Clubhouse Finale…

Yesterday you saw what Anne had accomplished on her 2 week hiatus…babysitting in Virginia!  Now let me show you what the rest of the crew was working on…and keep in mind we are down to about eight or nine members.  The Snowbirds are heading North…the gals from Alberta and Northern BC had to head home early as the massive snow that they received this year is now melting…flooding has become a major issue!

Winnipeg Doris was busy stitching these lovely blocks….  She had quite a stack by the end of the day.  This is going to be a quilt for her lucky DIL…P1220864

Kim was sewing these sweet little blocks from Primitive Gatherings fabric ‘Old Glory’ …

P1220865

As I was lining up these adorable blocks we broke out into the American National Anthem…we couldn’t HELP it…they just make you want to be American!  Gwen had her own version to the song…being the only American standing that was alright!

P1220874 - Copy

Yup…dang cute…and LOVE the fabric!

Kim bought the kit from THE RED DOOR while at the Road to California.

Kathy was busy putting the borders on to this wonderful table topper…

P1220869

Siena was whipping up Rob Peter to Pay Paul blocks….

P1220881

…using French General’s new line of fabric called, Chateau Rouge!  Gorgeous stuff!  That General KNOWS how to make great fabric!

Man, I love this quilt!!  Siena is making it for her mother…what a daughter!  Her mom is going to flip!

P1220882

You NEED a close up to appreciate this fabric!

P1220883P1220884P1220885

Gwen is working on her patriotic quilt…always with a smile on her face! 

P1220886

Such sweet blocks…would you believe that Gwen is donating this patriotic quilt to her local veteran’s hospital!  What a kind and thoughtful thing to do…and that’s SEW Gwen!

P1220888

Judy finished her ‘Dress Me Up Frosty’…and I DIDN’T get a picture of it!!  What was I THINKING??  I will have to take my camera over to Judy’s house and see if she hasn’t packed it…hmmm wonder if Judy has packed her iced coffee maker? :o)))

Anyway…Judy was prepping her first BOM from the RED DOOR…it’s Primitive Gathering’s newest pattern called ‘Warm Winter Blessings’ made with ‘Snowman Gatherings’ Fabric…probably the cutest fabric EVER made!!

All together… “Ahhhhhhhhh….”  

P1220866

Seriously, I could never make this as a BOM as it’s just too darn cute…I would want to make all the blocks all at once!  But that doesn’t mean you can’t!  I bet Donna from the RED DOOR still has room in her class for YOU…

P1220868

I mean REALLY…how can you say NO to that face?  (And YES, I bought the pattern while at Road to CA!!)

P1220867

And last but certainly not least, Jan is putting the finishing touches on her Cowgirl bag…sew adorable!

P1220889

Her grand-daughter is ‘into’ horses…even owns one!  Just look at the print…horses, saddles and barbed wire… with a touch of flowers on the pocket!  She is after all a cowGIRL!  Jan is now on the hunt for the perfect buttons to add a bit of bling…

P1220890

Here’s the back!  Yup…I predict a squeal of delight when her GD receives this gift!! What a grandma!

P1220891

So that’s it…another Clubhouse season finished!   I am going to miss all of these wonderful ladies…A finer group you will not find ANYWHERE!  Yup…it’s a sad time around THE SANDS at this time of year! 

BUT we DO have ONE MORE girls’ trip planned for today… to our BFF’s!!  JOANN is waiting for us…sent us a ton of coupons for our little outing!  Yeehaw!!  One more little roundup before we hit the trails!

Have a FUN Friday and Happy Quilting!~P

Seems like the ladies spend their vacation time sewing their little hearts out. Those red, white, and blue stars caught my eye. I have always liked star designs.

I wonder if the rv park because a ghost town in the summer. Must be very hot there.
