2018 Summer Session of Scrap Club hosted by Kevin the Quilter

Lone Star Legacies!
Yep.....that's what we call our most recent session of
Scrap Club hosted by Kevin the Quilter!
Oh what fun we had this past summer investigating this very
recognizable quilt pattern while learning easy ways of putting it together
thanks to Jordan Fabrics, and Donna Jordan's amazing tutorials on this pattern.

And, if I may interject here my family's appreciation for your prayers and concern
over my little Mama.  She is doing so much better, and she wants to send her personal
thanks to you all! 
Several of the quilters in Scrap Club hosted by Kevin the Quilter were selfless and willing to take over for me, and I appreciate them so much.  But, Mother Huffman insisted I go to the Final Reveal of our Lone Star projects. 
The participation level was amazing!
The quilts are amazing!
Let's face facts.....the quilters are amazing!



 2018 Summer Session
Scrap Club hosted by Kevin the Quilter
Lone Star Legacies

May I have your attention please......
this is going to be a very long blog post.......
but so worth the read to the end!

So grab yourself a quilty snack and drink,
and sit back and enjoy the show!
I will insert commentary where needed.

in O'Fallon, Missouri
played host to us once again.
What a lovely ball room they have!
Check them out for your next social event!

I had to thank my quilting angels
Dar, Ree, and Linda!
I can't thank these ladies enough for always
being willing to help me out!

 Signing in at the Scrap Block Lotto table......

Not pictured is Barb who was 
beyond thrilled to win these
blocks!

Lillie was excited to share the beautiful quilt top
she had made after winning the
Scrap Block Lotto blocks
from July.
Isn't this gorgeous!?!?!

We also had an impromptu challenge to use up
the scraps left over from the scraps and 
strip sets we had leftover from
making our Lone Star quilts.
The quilters voted for best use of scraps
among the many ingenious projects. 
























 Robin won 2nd place for making
this colorful change purse.

 And, Roxann won 1st place with this
beautiful basket......

which can double as a hat!
LOLOLOLOLOL


And then it was time to share our Lone Star projects.
First were the jelly roll Lone Stars.
Quilters weren't required to quilt their projects
and could use patterns other than the 
tutorial from Jordan Fabrics.
Some of the quilts may be larger, however,
the Lone Stars in these quilts were
made using the jelly roll tutorial.
And, some quilters made more than one project!
AMAZING!

 Kind of out of my comfort zone here......












































Weren't all of them amazing????
The winner of this category's drawing was Susan.
Susan won a $100 gift card from
Missouri Star Quilt Company.
My apologies that there is no
photo available.

Next are the large versions of Lone Star projects.
Some quilters used patterns other than the
Jordan Fabrics' tutorial.












WOW! WOW! WOW!
I just love looking at these gorgeous works of art!
 This is Sandy who was beyond excited to 
win the drawing for this category!
She received a $150 gift certificate to the
Missouri Star Quilt Company.
 
 One last beauty shot from the quilters of 
Scrap Club hosted by Kevin the Quilter.

  1. Was Dar behind the camera? I didn't see a photo of her with a quilt. What stunning quilts. Just a small change in fabrics or settings can make such a huge difference. Enjoy your guild talk on Monday. We'll be waiving as we drive to Rolla.

  2. WOW! WOW! WOW! What energy you all have. I have a hunch its from the fearless leader who isn't embarrassed to wear a bowl on his head as a hat! The quilts are beyond amazing and so stellar! I hope your mum is continuing to feel better.
