Quilts! Wallhangings! Jackets and Rugs!

Well Ladies I have quite a back log of pictures. These are from the March Club, I think. Susan has done our Hummel quilt and changed the colors. They are reds and blues with splashes of orange. And the borders were inspired by some window shutters in German? Susan, if that's wrong, let me know.
Tonya did this awesome Stack N Whack Pinwheel in purples. Purple isn't my favorite color, but I LOVE this quilt!
Jeanne made this Turning Twenty out of dark primitive colors. It was one of her first quilts and it is HUGE! And she did an awesome job!

We have this adorable line of Dick, Sally, and Jane (and Spot) fabric. Jan used that line to make this wonderful little tote. The pattern is Bow Tucks Tote. Bev made a smaller version, you'll have to ask to see it next time your in. ;)
Tracy did an Attic Window wall hanging with Redwork embroideries. Using Cactus Punch card, Redwork 1.
Heidi made this king size version of our Joy's Snowman Quilt. She has been really creative with the quilting. There are quilted embroidered snowmen everywhere, and she is using her Viking Fabric Mover with Stitch Regulator to do some free motion around the embroideries

Marty made this beautiful quilted jacket. Oh I love those colors! Its patchwork-y down the front. Gorgeous fabric on the outside, funky stripes on the inside.
Hope changed our Raggy Strip Quilt. We had applique in the plain blocks and she has embroideries. I love when people change our samples and make it theirs!
Ann brought a braided rug. It looks like she used a regular floral cotton print. I've never seen a floral braided rug. Usually their scrappy and use woven, plaid prints. Good job, Ann!

Martha Pullen 2007

Wow! We had sooo much fun with our Martha Pullen School 2007! The "serger class" did a serger quilt. A sewing caddy, for all your little sewing notions, that you just have to keep with you at all times =)This is the serger quilt.
Here's a close up of the embellished center.
Jody giving the class the next set of instructions. Jody is the Queen of Sergers! The class got to use brand new 936 Viking Huskylock sergers! =)
Making sure the-header-of-the-lace-is-under-the-wall. Oh forgive me, I didn't mean to break out in song ;)
Our finished embellished center, ready to put borders on. The quilt was quilt-as-you-go.
Susans done!!
Marie put some gorgeous lace under her binding. Very nice touch!
A few other samples Jody brought with her. Using the same technique.
A pillow case.
A little girls dress.
A close up of the bodice. Wow! So intricate and all done on a serger!
The other class was the "pillow case class". They used brand new Viking Designer SE's. They did lace work, pintucks, and decorative stitches.
A close up of the pillow case. It was harder than it looks. Shaping the lace, sewing it on, cutting the fabric behind.
The class slaving over their lace shaping boards. What are they doing?
Pinning their lace into shape!
Pintucks! Made sooo easy with a Pintuck Foot.
Sewing the pintucks inside their lace shapes.
The last day was Show & Tell, and more ideas. Smocking by machine, puffing irons, & software.
Carol had this ring which has her mother's picture.
Jan brought this little crocheted apron.
Susan brought a jacket she had embroidered over in the Saudi Arabia, I believe. She said some teenage guys did this embroidery on a treadle!
This gorgeous napkin, Beth brought!
Beth also had this little piece of lace & we decided it could have been a collar.
Sadie tryed on one of the samples.
Happy Mothers Day!
