The Staff Has Been Busy!

I popped into the shop yesterday and was greeted by some very artistic samples.

Carolyn B has such a creative streak and moves away from traditional quilting towards the art quilts and pictures.

Here is the latest small quilt; an intimate picture using only one piece of fabric and selectively cutting. (In this case it is a batik). Carolyn is going to hold a class in October for Fun, Fast Fusies.

Carolyn has also been making all our samples of the "Calendar" tablerunners by the Little Quilt Company. Here you see September (apples for the teacher), July (R, W & B naturally!) and August (summer vegetables). Again, these are fused onto pieced backings and make fun n' fast projects.

She is also going to offer a class in machine applique using the Rose of Sharon applique designs to make this:

Now, Celeste has been working with batiks to make this sample of McKenna Ryan's "Something Fishy" pattern.

We have all the patterns in stock and an outstanding collection of batiks to make this gorgeous wall-hanging. I love the braided border! and check out those waders in the lower left corner.... a really beautiful job, Celeste!
