Making It on Monday…

Here are a few snippets of what quilters are working on while at Heritage Quilting on Mondays..

Hazel has been busy appliqueing…this quilt is going to become a cherished wedding quilt when she is finished! Stunning!


Sandy was stitching this pillow closed and I BELIEVE it will be going under the tree for her daughter!  Very sweet!


Yup..Glynis whipped this Quilt top up in a matter of minutes and it is about to get ‘pinned’!  How cute is this!  Another quilt that will be going under wraps!


Jane’s Hexies were putting a ‘hex’ on me!  Love the fabrics in these!


DANG CUTE!!  This will be going into a row quilt…wool stockings…


…with needle felted tops!  Screaming SWEET!


More hand quilting…Yup…I’m loving this one too!


Most quilts and runners get their bindings stitched on while at Heritage…the perfect project for the perfect project!


And there are always big tables put up for this very purpose…pinning a quilt…getting it ready for either hand quilting or machine quilting!


These tables are in hot demand…get a number! 


And a close-up…all hand stitched!!  A beauty!


And of course there are plenty of quilters carrying their own creations…

A tumbler bag…


…filled with pockets and flaps!


And check out this one…Yowzers…lots of work in this one…but the attention to detail makes it unique and one of a kind!




And this was our Block of the Month!  Magnificent!!  A block is presented (taught) at the beginning of the month…the rules are given…ie colours and technique and those wishing to participate can make a block. The blocks gets put it in a special box and a raffle ticket with the participant’s name goes into the Give Away bin.  If you make five blocks, you get five chances…and at the end of the month you might just win enough blocks to make a QUILT!! 


Who wouldn’t LOVE to win this gorgeous quilt?!  Major SCORE!!

So there you have it…SEW I wonder what the quilters will be working on today?  I better take my camera just in case!

Have a Making it kind of Monday and Happy Stitching!~P


  1. I'm sure those quilters will be up to something fabulous, they are so talented. Wish I had a group like that near me. I know I'd be very inspired by them.

  2. More fun quilts and I love the stockings. I do have stocking quilts and that is on my to do list.


  3. Your group looks like so much fun. I wish I had a group like that near me!

    I do love the needle felting on the stockings. What a great idea!

  4. Needle felted tops! Too cute. I hope you will be able to share the rest of the quilt down the road -- it's looking very creative so far. :D

    I like the idea of sewing a binding at a group meeting. Not much concentration is needed, so it would give you plenty of time to chat!

  5. I always love your show and tell posts. There is always so much going on and plenty of inspiration.

  6. Wow, what a prolific bunch you hang out with, P! Love the big red star, and the blue star blocks at the end. Oh and all the rest of it as well!

  9. Thank you so much for this show and tell. I really love the blocks in the BOM...what a great prize someone will win!

  10. I've been wanting to make that reverse color star (my name for it) for quite some time. What a nice win for some lucky quilter.
