Recapturing Last Week

Last Thursday was Breakfast Club. I spent the day sewing, sharing, talking and eating with other quilters. FUN! Here is a little show and tell. Alaska has had unusually fabulous summer weather so the ladies have not been working much on quilting projects.

Thank goodness Marie was there because she provided most of the goodies for show and tell. Here she has a table topper she quilted on her domestic sewing machine.

This gorgeous bag has all kinds of pockets inside...I should have gotten a picture of it! This is a Whistlepeg Creek Productions pattern, #1173 Pockets A Plenty.

This fun quilt is from Kim Brackett's, "Scrap-Basket Surprises," called Pinwheel.

Maris just got this Asian fabric quilt back from the quilter. It is Plan C from Carrie Nelson's, "Schnibbles Times Two."

One of the ladies who works at the quilt shop where we meet brought in this newly quilted top for us to view. It is made of blocks from the shop's Saturday Sampler in silks. Once a month you get a pattern and fabric to make one block at a very inexpensive price. To get the next month's block you have to bring in your completed block from the previous month. The catch is to keep up...if you get behind the blocks are much more expensive to buy later! 

This is the quilt pattern we worked on for the session, Jelly Jive. It takes 40 strips. I added four more strips to give it a little more length. I used one of my bali pops, Zinfandel. I got two-thirds of this top done in our class. It's a quick and easy quilt. Untrimmed it is about 50 x 66".

I just finish this quilt top yesterday. It started out as Reveille from Carrie Nelson's, "Another Bite of Schnibbles." I think I will call it Reveille Blues. It's 72 x 80".

This week I am hoping to get some backings pieced so I can actually quilt some tops.

Hi Debbie, I found your blog from Judy's Design Wall Monday. I am a pilots wife also and about to have an empty nest. I love the quilt on your header. I recognized the block, but not the setting, so I spent a happy time looking all over your blog! I SHOULD have been cleaning my house...we have a wedding in TWO WEEKS! I will visit again soon...Beth in Arizona
