Another Gorgeous Sunday

The sun has come out to warm our bones again, things are blooming, the cherry trees are working their magic and we are just puttering around today getting a few things done before we leave for Calgary and the big Bday Party for my mom……. we get to see the kids’ new house too, very excited for that!   and as always, we’ll get a great visit in with my brother and sister-in-law I hope!

So, from Wednesday this week May 29th until Wednesday next week, June 5th, Cathie will be having a Boss Is Away Sale.  There will be selected bolts  on sale, buy 1m for $10.  Buy 2m off the same bolt $9/m, Buy 3m off the same bolt, $8/m and buy 4m or more off the same bolt for $7/m.  All other, regular priced items will be 20% off.  So you can stock up on pieces for Backs, summer projects and build your stash!

Here’s some quilts that have been quilted lately,

ImageThis is Leona’s quilt, it’s a split 9 Patch.  She calls is Starry Starry Night, so we quilted it with stars and loops.


This is Hedy’s Celebration in Stonehenge Aphrodite collection…. if this looks familiar, it is the quilt we did as a block of the month last summer, this is her third one, each a different colour, each a different look.  It’s not a difficult quilt to make but it is a good one to hone your skills….. the pattern is available here at Flamingo Quiltworx.

This quilt was made by Rae for one of her clients.  The butterfly is done with silver bias tape in a stained glass technique and the photos are printed onto fabric and applied to a musical staff.  The quilt is for a young lady’s graduation present.  Her mother wrote a poem that we quilted around the edge on the border…. it turned out pretty well!  There’s also a sun in the corner and the quilt will be finished with prairie points!  Beautiful job Rae!


Here are some of Sue P’s quilts, the first one is for her grandson, we put stars and moons and sons on it!  The second is made out of Blitzen by Basic Grey for Moda, the pattern is available here , about a third of the way down the page,  enjoy the other free patterns from Moda fabrics, we have lots of the fabrics in the store.


And this is Sue W’s first Table Topper, pretty fall colours……


Here’s a picture of my wisteria.  It grows all over the gazebo and has now climbed up the big trees beside the gazebo too!  It’s eye catching to see the purple flowers all the way up the pine tree.004006
