Secret Santa Tree Skirt

I just thought I would share my latest project with everyone, as an inspiration and a reminder that the Christmas season is upon us, so we had better get crackin'!

I just finished the top for this adorable tree skirt using the Secret Santa fabrics from Benartex. It is so cute, I don't want to cut the hole it the center!

Operation Snuggle

Lenore V. from Elkhorn and her husband, a retired Army captain, with one of the many quilts she has made for Operation Snuggle. Operation Snuggle is an organization that gets quilts to veterans in hospitals and also gives quilts to children of deployed soldiers. If you wish to donate a quilt please contact Woodland Quilts. Lenore says it is very satifsfying and exciting to know a quilt you have made is going for such a good cause. We are very pleased to tell you that Lenore has made over 100 quilts for Operation Snuggle and is still going strong. Thank you Lenore!!!!! (and Captain for buying the fabric!!!!)

Trust Me Quilt Class Graduate

Here is one of the recent "graduates" from my "Trust Me Quilt" class, Nancy. We had such fun in that class, and what beautiful results! This quilt was made for her daughter, but I think she should make another beautiful quilt for herself!

New Aprons

Aren't these aprons adorable? They were such a cinch to sew up that I made a bunch of them for the upcoming shop hop. I just love the ric-rac.

The fabric I used for these is Bee's Knees and the pattern is from Vanilla House Designs. If you would like either fabric or pattern, call us or check out our online store!

Hello All!

The Winner's Bouquet Class in Madison was a huge success! I had a great time teaching it, and I hope all of you who took it had a great time as well. I won't bore you too much with all the details in print, instead I will upload a ton of photos of the class which were taken by Bev, my personal photographer. :) Oh, and as a side note, if you would like a chance for your quilt and some of its info to make an appearance on our "brag blog", please email a pic and a short description to me at the shop! - Cheryl
