Quilts by Kathryn Butterworth!

Kathryn Butterworth has been busy!  She has been bringing in a lot of quilts to show us lately!  

She made this one using neutrals,
 and this one using pastels - love the colors!!

She also brought in these 2 baby quilts made from all her scraps of polka dots!

These next two are her latest.  I love this one using the Kaffe houses fabric!

What a great use of the fabric!

Here's another neutral quilt, this time using a house pattern!  
Keep them coming Kathryn!!!

Sue Latis had two quilts to show us on Wednesday night!  This Boston Commons Quilt is probably her favorite one!

She also showed us this one !

Lynn DiRusso matched the green quilt she had to show us!

Mary Hamblin is ready to sew the binding on her quilt!  

She had Celine Spader machine quilt it for her.
 The quilting is great!  Take a closer look!

Mary Gotoweski had finished another quilt top!

I thought you might like to see what Willie has been up to lately!  With all of the black - gray - tan colored prints coming in lately (like Little Black Dress from Moda and Parson Gray from Westminster) Willie was inspired to make this top!

She made wedge blocks and combined them with mystery blocks she had been making.  It came out fabulous! 

This is cool!  Here is one side of what appears to be a tote.  

Here is the other side.

Surprise!  It unfolds to become a lap size quilt!  Perfect for the beach or for a picnic!  You can carry items in it when it is a bag.  I think it would be perfect for a tote to put baby toys, etc., in and open it up and put the baby on it and you have an instant play mat!  

Here's the back!  It is also reversible!  

This is a scrap quilt Willie made not too long ago that put a dent in her stash!  

Here is the back.

Quilts by Mary Lou Fadyen

This month we have some of Mary Lou Macfadyen's quilts hanging on our display walls!  

This one is called is from a pattern called "Raspberry Parfait" by Judy Holley that appeared in the January/February 2002 issue of Quilters Newsletter Magazine.  

Mary Lou made this wallhanging using scraps left over from the one above!


 Mary Lou pieced this lone star quilt and then machine quilted it using her home sewing machine!

The quilting is beautiful!

Mary Lou made this wallhanging and combined techniques from a couple of workshops she had previously attended.  She did curved piecing ala Louisa Smith, 

and thread painted the fist after a workshop with Ellen Ann Eddy!   

Come in and see them!!
