Linda showed us her chicken quilt she is making with fabric left over from her hexagon chicken quilt.
Here's a closer look!
She made this one using a pattern from Bunny Hill Designs.

That's a lot of squares!

We've received a lot of fabric lately! Silent Cinema by Jenean Morrison for Freespirit arrived!
Also from Freespirit we received some Loulouthi by Anna Marie Horner and Aviary II by Joel Dewberry!
Some Kaffe came in that were reorders that we couldn't be without!
These new black and white fabrics have a lot of movement in them and would do wonders in a quilt!
Have you noticed the giant nest on the telephone pole on 6A heading to the left out of our parking lot a little before the railroad tracks? People have asked us about it. I'm told that it's occupied by ospreys, but it looks like Big Bird's nest to me. It's big enough!
I've seen two occupants flying to and from it. I don't know if there are baby ospreys in it or not. I like seeing it on my way home from the store.

Tuesday Night Quilts

Kellie Parham comes to class Tuesday nights with Willie teaching. Here's what she's finished lately!
These fabrics look almost like velvet, don't they?
This was a mystery quilt that they worked on.
Suzanne Adler made this Lil' Twister quilt. It's a fun one! We have the templates at the shop.
This is one that Suzanne is making, along with the pattern, to appear on Moda's website.

A gentleman stopped in the shop yesterday asking if we had any empty spools. He needs some to make clamps to use while repairing violins. These smaller Coats Dual Duty spools are the right size, so if anyone has any empty spools to give us we will pass them on.
These new summery fabrics arrived this week. Flip Flops and ice cream cones and polka dots and stripes!
Of course, since it's July we're getting new Christmas fabric! Time to start if you are making anything for Christmas!
Cheryl was using her latest bag creation this week! Nice fabric combo!
Ann Grey brought in her latest bag to show us! The shell fabric she used is perfect for the summer!

Ann and Charlotte are visitors from Australia! Their local quilt shop is Material Obsession, which is one of my favorite quilt shops that I have never been to! I check the Material Obsession blog all the time and can tell that I would love to hang out there. Check it out here!Pat Cairns brought in her Cape Cod Quilt to show us! It's very Cape Cod, even cranberries for a border!
Linda brought in this cake stand quilt that she made from blocks that were part of a block exchange.
She also made this wallhanging. She's been busy!
This one was made by Tina Richardson. She used a Kate Spain pattern for it. Pretty colors!
