Pretty in Pink, Secret Sisters, Show and Tell Saturday!

With yesterday being Valentine's Day, anyone who wore pink to the shop received a free fat quarter!  

Not everyone's 'pink' was easily seen, some folks had to prove where their pink was!  

We decided to give Dorothy's husband a free fat quarter too when he came in with pink tape on his billfold!

Cynthia with her free fat.  The snowman's caps on her shirt are pink 

Shawn (wearing a pink shirt) showing off her free fat quarter 

Janet was head to toe in pink:  shirt, jumper, leggings, socks and her boots!  We should have given her two free fats! 

Virginia "models' her free fat along with her pink sweater 

Dorothy's pink was on the bottom of her shoes!

Jacey's free fat quarter selection for having pink in her leggings! 
Nola 'models' the free fat quarter she selected and we won't mention which article of her clothing was pink!  

This round of "Secret Sisters" ended yesterday at the Secret Sister Banquet.  Not everyone could attend last night so, some 'sisters' came yesterday during business hours.  

Pat received this adorable table runner, made by her 'sister', Lynn who made (and quilted) Pat's runner.

Newlywed Vickie C. wanted to spend Valentine's Day with her husband so, she 'revealed' herself to Sharon with February's gift: paper piecing projects and two blocks for another project.

Unable to attend last night's festivities, Nola 'revealed' herself to 'sister' Vickie (while Vickie was revealing herself to Sharon) with a Mod Block Magazine and two pillowcases she made:  one for Vickie and one for Vickie's her new husband!  

Nola said the pillowcase with pink accent strip is Vickie's, Scott's has the brown strip.

Vickie picked out a big spool of Aurifil thread as her February birthday present from her Secret Sister (Nola) when she was here one Wednesday.  

My bad for just posting her picture! 

Last night's Secret Sister banquet was a lot of fun. Sweetness made his famous lasagna and everyone brought a side dish!  We feasted like kings, or is that queens? 

After stuffing ourselves, the party really started!  One by one each person gave their February gift to who they'd been being a 'sister' to for the past six months.

Yesterday's "Show and Tell" was over the top! Shirley, Lynn, Vickie, Kay, Cynthia, and Janet brought their projects to share with us!  

Shirley made this top for herself.  Notice how her borders "V" in the middle on each side. Wow!

Lynn brought in this stunner for "Show and Tell". She bought the top at a flea market several years ago but always wanted to finish it.    

She chose a 1930's print from the shop then had it quilted.  

We love the vintage feel of her quilt.

Newlywed Vickie C. recently finished this quilt for her husband, Scott, using batik charm packs.  

She used a blue butterfly 108" backing from the shop then quilted it on her long arm quilting machine.

Kay recently finished this Block of the Month batik applique quilt she's donating for a fundraiser in Texas.  

Kay's aunt, Thadine, loved going to the Senior Citizens Center where she lived in Texas.  Since her aunt's passing, Kay always makes something for their annual fundraiser. 

Kay's donation this year is this stunning batik applique quilt she hand embroidered the back of then had quilted.  

This quilt is truly stunning in person.  We know it will raise a lot of money at this year's auction.  

Aunt Thadine would be proud.

While she was here, Kay also brought in her "pink flamingo" top she recently finished!  

How cute is this? 

Cynthia brought in this top she recently finished. It's called "Love Notes" from the first issue of Block magazine.  

We think Cynthia did a great job (and we love the Kansas Troubles prints she used).

Janet brought in this giant Dahlia top she recently completed.  

Janet's mom started the top years ago and after her passing, Janet wanted to finish it.  

Janet used lots of Kansas Troubles prints for the center and 'logs' of the log cabin corners.  

This is a huge quilt. My camera does not capture the true beauty of this top.  

Great job, Janet!

Kay brought in these totes she recently made.  She used the Hunter's Star die for her Go! cutter to re-vamp a plastic tote she already had.  

After getting it done, she decided to use the same die to make a smaller tote.
