The Winners of our Small Town Quilt Show

The Winners of our Small Town Quilt Show

Yes, Yes…we had two winners!  We had such a fun time hosting the JC Penney Days Quilt Show.  (yes, we live in Mr. JC Penney’s hometown)  Pretty exciting!  🙂  The turn out was great, and it was a wonderful variety of new quilts and old quilts.

Just look at that cute squirrel. And the colors are so gorgeous!

This is our 1st prize winner, Velva from Hamilton.  She does amazing appliqué work and we were wowed by the quilts she brought.  This was her first time ever entering a quilt.  She actually took first and second place.

I am just in love with this log cabin…so fresh, SEW fun.

And here is Miss Maxine, from Polo with her swirly log cabin finished! She got 3rd place!   (I showed this one a few weeks back, from our Friday night sew-show and tell)  I love how she finished it with those borders and the scallop edge!  Cute!  (she used the RJR twice the charm)

Thanks to all the ladies that participated.  We sure enjoy seeing all that you create….each one of the quilts (and projects) you make are wonderful!

One Moda turnover….

One Moda turnover….

That’s all it took!  I am a HUGE fan of Sandy Klopp, (the designer of American Jane fabric) and when we got the Snippets line in the shop I couldn’t wait to try something out.

Since I haven’t played around much with the turnovers I got all excited and (with Mom’s help) we whipped this little baby blanket up in an afternoon!!

We used one turnover, and a yard and a half of the blue dot (moda) and BOOM it was done!  Then to top off the whole thing we scalloped the edges, using this scallop edge tool.  Mom quilted it and now all that’s left is the binding.  (which is happening even as I type this!!)

Seriously, easy and fun!  If you haven’t tried the new turnovers yet, you are missing out!!  Don’t be afraid.  It is easier than you might think.
