a Walk in the Park by Kim Diehl.

The blocks go together very quickly.

Lynette decided to add a new little spark to some of her centers by adding a quarter square triangle instead of a plain square.  I love to see the girls add their own touch of creativity to the designs.

I saved another finish for the close of my post today.  Jeanne has her whole top completed for Lil' Orphan Scrappy.  She used her scraps from her Country Charmer quilt.  That is the reason Lil Orphan Scrappy got her name.  The largest scrap you need is 5-1/4" x 5-1/4".

Love the border.  Jeanne also found an omission on the pattern.  The HST around the border need to be trimmed to 4-3/4" x 4-3/4".  That measurement has now been added to page 7 of the pattern. Well done Jeanne!  You get extra credit for discovering my blunder.....I mean omission!

When customers pop their heads into the classroom, it is fun to see their expressions of joy and amazement when they see the different projects around the room.  It is magical.

Make some magic today.



  1. As always I enjoy seeing all the projects. Each one prettier than the last. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Lynn, I just love these occasional little show and tell sessions you offer. They are always so inspiring! Thank you!

  3. Your ladies are amazing! Wonderful job each one!!

  4. Oh my gosh Lynn. What a wonderful display of beauty, your girls are busy. Sure miss being there but will see you soon. Jeanne's quilt is beautiful.

  5. Lovely work - so enjoyed seeing what everyone has been doing with your patterns and inspiration <3

  6. So beautiful, thank you for sharing. Lots of inspiration there.

  7. Love seeing what everyone is working on: Gail your LOS is looking great, and I love the Kim Diehl quilts. That one goes on my "to do" list. :-) And I got to see Gail: it was a great visit. We'll have to include you next time. :-) hugs, H

    1. Yes, it was a fun visit over lunch, Helen, and I loved my fabric! I have plans for that in my scrappy quilt! Thank you so much! It was so good to see you and return to my old stomping grounds in Windsor!

  8. Great Works! I like the way Jeanne used her darker scraps to make the border on Lil Orphan Scrappy too!
    Does Susan know the words to "our song"?

  9. I remember when Barbara was just working on individual blocks when I was there - was a fabulous finish - as are all the rest! Every time I see LOS - it makes me smile - I'm about half way done with my Ohio Stars! Great work, everyone!
