Okay, It's Back. :)

How was your weekend? It was beautiful here, topped off by a fabulous Strip Club!
Ken and Karen were still cruising about the Caribbean so Wendy stepped in to be Vanna for a Day. (Didn't they just do that on Wheel of Fortune?) First up for display- Angie's beautiful, finished quilt.  Last month's pattern was Rising Star, by Cozy Quilt Designs
Angie is our own rising star- this is only her third strip club quilt!

 Look at this! It's Angie's All Squared quilt! This is one of our newest, free bundle patterns designed by the sweet Laura Coons!

 Deanna completes her Samurai Squares quilt with a luscious coral accent color. It turned what could have been a bold and sassy quilt into one that took a walk on the softer side.

The lovely Miss Barbara made her Rising Star quilt with a pale mint green background. Guess what? She didn't like it but, the rest of us loved it! It's soft and dreamy. I think it would be a perfect picnic quilt. Or, a cuddle-up-on-the-sofa-with-Grandma quilt. Or, a Barbara-it-is-gorgeous quilt.

 Jennifer's All Squared sings in patriotic red, white and blue! As she said, there's not much room for error in this quilt. You use almost every bit of the 5 one-yard cuts in a bundle. Eek.

 Deanna's Rising Star. Hey, wait a minute! This looks a little different than the rest of them!
That's because Deanna used her strips that were destined for  Beach City Blooms to make her quilt. No need to let them go to waste! Just make them up in a different pattern. Clever.

Didn't these girls make the prettiest quilts? You should come join us! Next month we will be making All Stars using soft reds, browns, pinks and greens. The strip set has a very old-fashioned verging on Colonial feel to it. I can't wait to see every one's take on this quilt!

Oh, and if you were with us last Saturday, here's your cheat sheet for drawing the lines on your little strips.

You're welcome. :)
