Monday Show & Tell

I have again pictures to share...YAH!! We love pictures - well I do anyway! :D
Thanks for all the input on the last post regarding postage, I feel much better about the whole thing!

Let's see....first Quilt Pink Blocks. Our shop received the first blocks from a lj community member, Joanne (user name sewingjo in ljland). My boss (whom I forgot to mention these were coming her way) was taken by surprised and more so when I brought in the another block that Karol-Ann made for Quilt Pink.

If you are willing to participate, please send a block, 12 1/2" unfinished to our shop. I'm the one in charge of piecing together a top and my boss will longarm quilt the quilt to donate to Quilt Pink. You can mail blocks directly to Patches, by October 31, 2007:

Joanne's blocks are the ones on the outside of the maple leaf block. The block on the left is called a Boxed Pinwheel and the one on the right is called Grandmothers Cross. The Maple Leaf was done of course by Karol-Ann. I'm working on mine today. I picked out 6 fabrics to make a few (notice the stack of pink fabrics on the cutting table)!

I received my Four Season Swap Quilt on Saturday and I'm soo in love with it. It was created by Teresa from Wales (how cool is that) and was concerned the new owner of her quilt wouldn't love it....I SOOOOOO love it.

I'm itching to post my finally pictures of my quilt which is on its way to its new owner, hopefully later this week I can share those images. I'm wish I could keep it, I'm very happy with how it turned out!

Well my witches & kitties are sashed together now. I think I finally decided on a simple orange border with lime binding. Now to see if by some miracle I can get this quilted within the next 3 weeks.

And finally a picture from the shop, the "brights" corner.

Manic Monday post will be done later this afternoon - need to draw last week's winners and take pictures for the offering this week! :D

    Your quilt is fantastic and the witchy quilt is going to be too cute. Oooooo, the bright corner is where I would love shopping.

  2. Wow, everything looks great. I really like the halloween quiilt. Is it an original pattern? I like the idea of lime green for the binding.

  3. The Halloween quilt is great! If you don't finish it in three weeks, there is always next year! LOL

    Could just sit in that bright corner all day and dream.
