Show and Tell, Quilts of Valor and Miss Gracie!

Our customers have been very busy this week:   getting projects finished; starting new ones and bringing in their stuff for "Show and Tell".  Lynn, Pat, Susan, Kathryn, Vicki W., Vickie C., and Kay stopped by yesterday with their goodies:  

Lynn M. has been busy making quilts to sell at her craft booth in Texas.  These are two of her quilts she brought in for "Show and Tell".

"Secret Sisters" is in full swing!  Pat's 'sister' left something for her at the shop, which she picked up yesterday:  a red solids charm pack and card.  

While she was here, Pat brought in the quilt she made for her son, Carl.  She used "Wish You Were Here" jelly rolls (by Holly Taylor) and Kansas Troubles fabric for the borders and backing for his queen size quilt.  

Judi M. quilted it using different leaf patterns (hopefully my camera captured the quilting).  

We know Pat's son will love his quilt.  Great job, Pat!

Vickie C. brought in this adorable quilt she made for her two year old grand daughter.  The fabric is actually 'cheater's cloth" so Vickie quilted it to look like it's pieced.  

We love it, it's adorable.  How cute is this?

Susan brought in this "Tumbling Blocks" quilt she made entirely out of polyester a friend gave her. 

We love the colors and can't wait to see what else Susan brings in for Show and Tell! 

Three "Quilts of Valor" tops were returned yesterday. Kay and Vicki W. brought in their tops to be quilted and Vickie C. brought in the top she quilted for Roxann!  

Everyone's inner borders are the cream colorway of the fabric we used, "Old Glory Gatherings" by Primitive Gatherings for Moda.  The outer borders are either dark navy or the dark red colorway of the same print.  

We decided to alternate the outer borders so the quilts wouldn't all be the same.  We love seeing how everyone put their 'rails' together for the "Rail Fence" tops.  

"Thank You" to everyone who participated in last week's Quilts of Valor all day sew-in.

Sometimes, when you come to the shop, you think you're here to look at all the new stuff or to purchase much needed items or just to get inspired...

Sometimes, when you come to the shop, you're accosted by the blond chick with the camera who wants to take a picture of something you've made or have been given or......

Kathryn was yesterday's victim of the "holy cow, I love that, can I take a picture of it and post it to the blog?" question!  

I don't know if my camera picked up the true colors of the purple in this purse but, it is truly stunning.   

Kathryn said she's had this fabric for years and decided it was time for a new, she made this one without a pattern.  Wow!  Love it!  

Pat (and her embroidery machine) have been very busy lately.  She's been making flannel burp pads then embroidering a cute motif onto them.     

Pat is donating these to her church's booth at next year's Chili Cook Off to raise money for their "New Mothers" program.  

I told her they were too cute to use for their intended purpose!

I've lived in Barry County all my life.  I attended school at Cassville from Kindergarten until I graduated.... a really long time ago.  

Our school mascot is the Wildcats.  I am a Wildcat. If you graduated from Cassville, you're a Wildcat too! 

Everyone needs a mascot.  

The shop's mascot is Miss Gracie.  She stopped by yesterday with her human, Vicki W., for a visit!  

After a quick drink of water and a visit with Sweetness, she was ready to go!  

Thank You, Miss Gracie for stopping by (and bringing your human).  Come back when you can!

"Let me out of here"....she's ready to go!
