More Thursday girls!

The Thursday girls also knitted necklaces. This is Sue's.
Here's Paula's.
Here's a different type, also Sue's I think.
They do sometimes quilt on Thursday mornings. Here's Paula hand quilting on her current project.
It's a quilt she's making for her Grandson.
Vi is also hand quilting on her quilt. First she sewed all the hexagons together by hand.
You never know what you'll see them making on a Thursday morning!

Thursday morning Studio Club

Sue is modeling her Lene Shawl that she knitted. It is beautiful and cozy soft! The edging is very unique.
Here's the back view.
This is another style shawl that she made.
Today is the baby shower for Katie from Olive Garden, the Thursday girls favorite waitress. They made this quilt for her and also a knitted bib, booties, and a handmade paper picture book. What a haul! Click the picture to see the daisy edging on the quilt. That is a nice touch!
Oh, also a knitted blanket made by Debbie. Absolutely gorgeous!

EEda Jill's Shawl

First, you know how if you can't find something and go buy another one you immediately find the original one? Well, my paper with the names of the makers of the two quilts I posted yesterday has been missing for weeks. I finally gave up all hope of finding it and posted the pictures with no names and the paper turned up today. Apparently someone at the shop had found it and tacked it to our bulletin board and never mentioned finding it. So, the star quilt is called Summer Stars and was made by Debbie Bagshaw. The black with bright colors quilt was made by Valerie Davitt and was part of a Buck a Block program she participated in. They were with the Brown Baggers from the Norwood area staying at the Cape Point Hotel for a wonderful weekend getaway. Mystery solved!

Now, this is Eeda Jill Belkin modeling her shawl she made. It it gorgeous! She attached lots of her antique beads to it.
Here's the back view.
It is actually a circle of more than 360 degrees. She told me that she used progressively bigger knitting needles as she worked out from the center, thus making the outside larger.
Here's a closer look.
Aren't the beads exquisite?
The Thursday Morning girls had lots of good things to show today. More pictures to come!

It's Wednesday Night! Tricia Curry made this quilt for a deserving little girl.
Lynn Dirusso will have this wallhanging ready when Christmas comes this year!
These next two quilts were made by two people that came to the Cape for a weekend getaway a few weeks ago.
I wrote down their names and the name of the group they were with and lost the paper the info was written on. Sorry! If you're out there, let me know and I'll put your names with the quilts.


Dianne's sister, Jen, and JoAnne stopped in to get some fabric to make a quilt for Jen's daughter Jocelynn. Dianne is doing fine down in Florida.
Marilyn brought these treasures in on Monday. Her Grandmother, Laura Seigler, made them. Marilyn used this Sunbonnet Sue quilt as a little girl.
This one didn't fare as well wherever it was stored. She's going to work at it to get it as healthy as possible.

Pam Heiser was down spending time at the Conference Center with the Northern Lights Quilters. She made her bag, complete with yoyos.

Sheila Garran stopped by to get some guidance from Debbie on the beautiful Quiltsmart Double Wedding Ring quilt she's making for her son, who will be getting married in China soon.
Here's a beautiful baby quilt, hand pieced and quilted by Toni Ricciardi, featuring the adorable Beatrix Potter fabrics.

Grace Filliman is ready to layer and finish this top. The colors make me think of Summer.
Lisa Donley found this sampler quilt at an estate sale. What a nice find! And more Summer colors.
Rona Hiney was up visiting from New York and brought this to show us. It's huge! She is going to keep this quilt for herself!

Dog Quilts

Mary Wheatley made this dog from a picture of Muffin, who belongs to a friend of Mary's that is to be the lucky recipient of this quilt. It's hand appliqued and quilted.
Barbara made this quilt for a dog to use. What a lucky dog!
If my kitties want a quilt, they have to make it themselves, and Jack finds the whole process exhausting.
Louie gets confused and overwhelmed, especially when she is using a pattern for something.

I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day!
Don't you just love the hearts hanging outside the store?
We have enough to include a new tree in our decorating, thanks again to our Heart Lady-Helene. Helene makes hearts all year and then surprises people with them in February.
She comes back each year with a few more and one heart with the year hand embroidered on it. It's fun to check each day to see if we've been "hearted" again.
It's nice to see the bright colored hearts during this gray month! I like how they look with snow caps and icicles.
The hearts will be out until the end of February, and then they will hibernate until the beginning of February next year.

Sandy's is coming along nicely. She used Texture Magic in the center square to add dimension to the square.
Carol's looks good.
Here's Dottie's.
Ann has two to show off. She opted for a pictorial print in the centers.
A good day was had by all!
