Starry Wonders Block of the Month

This is the block of the month quilt I did last year and finished this summer. Its from Little Quilts--my favorite local quilt shop.
I love traditional quilt patterns and reproduction fabrics. I really like the variety of colors in this one--the cheddar stars really add a lot to the whole quilt.
Shannon did the quilting--again a fabulous job.

Quilt Show

This is the quilt I entered in the East Cobb Quilt Show. It was a block of the month from a local quilt store.
Shannon & me with my quilt. Shannon did the quilting. She won a bunch of ribbons for quilts she had hanging in the show, including Best Machine Quilted.

This is the quilt that won Shannon the Best Machine Quilted ribbon. She is a fabulous longarmer; does everything freehand, no patterns, no pantographs, just what comes out of her brain. She is a true artist.

Rain, rain

Well, we kinda got rained out of the street festival. We stuck it out a while but having no tent, just umbrellas, we were soaked before it even started. A friend took us under her tent, but when the next deluge rolled through, we packed up and left. Next craft table opportunity will be Nov 7th at OFH on New Macland Rd.

Baby Items for sale!!

Since July, I've been sewing and embroidering like crazy, getting ready for the West Cobb Street Festival this Saturday, Sept 19th from 11-3. Whew!! I've got a table with Heirloom baby bonnets, pillows, bibs and burp cloths. And I'll take orders for custom work.

The Street Festival benefits Our Father's Hands, clothing for a cause. It's a great ministry that feeds the homeless in the Atlanta area. They have a store which sells gently used, name brand, second hand clothes.

Bootleg Bonnet

I call this my bootleg bonnet. Don't ask 'cause I'm not telling--its a long story.
Anyway, I've had the kit for a while and finally made it up today. It was pretty easy and went together quick and I think it turned out really cute. With the embroidered cross on the back it would make a great christening bonnet.

Special Quilts

These are two heirloom quilts I've made in Martha Pullen heirloom classes taught by Lisa. They go in my hope chest to pass on to future generations someday. These quilts combine my love of heirlooming, embroidery, and quilting.

Heirloom Vest

This is the heirloom vest I made last year at a Martha Pullen retreat taught by Lisa and Carol. Its made of white linen with ecru and white laces and ribbon. We used all sorts of heirloom techniques like lace shaping, stippling, bridging, entreduex, puffing, tucks, cathedral windows... I love being able to wear what I create.

I finished my Jacket!!

Well, I finally finished this jacket from the Martha Pullen School of Art Fashion. Now all 4 of my projects are done! Yay! I changed most of the fabrics given to us in our kits and I changed some of the design elements, like the hemline, neckline... and I did a rickrack braid technique instead of the iron on scroll. I also added some decorative stitching and an applique embroidery. It turned out to be a lot of work and I'm glad I finished it. Whew! Now on to other unfinished projects.

Teddy Bear's Tea Party

My Artista bears are having a tea party on my Cottage Rose quilt. I made the quilt. The designs are from a Jenny Haskins embroidery disk.

Memory Envelope

I make these for weddings, bridal or baby showers, and birthdays. This one is made of ivory silk dupioni. Inside, I personalize them with the names and date of the event. These are a lot of fun to make.

Headache pillow

Do you have a headache? Just heat this little item in the microwave for 45 seconds, place on forehead and dream your troubles away! Lovely gift.

More cute ID tags

These are so much fun to make.

The Butterfly Room

Here it is! The finished product. It really turned out beautifully. Ann was very pleased with the results and so was I!!

The Butterfly Quilt

These butterflies were hand appliqued by Ann Cook's grandmother, most likely in the '40's. She had over 100 of them. I sewed about 96 of them, on point, into a king-size quilt and made 3 pillow shams. It was quilted by Sandie Casalegno.

Tea Time

Tea cozies I have made.

A trunk full of tea cozies, tea towels, placemats and napkins. Tea, anyone?
