Clubhouse Chatter….

Geeze..it’s been a while since my last Clubhouse News Report!  I must be having fun!  I sure hope that I can remember who made what..?  If I get projects mixed up, my sincere appologies…but I AM old…very old…

First up, several of the ladies attended a three day workshop at Quilter’s Faire Quilt Shop to make the Professional Bag~

This bag has so many bells and whistles, pockets and flaps that it is no wonder it took three lessons to make!  Here Kim is demonstrating this flap which can hook over the handle of your pull suitcase…genius!

And a peak inside at all the pockets and flaps…

Even a built in key fob!

And a cell phone holder!

I can see being super organized with this purse…or super lost!  So many pockets to check for things!

And here’s Karen’s version of the same purse!  Gorgeous, one of a kind bags!!

I’m not sure who owns these lovely blocks…but they are dang sweet!  They were just sitting there waiting to have their picture taken….  Actually they were waiting to get ironed and I had my camera poised and ready!

And Jan has finished her wonderful Dogwood Quilt!  Just lovely!

Check out JoAnn’s t-shirt!!  All I can say is, it’s a good thing that she’s not a gun toting mama…haha

IMG_4041

JoAnne may not pack a gun but she sure packs a wallop when making table toppers….

IMG_4042

Here it is quilted…it’s a Kansas Troubles pattern and it is very sweet!

The One That Got Away….

Imagine my surprise when Clubhouse Chris pulled out this magazine…

                 IMG_3991 - Copy

I stared at the cover…nope…I had NEVER seen this one before!  AUTUMN 2014…just last season!  Now how did we miss this one?  It’s a good one too! Check it out…

IMG_3992 - Copy

(No that’s not my thumb on the left!! I had to look twice too!!   heehee…looks like a witch’s thumb but it’s part of the display!!)

CHECK OUT THE HOUSE QUILT!! EUREKA!  LOVE IT!

IMG_3993 - Copy

It’s called “All Around Town’'” by the Country Threads Ladies!  They score a touchdown with this one!!

This one is a Norma Whaley’s Timeless Traditions!  Gorgeous as usual!

IMG_3995 - Copy

Looks like a Jan Patek…(this is a guess…so I apologize if I am wrong!)

IMG_3996 - CopyIMG_3998

This one is called ‘White Gourd’ and it’s by Lisa DeBee Schiller…no guess work here!:o)  Very sweet!

                  IMG_3997 - Copy

And check out THIS ONE…just lovely…and could hang all year round!

IMG_4000

So many fantastic patterns!!  Yes, Quiltmania has done it again!!  What a wonderful magazine, chock full of goodness!  How this one got away is beyond me!  It came out about the same time as the Nov./Dec #104…and I was watching for THAT one!! 

Yup…it’s the one that got away….  I can sure sympathize with the fisherman’s tall tales …can’t you?  Just for the halibut!

Have a wicked Wednesday and Happy Stitching!~P

Come-On-A-My House…

Lyn, from Hemet, has jumped on the Wee House Band Wagon!!  Her goal was to make six houses in the month of February and she did just that!!  She is planning on turning these sweet houses into a wall hanging. 

Lyn's houses

Thanks for sharing, Lyn!!   I sure hope you share your finished product with us…we would love a tour of your neighbourhood once the streets are in and the landscaping is completed (code for sashing, borders and binding:)!

Have a SUNNY Sunday and Happy Stitching!~P
