The Clubhouse was packed yesterday…the AC was on full blast as it was a sunny hot day out. Now that may seem weird to you…everyone rushing inside on a sunny day but when it reaches a certain temperature it’s just too darn hot to do anything…so why not stitch inside where it’s cool and comfy?! Now don’t get me wrong, I am NOT complaining about our FANTASTIC weather…especially when friends are sending pictures like this of HOME…yes over 18” of the white stuff!! YIKES!!
Yes, I am enjoying our sunny, hot weather…oh yes I am!! And I am enjoying it more and more as I look at this picture!!
So what went on in that cool and comfy Clubhouse yesterday?? Well…
Gina prepped her hand applique piece…LOVE IT!!
And even manage to start hand stitching…
Heritage Judy practiced her Free Motion Quilting on this charity baby quilt…and it was VERY impressive!! Judy has a Handi Quilter in her park model…if you can image THAT!!
Can you see the FMQ “Sweet…”…
…and “dreams” spelled out in FMQ? Very cute!! Some lucky baby will be the recipient of this cozy quilt!!
And Gwen has finished the main part to her charity quilt…she is now working on putting borders on…LOVE this quilt!!
Susanne is back and brought some show and tell…
Loved this scrappy Christmas Quilt and matching pillow!!
Here’s a close up…she didn’t remember the name of the pattern so I can’t help anyone with that…sorry!!
Lovely…and beautifully quilted!!
Susanne also brought along this sweet little cardinal mat…taking paper piecing to a whole other level!! WOW!!
It’s a Paper Panache pattern….
Christine finished her Paris Quilt which will be mailed to….PARIS!! It is going to her 10 year old God-daughter who lives in Paris!! She is going to FLIP when she unwraps this beauty!!
When Camille looks out her bedroom window she can see the Eiffel Tower!
I love the scrappiness of this quilt…scraps mixed with the sophistication of the Eiffel Tower!! Very sweet!!
And of course the border ties them all together!! Very nice!
This is the quilt that Linda is working on…It is very unusual…Do you see that pink inner border? It’s not fabric but fabric PETALS!
Linda was busy sewing on her petals yesterday…
Yes, they sell petals for this purpose…online!!
And you can find the quilt in this book…. I will be showing pictures of the finished quilt for sure!! Stay tuned!
How’s this for a picture…we are, what we sew!! haha Norma is getting right into this quilt!! Man…I LOVED the colours in this quilt!
This periwinkle blue is beautiful and very effective in this quilt!! The colours just pop this quilt…and the big blocks showcase the fabrics to perfection!! This is going to be a gift to her daughter-in-law!! I KNOW she is going to score tons of brownie points with this one!!
So there you have it! Another Monday in the Clubhouse…
This year we are fortunate to get the Clubhouse TWO days for Quilting!! SEW..we get to do this all over again tomorrow!! And then on Thursday is the annual SPRING FLING…where we motor off to EIGHT QUILT shops from Corona, CA to Palm Desert…all along the I-10 Freeway! Bring it on!!
Last week I had my purse stolen…(a long story…:o(( to say the least!!) so I have my fingers crossed that my new debit and credit cards come in before the shop hop! Also I REALLY miss my driver’s license!! A temporary one will arrive in about another week…if all goes well!! In the meantime my wings have been clipped…
Have a terrific Tuesday and happy stitching!!~P
