Joys Snowmen Quilt


You know ladies, I AM SOOO EXCITED!!!! Christmas is getting closer and closer. And even though some people think I'm crazy. I wanted to play Christmas music, like last month! (Kathy said no) So I'll just have to wait closer to Thanksgiving. :)
So staying in the Christmas spirit. Enter Joys Snowmen Quilt. It has 11 different embroideries in it, including 2 rather intricate scenes. Everyone just seems to fall in love with this one. I don't know if its the quilt itself or the cute adorable snowmen gracing it's top:) Either way the class has been a huge success as you can see in the picture below. Our class is slaving over their machines. Embroidering like crazy.













This is what their finished project may resemble. :) And its only one square! Remember there's 9 more squares just like this one. Well not just like it, but you know what I mean. :)













By the way, Joy used 5 different embroidery designs to create this scene. :)

Log Cabin Class

Our beginners class is wrapping up their Log Cabin quilts. And WOW do they look good!!! So good in fact that Donna requested I put their pictures on-line for all to see.:) Just check out how different each one is, and notice their blocks are layed out to create a wonderful design.































































We just love this bright quilt and the design. We don't get a lot of bright Log Cabin quilts. Everyone does them in traditional colors. Those are gorgeous, but we love when someone steps outside the box to create a more contemporary feel with a traditional pattern!

Turning Twenty Class

Donna's class, Turning Twenty, has been a huge hit! She was 4 classes this class schedule, and this is the first time we've run it!! This quilt is awesome! It does great with fabric lines, seasonal or theme fabric. And it always ends up just fabulous!!
This first quilt is using the same fabric line that Donna used in Bonnie's wedding gift. Which you can see on one of our other blogs.



















This quilt is from a fun, bright Moda line.


















This quilt inspired more fall bundles.


















Another pastel bundle.




















This quilt was made by Tammy. It was her idea to make a Turning Twenty in Christmas fabric. We liked it sooo well. We made Christmas bundles. Then Fall bundles. Who knows what else will follow, anything's possible! :)

Wilson's On The Road


This past Monday, we had a stand set up down at the Valley Mall. Joy was nominated to "babysit" the stand. She said it went pretty good. Everyone was fascinated by the Pfaff 2170 that she took along. She had the machine embroidering flowers all day. She also met a few new customers. Welcome to Wilsons, ladies!!:)

Iris's Friendfolk

One of our fine, fine customers, Iris, showed up a her Friendfolk quilt class. Her top was finished and she had added two borders of the log cabin (we only had one) Her quilt is huge! The fabric she used in the log cabin is scrappy and just wow! And I loved how she added little touches of herself in this quilt. I don't know if you can see it, but on the picture to your left. The house has a little scotty dog button. There are other little stuff like the flower in the girls hat, & the flower buttons on the flower pot. This class wasn't completely full, & most of the ladies, we've known simply forever:)
They had a lot of fun doing this class, I didn't ask them but the noise volume speaks for itself ;)
