Clara's Garden; Fresh Air, Underground Railroad; April's first quilt

Cathy brought in the "Scrap Crazy" quilt she recently made using the 8" Scrap Crazy templates and a "1930's Playtime" layer cake.  

Cathy also used a "1930's Playtime" print for the backing of her quilt and decided to tie it when she was finished! 

Great job, Cathy.  We love the 1930's prints.

Vickie brought in her versions of Bonnie Hunter's "Grand Illusion" mystery quilt.  We love all the colors. 

After completing the first one, Vickie decided to make a smaller version using different prints.  Yummy!

Karla made this quilt using mystery blocks from a shop hop she participated in a couple of years ago.  

How cute is this.  We love the blocks and the color arrangement.  

Karla said she's keeping this one for herself!  We don't blame her!

Fellow shop hop owner, April, dropped by yesterday to find more fat quarters for her VERY FIRST QUILT! 
This is a major accomplishment for April (who says she can't sew on a button!).  

She calls it her shabby-chic quilt because she used flannel, chenille, cotton and other textures.  She's using the "quilt as you go" method.    

April didn't want me to take a picture of her quilt saying it wasn't good enough for the blog.  Oh, please! As you can see, I was able to sweet talk her into letting me document the occasion with a photo!  

April, we're so proud of you.  Keep up the good work and bring back your shabby-chic quilt when it's finished.  

You go, girl! 
April's first quilt!  YIPPEE!!!  

Pat brought in this batik block she made using the pattern from the cover of "Easy Quilts" Fall 2014 magazine. 

She is deciding how big to make her quilt....queen or, stay tuned.  We'll keep you updated.

Yesterday was the first of two "Quick Curve Ruler" classes.  Dorothy, Sharon, Jo and Juanita had sew much fun!  

Juanita wasn't able to finish her block but will bring it in when she gets it done. 

We love the different prints everyone chose and how they pop against the backgrounds.

After posing for pictures, Sharon opened the gift left by her Secret Sister:  a super cute pink purse filled with 80 miniature quilt blocks and an adorable card. 

The big brown truck dropped off more stuff this week.  We're trying to find homes for everything so please, excuse our mess! 

We received another bolt of "Kansas Troubles Favorites" on red; Fiesta stripe toweling; "Underground Railroad" book by Eleanor Burns; bolts of "Fresh Air" by American Jane for Moda; "Fresh Air" precuts: layer cakes, charm packs, jelly rolls and mini-charms; "Clara's Garden" pre-cuts and 6 prints of it's fabric on the bolt.  YIPPEEE!!!

Twenty-one month old Jakob accompanied his grandma, Robin, to the shop last Wednesday.  

While Robin was shopping, Jakob found the totes of scraps.  

He decided his favorite scrap would be worn as a necklace!  

How cute is this little guy?
