I just love it when you put your own "spin" on my designs!!! Penny Pierce from Lakefield, Ontario Canada, really made Snow Days her own! She added an icy pond by the creek, complete with "shinny hockey" players (I've no idea what that is...I'm sure every Canadian out there does tho!) They're SO COOL!!!
Then she made the schoolhouse flag the Canadian Maple Leaf!
And added extra snoballers throwing snowballs from the interior pieced area of the quilt!!! I don't know about YOU....but I'm EXTREMELY impressed!!!! SO,SO...SO great Penny!!!
Here's another "spin" on Tea Party from Christina Smith from Leavenworth, Kansas. She said that she used nine of the blocks in this quilt and the other three for a table runner! It's beautiful Christina! Good job!
These two garden angels were made by Carol Gerety of Lansing, Kansas. She hand quilted the angel of winter with perle cotton (don't you love the way that looks Carol?...back when I had the time (wow...no free time now!) I hand quilted everything and my favorite method was with perle cotton!)
Carol says she made the winter angel for her Aunt Ellen and says "She's written to me about how she's loved reviewing seed catalogs and now is losing her eyesight, so I thought she could feel my stitches." What a lovely thing to do for her Carol! It's a beautiful lap quilt and I'm sure she'll be able to feel the love in all of your work.
This "Love" pillow was made by Nancy Guilfoil. She wrote the name herself and added flowers to it. You did such a beautiful job of personalizing this Nancy! It's so delicate and "little girl"!! I'm sure the new mom loved it. It's so very sweet!
These are pictures of a project bag made by Sharon Szekely. She says that she took this class last summer at Quiltmaker's Shoppe in Arlington, Washington and used scraps from another project to piece it....look at the side pieces of the bag!
She pieced them too!!!! That looks SO COOL!!!! You did a beautiful job!
This picture was sent in by our friend Shellee Jensen "Hiccup Girl". Isn't the snowman fabric fun??? I hope we see you at Quilt Market in Salt Lake! ?
