SHOW AND TELL





Royce is so amazingly creative.  She inspires us all with her whimsical free-style approach to creating.  The first three pieces are about the size of place mats and the two bottom pieces are postcard quilts.  Studying her work is like going on a scavenger hunt.  In fact, see how many of these things you can find:  stones, metal, wire, interesting fabric textures that she has created, old watch parts, polymer clay pieces, and last but not least, parts of Stefanie's old screen door.  Royce told us that she trades fabric with the wife of a watch repair guy who sends her all the old watch parts that would've gone into the trash.

Trudy made this scrumptious chenille scarf out of four layers of fabric.  You can use a cutter like this to make all those tiny cuts.  The foot keeps you from cutting through your bottom layer.

Ashley, our newest member, made this super hero quilt for a friend's son.  He's going to love cuddling up in this, with its lofty batting and minky backing.

This is Stefanie's version of the Dilly Dally Pattern by Thimble Blossoms.  She used Vanessa Christenson's Simply Style fabric line.  This sounds cheesy but it's true, Stefanie does not dilly dally when it comes to cranking out quilts.

Jayne is making a set of place mats for a friend.  At first glance it looks like she found a great wavy print.  On closer inspection you can see that each color is a different fabric and that she sewed all those wavy pieces together.


This is the wallet that Jenny made for a swap friend.  She used this wallet pattern by Oliver + S.  What a lucky swap friend to receive such a cute wallet!
