Bettina Royce came in wearing this beautiful shawl she had made. It's wool, with appliqued birds and embroidery. I love it! I should have taken a picture of the back, too.
I did take a picture showing her Carpet Bag that she also made. The color doesn't show in this picture very well. It's green velvet with a purple/blue owl.
Here's a better look. The eyes are buttons from her Grandmother's dress from the 20's. The wings are a silk fabric that is gathered for texture. The flower on the right is crocheted. It's beautiful!
We got in a pile of heart fabric from Moda today. There's still time to make pillowcases for your favorite Valentine. Show the LOVE!
We also received some nautical fabric. There's jelly rolls to go with it so you can make something wonderful.

Mary Collari is finally coming over to the wild side! She bought her first Kaffe Fassett fabric ever! It was bound to happen sooner or later.
Ruth will be having a Valentine class on February 2nd from 2-5. Come and play with angelina and ribbon and whatever else. It'll be fun!
Laurie LaConte was by and showed us this Bargello landscape quilt. Love it! She let us borrow it and you can come see it hanging if you'd like.
Here's another one of Laurie's. The picture doesn't do it justice. It's really soft and beautiful and peaceful in real life.

Carol stopped by yesterday! She's doing great! Her new knee is working good. She was laying in supplies for her projects. She's getting a lot done in between rehab. I'm sure she'll be showing us lots of things soon.
Barbara Rodgers is down in Florida right now. Before she left she showed us some finished things she had made. Like this bag.
This quilt is one she made, too.
Very cool blue and orange combination! Barbara made this one and Mickey quilted it for her.
Here she's modeling what looks like a yoyo scarf. Actually it's a work in progress. She'll keep making yoyos and adding them until she gets tired of doing it. She's probably been adding a lot while down in Florida. I'll update her progress when she gets back.
We all miss you Barbara!

Binky's Quilts

This month we have more of Binky Page's quilts on display. Her work is simply beautiful! This gorgeous applique is in frame.
Here's a manger scene.
A small tree skirt.
Remember Snow Bound? All of a sudden it seems like a lot of people are making this quilt again. It really is timeless.
More beautiful applique.
I actually made one of these Piece of Cake Quilts. I hand appliqued it and hand quilted it, except when I got to the borders I switched to machine quilting. Now it's been sitting for about 10 years waiting for me to finish the binding. It's sewed on, I just need to hand stitch the back of the binding. Binky finished her's.
Her work is spectacular!

A good time was had by all!

I don't think I ever showed you the Bug Quilt that Nicole is working on.
She's machine appliqueing the bugs onto the backgrounds.
The bugs are so cute!

Jeannine made this fish out of fleece as a gift for someone. The green background fabric actually has pool balls all over it. It worked great as fish fabric.
Who knew!
