Comfortable Companions

We've had a great quilt show hanging at the shop since the first of the year - our annual Staff Quilt Show. Current and former staff members have been working for 2 years to get ready for this show. We formed partnerships and/or groups and selected quilts to make with a common theme. Some groups used the same pattern. Some used the same concept or block. Some used the same fabric selection. Needless to say, we had more ideas than we were actually able to accomplish!
We had planned to take the show down on January 10 but have decided to leave it up for another week. If you want to see it, you still have a chance. We'll be taking it down mid-afternoon on Saturday, January 17. If you aren't able to come in to see the quilts, enjoy the slide show below.

Impressionist Stained Glass

Just finished a sample from the book The New Classics, Impressionist Stained Glass by Brenda Henning. We'll be offering a class in March. It was fun and easy to make. Took just a couple afternoons of sewing. We are in the process of making kits for all 4 of the wallhangings in the book.
