I met with my Sew'n Wild Oaks girls last Monday and Tuesday. Their accomplishments over the past month were quite amazing.
Pat not only made the quilt, but she machine quilted it too! She has created an heirloom for her family to enjoy for many years to come.
Next up are two Row-Mancing Alaska quilts. Last year at this time, we had just returned from the quilt cruise to Alaska where I first taught this quilt. Laurie and Karen did a great job!
The goal of this design was to create a quilt with all blocks pertaining to Alaska from the heavens to the earth. From top to bottom the blocks are called; Aurora, Midnight Sun, Flying Geese, Eagles Nest, Black Spruce, Glacier Bay, Bear Paws, Gold Rush.
My sister Gail is pattern testing Country Romance blocks. She has all of the components completed and ready to stitch together.
Susan got her purple borders sewn on Walk in the Park. Now she's ready for the applique in the border.
Barbara went on a retreat and worked on this beautiful creation. I love the colors and the polka dot fabrics she used. She needed 32 different polka dot fabrics. With help from our friend Lynette, she was able to pull this off.
Barbara G. is making a lot of little red, white and blue 6" blocks.
Lori worked on her little 9-patches for Cute As A Button and is wearing them proudly.
Valery finished her placements.
This is just a few of the things the girls have been working on. There was a lot of chatter, laughter and sharing throughout the two days. I love being able to spend time with my girls.
P.S. The Row-Mancing Alaska pattern is located HERE in my Etsy shop. I'm offering free shipping on orders over $35.00.
