Sew Many Quilts

If you're looking forward to seeing the show and tell posts, then I have to say, "Sorry". There won't be any for June.   All of the quilt shops in the area have been getting their stores in ship shape condition for all the quilters who will be coming this week for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.    The classrooms are transformed into more quilt goodness, so we don't usually meet the end of June and all of July.  

I promise to get lots of pictures of our show and tell projects to share with you when we meet next time.  (not sure when that will be).

In the meantime, I went into Sew Many Quilts in Bend to share all the new goodies with you.    I will be working there Tuesday thru Saturday, so if you're in the area, come in and say "hi".  

This post will be picture heavy, but if there's anything you are interested in, give them a call.

Since today is Independence Day in the USA, I thought I'd start with these two.



And on to the wool goodies 


Valdani galore!







Flannels to go with your wool projects. 


This is the shop's Row by Row quilt.  
Come in to the shop to pick up your free pattern or buy a kit if you'd rather.  
This year's theme is "Home Sweet Home".  What is sweeter than our machine and notions! 


This pretty quilt is "Vintage Blooms".  A kit is offered for $134.00


Isn't this one cute?   It's made from the book "All in a Row" by Moda. 






This skyline quilt has been hugely popular.  


Halloween anyone?    
The shop has a huge section of fabrics and patterns devoted to all things fall and Halloween. 




















This next one is called "Triple Star" and the kit is $80. 
 I love the blue background.  


Go Ducks!   
A quilt for the little Duckie in your life.   










Batiks anyone?   


All the Frivols you need.   




So that's just a little snippet of all the wonderful quilts and products that the shop has.   
Stop by if you're in the area.    
And, have fun all week with all the activities going on.   The weather is looking good.   

See you later in the month with show and tell.  

Hugs, Anne

Just in time.

Nothing like waiting till the very last minute to get the May show and tell projects up on the blog.  

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.   It feels good to know this is the unofficial start to the summer season.   Our town will begin to see throngs of vacationers who will increase our summer population by as much as 20,000.  It's great for the economy, but not so great for traffic and restaurant reservations!   But, I guess it's what you live with when you're in a vacation destination community.   For those of you who are new to the blog, I live in Central Oregon in the wonderful town of Bend.  

On to the show.

Nancy finished two projects.   The first one a monthly by Buttermilk Basin. If it doesn't look like one you've seen before it's because Nancy always puts her "spin" on patterns.  Cute, huh?


She made this quilt for friends who have a black leather sofa.  Won't it look pretty?  Sorry, I don't have the pattern name.


Linda continues making blocks for her Halloween quilt by Buttermilk Basin.


Looks like Leslie is a bit camera shy, but she sure has a cute haircut.  LOL  
Again, I don't have the name of the pattern for her patriotic pillow, but she finished it just in time for the summer season. 


This one is a variation of the Row by Row runner from Sewing Seeds Quilt Shop in New Ulm, MN.   After she saw mine, she ordered the kit and did her own thing.   


Lori T is new to our Woolies group and she started her journey using Sue Spargo's stitches book.  What a great way to learn new stitches. 


It's a needle holder!


Jean  is also new to the Woolies group and check out her first projects.   I'd say she's got the wool talent for sure.   She's finished these 4 blocks in no time at all.  


They are all out of this book.  


Sue is a huge contributor to the Quilts of Valor program.  These are her two latest finishes.



Sandy managed to whip up a few finishes (again) this month.   First up is "Liberty Baskets" by Quilts by Cheri.   It's on my to do list and after seeing hers...it's moved up to the top of the list.  


This little mat is an original by Sandy.  She made 3 of them.  One for me, one for Karen, and one for herself.   Nice to have talented friends, huh?   (She also included the house and candle in the gift). Thank you Sandy.   


This wonderful quilt is called "Saltbox Sampler" by Under the Garden Moon.   I'm also working on this one but still have the borders to finish.   Love it. 


This little one was a kit she bought at Something to Crow About quilt shop in Springfield, OR.


And her last finish in May is the Indygo Junction monthly from the Folk Quilt of the Month series.  It's the one for November.  


I'm also working on the monthlies and I managed to finish up January 


And Dec. 


This next little one is #5 in the Kindred Spirits Club from the ladies at Yellowcreek Quilt Designs.  I've really enjoyed making these small quilts.   When I get them all finished, I'll take a picture of all of them together so you can see how fun they are.  


When I was in California a couple of years ago, we went to Country Loft quilt shop (which is closing soon.  Boo Hoo).   I picked up the pattern for this stitchery quilt by JoAnn Mullaly called "Joy of Christmas"


And last, but not least, here is another little "Sew Simple BOM" from Buttermilk Basin.   It's the one for July.  


So, that's it for May.   See you in June.    

Hugs, Anne
