Heritage Happenings…

Busy, busy…I tell ya’, these quilters NEVER just sit!!  I thought you might like to see a snippet of what the Heritage Quilters have been up to…

Sharon finished her Fall quilt and Vickie quilted it for her!!  Such a good friend!  I LOVE, LOVE this quilt…and it’s made of batiks!!


Just LOOK at that quilting…when I grow up I want to quilt just like this!!


This beauty is the product of those group raffles…in exchange for a completed square, you receive a raffle ticket (the more squares you complete, the more tickets you receive).  At the end of the month they draw and the winner takes ALL the blocks.  This lucky winner made this wonderful quilt!!


I LOVE this scrappy quilt!!  Look at the borders!  Perfect! P1180150

Let’s zoom in for a close-up!!  Gorgeous!! 


How sweet is this lovely table topper!!  Very Spring-y!P1180156

And it’s never too soon…or too late…to complete a Christmas project!


Another Scrappy quilt…very NICE…and what a great way to use up all those bits and pieces!


This Spring quilt is made out of soft, soft flannel…perfect for a spring night…and oh so pretty!P1180166

Barb took a class and came away with this gorgeous quilt!!…And all hand stitched!


The quilter who made this Crazy Patch Pillow kicked it up a notch and stitched on all her keepsake jewelry.  She said that now she can enjoy all her treasures everyday  when she puts this pillow on her bed!  Great idea! P1180169 Border prints turned into two lovely baby quilts!!  Fast and easy…and would make lovely gifts! (A great project to practice free motion quilting on!! hmmmm)


Terri found a panel of little animals in a sales bin…so she cut them out and appliquéd them on to terry cloth and made this wonderful hooded towel/blanket and wash cloths!!  Very clever! P1180174

TONS of charity quilts this week… 


A photographer has to be quick taking pictures around here…



More sweet charity quilts…


AND last but certainly NOT least…here’s Grandma Anne..just finished putting the last stitch on this stuffed OWL!!  This is a gift for her baby granddaughter and it couldn’t be sweeter!!  Soft and cuddly!!  You can find the FREE pattern for this owl HERE!
