We finished up our Block of the Month Sampler Quilts yesterday….well almost! These ladies sewed for over 5 hours putting on borders and bindings. They are almost done but I couldn’t wait to show you how amazing their quilts look. Don’t you love them? I love that they all have the same blocks but they look so different based on everyone’s fabric selections and placement. Gorgeous! Great job Barbara, Debbie, Wilma and Debbie! If you would like to learn to quilt and especially the Quilt as You Go method be sure to register for the new Sampler Quilt Block of the Month sessions starting in October. Here is the link with more information.

If you are like me you have some orphan quilt blocks laying around. I really like this Crazy Quilt Rose so I decided to add it to the back of an old denim jacket that I had. I like it!

Just complete this “Row” Quilt which will inspire our next Block of the Month session. If you have wanted to learn to quilt, Quilt As You Go is the way to go! It is a method of quilting that allows you to quilt entirely on a domestic sewing machine….no need to load your quilt onto a frame and hand quilt….or send it out to a long-arm quilter to finish for you. You can do it all right on your home sewing machine. How much fun is that???!!!!! Tons of fun…trust me. Watch for our Row Quilt class beginning soon. And if you missed out on getting in on the Quilt As You Go Sampler Quilt class we have another beginning in October. Check it out here. Join us and learn this method of quilting.

I just made this panel quilt for my good friend, Carol Ann. Klimt is her favorite painter and she loves the painting, “The Kiss”, so when I saw this panel at a quilt shop last year I bought it with her in mind. Her birthday was this past month so I pulled the panel out of my stash along with some fabrics that I liked with it and whipped up this panel quilt. She loved it! 🙂 Panel quilts are a great way to make a fast quilt. We have a class coming up at The Studio on August 30th to teach you what you need to know to design your own panel quilt.

Nothing feels quite as good as getting your sewing space organized. It seems like it doesn’t take much time to get all scrambled and several times a year I have to take a day to get all the fabrics arranged again and tools put back in their places. It helps me to be able to find what I need. Lincoln seems happy about it. Now to start pulling some fabrics for the next project. WooHoo!
