One Block Wonder is a brand-new class for us! You can use soooo many different types of fabrics with One Block Wonder! It is so exciting to go into class and watch their quilts evolve! Funky, Retro...
A Elegant floral...
Marbled look...
Fish take on a whole new look!
A gorgeous bouquet...
Bright, artsy, geometric...
And a graduated water scenes... Mae was the only student to try those little squares in her quilt. We decided her quilt just wouldn't have been the same without them. We loved all these quilts! I want to sit down and do one, all you have to do is find the perfect fabric ;)

Viking and Pfaff Club this month was loaded with inspiration! We think the best part of the Clubs are the Show-&-Tells ;) Judy brought this huge quilt, inspired by Bonnie's Grand Elegance Quilt. You can see the four Grand Hoop designs in the very center.
Marty showed us her version of Donna's Gardeners Tote. This tote is so versatile, you can make it a diaper bag or a beach tote... Anything!
Jan brought the Heart Wall Hanging from this past years, Jenny Haskin School. She has embellished it with a broken pearl necklace and some sewing notions. Really neat!
Anne used our Valance Pattern to make this valances for her kitchen. She made them in three different sizes. Anne used Viking embroidery card, Funky Flowers.
Anne also made these adorable little purses. I love the black one. =)
Heidi brought her "little black dress". We show cased the dress earlier in our blog. She made the entire dress. She embroidered it and crystaled it =) with Swarovski crystals.
The jeans, Mary Beth is holding, had holes in the knees. So using some real creativity Mary Beth appliqued some hearts over them. She fixed up the matching shirt, making it the cutest little outfit!
Mary Beth also took Viking card, Crazy Patch, to make this placemat for her Mother. She matched the fabric perfectly with her Moms dishes. Note her Mom thinks her new placemats are to nice to use ;)
Tonya brought this cute, adorable snowman wall hanging.
Jeanne with her very first quilt! The Log Cabin pattern.
Our feature this time was the Chenille foot and the Sew On Button foot. Bonnie made this warm and cuddly throw =)
We also brought out a Fabric Mover with Stitch Regulator. Cindy is trying it out. Go Cindy!
We had some special visitors =) Rebekah, Lauren, and Lilly. They did such a good job sitting there quietly the whole time.
Rebekah thought it was important that we meet her Snoopy. We looked at the pictures in her Noah's Ark book more than once. ;)
Happy Valentines Day!

ABC's of Embroidery

We had a brand new class this time around. ABC's of Embroidery! Basically the ladies brought in their "problem projects". Some embroidery projects that just needed some extra guidance.
Kathy showing us how to use Wilson's all time favorite hoop! The Pfaff's Creative All Fabric hoop, and Viking's Do All Quilters Hoop!
Jeanne quilted her Log Cabin Quilt with her Do All Quilters Hoop.
This is for Jan's very own little Princess ;)
Marty was putting her Viking Hat Hoop to good use.
His and Hers caps =) Good job, Marty! That is a difficult job, and she did three!!
Millie was doing her applique-in-the-hoop embroideries for her WildFlowers class. A brand new quilt for this time 'round.
Carol was doing pillow cases, using her Endless Embroidery Hoop! Her design matched her fabric perfectly! It was gorgeous!
Debbie did this really cute ladybugs on a pattern. She did the embroidery before she cut it out and pieced it. Brilliant! 'Cuz the finished project would have been too tiny to hoop.
