Friday, May 27

Greetings on this fabulous Friday ~a kickoff to a long holiday weekend.

This week we've had a very fun and productive week here in the shop,

and thanks to our Busy Binder have some fun (or at least we think so!) projects to show!!

Notice the bright yellow flowers on the machine?

Gerber Daisies are one of Lacey's favorite flowers. We both looked to their cheery-ness on this chilly and drippy day today. But what I really wanted to point out was. . .

. . .the twins!! We have 2 flowers that sprouted from one stem!

Last week we showed our sample out of Jovial and today we got some yardage.
So here are some of our coordinates (so new we haven't gotten them un-packed yet!)

Now-- on to our new show and tell samples!!

A while ago (back in late March when snow was falling) we showed this quilt.
After much thought into its quilting process Darci picked a home-run idea.
She utilized those stitches that many of us may have on our machines and used them to fill in the large cream areas on the quilt~giving it a drastic change in appearance~one that we LOVE!!

There has been a lot of interest in this as people have seen it being quilted.

If you have fun decorative stitches on your machine this quilt is a great one to play around on using those stitches!! Just get your bobbin's ready as it doesn't take long before you are out and anxious to start in again!

While Darci filled bobbins, Lacey battled the Bernina.

This quilt pattern is found in the Quiltmania magazine and is called Kites.

The fabrics used were Lilac Hill by Moda's Brannock & Patek.

Also-fresh off the machine is this super quick (and cute) table topper by This & That patterns.

If you are in need of a quick gift this is a great one to add to the list as it can easily be done in a short afternoon.

Now. . .if only next week will be as productive as this week. Our "to-do" stack will grow a bit smaller and our show and tell stack a little bigger!! Next week you can look forward to some "SW Recipes" show and tell, kids quilts, and dimensional pinked flowers. . .

We want to wish you all a safe and fun Memorial Day holiday and that we all take a moment to stop and remember all of those brave men and women who have given their lives so we can enjoy doing what we choose to do each and every day.

And also to take a moment to appreciate the things that we have around us. As rain continues to stream down our windows and interrupt our plans we are thankful that all it is-is rain.
