Busy, busy, busy!

The Sale was a hit!  ....we were very busy and last night was our monthly Sit & Sew - actually we may rename it to Sit & Eat - Quilting for Dessert!

I made one of my favourite meals - Chicken Shnitzel, Green Beans with Mushrooms and Smashed Potatoes, then I baked up Apple Strudels for dessert.  It was delicious and the girls enjoyed it too!

Then we got down to some serious quilting - here's Linda putting her Christmas Quilt up on the board.....can't wait to see this one done!  She's using black and whites as her background, it's looking awesome.....

 This morning in between customers Kathy was taking Elaine's Christmas Club Class and here are the blocks every body made......they are gorgeous!
 ....and the girls brought Show and Share - here's Beth's 2,900 and something 1" block quilt - it's amazing - she made it for her granddaughter......
Beth brought in this fabulous quilt top - it's from a class Luarissa taught a couple of years ago - a Lorraine Stagness technique......
 This is from last Wednesday's Autumn Braid class which Elaine taught - you can see the sample quilt hanging to the left - really cool Beth!
 Linda wowed us with her Patchwork Sampler quilt which is completed - it was one of our Blocks of The Month last year, taught by Laurissa.  Linda quilted it on Elaine's long arm machine last is awesome!
I have to say I just love it when you all bring in your quilts to share with us!  It's really motivating!  Makes me want to get I'm off to quilt!

Happy Quilting!
