Louisa Smith, author, teacher, designer and friend will be available at Tumbleweeds Quilt Shop on Tuesday, August 16th from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm to sign her new book titled DOUBLE VISION that was  just released on August 7th.
I know she would love to see many of her friends here who have taken her classes in the past.  A few quilts that are in the book are on display in the shop for a close up look at the construction method the book describes. 
Everyone is welcome and if you have never met Louisa it is a chance to meet an outstanding teacher and writer.

Adele's Class

Ellie Shelley spearheaded the making of this charity quilt for Beth Israel Deaconess Cancer Center with help from Adele's class!  

The class also worked on making themselves fabric baskets!  Here are some of them!

Adele had these four quilts on loan from Swirly Girls Patterns to show everyone!

Gloria (Adele's Mom) showed off her small log cabin wallhanging!  She much prefers using larger pieces of fabric!

Ellen Flaherty has her wallhanging ready to submit to the Hoffman Challenge Exhibit!! There's a lot of little pieces in this!!  Beautiful!!
Sue Latis showed us her mystery quilt she made along with the Crazy Quilters in Falmouth!!
Stephanie Walenski made this quilt for her Mom, who will enjoy reading the funny quotes on it!!

She is also finishing up this quilt in plenty of time for Halloween!
Carol Ayotte didn't miss teaching a class even while recovering from shoulder surgery!  The plain  black sling wasn't her style so she machine embroidered a recoverable patch for it to brighten it up!!

Her daughter in law, Karen, came to class and worked on patriotic tablerunners!

Betty Ann Mahoney spent the day making Christmas decorations!!  Click on the picture to see them better. It's hard to see in the picture, but they are dimensional!  The images are raised!

She is also making cards using the same technique!!
