Lilly Mae wanted to check to see if you all are paying attention?
This is NOT the surprise clue post.
I just wanted to share a little update.
Did I get you?????
(Laughed in an evil scientist sort of way again!)
Isn't that an incredible photo of Lilly Mae???
My amazingly talented friend......
well, she has many talents, but, I digress.....
Alycia of Alycia Quilts
sent me an awesome thank you card with this
little stinker's photo on it!
I! LOVE! IT!
I have been able to host a few workshops
in my home studio, The Quilt Cave as of late.
I am LOVING the fact that I can share my studio
space with other quilters that want to learn
various techniques that I love and use in my quilts.
"String Star" progress by some students........
And here they are with some completed tops and pieces!
These quilters were a hoot!
We had so much fun!
I love seeing quilters have an "AHA!!!" moment!
I had the most wonderful privilege of meeting a
very popular scrappy quilter that resides in the Metro St. Louis area.
This is Tea of TeaQuilts.
We have corresponded for a while now, and she
surprised me with a visit during our last
Scrap Club hosted by Kevin the Quilter
meeting in August.
Please check out the link I provided where Tea shares
videos and tutorials about quilting on YouTube.
This is the beginning of an awesome friendship Tea!
I took a little road trip with my friend Linda, and we
happened upon an auction and saw some quilts hanging
on the clothesline out back.
Isn't this an interesting pattern in chrome yellow and indigo prints?
Anyone want to give their opinion as to the name of this
It looks like a bear paw variation to me?
Also look at the altered layout?
Interesting.....but, the auction was nowhere near the quilt,
so we left it there.
Having a lot of poultry here at The Quilt Cave
means I have a lot of feed bags.
I ran across the tutorial below and have been making
some of these bags as of late.
Enjoy the video!
Here are a couple I have made.
And last, I want to express my heartfelt
prayers for those of you living in and around
Houston, TX. I want each and every one of you
to be safe, and well.
Like Bonnie Hunter says, "things" can be replaced.....YOU can't!
Be on the lookout for a surprise clue!
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
Keep on Quilting!
Kevin the Quilter
