A quick visit to Bernina World of Sewing:
It was Saturday, so I just HAD to take a rainbow photo for my RSC Quilter friends to let them know that I was thinking about them:
Look at these fun project bags:
And do you see the "guilt in a quilt" shown in the photo below? Seriously! Thanks for the reminder Bernina World. I have neglected a longtime UFO just like this. It was sewn into 4 panels and only needs to be assembled and finished:
Soon enough, I arrived at Tiffany's...
Oh, look! Lisa brought her sewing table:
Carol is making good progress on her current quilt:
We all went up to Tiffany's Sweat Shop to see her new longarm:
She was loading Denise's quilt on the frame:
Her process is made quicker with these handy plastic clamps:
Back downstairs, Carol gets back to work:
Denise is busy constructing the bodice of a new dress:
Joy is working on finishing up her "Yucky Green" Scrap Basket:
Meanwhile, Tiffany has loaded the batting and top of Denise's quilt:
Let the basting begin and a little quilting...
... Before Denise takes the reins to give longarming a try:
Carol looks on, as Tiffany coaches Denise:
Lisa is giving her stitch ripper a workout:
Denise has finished her bodice:
Tiffany is trimming up some HSTs:
Here's were this post meets the Design Floor:
Oh, shiny!! Tiffany has her Fair Quilt up on the wall...
... And she has a Barn Quilt on another wall:
Hmm... Why is it taking so long for Denise to get a picture???
Joy is smiling and NOT talking...
Aha! Tiffany is being a wiseguy:
Speaking of Tiffany, she uses this product to avoid ruler slippage:
Block number one is done! Nice job, Tiffany:
No photos of the intermediate steps...
... Here is Joy's completed "Yucky Green" Quilted Scrap Basket:
Tiffany kept shooting...
... Shot after shot, waiting to see if Denise had any antics:
Bound. On a much-improved Pfaff sewing machine. What a relief:
Denise brought the Holiday Stocking that she finished recently...
... And got her dress put together:
It's time to play! The zipper will have to wait for another day:
I decided to make a Tiny Thread Catcher from the off-cuts of my Jumbo "Yucky Green" Scrap Basket:
I love making something from what might have gone in the trash:
Lisa is pressing her scrappy 9-Patch blocks:
Tiffany's stack of blocks is growing:
Denise applies binding to Joy's Tiny Thread Catcher:
Joy stitched on a Christmas gift:
Lisa dissects a pillow panel:
Denise contemplates a decorative stitch:
Tiffany's terribly tall tree with a ton of twinkle lights:
Denise finished Joy's Mini "Yucky" Green Quilted Thread Catcher:
She's happy to have all of the blocks for her newest quilt done:
Joy is all set to make some blocks for Covered in Love:
The first stage is done:
Soon after this photo, Joy started the clean-up train:
Her blocks are complete, it's getting late, and she has the better part of an hour drive home:
Lisa is making sure she doesn't lose anything in transit:
Tiffany continued assembling blocks:
Carol's pile of blocks is growing:
Oh! Just ONE more project! Joy moved on to Frolic:
As she sewed, the Pfaff began to sound sick, AGAIN!! Denise offered to take the machine BACK to the doctor on Monday, as she's going to pick up her own. What a good friend!
Until next time...
QUILT til you wilt!!!
QUILT til you wilt!!!
