Quilts by Trish and Terry Currey

Trish Currey made this Moon Over The Bay quilt in a workshop in Falmouth!

Trish also made this Jo Morton quilt!

Trish made this one and didn't like the border she used so it sat for a while until she found another fabric to replace the original one!  

Terry Currey (Trish's Mom) showed us her latest finishes, this one for a girl going off to college, and

this one for her mailman who is retiring!

The Modern Wedge Workshop

For anyone who might be interested, Kathy Doherty from Material Obsession will be on the Cape to teach a two day workshop on May 28 and May 29, 2014!!

The class description is:
The Modern Wedge is an exciting workshop opportunity for beginners to advanced, art quilters and
traditional quilters.  The workshop focus is on creative use of the wedge shape, exciting use of color
and a variety of design options.  By changing size, layout or use of color, we learn to move the eye and imagination around the quilt.

Pictured here are some of her examples of wedge quilt design!

"Aunt Mary's Workroom"

Mary Wyman makes wonderful dolls and miniature scenes and one of them is on display at Tumbleweed this month!  

The detail is amazing!  Click the pictures to see!!  This scene is called "Aunt Mary's Workroom" and you have got to see it!  Aunt Mary is wearing a necklace and has on a bracelet!  She is sitting in her workroom reading a quilt book.

She has fabric stored under her cutting table and there is a rotary cutter, scissors, and pins on the table  ready to be used!

Check it out!  There is a kitten!  The ott light is plugged in!  

It would have been much easier to have a closed sewing basket but this one is open and full of supplies!

Mary Wyman also sells her dolls and does custom orders too!

New Fabric!

Time Flies!!  It's been a busy week with lots of new fabrics!
Some new Westminster fabrics from Kaffe and Brandon have arrived!  

These houses seem very "Cape Cod" to me, especially the pastel one!

New juvenile prints from Wilmington!

This panel from Timeless Treasures is back in stock!  It wasn't here long the first time, about a week maybe.  

The striped one makes a beautiful table runner!  

It's almost planting time!  

Time to gather your seeds!  

Some more new Westminster!  Some are familiar patterns with new colors!
