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!!!

Frog Table Runner

Here is Jesse, looking very happy because she just finished her frog table runner from the "Let's Do Lunch" book by Terry Atkinson.Grandma Carol says she sits down at the machine, reads all the instructions and sews her projects perfectly. Sounds like we all could learn something from Jesse!!! She has lots of other projects cut out and ready too, what a great inspiration!!! Thanks for bringing this in Jesse!!! Good Job!!!

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.
