Customer trunk show

Our “Customer Trunk show” for September and October has been and still is,  Kaye Evans.  Many of you know Kaye and have come in to see her gorgeous quilts.  We will have a Meet and Greet on Saturday October 6th from 1-3pm.  Come in and talk to Kaye about her quilts; she is such a knowledgeable and friendly lady.  See you then.
Here is a preview of some of the lovelies she has on display:

Show and tell

We love to send fabric out the door, but we REALLY love it when it comes back for a visit, beautifully grown up into a lovely sewing or quilting project.

Noall Child recently shared this quilt made from Moda fabrics.

And a closeup highlighting the quilting.

Mitzi Shaw and her husband team up on their quilts.  She pieces and the pictures are hand painted by her husband. 


And this Fairy quilt is made by Judy Eddy.  It is a lovely use of a panel.

Thank you all for sharing, and, readers, don’t forget to bring your creations back so we can oooh and aaah over them.

Beginning quilters advance

Here are two quilts made by some of the students from our beginning quilting class.  Wow, with a little help from a great teacher they are well on their way to quilting success.

Kathy Severing finished this colorful top.

And Kevin Mead made this turtle quilt for his girlfriend with the skills and confidence he gained in beginning quilting.

Congratulations quilters!  Keep up the good work.

Just a reminder

Just a reminder!  The HMQS show started today and runs through Saturday at South Towne Expo Center.  
My daughter Holly and I went this morning.  You will be awed! inspired! and overwhelmed with the beautiful quilts.  There are so many categories that surely one will be your favorite. 
You will have to make sure you see the Youth Division quilts.  One of my employees,  Deanna,  has a lovely 11-year-old daughter – Abigail.  She entered a quilt that she cut out, pieced, quilted, and bound 100% by herself.  It was our pleasure to be there this morning to hear her name called in the special category of “Under 14”.  She WON THE PRIZE. 
We are so proud of her.  Her quilt was small bowties in graduating colors and was titled “Prom Night.”
She has made many small doll size quilts, some of which are for sale in our store, but this one was larger and SO FUN!  Way to go Abigail – we hope you continue and create more award winning quilts in the future. 

April and May Trunk Show

We’d like to thank Dorene Parker for allowing us to show her quilts during February and March.  They were viewed by a lot of people and the comments were wonderful to hear and were passed on to her.  Thank you Dorene for your inspiration!
Our next resident quilter is Karen Phillips from Pleasant View, Utah. She is an accomplished quilter and has a variety of quilts on display.  Please stop by and see them.  We will have a “Meet and Greet” Saturday May 19th from 11-2.  
Here are a few of her quilts, but they are much better in person.
If you would like to be a featured quilter in our Heritage Classroom/Gallery, please contact Marlene at the shop.  It is OK to nominate a friend, too.
