Santa’s Workshop…

…has been humming!!  It’s  such fun to go to Heritage Quilt to see what everyone has been making for gift giving or for decorating.

These are all works in progress~ 

A lot of the members bring quilts that need to be readied for quilting..pinned or basted.  It makes it so much easier to do it on top of large tables rather than crawling around on your knees.

Vickie is working on this gorgeous tablecloth…a red swirl fabric is going on next for the border.  Perfect for a kitchen..anyone for a coffee?

Love the colours in this quilt…can you see the the green stars?

P1100727 Sharon made this gem out of African/batik prints…isn’t it lovely?P1100728

Vickie is a VERY prolific quilter…I love this quilt…VERY pretty!  She used Americana fabric but put in the golds to make it her own.

P1100729

Very effective…

P1100730 I got very excited when I saw these blocks from Pat Sloan’s “Meadow Breeze”.  I have been watching Pat  make these blocks on her blog…and she is offering them for FREE to her readers!!  This quilter ordered the kit from Pat…and what a deal!  The colours are gorgeous and so is her stitching!!  You can see Pat’s finished quilt HERE!

Carol has also been busy!!  She has been working on this advent calendar for 5 years!  I’m going to talk more about this little quilt tomorrow…it deserves a day of it’s own…after all there ARE  five years of work wrapped up in this little baby!!

Love all of the quilts, that coffee cup one is a really fun piece, perfect for a dining nook. I am going to try and stand up long enough to cut out jan pateks pattern for today, that is so fun and I could use a simple pattern to enjoy doing today.
