A little show and tell…

Our Friday night ladies LOVE to show off what they are making!  We have been extremely impressed with them!  Here are a few projects that they have been working on.

A great stash buster. And I love the florals. Wow!

This is a floral log cabin, that is set to make a swirl pattern.  We all loved how she took a basic block and was able to modernize it.  Think of all the possibilities!

We love that she chose the Figgy Pudding line…perfect for a gift!

Check this awesome charm pack quilt out.  You may  have seen this in our tutorials already but….the idea is this:  take 5 charm packs, DON’T even cut them, sew them together.  I sewed mine in four patches, then assemble the top!  (told ya, easy peasy!)  Then cut your borders , 2-1/2 inches for the inner border and 5 inches for the outer border.  You will need 3/4 yard for your inner border and a yard and a half for your second border.  SO basically you are looking at total cost being,  $65.00 for your ENTIRE quilt!  Is that NOT exciting!??!  That my friends is WHY we love precuts!  🙂  Your finished quilt measures 62X81  approx.  It will really depend on how many charm squares are in your particular pack.  But it goes together in a jiffy, and leaves you excited to start a new project!  (and I love that figgy pudding line!)

She calls this the “getting her medication right” quilt!

Last, but certainly NOT least this amazing quilt is done by one of our ‘hand piece’ girls!  I kid you NOT….every seam, circle, curve…you name it, it is hand stitched.  (we have three of these ladies that will KNOCK your socks off, with there amazing work.  Their amazing stitches look better than if a machine had done the work.)  I am so impressed with them.

This quilt is on it’s way to Idaho to meet Kaffe Fassett himself.  Yes, yes this lucky lady has a fiance that got her one of the last seats to a workshop that Kaffe is doing in Idaho.  Seriously, the LUCKIEST girl ever!  I can’t wait to hear how it goes….

So, that is a little sneak peak into our amazing quilter’s we have out here…..

What have you been up to?  Any projects that have you busy?  Started in on Christmas gifts yet?   I’d love to know what you are doing….

The girls are busy as pie trying to get our fall samples up.  We are having a blast putting ideas together for our Fall Class schedule and thinking of new ways to decorate the shop.  Life is good here at MSQC.  We have lots of new fabric and patterns coming in all the time.  I am beyond excited about some top secret plans I have for tutorials and project ideas!!  🙂

If you are ever in the area come by and say hi….we would love to chat and hang out with you!

*Come join us Friday  for our Friday night Sew…..We will start at 6pm and go till Midnight.

Our March Friday night sew….

img_6517img_6518img_6519img_6520I just had to get a picture (or4) to show you how much fun we have at our Friday night sew!!  We all get together, working on whatever project we need to finish and hang out.  Eat. Tell jokes.  Help each other. Eat.  Have fun.  Oh did I mention that we sew a little too. (and eat)    🙂       We all bring a snack to share and these ladies DO NOT disappoint!! We have had to ask for recipes for most of the things brought in!   I am thinking we should publish the quilters Friday night sew recipe book!!  Wouldn’t that be fun!??!  Even Mom braved it…..She just wouldn’t stay home knowing we were all having fun.   Anyway, I hope you are all crazy busy quilting.  We have some great things coming down the pipe-line.  (you know, that virtual-web-Internet pipeline)  🙂

Be good.  (or be good at it)
