T-Shirt Rag Quilts

20190331_184356.jpg We had the best class this weekend with these three ladies making T-shirt Rag Quilts from their old t-shirts.  It is such a great project to repurpose and use those shirts just T-shirt Rag Quilt washedtaking up drawer space.  Hearing all the stories about the shirts was great fun.  This is a terrific project and the quilts are a wonderful addition to your home…soft and cozy…great to snuggle up under and watch a movie.  If you missed this one don’t worry, we have another one coming up on Saturday, April 6th but register now to get in by clicking this link.

20190312_111925.jpgDid you ever have one of those days (or weeks) where things just didn’t go right….at all? That is what has been going on lately.  UGH!  And this morning I went to pull out my go-to machine to work on a new pattern for a quilt and forgot that it was still down at The Studio from last weekend’s sewing class.  UGH again!!!!  But then I thought maybe I will use my little “Nola Mae”, my Featherweight machine.  (People with Featherweights name their machines because they become part of the family.  Mine is named for Granny, my paternal grandmother.  She patiently let a little girl “help” her sew.  I learned so much from her so I wanted this one to be named for her.)  The minute I threaded her up and made the first few stitches my mood lightened and I smiled.  20190312_112019.jpgShe turned my day around.  This little machine makes me so happy!  Read more about this little girl here.

Where are our Rooster fans?  We have a quilt for you!  Join us on April 7th and make one for yourself.  We just found this beautiful fabric and we will be making these cool Rooster Rag Quilts. Join us! This is the beginning Rag Quilt class so even if you have never sewn before you can do this. It’s a great way to learn. Come to The Studio for 4 hours and leave with a quilt. How much fun is that???!!! Rag quilts are the latest trend in quilting. They are a quick, fun and different type of quilt offering a refreshing break from traditional quilting! (If you have a machine that you have been wanting to learn to use you can bring it and learn on your very own.)  Register here.

This workshop will be held on Sunday, April 7th at 1 pm.  Space is extremely limited. Only 6 students for this workshop.

FEE: $79 includes all supplies to produce one Lap Size Rag Quilt.  Click here to register.

Nap Pads for Pups

 

Yesterday I dusted off an old pattern and whipped up a new nap pad for the boys.  I used to make tons of these to sell when I had the gift shop.  It’s so much more fun having these colorful, beautiful fabrics instead of the same old plain dog beds.  Anyone interested in a class or purchasing a pretty new, washable nap pad?
