Wonder Clip Bowls...



I started making Wonder Clip Bowls

and I couldn't stop...



I used the Lazy Girl pattern...





Joan Hawley's patterns are excellent.

She does a great job explaining the

one way zip technique.





I've made 2 dozen of these zip bags

and they are still FUN to stitch up!





Each one easily holds 50 Wonder Clips!





They open wide so it is easy

to reach in and grab a clip when you need it.





Santa will deliver these to all of the

good little Quilters I know!




Do you remember this little girl?


All of our calves are black...

except this one.

We call her......Golden Girl




Look at her now.....all grown Up!


We were out in the pasture last night and

I snapped this photo of our gorgeous girl.

She is bred and will have her first baby

next year.

Airplane Quilt.......Piecing


I have had this airplane pattern for 

20 years or more...



It is time to create a baby quilt...





No rotary cutting directions in this pattern...

Just templates to cut out.

My template making skills are rusty.

It has been awhile since I've 

done this sort or piecing.




Here is the first block cut out and 

ready for piecing...

There were no directions at all in the pattern.

They did include a piecing diagram.

I pinned it to the flannel board for reference.





I started piecing from the tail of the plane

and worked my way up to the propeller...





By Saturday evening.....4 airplane blocks done.




I was out to the barn early on Sunday

to get the animals fed and the chores done

so I could spend the day in the Thread Shed...



6pm Sunday evening...

The airplane quilt top is complete.

46 inches square.


Tomorrow I will get this basted

and on the Sweet 16 this week.


p.s.  I finished The Kittens Quilt top, but

forgot to take a photo.

It is ready for machine quilting.

I will share images soon.


More to Come!

Collage Houses....Class Samples


I spent the morning embellishing 




Collage Houses

Timtex or Peltex 2 sided fusible

covered with Home Dec fabrics





I gave them a bird house shape,

then embellished them with metal house numbers,

fishing weights, rusty nails and a key.






These are always a favorite with the students!
