Wall of Purses & New Fabric!

We now have Terry Atkinson and Liz Lois's new line of fabric "Neutral Territory" and it is going fast. Such a great blend of browns, creams, teals and reds. Everything we make out of it looks terrific, as we knew it would!!!
We tried some of the fabric out as totes and bags and added them to the great wall of purses, looks cool doesn't it??

Busy Times, Happy Times

We have been so busy with shows, classes and Shop Hop. What a great couple of days we had last weekend. And you can see by the pictures that we had a bunch of great things to see and to buy! We had lots of treats, lots of projects, but most of all, lots of friends and laughter. Thanks to all my friends for coming to the events I have been part of or sponsored during the year. Watch for the wonderful trunk show we have coming up in December! It will be an inspiration for all your holiday projects!

Sew and Go Class

We had our very first Sew and Go class yesterday. Everyone was happy with the little tote bag they made, which was very easy. We started out by sewing our four patch and then adding that to our outer bag fabric. We sandwiched the batting and the lining and quilted the bag pieces. Then we cut them out and sewed them together, adding binding and a handle. Everyone finished a tote in 3 hours and we had snacks too. What a great night!!!

Last "Let's Do Lunch" Class

Here is our final project from the "Let's Do Lunch" class; Ribbon Candy. Of course some of us wanted to make it out of christmas fabrics, a picture of mine is here when I was chain stitching the pieces. Samatha made hers out of brown and blue and used only two fabrics, interesting choices.Cathy chose to make hers using a background I said "NO!" to. It turned out wonderfully well so I should know better than to judge a fabric choice too quickly!!Wendy brought refreshments; homemade grape wine, all wrapped up in a "Let's Do Lunch" wine tote. It was yummy!!Thanks to everyone who took this class, we had a blast!!!

Maxwell Street Mascot Race

Well, the race was on and won by McGruff the Dog, mascot for the anti-drug program from the police department here in Whitewater. But the other mascots ran a great race, especially Willie Warhawk, our personal favorite here at Woodland Quilts. The last lap was finished by doing the "Chicken Dance" so you KNOW it wasn't an easy race to win. We all had a great time at Maxwell St. days and the weather was wonderful!!! running in the pictures we have Verlo Mattress, Willie Whippet, Scoopie from Culvers, McGruff and Willie Warhawk. Congratulations to all the runners and thanks for making Maxwell St. Days so memorable!!!

Busy, Busy!

Sorry I haven't been posting regularly lately! You will have to bear with me as I catch up to speed on the blog!

Busy!! Busy!!! We are so busy making our blocks for the Ode to the '30s class. They are piling up and they are beautiful. These blocks are not even in a quilt yet and they are so very pretty to look at!!!We all agreed that they are NOT the easiest blocks we have ever made but also that they are by far the most beautiful. And what a feeling of satisfaction we get when we finish one!!! Learning a new technique is always a challenge but we feel this quilt will be worth the extra effort.

Piece of Pie!

Our newest class; Piece of Pie, will start on August 13, 2009. This is the cover quilt top, not finished but in the running. This class will be so much fun and we can use up our scraps for this too!!! Best of all will be the scrumptious and yummy desserts we will be eating once a month. When you register for this class you get the Piece of Pie book and a container for your cut up scraps. Then, when you come to the first class you are ready to pick the quilt you want to do from the book !!!!All quilts from this book use 10 inch or 5 inch squares and 2 1/2 inch strips. Thats it!!! What a great way to get together and use up those scraps all at the same time. These quilts go together faster than we can eat up the dessert!! Hope you can join us!!!

Pie Crust Pile-Up

The name of the game was scrappy and the name of the pattern was Pie Crust Pile Up. We had such fun making these. Each of three teams were given kits and told to race to the finish to see how soon we could make a quilt for charity. We finished last, alas, but it looked great as you can see. We were just too careful!!!! Anyway, our new friend, Lori, got the quilt in a draw and took it with her to Washington State, where whe lives, to finish it and present it to her favorite charity. See Terry's blog for the finshed quilt and places where all three quilts ended up. It was a great race, even if all I won was a package of tissues so I could sob my loss!!!!

The Perfect Setup

Here is a peek at the inside of Bridge Creek Cottage in Augusta Wisconsin. We had a wonderful time at the retreat and we had a wonderful place to stay. This is a view of the great table runner made by Terry Atkinson. The table seats a dozen and we filled it up every time!!! There is a view of the work room and my and Deb's bedroom. Lots of great food and fun.

Apron Art Display in Whitewater!

We just recently had a great write-up in the Whitewater Banner about our Apron Art display that is opening July 1st at the Whitewater Cultural Arts Center!

Here is the article from the Whitewater Banner's website:

Apron Art to be on Display at Whitewater's Cultural Arts Center in July Vintage Aprons and Reproductions will be Displayed

Stonemill Quilters will be exhibiting their apron art at the Whitewater Arts Alliance's Cultural Arts Center on 402 West Main Street in July. Aprons, vintage and new, will be on display from July 1 through July 26, 2009. Anyone interested in appreciating the cleverness of turning a domestic need into an art form will enjoy this display. All aprons are hand-sewn with appliqu├ęs and embellishments.

"These aprons are from an era when people actually wore them, and in doing so decided to be creative in their 'wearable art'," said Cheryl Kehm of Woodland Quilts. She adds, "Aprons are just starting to come back and we are excited to share this beautiful exhibit."

The exhibit opens Wednesday July 1 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and includes a brief presentation which will be given the night of the opening. The Cultural Arts Center will be open Wednesday through Sunday from Noon to 5 p.m. during the exhibit, which runs through July 26.

"At the Cultural Arts Center we are delighted to exhibit many types of art, including this 'wearable' art by local quilters," said Roni Telfer, president of the board of directors of the Whitewater Arts Alliance.

Whitewater's local quilt guild, the Stonemill Quilters, will provide aprons for the exhibit from their personal collections. The aprons, made of wonderful fabrics and textiles, will be displayed with anecdotes and historical information. The Cultural Arts Center is located on 402 West Main Street in the historic White building near the Birge Fountain. Parking is behind the building, with an elevator available from the parking lot entrance

Lynn's Godson's Quilt - Quilted

We have shown this quilt before but now it is quilted. Lynn did a wonderful job of quilting on the Handi Quilter 16. She elected to quilt around the stars on her home sewing machine. Her godson has worked long and hard for his degree and so did Lynn on the quilt. Great job Lynn.

Mary's First Long Arm Quilt Project

Mary R. enjoyed her first ever long arm quilting project and it is a beauty!!! She made this from a PMS block exchange (Please Make Some) at her guild and then put the blocks together in log cabin pinwheels. She quilted it here at Woodland Quilts using the Handi Quilter 16.

Lynn's Religious Creation

Lynn's godson is going to be ordained as a deacon. Lynn made him this beautiful quilt as a commerativie of that event. It is a panel, cut apart, and each individual panel is made into the middle of a star. Lunn used lots of purple and green and each star has a significant prayer or religious symbol. What a beautiful keepsake, I am sure he will love it!!! Nice job Lynn!!!
