Dorothy has so many coloring book supplies, Sharon decided to make her a holder for her collection of gel pens! What a bestie!
Karla stopped by to show us the Jelly Roll 1600 top she made for her grand daughter. Wow!
We love the colors and know Karla's g/d will too!
Kay brought in this quilt she recently finished for a fundraiser in Texas.
Kay bought the center panel at the shop then added borders to make it the size she wanted it to be.
The real beauty of this quilt is on the back. Kay hand embroidered (using variegated thread) a pattern on the back then had it machine quilted.
Kay spent 337 hours hand embroidering the back of this stunning quilt. Wow!
The quilter used stars and stripes in an all-over pattern which really dazzles in person.
I tried to take a closeup of the quilting and Kay's hand work, I hope you can see the details of both.

While she was here, Kay shared the pictures she's colored so far in her "Butterflies" coloring book.
I love the colors she used and her decision to outline some of the butterflies without filling in any color. Genius!
Kay said when she finishes a picture, she signs and dates the page. What a great idea!
